Your home alarm system should make you and your family feel safe and keep your valuables secure, but hackers can turn that sense of security upside-down. Because some alarm systems send wireless signals, they can be vulnerable to hacking, disablement, or jamming.
Fortunately, you can take steps to reduce the risk of alarm system hacking.
Most of the vulnerability in home alarm systems occurs with wireless systems. This makes it possible for would-be hackers to intercept signals and also makes alarm systems vulnerable to jamming. With a wired system, however, there’s no danger of signal interception. While burglars can certainly cut wires if they know where they are, it can be easier to jam a wireless system.
You can also protect your home alarm system from hacking by working with a trusted home security system provider. Your home security system provider can ensure you have equipment that’s not easy to hack and help you implement other measures to keep your home and family safe.
Even if one company costs a bit more than others, there’s usually a good reason for that. Consider a home security provider that offers the following:
