3 Misunderstood Technology Threats To Residential Alarm Systems

Ask the majority of homeowners what they believe they should do to keep their home rightly protected and they will be quick to tell you a good alarm and security system is the answer. However true this may be, many homeowners don't have a lot of insight into the technological aspect of these systems. Therefore, there are some pretty common misunderstood technology threats that homeowners believe to be a real problem. Here is a look at some of the most misunderstood technology threats to home security systems and the real truths you should know. 

Misunderstood Threat: Your Own Wireless Network

People who have a wireless residential alarm system are often under the impression that the traffic on their own home internet network can interfere with the alarm's ability to perform and function as it should. After all, if the network is heavy laden with other traffic, where will the device find room on the network to communicate in an emergency? This is a common and easy-to-assume concern, but not one that has any merit at all. A wireless home security system is set up to operate independently of the rest of the network, usually with the use of a dual-network router. Plus, even though these systems are intended to be wireless, most do still have a hardwired setup that can be used for backup. 

Misunderstood Threat: Radio Frequencies

Radio frequency interference, usually called RF interference, is perhaps one of the most commonly referred to threats of the home security and alarm system. Radio frequency is not really a threat because the more modern security systems have encrypted signals that can't even interact with RF interference at all. Therefore, it wouldn't matter if someone was using RF communication near your home or trying to remotely operate your alarm system, they just wouldn't be able to cause any harm. 

Misunderstood Threat: Hackers 

You've probably even seen a scene or two in movies where an experienced tech-criminal hacks into a residential security system remotely to reconfigure its settings or even trigger a false alarm. The likelihood of this even happening is slim to none. The truth is, modern residential alarm systems and the security systems that keep them functional are highly secure. Often developed independently of one another even from the same system manufacturer, it would take some really long and trying work to hack into any modern-day system and do any good.
