I would be interested in your opinion: The question is whether reed contacts at the top or bottom of the window. Current status of our considerations: install at the top. Why?
— Alarm system recognizes the window as open when tilted and is therefore safer for me.
— If no one is at home, all windows should be closed anyway (so not tilted) and this window position I would like to "recognize".
— Due to living room ventilation most windows stay closed also at night
— Should someone (e.g. our son) want to sleep with open windows despite WRL, I assume that this can be manually "excluded" from an alarm system and that it can still be armed during the night.
— I also assume that you can permanently (e.g. bedroom, children's room) until revoked "exclude" certain windows in the monitoring. So it should be indicated to me that the window is open, but nevertheless an arming is possible.
Addition: 2 contacts per window or a positioning of the magnet at the closing mechanism I do not want actually.
How did you solve this?
