I wanted to get a sense of how people fee regarding alarming windows - do you feel it is necessary?
We have one window upstairs that would be accessible from the roof - it would take a ladder, but I could see putting a sensor on that one. If the common thought is that no burglar would climb onto the roof to access a second story window, I would prefer to not put a sensor on it in the event the person in that room wanted to open the window without realizing the alarm was armed. The remaining 2nd floor windows would require a 2 story ladder up to the window (no roof access) - not very likely, so I don’t think that sensors on those windows would be necessary.
For downstairs, there are 5 doors with glass inset, as well as several large sliding windows - would you suggest putting sensors on all the glass downstairs, or only the doors? I guess I am not sure how likely someone is to break in via a window when there are doors that can be smashed and opened from the inside? Any thought on that?
Lastly, for the glass, would you recommend a glass break or a combined shock window sensor contact?
Thank you for the input!
