It all starts with the vulnerability of electronic devices Can someone else remote open my garage door, and are Wifi garage door openers secure, it’s still why does my garage door randomly open by itself? Are Wifi garage door openers secure Are Wifi smart garage door openers safe? Can smart garage door remete automation be hacked? Not all smart garage door openers and automations are safe. Most use strong encryption for data transmission. The problem is that any device connected to the internet can be hacked, this is the great weakness of the automatisms and connected locks. In this regard, it is easier for a hacker to enter your garage using computer techniques and / or signal jammers as long as you think you can close it than by forcibly picking excellent security locks locked. Why does my garage door randomly open by itself 9 Reasons why up-and-over garage doors tend to open by themselves: Problems with wireless Remote control not working or broken due to falls on the ground Lack of assistance Wrong settings and incorrect wiring Damaged electronic boards Blinding of the photocells and / or sensor misalignment Micro switches or tampers jammed or melted by the heat, poor watertightness of the equipment containment boxes Machining or milling residues on the circuits Attempts to break in or disturb the signal through Jammer and / or Rifd readers Can someone else remote open my garage door with special radiofrequency devices? I recommend that you also read an article on Jammers, read it here.
The excess of comfort and electronics make you lose points in safety In the struggle between cops and thieves, the radio frequency jammers and the rifid readers are the protagonists. Precisely because these are the frequently asked questions that scare many families: Now let’s get to the bottom of a topic very dear to comfortable and technological people. One of the problems that emerges with the increase in technology is the vulnerability of devices that do not use keys but remote commands. Here’s what upsets those who spend and spread in the technological sector applied to security. Let’s start with the theft of modern cars. Car thieves no longer get their hands dirty and from cars to imminent arrive to modern home automation. Without breaking in, without forcing, in the blink of an eye, if it happens to cars think what can happen in a modern connected home! Until a few years ago it took time and effort to steal a car, now the game has changed. The driver runs the risk of losing the car because he has not been able to verify that the vehicle is really closed. Complaints also come from electricians and car mechanics Auto mechanics declare: “Technology increases comfort but with digital security we are still a little behind!” This is what many German engineers think: “A lot of auto makers are so doomed that they sell stuff called Keyless and it doesn’t really guarantee any security. The consumer then has to spend more money on a very secure anti-theft device which should be provided by the manufacturer. This is a disservice! With a mechanical key or a remote control you are the one who intervenes on the closure and connection, it is also called dead man closure; while in the Keyless system the doors close autonomously, without the intervention of the owner, who, moving away, cannot check whether the vehicle has been closed. Come? Are we joking? Can all this technology and the car stay open? Yes, this is the need for the excess of technological comfort. The thief goes into action without even getting his hands dirty! Jammers available with a click online Going deeper into the topic of technology and applying tricks such as the use of jammers, which are so-called modems and signal jammers, these prevent the car’s locking system from being activated. The Jammers themselves intervene to disconnect the routers of the various homes, users will see the disconnection and in an attempt to reconnect to the internet they will not notice that they are entering a connection first that uses the thief / hacker’s Jammer as a bridge. This technique used by thieves skilled in computer hacking can be deepened with online research, which I recommend doing, and is called Man in the Middle. In the fight between cops and robbers, the Jammer is the protagonist. The sale of these products in Italy and on the European free market is not legal, however for 300, 400, 500 Euros it is possible to get them in the Duty Free Area or online in Jammer. They are also illegal in Switzerland but can be bought online at the speed of a couple of clicks. Getting them is therefore child’s play. Towards the new frontier of RIFD readers You can see jammers in action through various online sources and form ideas and opinions about them. However, what will surely make those who love comfort tremble are the new RFID proximity readers, some as large as a 20 cent coin, devices that allow sniffing, reading and cloning of RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) tags. Imagine one of these readers thrown by the thief, from the street, into a pot holder in the garden, becoming invisible to your eyes, ready to pierce your alarm system and take all the home automation codes. With these devices you pretend to be a reader; available in stand alone mode without a PC and the on-line kits have everything you need to start an RFID search. RFID proximity readers and computer hacking in their entirety are the real burglars of the third millennium. They are therefore topics that must be studied and monitored continuously. For this reason, those who choose highly technological, connected anti-theft systems, often connected with home automation and household appliances, must not only make a quality choice, turning to specialized firms, but invest in recursive maintenance, without forgetting that after installing a good alarm or video surveillance system it will be necessary to complete the home anti-intrusion plan with excellent security locks. Tradition and the laws of physics do not go away, and they never will.
