A glass break detector is a sensor used in electronic burglar alarms that detects if a pane of glass is shattered or broken. These sensors are commonly used near glass doors or glass store-front windows to detect if an intruder broke the glass and entered.
Glass break detectors usually use a microphone, which monitors any noise or vibrations coming from the glass. If the vibrations exceed a certain threshold (that is sometimes user selectable) they are analyzed by detector circuitry. Simpler detectors simply use narrow band microphones tuned to frequencies typical of glass shattering, and react to sound above certain threshold, whereas more complex designs compare the sound analysis to one or more glass-break profiles.
Typical coverage is up to 25 feet radius from the sensor. Listening only in the frequency of breaking glass, and with patented glass break pattern recognition, this sensor listens for actual glass breaking patterns providing superior protection from false alarms.
