Sound Detection Systems
Sound activated systems ( acoustic sensors ) utilize sound detection to guard enclosed areas such as an empty home. They use supersensitive microphone sensors installed on walls, ceilings, and floors to detect any sound caused during a break-in. Since each home may have different levels of normal ambient noise from appliances such as air conditioners, refrigerators and furnaces or noisy cars in the neighbors driveway, the sensitivity of the sensor can be tuned for each individual home installation.
If ambient noise levels are too high, this system may not function well enough to use successfully. If your empty home is in the noisy environment category, consider the wide array of infrared sensors , microwave sensors , photoelectric sensors and electromagnetic sensors available on the market.
Acoustic Glass Break Sensors
When an electric circuit system can be bypassed by smashing through a window, acoustic glass break sensors are a convenient low cost solution. Glassbreak Sensors are usually wall mounted devices. They work when the microphone sensor hears the sound of breaking glass and triggers an alarm. It's great for safeguarding rooms in your home with many windows. A combination of glassbreak and motion sensors is also quite effective.
