I'm in Florida. Can anyone recommend some cheap sliding glass door alarms that would satisfy the code requirement to pass inspection? No small children so would be temporary. I would need 3 or 4 of them. Thanks

I got this. Cheap and passed inspection. Holy heck it is loud. If there had been a volume change I might have left it up.

Requirements vary by jurisdiction. Some allow a pass-through delay before activation and others require an immediate audible alarm. The latter would require an exterior pass-though button so you can enter without activating the alarm. Make sure you select the proper type.

Ok thanks for the heads up. I'll do some research.

@kevin76 did you get your alarms yet? If not, these will pass in Hillsborough county ($33 each at Lowes). The ones Josh mentioned above may or may not pass depending on the inspector. I used those on the windows and passed but others have failed with them.

It's for the child safety...you can also put up a fence or possibly put a floating alarm in the pool. I should have done the fence but I didn't want holes in my travertine and I wasn't positive that the floating alarm would pass so I went with what I knew would work.

Interesting, where I am nothing of the like is required, the insurance company I had required that I put a fence around the pool so I got a different insurance company. A fence behind a house is just a beacon screaming that there is a pool there, I did NOT want that!
