Is there any software that my father can install on his compter that will alert me to when he needs help?

Q: My elderly father lives across the street and cant use a phone or much like a walkie talkie. But he loves his solitair on the pc I have for him. Is there a way that his pc can send an alert to my pc so he could summon me to come over? We both have dsl on 24/7 yhere are no wireless annunciators I could find that do 250 ft. doorbell like. hit a key or code and it would send an alert sound and visual screen flashes or sort. a little download for this could maybe make some serious dollars.

    It seems that there are a few products out there that will do what you need. However usually involving a high cost. I did find this product on amazon that is not expensive.

    I visited the manufacturers site for more info and could not find what the distance on this device is. You may need to contact the manufacturer for more information.
