Easy to install.

The detector tripped the first time (much to my surprise!), the panel went into alarm and my siren sounded.

Without waiting for me, he went and played with the sensor.

I'm a professional alarm service guy and have installed a number of these. The key is testing, there is a tool that is specifically for these detectors. Dropping keys, breaking bottles in trash cans, etc will NOT work on today's glassbreak detectors (years ago, this would work). The "flex" signal is a thud just before the pitch of shattering glass. If these are located and adjusted properly (as per the instructions), it's rather difficult to intentionally or accidentally trip these.

Out of the box, the sensitivity comes at maximum - from experience, in most residential settings, maximum is too high and tends to cause false alarms. Make sure you install them across from the protected glass (preferred), on the ceiling, or on an adjacent wall, but not on the same wall as it. If you have access to an FG-701 tester to make sure it's adjusted and located properly, that's even better.

Now, on to the real part of my review. I have a Vista-20P system with three of these installed on my first floor in addition to hardwired motions and window contacts. I have each installed per the instructions, and their sensitivity has been tested with the proper FG-701 tool. I've been doing a lot of work to my 100-year old windows, including taking the sashes out to strip the paint, reapply fresh glazing putty, and repainting the sashes. Just an hour or so ago, I was trying to free up a top sash that had been painted shut, and I accidentally broke the glass. I heard the door chime, and saw my kitchen glassbreak (about 15 feet directly across from the window) had tripped. Shortly thereafter, I armed the system and recorded a video. I went outside, and using a hammer, broke more of the glass as if I was trying to enter. The detector tripped the first time (much to my surprise!

I have purchased two of these for areas in my house with glass panes not suitable for shock sensors that stick to the glass pane itself (eg sliding glass doors, opening windows, etc). I installed them as Zone Type 3, Perimeter Sensor, in my Ademco system.

I purchased a FG701 that simulates a "flex" event followed by sound of breaking glass. The flex event, which was never well-defined anywhere, is basically an object hitting glass prior to a break. Combined, this sensor looks for a flex (thud of something hitting glass), followed by a breaking glass sound. This helps eliminate false-positives. I tested the installation locations with the FG701, mounted the units, and can say they actually work. I re-confirmed it by accidentally triggering the test sound while I had the alarm armed in stay mode :P The alarm instantly went off indicating the faulted zone. Further, I brought my tester to my friend's place with an ADT system that had a similar looking sensor on his wall. Without waiting for me, he went and played with the sensor. It triggered his alarm and the monitoring company called. As a result, I'm certain these devices work quite well.

Note: if you're installing these you really should pick up a FG701. It is difficult to tell if the location of the sensor will pick up both sounds without this device. E.g. how do you know if your drapes are too heavy for the sensor to be 25' away without *really* testing it.

I get 1 or 2 false alarms from this every month. Slamming the microwave or the cabinet under the sink or dropping toys on hardwood will set this off. I'm seriously looking into alternatives.

I've installed hundreds of these, and as long as you following the directions for positioning these are some of the best wireless glass breaks I've used. Very few I installed were defective also the ability to change the sensitivity is very handy!

I bought this as a replacement for a brand system. This product works great and it saved me $150 in comparison with the alarm company.

We installed these units by ourselves to save money. The glass break unit is easy to install using double sided tape. It uses a lithium battery which will last 3-5 years. The glass break sensitivity can be adjusted (low, med, high) - for instances such as yappy dogs that may bark in the high frequency. To test if your dog will set it off, simply modify the control unit to "chime" whenever the system is armed (Armed Stay/Armed Away). We have three small dogs and it hasn't set them off yet.

We installed these units instead of window/door (5816) units since our windows are sliders (left - right) and can open from either side. The alarm company said that 99% of the time, a burglar will break the glass to open the window. It is very infrequent that they would use a glass cutter. We also have motion detectors installed.

Most security products come with some pretty dodgy instructions, but the ones included with the glass break protector were pretty good. Installed in my partially exposed basement and enrolled in the Ademco Vista 20P in 10 minutes.

The 5853 is an excellent product. There is only one important thing you must do. You must order the FG-701 Glass break Detector Tester. It is the only way you can tell if the Glass Break Detector is actually. Easy to install. Easy to program to panel. I didn't know I needed the FG-701 so I had to order it separately from another company and it took 2 weeks to come in. Needless to say I wasn't too happy about that. All in all I like the system and will probably add other items as necessary.
