How your House got Hacked!

Many of the top out of the box home security systems sell high-end systems designed to look as if they will provide you with the best security to protect your residence and family if 13_hai_panelsomeone decides to target your home.  Many of these new systems allow you to control and monitor your system remotely. While statistically homes with a home security system are less likely to be targeted by robbers than those with one, don’t think your new high-end system is perfect.  As someone said if you build a better mouse trap, nature will build a better mouse.

You see all those fancy electronics have inherited flaws. For example two researchers say that some of the top-selling home alarm setups can be easily subverted to either suppress the alarms or create multiple false alarms that would render them unreliable. False alarms could be set off using a simple tool from up to 250 yards away, though disabling the alarm would require closer proximity of about 10 feet from the home. Thieves can walk up, pick your lock, suppress your alarm, do what they want, and then leave without so much as a peep from your alarm,

The underlying technology of many of these wireless alarm systems rely on radio signals between the various wireless components and depending on the setting on the alarm panel and the sensors the alarm system will interpret an event.  With the right equipment you can pick up and decrypt those signals and do what you will.  Now mind you most burglars don’t have this type of equipment, but high-end neighborhood will attack high-end crooks.
