could a short program/script to play a looping wav file of a dog
whistle at max volume be used to create a silent(ish) alert? then walk
a dog around that general area until it gets unreasonably aggravated
near one unit or another...

or if a sound could be triggered remotely at will, maybe monitor the
network for a period of inactivity and then when you find it, deploy a
person to the suspected general area and repeatedly trigger a distinct
sound and see if they hear it. again liking a dog whistle for this, if
an agreeable dog is available.
