More details on the Code Alarm CAGBS

Russ B.
The Code Alarm CAGBS replaces these items:

Product Research

Features

Overview: The Code Alarm Glass Breakage Sensor (CAGBS) should be installed in the passenger compartment of a vehicle to "listen" for the high-pitched sound of glass breaking in order to trigger the connected alarm. The package includes the CAGBS module, a microphone, a dual-adhesive pad for mounting the microphone, and a cable to connect the sensor to the alarm.

Sensitivity Adjustment: The module has a rotary adjustment screw that allows you to set the sensitivity of the glass breakage sensor. The sensor should be set high enough to trigger the alarm when multiple high pitched sounds are heard, but low enough to prevent false alarms due to noise vibrations from passing trucks and heavy equipment.

Customer Q&A

Q
Crutchfield asked: Why did you buy this?
A
Got this because it will make my alarm give a warning beep if someone bumps my glass and if they continue it will go into panic mode [ Cristian  Sep 16, 2016 ]
A
Because I was told it is a good product [ Deb  Aug 03, 2016 ]

Q
Is this compatible with the CA1055 system?
[ J  May 22, 2020 ]

This appears to be a glass breakage microphone. It is compatible but it needs to be spliced onto the wire harness for the shock sensor that is supplied with the alarm. The alarm base unit only has one input plug receptacle for sensors like this (shock, sound, tilt, etc.) so they need to all input via that plug. They can be spliced together into one harness and then plugged in. Some have four wires and others have three but if matched up color to color it should work. It would be helpful if this information was available before you buy them since the Crutchfield site and personnel recommend them as add-ons without mentioning that some tedious wiring is needed - it is confusing when you go to plug them in and come up of short of inputs and scratch your head for a while and then wait for tech support to answer.

I cannot find any indication that this glass break sensor can be used with the CA1055 alarm system. I recommend contacting us on 1-800-324-9695 to discuss options for getting the security system with a glass break sensor.

It does not seem to be. My Crutchfield salesperson recommended that I add it. There are several add-on sensors suggested on the website: shock, glass break mic, tilt but the alarm diagram shows only one 4 pin input for external sensors. There is no three pin connector that I can find to plug it into.
[ THOMAS  Jun 09, 2020 ]
Q
What voltage range can the alarm connector accommodate? What is the alarm output voltage range? Please can you explain the pinouts for the alarm. Which is the power and ground? What is the green pinout for? What voltage range can the alarm connector accommodate? What is the alarm output voltage range? Please can you explain the pinouts for the alarm.

I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: Unfortunately we do not have those specific specs on this piece because it is only a sensor, which has to be used with a larger alarm system. All of the alarm systems that we have listed on the website that have a sensor input will accept this sensor. The three pin connector that you are referring to is made up of the power, ground and signal wire that would plug into the alarm system. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.
