Perils of Tech

Dec 2, 2020 | 10:13 1 Car thefts are on the rise as thieves use radio frequency amplifiers to clone key fob signals. Seems they get the frequency from keys left at your front door or radio signal when you lock your car in a parking lot. Today’s CBC article talks about cars but in our case crooks got the frequency from our garage door opener to break into our garage as well as at least five other garages around us. We put a stop to that by installing a switch that turns off the power to our garage door at night and while we are away. Reply With Quote

    Clear signage, “video monitored “ ( for security and training purposes😊), as we as clearly visible and hidden cameras to demonstrate some level of risk to the perps.

    Unfortunately all we have to fight back or defend ourselves is deterants,
    Signage, “ beware of dog, wife bites”, etc Reply With Quote

    Bad enough stealing the stuff but the mess left behind was almost worse (ripped TVs off the walls etc). Reply With Quote

    Same type of thieves here. I guess if my tech was higher they might change their game. Smash a window, then the ignition, and drive through the locked gates on the way out. Then dealing with insurance............ the worst part of it all. Reply With Quote

    Well hidden battery shut off switches are a nice touch for older vehicles... which are less alluring... and a good noisy dog with multiple 24hr-7day security cameras... plus always someone at farmstead. Reply With Quote
