The Benefits of Door and Window Sensors


If you’re thinking about getting a home security system, then congratulations, you’re one step closer to ensuring your family’s safety. We’ve already talked about the different parts of a home security system in a previous post, so hopefully you already know how security sensors work. Here, we’ll tell you about the benefits of having door and window sensors as part of your home’s security.

>>Home Alarms: How They Work and Why We Need Them

Doors and windows make up the biggest percentage when it comes to modes of entry for would-be thieves. This goes without saying that you’d want to cover these entry points first. But door and window sensors can do more than just secure your house.

Let’s take a look at four of the advantages of having window and door sensors.

Keep Criminals Out

This is, of course, the most important aspect of door and window sensors and most likely the reason you bought them. Installing these can turn each door and window of your home into a potential alarm. In some types of security systems, these sensors are even programmed to inform the proper authorities if they’ve been breached. Basically, once these sensors have been set and armed, no one comes into your house without you knowing it.

Keep Loved Ones In

An overlooked aspect of door and window sensors, is that aside from keeping unwanted people out, it can do a pretty good job of keeping people you care about in. Especially if those people are, for example, children. Children loves exploring on their own, what do you expect they’re kids.

But if, let’s say you happen to have a swimming pool, then exploration could turn into danger really fast. Without proper supervision, who knows what could happen. That’s where door and window sensors just might be able to save the day and alert you once their sensors are breached from within.

Extra Layer of Security

Most security systems come with a sticker that says your home is protected by so-and-so security company. This alone might be enough to deter thieves who end up thinking trying to get into your home is not worth the time and effort, not to mention the risk. In the event an entry point is indeed breached, the loud alarm will no doubt deter future thieves to be wary of your house.

Peace Of Mind

Another overlooked aspect of door and window sensors, as well as home security kits in general. This is a by-product of the security provided, whose effect is intangible but nonetheless important. So many things occupy your mind everyday, the security of your home should no longer have to be one of them.
