When adding home security, install sensors and glass break detectors on windows that can be accessed easily from outside.
Of course, you can bypass third-story windows. But if someone can climb through second-floor windows from a fire escape or tree limb, you may want to secure them as well.
Glass windows should be protected with both a sensor and a glass break detector. The sensor activates an alarm if the window opens and someone tries to enter. The glass break detector will pick up low and high frequency sounds of glass breaking.
Both the detector and sensor will send a signal to the control panel of your security system, which sounds an alarm. A monitored system will signal a professional responder who can dispatch police.
