Sprinter Van RV - Motion and glass break sensor sensitivity

The motion sensors have a switch in them to adjust sensitivity. So you can try the default and then adjust if needed.

Hi robstar1,

The Glassbreak Sensor is tested for your typical house environment. And since it's really a microphone that looks out for a specific sound, acoustics in the space play a big role in how they perform.

As for the Motion Sensors, they're meant for internal spaces. They work through passive infrared - that is, they detect a contrast in temperature moving around. That also means that they can't really work through glass, since it's an insulator. So yours shouldn't trigger from people moving around outside - though you might have trouble with sunlight flickering through trees, etc.
