After purchasing and fitting several high-end ‘smart’ alarms to cars, costing ~$5,000, it was discovered that two of the largest aftermarket alarm systems have critical security flaws that allow:

  • The car to be geo-located in real time
  • The car type and owner’s details to be identified
  • The alarm to be disabled
  • The car to be unlocked
  • The immobiliser to be enabled and disabled
  • In some cases, the car engine could be ‘killed’ whilst it was driving
  • One alarm brand allowed drivers to be ‘snooped’ on through a microphone
  • Depending on the alarm, it may also be possible to steal vehicles
