Sensors on windows and doors are a crucial part of any home security system. These compact, subtle devices can be placed virtually anywhere, offering protection from would-be intruders without clashing with your décor. You can also use door/window sensors to provide you with customizable notifications about what’s going on inside your home. Check out the top three reasons why Brinks Home Security™ door and window sensors make sense for your security needs.

Specialized encryption

When you hear the word, “encryption,” your mind may jump to intelligence thrillers and secret agents. While it does have its place in spy novels, when it comes to your home security, encryption is an extra layer of protection. Simply put, it means your home security system protects private information by translating it into code, blocking anyone other than authorized users from accessing it. Brinks Home Security Home door/window sensors also offer a unique board-and-antenna design to extend their range. This means no matter where you place your device — from your garage door to the safe in your bedroom — you can rest easy knowing you have coverage.

User-friendly

While encryption keeps others out, user-friendly technology makes sure you’re always looped into your smart home. Brinks Home Security Home door/window sensors are wireless, boast an eight-year battery life, and are easy to install on anything that opens or closes – just peel and stick! When the batteries do eventually give out, changing them is a cinch and doesn’t require the services of a specialist or technician. Plus, their flexibility allows you to place them beyond just doors and windows; these sensors are perfect for creative solves like monitoring who’s peeking into your medicine cabinets, jewelry drawers, liquor cupboards, and other areas that are off-limits to toddlers and teens alike.

Customizable

Like the rest of Brinks Home Security’s Smart Home products, the door/window sensors are adjustable to your personal preference. This means that you can set rules for security purposes, for example, if a window is left open, you can set a rule that alerts you –helping you stay secure, and save money on your energy bills. Or, use door/window sensors to automate your home. You can set an alert that will trigger your lights when a motion sensor has been triggered for a room or cabinet. The former ensures that you stay secure while saving money, the latter enables you to grab that baking sheet in the back of the cabinet without fumbling in the dark. Either way, Brinks Home Security has you covered.
