Beep-e
Beep-e is a door alarm system. This alarm provides a simple-to-use solution to protect you and your family. This alarm is specifically set to go off when a door is opened. There is a magnetic sensor that is connected to a speaker and whenever the magnet is removed from the sensor a sound will play. My inspiration behind this project is families with loved ones with memory loss diseases. My grandfather has Alzheimer's and we struggle with knowing when he leaves the house. Knowing this, I know others also struggle with this problem and could possibly use a device like this to help them as well.
