Description

The Interlogix-5709C-W Glass Break Simulator is designed to test GE/Interlogix ShatterPro Glass Break detectors, as well as any 319.5MHz Qolsys Glass Break Detector. This is the best device for professionally testing any compatible glass break sensors for proper programming and function. Once activated, the device will produce accurate sounds that mimic the shattering of glass. When a glass break sensor hears the sound, it should trigger. This will let the user know that the sensor is functioning properly. Some ShatterPro products support "clap test" function designed for quick and dirty testing but it is not a reliable way to verify proper functionality.

The convenient device is handheld, and it provides real glass breaking sounds for testing your sensors. The different settings on the simulator allow for different types of glass to be tested. Each setting produces a different sound frequency that is associated with a particular type of glass. These types of glass include tempered, plated and laminated glass. By testing for all three glass types, the user can be certain that their glass break sensor will respond to any type of breaking glass. The simulator also offers options for single and continuous sounds so that users can more easily test their sensors as needed.

The Interlogix-5709C-W Glass Break Simulator should ideally be used from multiple locations during the testing process. Doing so will help the user make sure that their glass break detector will work from different angles. The device uses a 3V battery that should be replaced every few years. A red LED light on the device will indicate that the battery strong and that the simulator is in proper function. If the LED light does not illuminate, then the device most likely requires a battery replacement.

When testing any glass breaks, make sure to point the simulator towards the sensor. Ideally, the testing should be done within six feet of the sensor. The test should be repeated from multiple angles to make sure that the sensor can accurately pick up sounds from different directions.

Excellent Glass Break Simulator!

The Interlogix 5709C-W is a glass break simulator designed for use with 319.5 MHz Interlogix Glass Break Sensors. This device is also commonly used for testing other 319.5 MHz glass break sensors including Qolsys Glass Break Sensors. We have found that the Interlogix 5709C-W works very well in testing glass break sensors and making sure that they are working properly. However, the device does need to be used with a direct line of sight to the glass break sensor, and it should be used within six (6) feet of the sensor when testing. But any downsides for the Interlogix 5709C-W are relatively minor, and they do not stop us from giving this product a 5-Star rating.

The biggest thing we like about the Interlogix 5709C-W is that it reliably tests glass break sensors. The device offers different sound frequencies for a variety of glass types, including tempered, plated, and laminated glass. This makes the Interlogix 5709C-W quite versatile and useful for testing glass break sensors monitoring different types of glass. We appreciate the fact that the Interlogix 5709C-W works reliably and that it is trustworthy for testing various Interlogix and Qolsys Glass Break Sensors.

The most prominent downside regarding the Interlogix 5709C-W is the fact that it has a very limited range when being used to test glass break sensors. The device is supposed to be used within six (6) feet of the glass break sensor, and it needs a direct line of sight. And coupled with the fact that you are supposed to test your glass break sensors from multiple angles can really mean getting up close with your sensors. You will likely need to test from many positions, and you will need to make sure you are close enough to the sensor each time. If you have multiple glass break sensors, then this can quickly become tedious. Still, this is a relatively minor downside, and we can still confiidently give the Interlogix 5709C-W 5 Stars.

Good: Reliable, Different Sound Frequencies

Bad: Limited Range, Needs Direct Line of Sight, Must Test from Multiple Angles

Bottom Line: 5 Stars
