Increasing security for your home: Various window security options
Double hung window, casement windows, and sliding windows are compatible with a wide variety of different locks. These locks secure a window and some even allow a window to be slightly open to allow a breeze but still maintain the security of the window by preventing it from being opened further. These locking devices are able to securely lock a closed window or allow a limited opening for a breeze but still prevent a window from being forced open all the way. These are some of the popular window locks suited for many styles of windows.
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 provide the highest level of security for window locks because they require a key for the window to be opened. These locks are some of the most difficult to force open because a key is required before the window can be opened.
Sliding locks- Sliding windows have locks that secure a window on both sides. The lock attaches in a position where each window frame can lock into place. Sliding windows can be less secure than other types of windows because they can be easily lifted off the track. This is why it's recommended that a bar is kept inside the track to prevent the window from being forced open. The same approach is recommended for homes with sliding doors.
Folding latches- Folding latches are the most common type of window lock currently installed in homes. This type of lock allows a window to be latched closed with a fixture that secures one window to another. This type of lock is 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:
Comprehensive security coverage for your home should include your windows. Your home's security system should include window sensors that are hooked to an alarm system. They are usually installed in the form of magnets connected to the window and window casing that alert the system when the two are detached. Using a security system with window monitoring has various options for tracking the movement of windows. The tracking generally includes notification when a window is opened to alerting the system when a window pane is broken. If you attach any of these alerts to a sound alarm they will deter burglars. Syncing security notifications to your smartphone ensures that you are notified right away of any movement in and around your home.
