Alzheimer’s Door or Motion Detection Alarm w/ Portable Alert Monitor

Wander Alert Alarm Kits by SMPL gives you peace of mind while keeping your loved-one safe!

Wandering seniors who have Alzheimer's, Dementia or other forms of memory loss is the primary fear for any caregiver or family member. The best way to prevent wandering is to be alerted of a door being opened or by motion sensors being triggered that alert the caregiver.

Caregivers receive an audible, visual and vibrating alert when a door opens or motion is detected in a hallway or room.

Wireless monitor alarms are a preferred solution for elderly care since the portable alarm alerts the caregiver wherever they are in and around the home and does not startle the care recipient. Our portable alarm monitor can be clipped on caregiver’s clothing, put in a pocket or sit near your side on a table or nightstand. Set to ring/buzz/chime, flash and vibrate upon a breach of the monitored doors or areas. The alarm monitor is battery operated and effective within 100-250 feet of the sensors (transmitter) installed on a door, window, cabinet or room/hallway.

Our kits are easy to install, do not require internet, Bluetooth, wiring or a HUB (like Alexa), plus NO monitoring fees are required.

Additional SMPL Door Sensors, Motion Detectors and even HELP | SOS Button Pendants (up to 20 sensors) can connect with each alarm monitor to expand coverage for increased safety. Additional alarm monitors and kits can be paired for multiple caregivers.

Wander Alert kits are easily set-up and installed using the provided double-sided tape, making the system fully portable if you need to change the installation location. The device kits ship paired/connected right out of the box for simple and quick installation.

Caregiver and user feedback tell us that they also use the kits to monitor the kitchen and bathroom cabinet doors. If a loved one goes into a cabinet (perhaps at night when the caregiver is asleep) the alarm instantly and unmistakably alerts the caregiver.

  • Portable and vibrating alarm alerts caregiver wherever they are situated in and around the home within 250 ft. of sensors
  • WiFi is not required
  • Low cost solution & no monthly fees – utilizing low power consumption Radio Frequency technology
  • Wireless – designed for easy set-up in minutes
  • Additional SMPL Door Sensors, Motion Detectors and Call Button Pendants (up to 20 sensors) can connect with each (or additional) Alarms to expand coverage for increased safety

Caregiver Tip: Use on kitchen and bathroom doors to monitor food and medicine that can be abused. On an exit door, use the door alarm in conjunction with a chain lock (purchased at your hardware store or local home improvement center). This type of lock allows the door to open just far enough to set off the alarm, but not enough to let the person exit.

IMPORTANT ORDERING NOTE: Only order the "Additional Door Sensors", "Additional Motion Detectors", "Additional Help | SOS Call Button Pendants" or "Additional Alarm Monitor" if you already have one of these kits which includes "1 Door Sensor -or- 1 Motion Detector and 1 Monitor". You can find options to expand your kit under item #0071.

5 of 5 Wander alert September 9, 2019
Reviewer: Lori Casey  
Easy to install and use.  Alerts me when Mother gets up during night so I can check on her.

4 of 5 Seems to work well September 9, 2019
Reviewer: Randell Jesup from Malvern, PA United States  
We've been using this for a week now; it definitely helps us notice when my father-in-law comes out at oh-dark-thirty looking for breakfast (or whatever).  Sometimes we either don't wake up or it doesn't go off; haven't figured out which yet.
The on/off switch is very easily moved, which is the only obvious problem; at least a couple times I accidentally turned it off.

5 of 5 No More Wandering! September 9, 2019
Reviewer: Kitty McDonough from Brooklyn, NY United States  
My husband has started to wander and needless to say this threw me into a panic as a few times, he'd left the house when I was sleeping.  This product is so easy to install and use, and it makes a clear noise that will wake me right away.  Thank you for creating a product to deal with this very stressful situation.

4 of 5 Motion alarm September 9, 2019
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Delaware  
I had a difficult time placing the motion sensor due to the area in which it was needed. But once I had it placed in an acceptable spot, it has worked as expected.

Reviewer: Jane  
The products are small so my spouse doesn't notice them in their locations. It gives me a peace  of mind knowing when he's wandering he can't leave the house without me knowing.
