I've purchased a vintage 12 volt Faraday school alarm bell as part of the decor in my 70's decorated work shop. The shop is over 100 feet from the house and I'd like a way for my wife or kids to use it as a way to call me to dinner etc from the house using Insteon. Which device(s) would be the most trouble free to hook to bell to achieve this use?

Still fumbling through this stuff!

An I/O Linc can handle up to 5 amps @ 30 volts, so you should have no problem with the bell.
