Glassbreak sensitivity switch

I see on the back of the glassbreak sensor there is a sensitivity adjustment switch, but there is nothing

in the instructions about this. Looks like the default setting is medium, and there is "Low" and "High".

Are there any recommendations for this? I want it to work, but I don't want to get false triggers either.

Hi @brnmcc01 ,

The Glassbreak Sensor is designed to pick up a specific set of sounds: a low-pitched thud immediately followed by a high-pitched crash. So it's not even looking for just the sound of breaking glass, but specific the sound of a window being smashed. Because of that, accidental triggers are extremely unlikely!

The Sensitivity Switch is useful for adjusting the threshold based on the size of your room (i.e. you'd likely want higher sensitivity when you're in a larger room, and lower in a smaller room).
