NO MORE GETTING OUTSIDE WITH THIS ALARM
Home alarm systems can be costly. But there are cheaper ways like Doberman Security products to help protect our kiddos. Why worry? One of my last posts had to do with wandering. I had mentioned then about Lil Man and his going out the door and not even knowing he did it. Well, it has gotten worse.
In kind of a funny story, I was talking with my husband last weekend how my plans were to go and buy a chain lock for our door. He didn’t seem to think it was really needed but wasn’t against the idea either. I went and opened the blinds to our bedroom window. I look outside and who is in our courtyard sitting at the gate playing? Yup, DJ! It was as if it was planned or DJ heard us; I looked at my husband and said: “and that is why we need a lock.” He was surprised to see our son outside for I think he really thought we could hear him try it. And here was the proof that you don’t always hear him go out.
So we not only have an added lock but an alarm. Hubby hates it, but I love it. Battery operated so will work even without power and has 2 functions. An actual alarm or a chime mode. I’m using the Chime mode and while it’s loud and taking some adjusting to it, it seems to have deterred DJ from trying to go outside. He knows it’s there and the noise it makes. And the best part is it was only $10. $10 for peace of mind and my child’s safety. Can’t beat that.
I found this at our local Home Depot store and no installation is needed. It is self-adhesive so you just stick it where you need it. Can be used for windows as well.
If you have a wanderer and don’t have the funds for a fancy security system, this is a wonderful alternative. In fact, Doberman Security has a few different products including a remote alarm. And again, all are priced under $30!
