Using as "childproofing"
on February 16, 2015
At nap last week my 3 year old decided to open all of his windows and yelled out them. Note that our windows in that room have a built in tab that blocks the window from opening... He managed to get the window open without even disengaging those tabs.
I haven't found any baby proofing items that I was confident he wouldn't hack or overpower so I decided to order these AND some additional baby proofing items. I installed them while he wasn't looking- this is key. They're pretty easy to switch off. I don't want him knowing they're there until he opens a window.
These make a great loud chime or alarm, depending on which setting you chose. You can also turn it off. I had to install mine on the right side of window in order to not block my access to switch. The battery pack is installed facing room for easy access- but the problem I have is that means my son can get to the batteries. It would be bad if he ate one, but he seems to be past that stage so I'm hoping it will be okay. I think you could install this differently by putting batteries towards window, but then you'd need to replace the sticker whenever you changed them and I don't believe it would install as nicely. In my ideal world that battery pack would be difficult to open.
For my sliding door, it works better because I was able to install it so high that he can't ever reach it. I used alarm for his room and chime for sliding door.
As you can see in photo, the pieces don't need to be side by side perfectly (for my windows and door, they couldn't be installed exactly next to each other).
