Do you use glass break sensors in your home security system?

Glass Break Detectors

How often do you hear of a burglar breaking a window to get into a house? More than you'd like. Since widows are targeted just as much as doors, but can be broken much easier, they need extra protection.

Glass break detectors from Protect America can be placed in any room in your house. These sensors do exactly what their name says: they detect when a glass door or window has been broken and alert your home security alarm.

These sensors are great for the entire house, but they are a necessity if you have doors with glass panes. Burglars will often break the glass and reach through to unlock the door. Eliminate this option for them by using glass break detectors.

They work with windows, glass doors and skylights too. The instant the glass breaks the sensor relays that to your wireless alarm system and sounds a siren. This can also help detect a crack in the glass that might not be visible yet but could become a problem later.

Glass break detectors can be added to your burglar alarm system for a low price and comes with a much higher value in home security.

Glass break sensors (at least the ones that can be placed "in any room" operate on sound detection so I am not sure how they are going to detect a crack in glass.
