DIY Security Systems May Be Vulnerable to Hackers

 

We meet people every week who ask us why they should trust us with their life safety. We understand how first-time security shoppers may not know the benefits of the high quality CPSS Security System, like the one you may have in your home or business.

They may not be aware of our team of professionals in the monitoring station or our highly trained service technicians available 24/7.

A recent trend in consumer technology are the new do-it-yourself “DIY” security gadgets available over the counter or just thrown in the mail for someone to self-install. While this trend sounds convenient, it provides an opportunity for basic criminals to take advantage of the vulnerabilities of these lower quality systems.

We saw a video earlier today that demonstrates how a DIY system can be fooled by a $2 wireless emitter that mimics the frequency of the sensors. We found this to be extremely troubling, and wanted to bring it to your attention – should you know of anyone considering a security product like this.

If you have friends or neighbors considering security solutions, share this video with them – and be sure to remind them that with your referral of CPSS, both of you will get a free month of monitoring*.
