28 Sounds to Test Your Glass Break Sensor1

Many security systems have glass break sensors, and it’s relatively easy to test their effectiveness. A homeowner can test their glass break sensors in order to make sure they work the way they are supposed to. There are simple ways of simulating a glass break to ensure your sensors are working perfectly to protect your home.

Why should a glass break sensor be tested?

It’s important to periodically test all sensors in your home to check for low batteries and to ensure they have maintained the connections needed for effective protection. In order to test your glass break sensor, you need a high-pitched sound to simulate the noise. If the correct sound is not made, the sensor may not register it, which could lead to concern that it is not working when it actually is working perfectly.

Thankfully, there is no need to break any glass. You can find apps, websites, and videos to simulate the sound that will get the sensor to register a glass break. Additionally, it’s possible to find videos that will trigger sounds designed to not alert the sensor, so it does not alert when it doesn’t need to be triggered.
