Window Alarms for Your Home's Protection

Aug 17, 2007
Even when you live in a picture-perfect and safe neighborhood, it would still be worth it to invest in a reliable alarm system.

You will never know what unfortunate incident might happen and you will feel a whole lot better if you know that somebody will be alerted once your home alarm system goes off.

Your home should be intruder-free, and you and your loved ones should be physically safe from harm that is why you need to install an alarm security system in your home.

You can never put a price tag on personal safety, and the knowledge that you will be alerted once an intruder or a thief comes into your home should put your mind to rest.

When setting up a security system in your home, doors and windows are the major key points where an alarm should be placed since this is where burglars are most likely to come in.

Here are some tips on how you can use window alarms to protect your home:

1. Check the entire area of your house and determine which windows can be directly viewed from the street.

Do your neighbors or passersby from the street have a clear view of the inside of your house?

If your family living area can be clearly seen from the outside once your windows are open, thieves and intruders might find it easy to gain access to your home.

Place the window alarms in strategic places. Those windows which cannot be easily observed from the streets may be seen as an entryway.

You can skip the windows which can be easily seen by your next door neighbor since the mere thought that they can be easily viewed from the streets will be enough to scare off thieves.

What you can do instead is install alarms on windows which are hidden from the main rooms of the house, those in the back and the ones which may be hidden by trees and bushes.

2. If you do not have the budget for a state-of-the-art window alarm, use ones which are cheap yet effective.

Wireless home alarms which imitate the sound of a barking dog or other alarm sounds can be used to protect your house from intruders. These alarms will go off when someone approaches the secured perimeter of your house.

Also, there are cheap alarms which will go off when someone tries to break through your windows. Some window alarm models come with a glass break feature and a motion detector which should emit an alerting sound once someone tries to break through the glass.

3. If your window alarm is part of a complicated alarm security system, make sure that all the members of your family know how to input and interpret codes.

If you have installed a system with sensors, motion and fire alarms, security video cameras, the works, then all members of the family should be aware of how to use the security system.

Window alarms are an essential part of any home security system. When used along with door alarms, as well as fire and motion detectors or a video security camera, then you can make sure that your home and your family are safe from unsavory characters who might try to break into your home.
