  2. What is the circuit structure going to look like?
  3. Which is simpler, GPRS, Bluetooth or Wifi to get the alert?

If I could comment on this, I would say that this question really sounds like you haven't actually done any research to look into a solution.

But, in simple terms:

  1. Arduino Uno, Android phone, GSM shield, contact sensor or limit switch
  2. The sensor or switch needs to be connected to an I/O pin on the Arduino, and will probably need to be connected to 5V.
  3. GSM(GPRS) is going to provide the most mobility
  4. Arduino
