If you have an alarm system that’s dependent on the decades-old reed switches like the one pictured below, you should know they can be easily defeated with a mere compass and a magnet. It’s pretty eye-opening…
Certainly a good reason to have two, three, or (depending the country you live in and your stance on self-defense) more layers of security in your building or home! 🙂
A good option for beefing up your security and preventing this type of physical breach is offered by Magnasphere. I was recently introduced to the Magnasphere wireless door/window security switches (MSS-RFS-100). It’s a great technology, especially if you have a need for a wireless security sensor configuration. They make standard security contacts as well. Either way, it’s worth a look-see if this is in your line of work.
“A business associate referred our company to Principle Logic when we were seeking a resource to perform vulnerability /penetration testing for our external and internal networks. We found Kevin Beaver to be professional, well informed, and easy to work with. His testing did not disrupt our networks, and his progress updates were timely.
His final report was very thorough and included security recommendations for our network environment. The executive leadership was so impressed with Kevin’s security expertise, they have extended their agreement to continue to perform periodic testing. We highly recommend Kevin Beaver and Principle Logic as a resource for network security testing.”
