Common Residential Applications:
A common application for a door alarm is child safety! Mount a window/door alarm sensor on the pool gate or patio door leading out to the pool. When a child opens the gate, a wireless signal is sent to the plug-in receiver alerting you that the door has been opened. The system can also be expanded by adding additional receivers, both battery powered and plug-in versions.
If you have a swimming pool, most states require a warning device that will alert the guardian when someone opens a door leading out to the pool. Most parents want that additional peace of mind to know when a door opens, to protect the security of their children and guests.
You may also place a window/door alarm on a cabinet where you store cleaning supplies. If a child opens the door, the receiver plays a chime or alarm sound.
Many home owners neglect to lock up the storage shed. Place an outdoor rated door/window sensor on the shed door. If a user opens the door, an alarm or chime sound is played on the receiver.
