GE 5820A Recessed 1" Glassbreak Sensor

The GE 5820A is a glass break detector that you can sink into the wall to make it somewhat hard to notice. The only thing visible with the GE 5820A is the thin round head of the detector. The casing of this item is flame retardant ABS plastic and will stand up to a high heat range. The microphone that picks up the sound of glass breaking is an omni-directional microphone and will detect breaking glass in a 25 foot radius.

This detector will pick up the sounds of any of these types of glass breaking:

Plate glass 3/32" to 1/4" (2.39 to 6.4mm)
Tempered glass 1/8" to 1/4" (.125 to 6.4mm)
Wired glass 1/4" (6.4 mm)
Laminated glass 1/8" to 1/4" (.125 to 6.4mm)

If you don't use motion detectors then these are the next best defense for your home or business
