comment How should I wire for a security system during construction?
I ended up installing an Elk M1G, and ran Cat 6 to the keypads, which worked fine.

The side that swings open. They are recessed though, so I guess I don't see why there would be any issue, unless I have a pile of poo or something on my shoe, and somehow find a way to magically kick it in the air, which in that case it may just as easily land on the top of the door (if I'm good enough).

Sorry, I should have phrased the question differently. I meant on the side opposite the hinges, but either on the top or bottom on that side.

comment How do I choose a recessed alarm contact switch?
I am going with the stubby/earth magnet contact for the windows. Too many unknowns with what I am drilling into, and warranty implications. If there are no downsides of this contact, then I don't see the benefit of the press fit ones that require drilling into the windows. I am using miniature press fit ones for the doors. Thanks for your help.

@user1563835 I'll look into that. I'm not sure offhand. Thanks.
