Home Security Implementation
« on: August 24, 2018, 01:42:44 PM »
Hi folks,

Last weekend we had an incident where some large rocks were thrown through my young children's windows.  While we live in a very nice neighborhood, these kinds of things can happen anywhere.  We currently don't have any security implementations in place, so we would like to address this.  New windows are going in, but I want something that won't shatter all over them if something like this happens again.  As far as security, we want to install an alarm system as well as cameras that will cover our property.  Our home is 4,000 sq/ft, most of which is on one level, but have a basement that has 2 windows.  I know our requirements are kind of vague, but any suggestions would be helpful as we are new to this. 

Thank you.

As for your windows, you can purchase laminate sheeting that prevents the glass from completely shattering.  Different grades of it with the potential of stopping bullets even.  There are contractors who install it as well professionally.

And yes, for security and video protection, it is a bit vague.  4000 square feet is very large and would probably require a higher end system such as used in industrial.  You'll be better off hardwired.

We installed Hurricane Impact Windows and Hurricane Impact sliding glass doors by PGT.
