    It would be nice to have the system armed and also have a window
    partially opened..

    Thanks for suggestions on how to accomplish this....

  2. Mount your switch on the side of the window casing. Then use two different
    magnets on the window itself. One positioned to oppose the switch when the
    window is down and the second to oppose the switch in the partially open
    position. Be sure and have the partially open position small enough that
    someone can't come through without moving the window. Also, mount the
    switch assembly high enough that someone can't reach through the window to
    tamper with it.

    I had a few customers in which I install a row of magnets along side the
    switch so he can open his window without disarming the system. This was
    before vent switches came out.
