A property owner may disarm alarm upon return home so that the system does not sound alert. However, alarm disarming can also take place when an intruder hacks your security system by intercepting a radio signal sent between a sensor and a control panel. Modern smart home security systems often have a glitch that also enables burglars to steal passwords to the security system. This puts thousands of families at risk of a break-in.
To prevent alarm disarming, it is advised to install alarms with anti-jamming features. However, that does not always help as burglars can beat those countermeasures. Therefore, it is recommended that homeowners get commercial alarms which are less likely to be compromised than home security systems.
