    I am currently fitting an Enforcer system in my house. I have a door contact with a shock sensor for my back door. Over Christmas I had an attempted brake in an they broke the glass in my back door before being disturbed by a neighbour, the question I have is will the shock sensor detect the glass being smashed if I attach it to the door frame or do I need to attach it to the door I was thinking it was a bit bulky to be attached to the door and could keep getting knocked when using the door.

    A shock sensor will not detect breaking glass, it would detect the shock wave from the person breaking the glass.

    The problem is it may not be detected depending on how the glass is broken and the sensitivity of the sensor.

    normally the sensor is connected to the frame and the contact to the door, however with wireless devices it is possible to do this the other way round and all depends on what space you have.

    Having the sensor on the door would make it make prone to be damaged, doors opening outwards for example could expose it to the elements.

    Thanks for the reply . Yes I was meaning the shock created breaking the glass not the actual glass breaking. When they broke it they must have used a lot of force it is a double glassed unit they had thrown half a house brick stright though it, it travelled the full length of the kitchen. Just wondering if that would be picked up by a sensor on the frame or would it be better to just use it as a shock sensor and stick it to the glass. Don't really want to attach the sensor to the door I think it will get damaged.

    Quite agree would not look right on glass. Photo attached as requested. A5194EDA-3908-4AA0-BE2B-D52E7A821589.jpeg
