Would glass break sensor work outdoors for car break-ins?

There’s been a wave of car break-ins on my block, with smashed windows. I was thinking maybe I could add a glass break sensor to my Ring system and mount it outside next to my driveway. (It would be sheltered from rain by a covered porch.) The sensor could trigger driveway camera (or even an alarm). Would this work? If not, maybe a product suggestion – outdoor driveway camera with glass break detection!

Hi @user29537. I would not recommend this for a few reasons. First, The Glass Break Sensor is not rated for outdoor use. Next, with it being the outdoors, there could be a sound that can cause a false positive and inadvertently set of your Ring Alarm system.
