Honeywell SIXGB Frequently Asked Questions

Are Glass Break Sensors Effective?
Glass break sensors are very effective in detecting the sound of breaking glass. These devices are very reliable when it comes to monitoring windows and protective glass casings. The dual-frequency detection process also prevents false alarms. Learn more about glass break sensors and how they work.
Added:

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.

Are Honeywell's Wireless Sensors Encrypted?
Honeywell's SiX Series wireless sensors are secured using 128-bit AES encryption to prevent signal tampering. Honeywell's 5800 series wireless sensors do not provide this feature. The 5800 series 4-button keyfobs, do provide a rolling code encryption to make remote arming and disarming more safe.
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.

What Wireless Sensors Can I Use with the Honeywell Lyric Controller?
When looking for a new wireless sensor for a Honeywell Lyric Controller, you will want to choose a 5800 Series sensor or a SiX Series sensor. Any of these sensors will work well with the Lyric Controller. Check out the Alarm Grid website to find great wireless sensors for the Lyric Controller.
Added:

How Do Alarm Sensors Communicate?
The method that an alarm sensor uses to communicate with the panel varies depending upon the type of sensor. Common communication methods include a wireless RF signal, a hardwired connection and WIFI communication. Continue reading to learn more.
