The conventional break-in scenario may involve a forced entry through a locked door of the home. But astonishingly, one-third of burglaries are classified as simple “unlawful entry” crimes. That means there was no forced entry to the house. Maybe the homeowner let the criminal in willingly – or, maybe they intruded by entering through an unlocked door or window.
Unfortunately, a vulnerable window is almost as inviting to a perpetrator as being let in through the front door. But what if, like many homeowners, you consider your windows a security afterthought? Here’s how a smart home security system can help.
Reminders to Secure the Window
With smart home security, you can program your system to send a reminder to your smartphone at the time of day when locking or closing a window is necessary; maybe that’s when it’s before leaving for work, time to tuck the kids in, or time to go to bed. With a system that communicates with your window sensors and sends a status message to your smartphone, you’ll never leave home or settle in for the night without securing your window.
Sensitivity to Opening
Your window sensors are highly sensitive to motion on the window. If an intruder attempts to open it from the outside, you’ll get an immediate smartphone alert – and yes, your alarm will sound. That’s because the sensors communicate with the alarm panel seamlessly. All of this takes just seconds, from the time an intruder opens the window to the time the signal reaches the monitoring center.

Unlimited Window Sensors
You can get as many window sensors as you need, and they can be placed in multiple locations throughout the home. If there is ever an unlawful entry at one of your windows, the alarm will sound and you’ll get a call from the monitoring center within seconds. When these connected locks and devices are programmed to work together, they can be a homeowner’s best sentry against home invasion.
