[WTB] X10-compatible Glass Break Sensors
« on: April 10, 2007, 10:19:54 PM »

Does anybody know where i can get glass break sensors that are compatible with X10 protector plus(DS7000)? Or, can someone suggest any reliable glass break sensors at a affortable cost without any hardwire solution? If its not compatible with X10 protector plus, i need something that sounds when someone breaks the windows and triggers all the glass break sensors or it doesnt have to without the need of a main console.

Why not use a wired glass break sensor and wire it to a door/window security sensor in place of the magnetic contact?
Automatedoutlet has many this is just one! ;)

But the link you showed me, arent they ultra sensitive since your attaching it to the window? Earthquakes, trucks, etc.... Cant they trip the alarm? If i used the glass break sensors instead of the magnet, what security will i get if robbers did try to open the window instead of breaking it? Im a newbie if you guys havent known yet!

Well, then you will have to have two sensors on the door - one for "glass break" and one for "open".  Look for a good deal on the window/door sensors at X10.

There are other Glass Break Sensors  at Automatedoutlet read the specs for each to see exactly how they trigger!
 If you can't find the specs drop Automatedoutlet an email and they'll supply them! ;)

You can wire both the magnet and the glass break sensor into the same door/windor sensor so either will trigger the alarm! ;) :D ;D You do this as if you were to wire for two magnet sensors!

What kind of specs am i looking for? I called them and they said any glass break sensors will work if X10 window/door sensors have 2 inputs, but he said none of the glass break sensors are directly made to work for the X10, so i was stuck since i didnt know what i was asking for. One for the door/window magnets and the other for the glass break sensors! How do you go about installing them? Does the X10 window/door sensor even have two inputs?

First off You want to know what will trigger them vibration,noise,or the actual glass breaking from under them!
Second this is how you will wire it in Adding_A_Switch_To_A_Door/Window_Sensor
Just substitute one of the magnet sensors for the glass break sensor!
Still at a loss then get a security expert to set you up! ;) :D ;D

Still at a loss????? I've just finished reading the directions! The window/door sensor actually have another wire inside it or do i have to get my own or cut the original to size? I just need a glass break sensors that will alarm when the window actually breaks! Does it matter what kind of glass breaking sensors i get?

The link you gave me, would it work just fine since im just only looking for glass breaking sensors that only detect glass breaks? Will it trip from trucks when it vibrates the windows?

That you'd have to ask the seller! Not all  glass break sensors work the same. ;) :D ;D
I don't use any myself so I can't recommend a specific one! ::)

You'll want to e-mail the seller and confirm that the contacts in the sensor are normaly closed  and ask any other information  you feel important(how they trip) Also not all sensors are wired, you need the wires to connect to the door/window module! ;) :D ;D
