Dough does not rise
I am not a baker but I do know dough rises either by the action of live yeast producing carbon dioxide or by the chemical action of bacteria + chemicals as in soda bread.
Soda bread doesn't rise very much and produces a fairly dense bread. A portion of active dough is kept from every batch to start activity in the next batch and in this way the cultures in many artisan breads are unchanged over the last century or two.
Yeast risen bread dough needs 10 minutes of energetic kneading after mixing and then about an hour in a warm place until it has doubled in volume before baking. Be sure to use live yeast and be careful with the amount of salt in the dry ingredients.
There are many recipes online.

Wired doorbell. Trying to connect to pre-existing one.
Locate and check the doorbell system transformer for power. There should be about 24 volts A/C on the secondary side (the side with the smaller exposed wires that go to your doorbell).
The doorbells at the doors are just switches and it sounds like you have already tested them correctly by touching the wires together.
It sounds like a power issue - your electrician may have just disonnected the power wiring after installing the wireless system which would have been the right thing to do.
