Metal Doors Alarm


We are a school that has two exterior metal doors, side by side, which have panic bars for exiting and we would like to install an alarm system that would sound when the doors are opened. Currently what has happen is that people exit and foget to close the doors. The doors do not have a hydraulic nor spring mechanism to close. Is there anything that would make a sound (yell at) that person to come back and close the door?

Metal Doors Alarm

So, do you want to stop the doors from being used (as most door alarms are intended) or only alarm if a door has been open for more than a certain amount of time?

We want the door to be used. We need it to sound an alarm so that they hear the sound and remember to close the door.
