Wi-Fi Jammers and Unauthorised Surveillance

Criminals are increasingly using sophisticated technology to target victims. Staying aware of these trends is essential to ensuring your security, that of your family, and that of your property.

A particularly concerning development involves using Wi-Fi jammers to deactivate home security systems and mobile phones. These devices block the radio signals used for communication, posing a significant threat to home security by preventing real signals from getting through. There has been a spate of recent cases involving criminals targeting affluent homes. Their typical approach is to monitor the properties, and when they believe they are empty, they use Wi-Fi jammers to turn off security systems. By interfering with surveillance cameras and blocking mobile device signals, they can break into homes undetected, leaving no visual evidence.

In addition to home break-ins, experts have warned for some time of a surge in luxury vehicle thefts driven by cheap jamming devices. These jammers block GPS, mobile, and radio signals, making recovery difficult and allowing gangs to smuggle high-end cars out of Britain for sale in sanctioned countries.

To safeguard against such tactics, UK homeowners are advised to take the following steps:

-Use hardwired systems instead of relying solely on Wi-Fi, as they are less vulnerable to jamming.

-Inspect property, including bushes and garden ornaments, for unauthorised cameras that thieves might use to monitor your routines.

-Upgrade to dual-system cameras with Wi-Fi and hardwired capabilities to ensure functionality even if the Wi-Fi signal is jammed.

-Use advanced security systems with features that detect signal jamming attempts and alert homeowners to potential tampering.

-Stay connected with neighbours and community watch groups to share information and identify suspicious activities.

-Use smart home technology to create an occupied home’s appearance and send alerts when signals are interrupted.

Protect Yourself:

-Use two-factor authentication (2FA) to ensure that a second verification is required for access, even if your password is compromised.

-Use strong, unique passwords for all your accounts and devices and change them regularly.

-Keep your system up to date by regularly updating your security cameras and related software to protect against the latest vulnerabilities.

-Turn off remote access to your security system if it’s not needed, reducing the risk of hacking attempts.

As technology evolves, so do criminal methods. Homeowners must stay informed about new threats and proactively enhance their security. Combining traditional security practices with modern technology and community vigilance helps better protect properties and ensure safety
