    My special needs 16 year old got picked up by Lyft at 3:30 am early Monday after climbing out the two story window. He and a friend went roaming around during the wee hours before being located by the sheriff's dept at the mall.

    I need a door alarm to make noise or send a notification to my and the wife's phones. Probably be nice if it could tell me when his window gets opened however he got scrapped up on the way down so I don't think he'll do that again.

    It needs to be something that can be easily disable by a quick hit or cover being removed.

    Let me know if you have any ideas. I have the Ring for the exterior doors but I need something for his bedroom door. I also don't set the Ring at night because the puppy has be pee in the middle of the night a few times each week. Last thing I need is the alarm going off at 2:00 am because I forgot to shut it off.

    Thank you

    Probably best to have a flush mounted reed switch installed into the window frame. Any other type of reed switch will be surface mounted and easily messed with. Do you have an intruder alarm already?
