Glass break sensors

Ron or whomever can answer this:

I'm looking into getting some glass break sensors for my Ademco Vista 10ancient system.


Do you guys know if these sensors will detect glass breakage through walls?

I specifically want to mount one in our living room which faces our rear French doors along with some windows, but, wondering if a detector will detect the windows through walls, about 10-15ft from sensor.

Any help would be marvelous!

No, a wall will prevent the glass break from hearing the sound of glass breaking. Even heavy curtains will reduce the effective range of the device by as much as a third.
