Add this alarm sensor to your Visonic alarm system and enjoy 360deg. of glass break coverage, a tamper switch and a long and short range detection of fragile windows in your home or business.

Wireless means easy installation for this highly sensitive wireless glass break detector. It features an omni-directional acoustic sensor with 360 degree coverage of possible glass break areas. Mount it on any wall or ceiling and anywhere in a room to enjoy its superior full-room glass monitoring. Another bonus feature of this sensor alarm is its tamper alert, protecting it from being deactivated or interrupted. Also useful is its low battery indicator, alerting you when it's time to change them; many glass break detectors don't have this feature.

The MCT-501 can be mounted as close as 1m (3.3 ft.) and as far as 6m (20 ft.) from plate, tempered, laminated and wired glass. For armor-coated glass, the sensor should be mounted no further than 3.65m (12 ft.).
