Ring Alarm is adding a sensor to detect breaking glass from up to 25 feet away, the company said in a blog post Wednesday.

It will use artificial intelligence to identify the sound and send a notification to your Ring app. The sensor itself can be mounted to a wall, ceiling or piece of furniture near glass doors or windows. 

Glass-breaking sensors have become common features of home security systems. Competitors like SimpliSafe and Abode also offer the capability. The Ring Alarm Glass Break sensor is available for preorder and will cost $40. Shipping starts Feb. 16.
