Honeywell FG1625F - Flush Mount Glass Break Detector Reviews
Submitted on 09/17/2020 Alarm Grid
The Honeywell FG1625F is a wired flush-mount glass break detection sensor. This sensor has a built-in microphone that is finely tuned and specifically designed to detect the sound of glass breaking. It uses Honeywell's FlexCore signal processor to respond to glass break events accurately. This prevents false alarms due to the sensor responding to similar sounds. This is a reliable wired glass break sensor that can be used nicely with nearly any wired system or wired to wireless converter module. We give the Honeywell FG1625F a 5-Star rating.
There are many positive aspects regarding the Honeywell FG1625F. For one, it can be used with nearly any type of glass. As long as the glass is 10mm thick or less, then it should work fine with the Honeywell FG1625F. The sensor has a nice detection range of 25 feet, which gives you flexibility in choosing a mounting location. You can even use it to monitor multiple glass windows if placed strategically. Just remember that the sensor must have a direct line of sight to any window it is monitoring. The Honeywell FG1625F also has DIP switches so that you can set the sensitivity for the sensor. We also like the fact that the sensor has a special "hand-clap" feature that you can use to verify that it is working properly.
There are not many downsides for the Honeywell FG1625F. As a hardwired sensor, it must be wired to the panel or a compatible wired to wireless converter. This can be inconvenient, especially if you are not used to wiring. It's also important to note that the sensor will draw up to 22mA of current from the panel. This is not a large amount of power, but you should still consider it in your current calculation. Overall, the Honeywell FG1625F earns a 5-Star score.
Good: Works w/ Most Types of Glass, 25-Feet Detection Range, Monitor Multiple Windows, Sensitivity Adjustments, Hand-Clap Feature
Bad: Must Be Wired, Draws Powerr From Panel
Bottom Line: 5 Stars
