Need alarm for windows and door..suggestions please!

My daughter is moving into a new apt. Her apartment is on the seond floor (of a newly renovated house), her room is the master bedroom which has a terrace outside, and 3 ceiling to floor windows which opens to the terrace and a door leading to the terrance. The door to terrace looks sturdy, has a dead bolt. She agrees that she needs window and door alarms since anyone can easily get on her terrace from the connecting houses. I'm concerned that the door to her actual apt is nothing more than a room door with a lock, the door leading to the outside looks sturdy. She refuses to put an alarm on the door to the apt, but has agreed that she will put a lock/ or alarm on her bedroom door for when she is alone. Any suggestions for alarms for the windows and doors along with what kind of a lock/alarm she can use on her bedroom door will be appreciated. If I sound overly nervous it's because in my last house I surprised a bugular, it was horrible!
