  • Yes you can simply tape them over and put into wall. You can also which I would suggest find where they all connect and disconnect them there as well. Just in case down the line someone does not short the wires out with a nail or removal of the board that supports the old button. If a short happens it can burn out the low voltage transformer quite quickly. You can find this transformer normally attached to the side of a light fixture box in basement or in some cases right at the doorbell if its self contained.
