Installing Glass Break Detectors

Step by Step Guide:

If you are installing new equipment to your alarm system, make sure you have already added this Glass Break Detector to your alarm system before you install this piece of equipment. You may also have received our updated Glass Break detector, which will look like the sensor in the image below. 


Common Installation Locations

  • In a room with three or more windows
  • Within 15 feet of all windows that you want to be protected


Avoid installing the sensor in a room with sound dampening objects:

  • Heavy drapes/blinds
  • Partitions

These and other objects will shorten the effective range of detection.

Best Practices

  • Ceiling Mount - Place the detector within 15 feet of all windows that you want to be protected
  • Wall Mount - Place the detector within 15 feet of an adjacent or opposing wall of the window(s). The detector is not designed to provide coverage to windows located on the SAME wall as the sensor.

Installing Glass Break Sensor

  1. Consult the user manual included in your packaging for detailed installation, testing and maintenance instructions.
  2. Remove the adhesive backing
  3. Press firmly and hold in place for 30 seconds

  • The glass break detector I am trying to install is a Luna Model LP-GB01-345 and isn't responding to the "turning" on the base instructions for activation. I also tried various combinations of clicking and/or holding the button on the side of the unit. Any other suggestions?

    • Paul Christian Thanks for reaching out to Cove. That is a new version of the glass break. We will be updating this article soon to reflect the newer models of glass break. This likely means that your glass break is not properly pushed to our backend API.  You have tried all the things we would try. Would you mind giving us a call to get this taken care of, please? Call us Mon.-Fri, 8:00am-6:00pm MST. After hours install assistance and basic technical support: Mon-Fri 6pm-9pm, & Sat 8am-9pm
