  • We have an alarm system in our house and you have the option of turning on the door and window alarms...each time a door or window is open the alarm beeps. You can call any alarm company and I'm sure they will be able to install those for you.

  • Babies R Us has door alarms, we bought them because my autistic stepson would occasionally wander off. They are relatively inexpensive, you can install them on any door, and they are loud!

  • Alarm companies, Radio Shack, etc. All sorts of places can do what you are wanting.
    You also look for GPS that you keep in PJs, and pants to help if he does wander off.

  • You can buy door alarms at Home Depot or Lowes. We had to get them on all of our doors and windows when we had our pool put in. They aren't very expensive.
