Keeping children safe during the night
Do you have a child who wanders out of their bedroom at night?
We recently asked the London Fire Dept for advice because locking a child in their bedroom is against the Fire Code. Here is what we learned: Any bedroom door alarm works well, possibly one with a silent mode that sends a signal to the parents' cell phones. A few options have mild sounds that alert parents but are a normal sounds to children. The cellphone signal option is quite good.
Here's an example: Braumm WiFi Door and Window Smart Sensor Alarm (Amazon Canada)
