What Components Make Up a Business Security System?

There are many types of sensors, detectors, cameras, and control panels available when planning and designing your business security system. At Ackerman Security, we do not believe in one-size-fits-all security. Every business is unique and deserves a custom solution.

Through the decades of our experience, many existing security and burglary alarm systems have key blindspots that can be easily exploited by criminals. Motion detectors are highly effective at covering broad areas with showrooms, hallways, and warehouses but burglars may be able to evade detection if all areas are not monitored. Sensors on doors and indoor cameras covering entryways are essential to protecting your business, but windows are often neglected.

Just like outdoor cameras, a glass break detector can trigger your security alarm before anyone enters your buildings. Glass break detectors are highly effective at discouraging further vandalism beyond a broken window or shattered glass door fronts.

For this reason, Ackerman Security recommends the use of glass break detectors as part of your overall business security.

How Does a Glass Break Detector Work?

Sometimes, the name says it all. Glass break detectors work using acoustic sensors or shock sensors to detect the specific sound frequency or vibration that occurs when glass breaks. For any business with windows, glass showrooms, or glass door fronts, a glass break sensor detects a break instantly and triggers the alarm to sound.

But how does a glass break sensor detect this specific sound?

An In-depth Look into Glass Break Sensors

When your system is armed, glass break detectors are always listening. Generally, glass break detectors respond to two sounds: the thud of an object striking the glass and the high-pitched shatter of the glass breaking. When both are detected in quick succession, the sensor reacts.

Reducing False Alarms

False alarms can be frustrating and cause unnecessary stress and even expense. Loud noises, slamming doors, or even street-front sounds can cause low-quality security systems to alert. With an Ackerman Security glass break detector, there is a distinct high-pitched sound of broken glass. These sophisticated sensors are adjusted to the specific sensitivity to reduce false alarms.

Improved Performance

The best security system will deter criminals from your business. Outdoor security cameras are a passive form of security warning anyone with mischief on their mind to move along. A glass break detector accelerates your burglary alarm sounding and improves the response time of emergency responders.

In the case of a window break-in or glass shattering at the front doors, Ackerman Security monitoring services react rapidly. You will also be alerted via mobile devices the moment a glass break sensor detects broken glass.
The faster your alarm sounds, the more likely burglars will disperse or be apprehended.

Benefits of Incorporating Glass Break Detectors in Your Business Security System

Apart from offering peace of mind and faster response times, glass break detectors pack a punch with their benefits.

Enhanced Security: Cover Multiple Windows with One Sensor

Consider the scenario of your office or store with multiple windows. You can't possibly have a motion detector for every window. In many businesses, doors, halls, and inventory cannot be monitored with motion sensors.

One well-placed glass break sensor can monitor several windows within its range, giving you wider coverage with fewer devices. This reduces the costs of building the system and minimizes the footprint of security systems within your business.

Preventing False Alarms: Reducing False Positives with Advanced Technology

Ackerman Security uses top-tier glass break detectors with advanced technology. These sensors are designed to distinguish between everyday high-pitched noises and actual glass breaking, effectively reducing false alarms.
