Wireless Glass Break Sensor

The IQ Glass Break is specially designed to protect you if an intruder tries to break-in through a window. Using encryption technology, the device stays in communication with the alarm control, providing instant status alerts. The unit is triggered by the pitch and frequency of breaking glass, effective within 20′ and is activated automatically when you arm your system in either “Stay” or “Away” mode. Typically installed on the opposite wall or on the ceiling to allow for better “listening” ability in large living areas.


  • Encrypted S-Line sensor technology protects signals sent to the Control Panel
  • Actively listening for breaking glass frequencies when you are in “stay” or “away” modes
  • Typically installed on the wall opposite the windows needing protection, or on the ceiling in a room with windows on multiple sides
  • Protects widows within line of sight within 20’

Alarm System Design Suggestions

There are three basic designs when it comes to burglar alarms (Trap Protection, Perimeter Protection and a combination of these two).

Design Header

Trap Protection

This is the most cost effective design. It utilizes a combination of door sensors and strategically placed motion sensors. The design is effective if you plan on using the system when you are away from home. Door sensors are installed on the entry and exit doors. The door sensors are programmed for a delay time, allowing you to arm and disarm the system during the entry/exit period. Motion sensors are placed to cover the traffic areas. The goal is to place motion sensors in certain locations so that an intruder cannot move from one area to the other without being detected (hallways and open kitchen/living rooms are good examples). This design does leave "dead spots" where an intruder could enter, but they cannot move from that area to another without being detected and tripping the alarm. This design is effective and saves money because less devices are used for detection. When an entry door is opened, it puts all motion sensors into a delay period, allowing you to disarm the system without triggering an alarm. If the motion sensor detects movement without an entry door being opened first, an alarm is instantly triggered.

Trap Alarm Protection

Perimeter Protection

This design is used mainly to secure your home while you are there. A combination of window/door sensors and glass break sensors are used to protect all possible perimeter entry points. Since no motion detectors are used, the system can be armed while home, allowing for free movement inside without tripping any devices.

Perimeter Alarm Design

Combination Protection

This design combines the Trap Design and Perimeter Design. The system utilizes a combination of window/door, glass break and motion sensors. This allows the user to arm all devices when leaving and only arm the perimeter devices when home. The action is very easy. You simply choose the "armed away mode" when leaving or the "armed stay mode" when settling in for the evening.
