Hayden Blackford Asked: Can you disable an alarm system with an RF scrambler.?

I just got a new Honeywell Lynx Touch completely wireless alarm system put into today.It has GSM Cellular backup and everything is wireless.I am wondering if someone can use a rf jammer to jam up the signals and break in.


Aelita Answered:
Anything that has been engineered, can be reverse engineered. If someone wanted to put enough effort in to it, then yes. Wireless is insecure anyways, and it's not as reliable as wired sensors / receivers. Entirely possible, but not very likely. IF you have reason to believe that someone is going to attempt to break in using the method described above, then you should take extra steps to secure your home / business.

Hope this helps.
