|laser beam is "broken"...the interfacing circuit would
|activate the transmitter of an ordinary wireless chime
|set...they would keep the receiver in the master
|bedroom with them at night. Then they will be able to
|keep the door open to hear (don't know her name yet)
|if she's crying, and also be able to keep the cat in
|the family. ;-)
|P.S: Do you know if their fears about the cat are justified?
| Since i don't know anything about babies...only electronics,

My experience with cats and babies...
Our cats always protected the babies from outsiders, hissing at anyone
the cat didn't know.
Cats are just like kids... if they don't feel the baby is taking
affection away from them they will be happy and treat the baby as if
it were their own kitten.
When we have young grandchildren visiting (our youngest is 16 months),
we use one of those RF monitors... maybe that would give you the
peace-of-mind you need.
