Perhaps one of the most ideal setups for acoustic glass break sensors involves placing them within range of any glass door or window that a potential burglar would normally be able to fit through. This is because breaking one of these areas is considered to be one of the most common methods of entry for burglars to gain illegal entry to a home. It is also possible to install glass break sensors on second-story glass windows provided they are located near a tree or other relatively easy method of access.

Glass break sensor test – Typically, this type of system feature uses microphones in order to listen for the sound of glass shattering, meaning that they won’t be able to pick up other sound frequencies that would be otherwise muffled by walls or other types of large-sized items that are located between the sensor and the glass. This means that you will need to take the time to install separate glass break sensors in each room that you would essentially like to protect with these system features.

Here are the most common steps to make note of when it comes to installing glass break sensors in order to ensure that they are able to work as effectively as possible.

*First and foremost, take the time to determine which specific windows will actually be the most easily accessible from the exterior of your home, as well as which windows are large enough in order to enable a potential burglar to enter. Furthermore, you will also need to search for windows that would enable a burglar to reach in and unlock an interior door in the event that they were able to be broken. These would be the windows that you would want to protect the most. Additionally, all large glass doors would also need to be protected by glass break sensors as well.

*You will then need to determine exactly how you wish to distribute your glass break sensors. Keep in mind that you will want to use as few sensors as possible in order to cover as many windows as doors as you can. Areas that have multiple windows should be considered as a more natural starting point. This means that if you are working with an average-sized room that contains several windows and a sliding glass door, you would be able to protect the room by using a single sensor.

*Glass break sensor test – Ensure that all sensors are placed with approximately four feet of range from the glass. Furthermore, you will also need to select a location that is four to 20 feet from the windows or doors that you wish to protect, and you will also need to ensure that the sensor will be able to have a clear line of sight to the glass as well. This location should also be within 100 feet of your sensor’s hub in order to make sure that there is a proper amount of wireless communication with the security system itself. This distance will be able to go through walls, as the sensor only will need a line of sight through the glass.

*In the event that you are adhering your glass break sensor to either a ceiling or flat wall, you will need to ensure that the mounting surface itself is both dry and clean. From there, take the time to remove the wax backing from the adhesive pads and press and hold the sensor as firmly as possible against the surface for at least 30 seconds.
