Increasing security for your home: Various window security options

Double hung windows, casement windows, and sliding windows come with many lock options available to them. In fact, some of these options allow you to lock them securely and still allow for a small opening to enjoy a breeze.

Although many of these window locks make allowance for a small opening they still provide security. They do this by preventing the window from being forced open all the way.

These are some of the popular window locks suited for many styles of windows.

Pin locks- These locks work by sliding a pin into the window frame or casing that attaches one window sash to the other. Keyed locks- Keyed locks provide the highest level of security for window locks because they require a key for the window to be opened.

Pin locks- These locks secure a window by using a pin that slides into the window frame or casing or attaches one window sash to another.

The lock attaches in a position where each window frame can lock into place.

Sliding windows can be less secure than other types of windows because they can be easily lifted off the track.

Sliding locks- Sliding windows lock on both sides and secure the window frame in place.

The same approach is recommended for homes with sliding doors.

If you have these types of windows it is recommended that you keep a bar or rod in the track to keep it from being forced open.

You should do the same if you have sliding doors in your home.

Folding latches- Folding latches are a common type of window lock installed in homes today.

Wedge locks- These locks allow the window to be ajar to allow a breeze or sunlight.

Home security systems and window locks:

The comprehensive security coverage of your home includes all ready points of entry.

This includes your windows.

In fact, a comprehensive security plan for your home will integrate your windows into your home's security system.

You can do this by installing sensors that are hooked to the alarm system.

Sensors are often magnets connected to the window and window casing that alert the system when the two are detached.

Security systems with window monitoring provide a variety of different options for tracking the movement of windows.

The notification process can range from an alert when a window is open, to an alert when a window pane is broken.

Attaching any of these alerts to a sound alarm discourages the theft of your home.

In fact, syncing these notifications with your smartphone will ensure that you are the first to know if there is any movement in and around your home.
