SS III How to test Glass Break

Installed my upgraded system SS III and like it!

I installed the Glass Break and it shows it in the system.  
How do you test the sensor once it is in operation?

I tried the old way of pushing the test button and clapping hands but does not seem to work with the new GB sensor

Clapping works but you have to clap loudly.  You could do like captain did and break an actual window lol.  I believe his was an old one that he found and tested with.

When in "test" mode, the sensor is just in "noise" mode, so a clap works fine.  In "real" mode, there are additional filters applied, so breaking glass is the best test.  Metal against ceramic is sometimes enough.  I dropped a bundle of metal tubes once and that set it off.

I downloaded a couple of YouTube videos of glass breaking.  This one worked when the volume was turned up. Search "Breaking Window Glass"
