The sound of shattering glass may not be enough to alert you to an intruder, and would probably go unnoticed on a remote outbuilding or if your property is unoccupied. That’s why break glass detectors can be such a valuable part of your intruder alarm system.
What are break glass detectors?
Even if your burglar alarm has door and window contacts on your property's vulnerable entry points, break glass detectors will alert you if an intruder chooses to smash a window or door panel to gain access.
Some detectors work by recognising the sound that breaking glass makes, while others are triggered by vibration, and they come in wired or wireless versions.
Because we’re vendor-neutral and review security products from across the market, our experienced installers are experts can recommend the best break glass detectors for your individual needs.
