So I am looking for a door alarm, possibly one with a security system, in order to let my husband know if our son is trying to sneak out of the house. Our son is delayed and has trouble understanding why he needs to not do certain things without mom or dad. We need something that we can set to have some sort of loud nuclear sound that will definitely wake up his father at 5:30 AM from the third floor. The other part that we will need is the ability to be able to temporarily turn it off so that I can leave at 4 AM and for his father to return at 11:30 PM. We work opposite shifts, but no matter what time we put out son to bed he somehow gets up really early. Simply putting a chain on the door is not an option because he will just grab a step stool and unhinge it.

P.S.

We greatly appreciate any help! Thank you so much!

You may want to ask in the autism forum on Babycenter. There are many parents there who have children who need this.

There are also sites that sell quite a wide variety of alarm products for adults with dementia or Alzheimer's. There are door alarms for bedroom doors as well as window alarms, rug alarms, bed alarms, etc.

Good luck.

We had to put a double-keyed deadbolt on my parents' front door when my dad started wandering from dementia. That would be the easiest solution because you would be able to lock it when you leave for work, without it having to be something that could only be done from inside.

I was looking for door and window alarms mostly. I will start looking into products for Alzheimer's as well now. Thank you.

I had to look this up since I wasn't sure of what it was. Thank you for the suggestion but I don't think that we are allowed to do this. We rent an apartment and would not be able to install this. We do have a deadbolt on our door but he can just unlock it from the inside.
