Ultra-smart glass break detector

May 2016 Access Control & Identity Management, Products & Solutions

Tyco Security Products has introduced the Visonic GB-502 PG2 glass break detector with proprietary microphone technology that provides reliability when identifying broken windows or glass doors.

Designed for the home or business, the ultra-smart glass break detector is designed to identify only true breaking glass by analysing patterns of sounds using a three-stage, multi-level classification process, essentially eliminating the issue of false alarms. Early and accurate detection ensures users that property is not only more secure, but also delivers notice to act quickly so they can protect against damage, added costs and potential insurance liabilities from temperature extremes, water infiltration or other harmful environmental factors.

The Visonic glass break detector can also help to reduce costly energy consumption with its ability to monitor environmental conditions. A single detector, which can be wall or ceiling mounted, is able to protect rooms up to 120 square metres, eliminating the need for individual glass break detectors on each door or window. And its low-power operation extends the battery life for up to five years, reducing maintenance costs.

“The accuracy of this new glass break detector gives home and business owners a new level of confidence that problems will be detected quickly and accurately,” said Tim Myers, product line director, intrusion, Tyco Security Products. “This enables them to take the necessary steps to safeguard their office or residence when there is an issue with a broken window or door, but they won’t have to deal with the hassle of false alarms.”

The Visonic glass break detector is part of Tyco Security Products’ PowerMaster family and connects to the PowerMaster intrusion alarm system panels and management system, all driven by the award-winning PowerG technology.
