Signal blockers to prevent car thefts

Alert message sent 12/01/2018 19:31:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch

Hello NW member,
People who own cars with locks that depend on RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology are concerned about the risk of thieves using their own RFID boxes to steal their cars.

I thought it would be helpful for you to see this video from West Midlands Police showing two car thieves taking a car using a device available on the internet.

There are pouches, also available from the internet, which are meant for phones but they are signal blockers – you cannot unlock the car whilst pressing the fob when it is inside the pouch!
Here is an example (not an endorsement of these particular ones, but just an example):
