    Use the Sentrol if you have to. Care to tell us a little more about the
    installation you're working on??

    It's a slider type windows in this home (condo), Each pane is about 35x20.
    closed loop zone, There are only 9 windows in this unit. Steven

    I'd suggest having a custom window security screen fabricated that would
    span the entire width of the window. Properly installed (on the outside of
    the window), your customer would enjoy being able to open the window without
    worrying about knocking off a "bug" or "stretching" the wire. In addtional,
    he could open it as wide as he wants on a hot day and still enjoy full
    protection.

    There are a number of companies in the US (and Canada) that are involved in
    fabricating and upgrading window security screens. You can check out one of
    them here:

    Google "security screens" or "window security screens".

    Another option is to go with alarmed window barricades.

    These units remove easily in the event of an emergency, but will also
    "fault" the zone (if your system's disarmed), or sound the siren if it's
    armed.

    besides shock sensors are not bird friendly

    I've used those IEI lithium battery powered ones a few times when situation
    called for it and the prewire co. only ran 2 conductor. They work well..only
    problem is when battery goes.

    guys whats the best, lets put it this way, most secure, way to secure a
    screen, without having the screen remeshed? This is for my own appt, I
    have new screens but cant have them redone. I was thinking a contact on
    each side, 4 of them?

    Very small windows ...screens are 19x34 and they are over wood, these
    are from 55 years ago .. they open in, im adding in modern screens, but
    the landlord already ordered normal screens. The screens go on the
    wooden frame, not the window itself. The old screens were built into
    the windows ..

    Thanks
    Rory

    putting contacts on four sides isn't gonna help if they cut the screen...
    why not make a second inner alarm screen if you don't wanna mess with the
    landlord's

    lacing wire and the pullout connectors? yah i guess you could do that...adi
    may still sell the connectors.

    if it's not in an area that can be seen you may be able to rig up a really
    thin two conductor...maybe skinny zip...solder mini connector plug to one
    end..like stereo headphone plug run it across the window(s) at the reciever
    end put a mini jack and the resistor and plug it in...at the other end
    connect to your home run securely fasten...if the wire is cut you get alarm
    if it pulls out of jack you get alarm if armed or trbl if disarmed.



    | plus i cant afford to do the screen myself, any tips on oldschool syle
    | like 2 wires or something across the outside of the screen? Like a
    | cross ..?

    If the screens are made of wood, you can staple trap wire (which is 24
    ga, solid, insulated) on to the inside of the screen. You staple the
    wire back and forth a few times and up and down a few times. If you're
    afraid that someone would be smart enough to short out the wire to gain
    entry, you can decrease the chances of that by stapleing each leg of
    the protective loop on the screen in odd and even pattern then use an
    end of line resistor loop to detect a short. You add pull out plugs at
    both the top and the bottom to act as a trap if someone tries to take
    out the screen. If the screens are on the outside of the house, you'll
    have to use some kind of weather proof plugs, otherwise moisture will
    oxidize the connections. Or, if your not ever going to remove the
    screens, or very seldom remove them, just run the wires inside the
    house and add plugs or just splice there. If someone tries to pull out
    the screen they'll break the 24 ga wire. Now either way, if someone
    tries to cut through the screen, or remove the screen, they'll have to
    break the trap wire to get into the house.
