Autism Awareness Month: Affordable Door Alarm Keeps Our Kids Safe

Many children with autism spectrum disorder are runners or elopers.  They can elusively slip out of the house without your knowledge.  This is really scary for parents of children with ASD.  My son has slipped out of the house while I was in the bathroom or while changing his brother’s diaper.   I would end up in a panic running around the house calling for him only to find that he slipped outside further increasing my panic.  We have adjusted our locks in our house because the option for an alarm system was not in our budget….until now!!  Only $22.48.

The GE 51107 Smart Home Wireless Alarm System Kit provides detection of entry or exit. These keypad door alarm units can be mounted on most doors and windows. Arming and disarming is done by entering a key code on the key pad.

The alarm sounds at a loud piercing 120 db, comparable to a rock concert in volume. If I am standing next to it I want to cover my ears. The piecing 120dB sound will be heard no matter where you are in your house.  However, your ability to hear this in other parts of your home will vary on distance and number of doors/walls in between you and the alarm.

It cannot be any easier to install.  Simply mount the door alarm unit to a door using hardware provided and key hole opening on back. Remove double sided tape from the back of the magnet unit. Mount it to the right or left side of door. That’s it!

Enjoy the convenience of a keypad-controlled door alarm without the hassle and high price of expensive security systems. The GE Door Alarm with Keypad Control uses magnetic sensors that sound an alarm when the door is opened and contact is broken. The easy-to-install alarm features a convenient keypad that lets you choose your own personal 4 digit code.

Another great option is to use the added chime mode to sound a tone when someone opens the door, or the delay features that ensure you can safely leave and enter the home without tripping the loud 120dB alarm. The delay feature on the alarm can not be deactivated. There is always a delay before the alarm sounds giving you time to punch in your code. Great for doors, sheds, sliding doors and garages.
