Increasing window security in your home: Window security options
Double hung window, casement windows, and sliding windows have a variety of devices that can be used to lock them securely and allow a limited opening for a breeze. However, the limited opening presents enough security to prevent them from being opened all the way. These window locks are popular because they provide security even when a window is partially opened. However, there are others.
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.
Keyed locks- Keyed locks offer the highest level of security for window locks. They require a key to open them and are difficult to force open.
Sliding locks- Sliding windows lock on both sides with each window frame locking into place. They can be less secure because some can be lifted off the track. To increase safety, you should keep a bar or rod in the track to keep it from being forced open. You should do the same with sliding doors.
Folding latches- Folding latches are very common types of locks. Windows with these types of locks can be latched closed by a fixture that secures one window to another. These locks are standard on several kinds of windows.
Wedge locks- These locks only open partially for a breeze or sunlight, but have a security mechanism to keep them from being forced open.
Key track stop- These locks prevent any movement on a window track. They are typically used with windows that have a track like sliding windows or standard windows.
Home security systems and window locks:
The security of your home should include all possible 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 have many options that track the movement of your windows and notify you. The notification process can range from an alert when a window is open, to an alert when a window pane is broken. If you attach any of these alerts to an alarm that sounds it will deter theft for 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.
