Keep in mind that there may be occasions when opening the windows would be a nice option. One point to take into consideration is the manner in which you require the window to open; there are many choices to weigh in on. Of the various sorts of windows, the most common will be vertical and horizontal sliders or casement windows.

You can, of course, have an alarm system to secure your windows, but the first line of defense should be good locks.
