glass break sensor creativity
« on: September 25, 2005, 03:10:15 PM »

Is it possible to wire a glass break sensor
in series to the standard magnetic contact
of the powerhouse door window sensor and
have both functions work independently in
the event of a break in?

I know that two magnetic sensors can be
wired in series to a door/window sensor.
Both have to be closed when satisfied. If
the glass break sensor is a closed circuit
and not a high resistance. Should work.

Yep I do believe so as long as it's
a "normally closed" design.
