Window sensors are vital components of any security system. These sensors are attached to a door or window, which if breached sends a signal to the main control panel, triggering an alarm. Various types of window sensors are available in the market, but they all perform basically the same function. Most window systems come with a set number of sensors, and one can add more at an additional cost. Ideally, these sensors get placed on every window on the premises.
The window sensors come in two pieces: one fits onto the window itself, while its counterpart attaches to the frame. Adhesive keeps the sensors in place, though sensors are screwed directly into the frame. The two pieces of the sensor are positioned right next to each other, to cause their interaction in case of breaching, which cuts down the electromagnet contact between them. When the two pieces are separated, such as when the door or window is opened, they send a signal to the alarm panel. These window sensors are either wired directly into the alarm system, or they have a battery to power them so they can function wirelessly.
Increase in both commercial and non-commercial use of window sensors and growth in demand for security purpose across various industry verticals drive the market growth. Reduction in cost of technology, improvements in designs, additional features, and their multipurpose and vast application area are expected to supplement the market in future. However, certain security hacking instances and zero guarantee for security hinder the market growth. Moreover, these security systems are dependent on battery and electricity, which may impede their efficient working in case of no power source. Improvement in technology and greater accuracy of these window sensors present growth opportunities for the market in future.
