SS III How to test Glass Break

Clapping works but you have to clap loudly.  You could do like captain did and break an actual window lol.  I believe his was an old one that he found and tested with.

When in "test" mode, the sensor is just in "noise" mode, so a clap works fine.  In "real" mode, there are additional filters applied, so breaking glass is the best test.  Metal against ceramic is sometimes enough.  I dropped a bundle of metal tubes once and that set it off.

I downloaded a couple of YouTube videos of glass breaking.  This one worked when the volume was turned up. Search "Breaking Window Glass"
