Amazon Ring can now track when glass is broken at your home – how to set it up
AMAZON RING has just added a new sensor to its alarm range and it could help you stop a burglar.
The new Ring Alarm Glass Break Sensor uses artificial intelligence to detect someone breaking a glass window or door to enter your home.
The Ring website explains: "Monitor glass windows and doors for break-in attempts with Ring Alarm Glass Break Sensor.
"Using AI technology, the sensor detects the sound of glass breaking up to 7.6 meters.
"Get mobile alerts when the Glass Break Sensor detects the sound of glass shattering in your home, or set the sensor to automatically sound your Ring Alarm siren when armed in Home or Away mode."
The one catch is that you'll also need to buy or already own a Ring Alarm or Alarm Pro for the Glass Break Sensor to connect to.
The sensor itself is fairly cheap and is priced at $39.99/£35.
It's only 3.78 inches wide and is a small circle shaped that can be attached to a wall.

You'll need to connect it to your Ring app and place it near the entrance of your home you're most concerned about.
It will then use AI to monitor the sound in your home and listen out for the sound of a break in.
The sensor is said to run for three years on just one set of three AA batteries.
It has a scanning range of around 25 feet.
If it does detect sinister activity, you should get a notification on your Ring app.
You can also change your settings so a siren is automatically triggered once the Glass Break Sensor is set off.
You can pre order or register your interest in the product from today but Ring won't start shipping the sensor until mid February.
