You can connect two hard-wired magnetic contact switches to the console. These will be zones 31 and 32. You can also use any other Normally Closed sensor, like a water sensor or freeze sensor- as long as it will open contacts when you want the alarm to go off. The hard wired zones are treated as delayed zones (i.e. they have exit and entry delays if you arm the system in the Away mode).
