Reliable Glass Break Detectors

Glass break sensors/detectors provide an extra layer of protection to your home or business. 

You might be asking yourself, “What is a glass break detector and what does it sense?” The easy answer is that a glass break sensor, or glass break detector, is a device that is placed close to windows or glass doors to ensure that if an intruder tries to break in through a glass barrier,  you’ll know. You’re able to easily control your glass break detectors through our all-in-one mobile app (which will control your whole smart home too). Receive fast alert notifications in case you’re away from your home or business when the glass break detectors are triggered.

How Do Glass Break Sensors Work?

Unlike a traditional entry sensor that is triggered by the two parts of the alarm detector moving apart, the glass break detection device is triggered by the pitch and frequency of breaking glass. Here at Safelink Security Solutions, we use the IQ Glass which is effective within 20′ and is activated automatically when you arm your IQ Panel in either “Stay” or “Away” mode.  These glass break sensors are typically installed on the opposite wall or on the ceiling to allow for better “listening” ability in large living areas.

Are Glass Break Detectors Effective?

The IQ Glass is one of the most reliable glass-break detection devices in the market. The IQ Glass, glass break detector is specially designed to protect you if an intruder tries to break in through a window. Using our proprietary S-Line encryption technology, signals sent to the IQ Panel are encrypted while still providing backward compatibility for legacy 319.5 systems. Glass break sensors are a must have on your home security system so you can be instantly alerted if someone has broken a window at your home or office. You can rest assured the glass break detector device will trigger the alarm response if it detects any vibration or indication of glass breakage. Pair a glass break sensor with a panic button for double alerting.


What are the Benefits of Glass Break Sensors?

  • They don’t require a door or window to open to trigger the alarm
  • They protect valuables like trophy or display cases
  • They cover sliding glass doors, which aren’t usually compatible with traditional entry sensors
  • They can cover multiple windows and/or doors


How Can I Test A Glass Break Sensor?

Testing that your glass break detector is in good condition is easy-and no actual broken glass is required! To test your sensor, look up a video on YouTube of glass breaking. Once you have your video, place your glass break sensor a few inches beside it. Then, test away!
