Glass break sensor

Glass break sensor

It would be great to have an actual glass break sensor for the alarm system. It’s a real short coming of the ring alarm system that otherwise is a very good system. I do not wish to use an echo to listen for glass break sounds. A dedicated glass break sensor that is fine tuned to the sounds of breaking glass and can pick up the shock waves from glass breakage would be a much better solution

A home security system is designed to detect as well as prevent home invasions. When you set your home security alarm, you expect to sleep peacefully throughout the night. If you have to work all day or be away from your home for several hours, you’d like to know that when you leave your valuables will be safe under lock-and-key. That’s not always the case where burglars are concerned. They will try everything they can to get in including breaking the glass.

 

Door and window sensors are set off when a door or window is opened while the alarm is set to “Stay” or “Away”. Thieves will sometimes break the glass in order to unlatch a door or unlock a window. With glass break sensors, the sound of breaking glass would cause the alarm to go off. A blaring alarm would startle any intruder causing them to run away immediately. The glass break sensors have the ability to determine the distinct volume of breaking glass. The vibration, or frequency is unique, therefore the glass break sensors would be able to send a signal over the Ring Alarm Z-Wave network that an intruder has broken the glass. Then, the alarm would sound and the monitoring company would receive a signal that your house has been compromised.

 

To Ring Developers – Please explain WHY you have NOT produced a Glass Break Sensor for your Ring Alarm System. Anything other than, it will be release on this date is not acceptable. There are too many people requesting this device and to not produce one is ignorance on Ring’s part.

 

I will await a proper response to this concern.

Unfortunately asking ring about this is a waste of time. Many of us have been asking for years. We always get the same BS response that they have passed it along to the proper team, and will not discuss the possibility of future feature or product updates. 

It's almost like Ring doesn't want to keep any of their customers.

Those of us in the UK don't have Echo Guard even as a stopgap so would be keen to know what's happening with this?

I'd be very keen to know from Ring when some of the kit available in the US will become available to UK customers? Specifically, either a smoke/co listener or alarm and the flood and freeze sensors? I also assume Ring will eventually have to give in and introduce a glass break sensor, can this be immediately available in both markets rather than a long and unknown wait after a US launch? Thanks!

I'd like to send a request that Ring develops a glass break sensor.  I'd be interested in purchasing a few of them.  Thank you!

Also adding that'd I'd purchase multiple glass break sensors if they were ever developed. Biggest shortcoming of the Ring Alarm system.

I agree this would be a good feature. In the meantime, I've setup Alexa to listen for glass breaking and smoke detectors using Guard. Alexa is integrated with Ring so this gets turned on and off when Ring is armed/disarmed.

Need one ASAP I have been looking around and found anouther company with the same price /per mon that has it.. I have a Law Enforncent background and belive this is a very importand to have.. RING get it done..  work somethhing out with a company that makes them... We belive in you 

New Neighbor

Yep. Make a glass break sensor. Take my money. Don't want an echo. 

New Neighbor

I agree.  I've been watching the Ring Alarm.  I like the system, but I won't buy one until they add glass break sensors.
