Ring has announced it will release a glass break sensor for its Ring Alarm and Ring Alarm Pro DIY smart security systems.
The Ring Alarm Glass Break Sensor is said to utilize AI technology to accurately detect glass break events, like windows being smashed or cracked, up to 25 feet away.
If the sound is detected, users will receive a notification on the company’s app. Settings can be adjusted to automatically trigger a Ring Alarm siren when in Home or Away mode, and receive a call from its monitoring center if enrolled in 24/7 professional monitoring with a Ring Protect Pro subscription.
Ring Doorbells or Ring Cameras can be set to start recording when the glass break sensor triggers the siren.
The company says the detector is easy to install and can be added to the Ring Alarm or Ring Alarm Pro in minutes by simply mounting it to a wall, ceiling or even furniture near glass doors and windows.
The sensor is powered by three AA alkaline batteries, with an expected battery life up to three years depending on device settings, usage, environment and other factors.
The Ring Alarm Glass Break Sensor will be available beginning Feb. 16 as a single device or a two-pack.
