Glass Break Alert

maybe-later

#1

My Wyze Camera should alert me if it ever hears the sound of glass breaking. My understanding is glass creates a unique sound when it breaks, and this sound can be identified through audio analysis done in software.

Just curious, why would you need a glass break alert?


#3

The only thing I can think about having this would be for security purposes if someone breaks in by breaking a window, but I’m not sure if what OP is asking is even possible? Being there are so many different types of glass, so many variables to take into consideration…


#4

Dedicated glass break sensors are part of many professionally installed home security systems.

I would think breaking glass would trigger a sound detection. Currently, you’d get a cloud notice but not video on your SD card.

I believe its also available on Alexa -
"Dec 13, 2018 - Amazon’s Alexa Guard can alert you if an Echo detects smoke alarm, breaking glass. You’ll get a heads-up on your phone if an Echo device in " – google search results.
I have not yet tested this out, as I am currently fond of my windows and dont feel like replacing any LOL
