A downside to living in an advanced world is that there are even more opportunities for criminals to take advantage of. If you have been keeping an eye on the news recently, you will have noticed that criminals are becoming much more skilled when it comes to making off with your vehicle. National statistics have shown that amongst soaring levels of car theft, most of them are done without the use of a key.
What is relay theft in simple terms?
The way criminals do this is with the use of a relay box they have bought online. If you have a new car with a keyless entry system, the box will pick up on the signals your key is giving off in your house, sending it to a second box that will be right next to your car – which will open it, and start your engine.
How do I prevent this?
The most simple and cost-effective way to keep your vehicle safe is by purchasing a faraday bag. These bags are made with military grade, waterproof, metallic material that block absolutely any signals emitted from your car keys. On our website, you can find many faraday bags that range in different prices and sizes.
