What's the Difference Between an ADT Glass Break and a Honeywell 5853?
The Honeywell 5853 is the same glass break sensor provided by ADT. This means that an ADT glass break sensor can be used in the same manner as a Honeywell 5853. If a user leaves ADT, they can bring their old ADT glass break sensor with them and use it like a 5853. Learn more about this sensor.

Which Glass Break Sensors Work w/ ADT Security Systems?
ADT equipment is often comparable to that of Honeywell. In fact, many ADT sensors are simply re-branded Honeywell sensors. For that reason, Honeywell glass break sensors will often work with ADT alarm systems. Learn more about which glass break sensors are compatible with ADT security panels.

How Does a Glass Break Sensor Work?
A glass break sensor actively listens for the sound of breaking glass. These security devices will activate upon hearing the low-pitch "thud" of an object striking against glass, while simultaneously hearing the high-pitch "shattering" of the glass itself. Learn more about glass break sensors.
Added:

What is a Glass Break Sensor?
Glass break sensors are very important devices for security systems. These devices listen for the sound of breaking glass. If a window or glass casing is broken, the device will hear the sound and send a signal to the panel to perform the programmed response. Learn more about glass break sensors.
Added:

How Does a Glass Break Detector Work?
Many people monitor windows and glass cases using glass break detectors. These devices work by listening for both the thud of an object striking against glass and the actual shattering of glass itself. Both sounds must be present for the device to activate. Learn more about glass break detectors.
Added:

Do I Install a Glass Break Detector Directly On a Window?
A glass break detector should not be installed directly on a window. If the window were to be shattered by an intruder, the glass break may become damaged in the process. That is why glass breaks should be placed near windows, but not directly on them. Learn more about glass break detectors.
Added:

Where Should I Install a Glass Break Sensor?
A glass break detector should be placed as close to a window or glass case as possible with no objects blocking its path. This will help to ensure that the device will activate in the event that the window or case is shattered. Learn more about glass break sensors and where to place them.

What Glass Breaks Are Compatible with a Honeywell VISTA-21iP?
The VISTA-21ip is compatible with most wired glass break devices and the 5853 wireless glass break. You must have an available zone for the glass break.
