You may think about purchasing and installing a child door alarm if you have a swimming pool gate. They install easily and most operate on one 9-volt battery. The door alarm has a delay switch, allowing adults to pass without the alarm sounding.
When a child opens the door, the alarm will go off in seven seconds. Even if the child should close the door after passing through it, the alarm will sound. As an additional measure of protection, if the door is left open, the alarm will sound.
