window alarm system wiring

I recently replaced all my old wood sliding windows by new pvc awning windows. My old windows were wired in sequence by magnetic contacts. How do I wire the new pvc awning windows since the manufacturer of these windows put the mosquitos screens inside the house . Is there a solution for this or do I require some kind of motion detector? Do I need a wireless system with transmitters at each windows? Any help would be appreciated. THANKS

If you can get to the old wiring, you can just put in new contacts. If not, then you'll have to either rewire the windows or use wireless sensors. In that case, a motion detector will probably be much more efficient cost-wise.

Hope that helps.
