Door and window contacts are simple devices comprising a sensor and a magnet. If contact between the two is broken, a signal is sent to your alarm control panel. They can be easily integrated into any security system to safeguard any type of building and can be used to alert you instantly to attempts to break in, or break out, through doors or windows.
What type of door and window contacts do I need?
Door and window contacts can be recessed or surface-mounted, and come in wired or wireless varieties. Recessed door and window contacts are more expensive than surface-mounted contacts, and it is more expensive to have your door and window contacts hard-wired than it is to install wireless ones.
