The transmitter box for the window contacts has a built-in vibration detector. If it is mounted to the window sash, it should detect any rattling of the window.

You can buy window sensors that will sound, but you won't get a call. There are no "glass breaking" sensors that will give you a call if glass breaks. I would put the motion sensor on a low shelf where it can't be seen, in an area an intruder will have to pass by (i.e. main hallway) Also if you have window or yard decals (can be purchased on ebay) from a reputable alarm company, and the glass shattering alarm goes off, the intruder will think they have tripped the main alarm just from the sound of the alarm on the Mace glass break detector.

Nope. There is nothing that I am aware of that will work with breaking glass with this system. You could attach one of the window motion sensors to the glass itself with 2-sided tape.

No, sorry, the glass detector is an optional item and no it will not tell the alarm to sound off. Which means that the alarm will not call you. However, if someone was to break the glass window it would mean that they would want to gain entery. If you have a door / window sensor the alarm would then trigger and call you. May I suggest pointing a motion sensor on the window or glass door to confirm that the alarm will trigger.
