How to install your SimpliSafe Glassbreak Sensor

Our Glassbreak Sensors have been specifically engineered to “listen” for the specific frequency of breaking glass. Place the sensor on a shelf, or adhere to the wall less than 20 feet from the windows you want to protect. You should avoid placing it in the kitchen, as the clinking of glasses could trigger a false alarm.

If you have heavy curtains, place your Glassbreak Sensor closer to the window - five to 10 feet away - as thick fabric can dull the sound of breaking glass.
