Our home is equipped with the Ring Alarm System. We have sensors on both entrance/exit doors as well as the garage door. Every time any of these doors is opened a loud "chime" is played to alert all staff. After 8 PM we set our alarm to "home and armed" which means an emergency alarm will go off and alert staff if anyone opens an exit/entrance door. We also store all kitchen knives/scissor in a locked cabinet in the kitchen to ensure safety of all residents/staff.
