Calling All Toddlers, ‘Er Moms! There’s A New Sheriff in Town: The Toddlermonitor Door Alarm

Have a Wandering Toddler?

Have a Wandering Toddler?

It’s no surprise that most toddlers want to explore their world – their world inside and sometimes outside of their homes. Curiosity is a natural part of childhood that should be allowed within limits. Sadly, according to Parents.com, about every 40 seconds, a child goes missing or is abducted in the United States. That’s a nightmare for parents!

The inspiration behind the Toddlermonitor door alarm actually stems from one of the creator’s own scary experiences with her child. She awoke to find that her son had wandered outdoors during the night without her noticing. Seeking monitoring options for her child, she wasn’t satisfied with what she found and decided to create a “simple motion detector on a door to help monitor the movements of toddlers” – thus the creation of the Toddlermonitor.

Setting up the Toddlermonitor door alarm is as easy as hanging it on your child’s bedroom door, and setting the device’s status. Whenever you’re ready to set the sensor to detect movement, such as during bedtime, change the device’s status to “On Guard.” If your child opens their door or even touches the device, it can vibrate and sound an audible alarm while also sending a notification to your smartphone or tablet.

The Toddlermonitor is powered by a rechargeable battery, made to last up to 5 days without charging. It also uses Bluetooth technology so you won’t have to worry about spotty Wi-Fi. The Toddlermonitor is generally able to provide coverage for homes between 2,000 and 3,000 sq. ft. It’s also been known to work in larger homes up to 5,000 sq. ft.

For parents concerned about baby choking on small pieces, this device has no additional parts to make it a choking hazard. It’s also made of non-toxic, BPA free silicone materials.

For Android devices, you can change your settings to allow the app to send your notifications while your phone or tablet is in the “Do Not Disturb” mode. This allows you to get alerts while you’re working from home and have your phone on silent and even while you’re asleep at night – no more sneakouts going unnoticed!
