Frequently Asked Questions
What is a security shock sensor
Shock sensors detect impacts to windows and doors, alerting owners of an attempted break-in. Shock sensors are a valuable part of any security system as they can trigger your alarm before an intruder enters your property.
How does a shock sensor work?
Shock sensors detect significant shockwaves and smaller repeat vibrations to determine if someone is trying to force their way into your property. If the sensor detects the vibrations associated with a window or door being attacked, it will trigger your alarm system, notify keyholders and alert our monitoring team.
What does a piezoelectric sensor do?
Piezoelectric sensors convert physical changes in speed, strain and pressure into electrical signals. By detecting minute shockwaves, they can trigger an alarm if someone tries to break into your property.
