If you have a 3-sided fence (with the house as the 4th side), door alarms are a good way to secure the perimeter.
In addition to pool door alarms, consider an interior fence surrounding your pool, or a combination of a small fence, bordered by large planters, benches or other items that could effectively block access from the house to the pool. Think of Layers of Protection - door alarms secure the outer layer, pool alarms secure the inner layer. Secondary, internal fences or automatic pool covers provide a greater level of security.
Poolguard door alarms are both "wireless", and operate with a 9-volt battery. The DAPT-WT sounds immediately when the door is opened without first pressing the pass-thru button, whereas the Model DAPT-2 will allow a 7-second pass-thru delay. This delay allows you to enter the door from the outside, and then push the pass-thru button once on the inside. Poolguard door alarm model DAPT-WT has a pass-thru button that you mount on the outside. Push this button before you walk through - as this door alarm has a 0-second delay - sounds immediately - for those areas required to have this type of door alarm.
