The Honeywell 5800SS1 is a wireless shock sensor used to protect a window or glass door. We recommend using the shock sensor instead of the Honeywell 5853 glass break detector in rooms with weird acoustics like kitchens, bathrooms or skylights. Each pane of glass that you are protecting will require its own wireless shock sensor. The shock sensor will cover the following glass types: plate, laminate, wired, sealed insulated, coated and tempered, up to 1/4" thick.

The installation of 5800SS1 wireless shock sensor is extremely easy. The sensor should be mounted 1" from the corner edge of the glass frame for optimal detection. You should first test the range of the 5800SS1 back to your wireless alarm system using the Go/No Go test. The RF transmitting range of the device is 200' nominal. If the sensor is showing good signal strength, then you need to verify detection by holding the device up to the glass and tapping the opposite corner (up to 10' away) with a screwdriver handle. The wireless alarm system will let you know if the Honeywell 5800SS1 is working properly in that position. Assuming it is, clean the glass with water and isopropyl alcohol and once the glass is dry, remove the adhesive backing tape and press the 5800SS1 firmly onto the glass pane. Test operation a final time after installation is complete to ensure the wireless shock sensor will work as expected.

The Honeywell 5800SS1 is powered by (1) lithium CR2 battery. You should get (10) years of battery life from the sensor under normal conditions. Once the 5800SS1 is reporting a low battery signal to your wireless home alarm system, you will need to replace the battery. You should use a screwdriver to carefully pry off the sensor's cover. Once you have installed a fresh battery, simply replace the sensor cover to continue protection.

It could if it causes the window for example to vibrate. A door is less likely. Sorry to not give a better answer but it really depends on the situation, but it will not trigger on sound alone.
Would the shock sensors be triggered potentially by pets. Loud dog barking for example.
You would be better using the 5870API as it is designed for that type of application, here is a link to the device:
I recall Ademco had a wireless shock sensor that could be attached to valuables, such as a flatscreen TV, painting, safe, etc. Will this sensor work such an application?
I am not aware of any glass break detector that will detect this type glass breakage. I recommend just installing a glass break and motion detector as backup. After the intruder cuts the glass with his fancy elastomer ring he will enter the space and trip the motion detector.
If someone puts an elastomer ring down, and then carefully cuts a circle within it, would it trigger this sensor? I don't see any mention of cutting glass triggering it, and a screwdriver handle (to test) seems overly loud for a thief. Also, being wireless; how jam resistant are these things?
It certainly could as it detects vibrations. We've seen thunder cause false alarms with shock sensors.
Will this trigger during other situations like an earthquake, loud bass from a car, or someone or something knocking on a window?
