I have pets so I am going to put " magnet reed" type cylinders in the top of the door and the other in the jam. Naturally when the door is open it will make the connection and sound a siren I have in the attic vent. I am going to connect it to the porch light switch so when I am home it disables it. When I leave I just turn it on. The problem is, if they open the door and the siren goes off they just shut the door and it stops. I need something when it activates it stays on for like a few minutes or what ever I set it for. A motion light switch which has adjustable timine before it turnsit off but need a sensetivity adj for pets and shadows from the sun.
