Criminals Beat DIY Alarms – Wireless System Jamming
After a recent article published by the Mail Online it has come to our attention that some customers may be concerned about the potential hacking or jamming of their systems. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4700290/Criminals-beat-alarm-click-electronic-device.html In the Mail Online article, a hand-held USB stick was purchased online and configured to send a wireless jamming signal, rendering a DIY alarm system inoperable. Ken Munro, founder of Pen Test Partners, stated ‘Consumers should look for “two-way” systems, which means the alarms can detect jamming attacks like this one’. The wireless systems installed by Lifeline are manufactured by Texecom. The wireless intruder alarm systems manufactured by Texecom contain Ricochet® mesh technology. Ricochet mesh technology utilises ‘two-way’ bi-directional communication between Ricochet enabled devices and the control system.

Any attempt to jam a Texecom wireless system is identified by the security system and the […]

Keep Safe & Secure this Christmas Time
With the holiday season now upon us, it is a good opportunity to review our safety and security habits. We receive reminders throughout the year, however there is no doubt, at this time of year we are at more risk of the devastating effects of fire or intrusion. This is true of both home and business owners. To start with, many of us go away for the holidays leaving homes or places of work unoccupied for longer than usual periods of time. If this is you this year, then just take a few moments to consider how best to protect your premises. This might involve firstly limiting the number of people you tell. The more people that know you will be away the more chance the information might fall into the wrong hands. Random light timers will help provide the impression you are still home. Your living room can be like a shop window to a passing intruder, so keep valuables out of site, use curtains or blinds to make it difficult to see in. Most of us place packaging from presents and gifts out openly on display ready for rubbish collection day. But don’t forget you are also […]
