Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Game Show Buzzers

Here are ideas, plans and other resources for DIY buzzers compatible with Game Show Presenter software. (If you have a buzzer solution to share, let us know!)

If you'd rather buy than build a buzzer lockout system, there are many options at game show buzzer sellers and solutions.

Cool Projects:
buzzer

Blair Hollands, a professional quizmaster and Game Show Presenter customer, created his own wireless buzzer system and sent us this picture. The buzzer buttons (shown above in a carrying case) can be placed on the tables in a pub or event room, then teams of players buzz-in if they think they know the answer to a question. The wireless buttons send number keystrokes 1 through 6 to the 6 USB receivers plugged into the USB hub. That plugs into the laptop and can communicate directly with Game Show Presenter. This is one of the most professional looking "home-made" buzzer systems we've seen!

Another DIY buzzer system:

Here's another outstanding DIY buzzer project, though this one isn't wireless. Dan Hoover is the man with the solderless plan. But more importantly, his project is flexible and has great features and options. Dan lays out the plans to give you lots of choices.
