How Does a Glass Break Detector Work in Window or Sliding Door?
May 27, 2020
Door and window sensors sound an alarm when someone opens a door or window to your home. But if a burglar were to break into your home by smashing a window—instead of forcing it open—the window sensor wouldn’t trigger.
The Science Behind Glass Break Sensors
Glass break detectors are ideal to use in rooms with large windows and sliding doors. The detector is a small device you attach on or near your windows. Like a motion sensor, the range is limited, so you’ll likely want multiple glass break detectors for your home.
Adjusting Device Sensitivity
When considering glass break detectors, many people worry about triggering false alarms if they accidentally break a glass plate or are watching an action movie. Potential false alarms are why you should test and adjust sensitivity levels when you first install your glass break detectors.
