For 5 bucks your car/motorhome is vulnerable.

My sisters car was stolen from my driveway last month by four young thugs (2 guys, 2 girls). Went on a joy ride, stole some small articles and wrecked the car. They've be apprehended, detained and now awaiting a hearing to face over a 100 charges. The frustrating thing about all this is that I heard the commotion outside my door and just thought it was my neighbours.

That's your car..I don't now if everyone's familiar with the "digital "life" package that you can get where you can "monitor" and unlock your home from your smart phone...don't sign up for this unless you have a great network that is secure as possible, and even then your at the mercy of your cell phones ability to encrypt the traffic coming from your device. I have read about hackers being able to login into these systems and once the system is compromised they have everything they need to watch when you leave your home and have the ability to turn off the alarm and unlock the door....


now that's is scarey

If you have (ANY) paperwork in your car to ID your Home location or GPS with Home /Recall and a Door remote,hope your vehicle is Not stolen! They will drive your car to your house and pull right in the garage! Youroo!!

Thanks for the article Herk!!

Sad fact is this is the new tomorrow. Now buying cheap is buying software that is untested or bug ridden and easily hacked.

Since the smartphone this has been a problem as people/companies rush to get stuff to the market.

It is time to get up to snuff with network/packet sniffers and learn how to use them and monitor your own stuff!

Kind of wonder, if the police observed this happening, how is it that they didn't arrest the perps, confiscate the device and have it analyzed?

Because there are no laws for unlocking someones car. Only for damaging it or entering it physically. The laws need to change to keep up with technology. It is kind a like catching someone with a pry bar and black gloves. If you cant prove they committed a crime with them nothing you can do.

Put your garage door opener receptacle circuit on a switch inside the garage, turn it off when you leave!
