Cool project! When you say "connect your actual doorbell," what kind of doorbell is it, a standard AC one? Is this just putting your module in the middle of one of the wires going to the button from transformer/chime box?

I'm working on a doorbell project and figured I'd need an ACS712 current sensor since it's for a standard (North American) 10 VAC doorbell (with an unlighted button). That's based on research, being pretty green with hardware, so just curious if you're doing the same setup or something different. Thanks!
