Wireless Glass Break Detector
The SiXGB is the glass break detector specially designed for the Lyric Controller. Similar to Honeywell's other wireless glass break detectors the SiXGB is a discreet, simple-to-install glass break. If you need to protect a room full of windows, then the SiXGB is the device you've been looking for. Get it today and we'll help you program it to your system.
The SIXGB is the newest of Honeywell's wireless glass break detectors and the only SiX series glass break. Honeywell's revolutionary SIX technology uses a 2.4GHz WIFI signal to communicate bi-directional, encrypted RF transmissions between the sensor and the alarm panel. This means the sensors are able to speak back and forth to the panel and constantly update battery life, RF signal strength and possibly more in the future. The 128-bit AES encryption is the first in class for peripheral sensors and offers advanced supervision protocols. The other benefit of SiX series contacts is an increased RF range of up to 300 feet. Currently, the Lyric Controller is the only alarm system that supports this technology but that may change over time.
The SiXGB's compact disk-shaped housing offers a sleek and convenient installation in contrast to its bulky predecessor the 5853. The new clean look does not limit its capabilities. There is a still the standard 25 foot radius of glass break protection. However now there are LEDs built into the device for testing and enrolling purposes.
When installing any glass break detector, placement is paramount. Ideally you want to have "line of sight" between the protected glass and the sensor. This serves for optimal sensitivity for detecting the "thud" and/or "crash" depending on how the pane is physically broken. There is a list of compatible types of glass that will trigger this sensor. Be sure to verify your glass meets these requirements. It can be found in the installation manual.
The SiXGB is powered by a 3 Volt CR123 battery that is included in the purchase of the sensor. This device should function on a single battery for five years with typical use.
