One of the aspects to having a tiny home, that you may not think of, is security. This is especially true if you will be living in the home on a long term basis and traveling. If this sounds like your situation, and you need more security, one option is to use magnetic security screens for your windows and doors. Here are some of the benefits to using this option, and what you need to know about each one.

Removable and Adjustable

One of the main benefits to using magnetic security windows screens is the ability to adjust them and move them as you need. For example, you may need more security on your front door than your windows, depending on your location. This means you can easily place the window screen on your door while removing the screens from your windows. When you move your location, you may find that you need the windows protected as well. You can then add the security screens to the windows, too.

Attached Alarm System

Most of the magnetic security window screens have built-in, attached alarm systems. These alarms will go off when the screen is tampered with. If the screen is moved or if the screen is cut, the alarm will sound. This alarm can be an audible alarm, an alert to your smartphone, or both. There are many smartphone-connected options that will allow you to view the area of the screen from your phone to see what or who is tampering with the screen. You can also notify the police or authorities directly from the app.

Different Styles

When you go with a magnetic security window screen, you have the ability to choose from different styles and colours to fit your needs. This is ideal when you are considering this option for a tiny home. You can choose the right dimensions for the windows and doors and have them specially cut to fit as well. You can also choose the material as well as the security options that are available on the magnetic screens.

By keeping these benefits in mind, you can make a better choice for the right security window screens for your tiny home. When you are ready to install the window screens, contact your local hardware or home improvement store. They can help with options, pricing, and with any questions you will have about the screen installation process.
