Do you mount the 5853 on the window glass?

<Back

This unit will not mount directly on the glass of the window. This is meant to work as a listener. The detector will listen for the sound of glass breaking and the actual flex sound of the glass before it breaks.

On average, any glass break detector will listen for the sound of breaking glas within a 25 foot radius of where you install it.
