I was visiting at a senior living community lately, and saw a great low-tech security device.
Security personnel walk the halls overnight, flipping these little markers up against the doors of each apartment…
… and when the resident opens the door, the marker falls. Security staff walk through the halls during the morning and can check on anyone whose marker isn’t released.
