What is the proper way to install a Door Buzzer Alarm. I have the 2 contacts that go on the door the wire which is 1 red and 1 white. The transformer and the buzzer. I put the buzzer red wire on the nut marked load on the transformer and the contacts red wire I put on the nut marked 8volt and wired the 2 white wires together. Does this sound right? Anything would help.

If you talking about a security contact, where the door opens, the buzzer goes off, then this might help.

first of all if the contacts are magnetic, place the contact that is to be wired on the door frame, the magnet on the door,

Run the red wire from the transformer to one lead on the contact, from the other lead on the contact take the red to the buzzer. From the transformer run the white to the buzzer. The power will be on the red wire.

If this doesnt help post with more info. I've done hundreds of these
