A perimeter alarm in terms of alarm systems usually refers to a system that allows you to move around throughout the house knowing that each and every location of entry is covered by an alarm sensor. Windows and doors are usually covered by reed switches and glass break detectors work to detect entry via breaking windows.
Perimeter alarms are great if:
> you’re concerned someone is trying to break in while you’re inside your house
> you’ve got a large pet that lives inside the house (so pet sensitive PIRs wouldn’t work)
