I’m in the process of planning my first home security system with the IQ Panel 2+. I have at least 1 Pella casement window from the 1990s in the kitchen that has the screen on the inside, and the double pane window on the outside. Because of this arrangement, not even the regular indoor-rated contact sensors will fit properly based on my measurements.
In the basement, I also have a similar issue. There are 4 small casement windows (awning style, open outwards and up with a crank).
The only solution I see is to install the PG9312 outdoor rated sensor on the exterior of the house/window frames. Has anyone used this sensor for a window for this purpose, as opposed to a gate? Any other ideas?
For the basement windows, I can canvas with motion sensor, but we sometimes have guest staying over and then that wouldn’t be ideal.
