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.

Hands-on research

Product Research


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?

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 ]
Because I was told it is a good product [ Deb  Aug 03, 2016 ]

1 question already asked

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
