When an Intruder Smashes Your Panel


If an intruder breaks into your house and smashes the security panel to disable it, can your system still defend your home? If your system has crash and smash protection, the answer is yes. Let’s look at what this type of break-in is, and how the crash and smash protection we offer can outwit criminals who attempt it.

Defining Crash and Smash Break-Ins

A crash and smash break-in is when an intruder breaks in and destroys the security panel in order to prevent the system from signaling for help. When perpetrating this type of attack, the intruder’s goal is to take advantage of the system’s time delay. This 30 to 60 second delay is what gives the homeowner time to disarm the system before the alarm sounds or the emergency signal is triggered. But in a crash and smash attack, the criminal eradicates the panel and its capabilities.

How Crash and Smash Protection Helps

When you have crash and smash protection in your home security system, it will signal for help no matter what has happened to the panel. It uses cloud security technology to send a signal to the central station, which works just as quickly as a traditional cellular signal. As the homeowner, you’ll receive a text alert about what is taking place and the criminal will remain in the dark until the police arrive. Crash and smash protection outsmarts and overpowers criminals, which is what every homeowner deserves.
