It’s no secret that doors and windows are the most accessible and easy points of entry for burglary. In our experience, securing your points of entry is one of the most critical measures you can take to protect your home and family from burglars and thieves. That’s why it’s extremely important to make sure your doors and windows are safely secured and firmly in place.

All home security systems work on the same basic principle of securing entry points, like doors and windows, as well as interior space containing valuables like art, computers, guns, and coin collections. Regardless of the size of your home, or the number of doors and windows or interior rooms a homeowner decides to protect, the only real difference is in the number of security components deployed throughout the home and monitored by the control panel.

In the event of an actual emergency, the monitoring company will notify the appropriate emergency response personnel in your area. This includes police, firefighters, and paramedics. The monitoring company will also try to maintain communication with you until emergency response teams arrive at your home.

Although not technically a lock, a home security system with window entry sensors can be another layer of protection for your windows. They work by sounding an alarm and alerting the owner when the system senses that a window has been opened. This is most commonly accomplished with magnetic contact sensors. The sensors remain close together, nearly touching, while the window is closed. And when the window is opened, the magnetic sensors break contact and the alarm is tripped.
