How old is your child?
Could you use a baby monitor with video so that if he leaves the room there should be enough sound coming through that to wake you up and take him back to his bed?

I'm following with interest. I have completely lost all leverage with DS now he can climb out of his cot whenever likes. My furniture is unsecured and it's so nerve wracking!
(Yes I know 3.5 is too old for a cot - I've kept him in it while waiting 18 months for FOB to secure my furniture.)

OP I'm following too for ideas but u think we are a bit passed that with DD who I found in the TV room last night watching DHs iPad at 2:30am!!!
I think the monitor idea so far is probably the best. Do you think you would hear that?

I am lucky (?) enough that my DS sots in bed and cries for me. He regularly says he cannot come to my room as 'his legs are broken'.
The only other thing I can think of is toddler proof everything as much as you can. Maybe the playpen idea can work somehow.

Another thought, but this doesn't work for all kids. Is how about a groclock? This worked pretty well with my DD, she knows she can't get out of bed while the "moon is out". This transferred over well into her not being allowed out of her bed until the suns up in the morning (so we don't use the clock anymore as it was really bright).
But, we did this hand in hand with a sleep specialist so hard to know what was the bit that kept her in her bed

A monitor seems a bit redundant when he's sleeping about a metre away from me, but maybe a motion sensor alarm would do the trick, to make a bit of noise. Ooh like those cheesy singing fish that were really popular a few years ago! :P
Hopefully this will work when he's a little older!
