Our take on the Code Alarm CAGBS by Crutchfield's Ken Nail
Add another layer of protection to your Code Alarm security system. Handy add-on Code Alarm accessories let you incorporate more security and convenience features into your vehicle.
This CAGBS glass break sensor detects the sound of breaking glass, setting off your alarm before a thief has a chance to get to work. The included remote microphone looks for the unique high frequencies created by breaking glass, minimizing the possibility of false alarms. Warranty: 1 year.
If you know how to use a multimeter and have experience working with your vehicle's electrical system, you should be able to install this car security equipment. If you're unfamiliar with installing car security equipment, please call 1-888-955-6000 to discuss your purchase with one of our Advisors.
What's in the Box:
- Glass breakage sensor module
- Glass breakage microphone with attached 31" cable (terminated into a 3-pin Molex plug)
- Dual-sided adhesive pad (7/8" x 1/2")
- Installation Guide
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.

Why did you buy this?

Which is the power and ground? What is the green pinout for? [ Ngozi Aug 07, 2015 ]
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. [ Krissy Aug 11, 2015 ] Staff
