Glassbreak Sensor Installation Guide


Glassbreak Sensors are programmed to listen for the specific frequency of windows breaking. They're even sensitive enough to know the difference between a plate breaking, and a window breaking.

Inside SimpliSafe’s Glassbreak Sensor is a small microphone that is calibrated to react to the sound of the glass being struck and then breaking. Pane glass has a certain sound frequency when smashed, which the sensor hears and then trips the alarm. The sensor is listening for the initial “thump” of the glass being struck, which in effect “wakes” it up, and the sound of the glass breaking micro-seconds later trips the alarm.
