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.

Choose a wired system

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.

Select a reliable security company

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.

Don’t underestimate the value of quality

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:

  • 24/7 monitoring

  • High-tech equipment

  • Reliability

  • Dependable customer service and technical support

Your home security provider can help monitor potential hacking and signal jamming to provide you with greater peace of mind. Ready to review monitored security system options? Contact Brinks Home™ today for a free quote!
