i don't think there are any alarms with "glass break" sensors, like business alarms have, however you can get impact sensors, which is basicly an accelerometer that wires into the alarm and and movement will set it off, it's all based on sensitivity... breaking the glass should be a hard enough impact to set the alarm off...

you can probably get an impact sensor for her current alarm, contact the manufacture or dealer...

My security system in my car = two large siberian huskies in the back seat...
Best quote ever(MSF instructor)
Then I told them to smash their face into the floor as hard as they could and drive it forward 3 feet. I got a bunch of laughter and of course no one did it. I went on to say that if you weren't willing to do that, that you should rethink any decision to ride without a helmet.

In a situation like this it is better to be proactive in keeping portable valuables out of sight rather than depending on locked doors or alarms. Any time my Mary Jean leaves her purse in the car it lives under the seat. Ditto for cameras or other similar. While its not secure against a thorough search but is probably good enough to eliminate snatch and grab opportunists.

i even hide my satelite radio (which cannot be re-activated if i report it stolen) when i park somewhere that i think it might be broken in to, last time i parked at the transit lot, i hid that and the wrench i was using to tighten my lug nuts... and this is on a truck i have never had keys to, is worth less than the change in your pocket, and has no ignition in it...

Actually, glass break sensors for cars are quite common. They use a hidden mic and they are supposed to be able to determine the sound of broken glass. Many moons ago when I worked in an inner city, everyone had alarms on their cars at work. We learned that if you "clinked" your car keys against your buddy's window, it was close enough to the proper sound to set the alarm off.
Great fun was had by all until managment got annoyed by all the alarms going off and half the warehouse running to the door to click their remotes. heh.
