What is Keyless Car Theft?

Car theft crisis – The number of keyless entry cars stolen on the rise, and Letterbox theft is becoming more and more common. Is your car at risk? If so, the Connected Essentials  Signal Blocking Key Box (Faraday key box) could be the answer.

What is Keyless Theft?

 

 

source: Evening Express

Keyless theft is a growing concern for motorists across the UK.

It is carried out with the help of relay boxes which emulates the signal from your car key. This provides thieves with access to your vehicle without forced entry. Your vehicle can be driven away as if the key was present.

For more information, visit BBC News.

 

 

What is Letterbox Theft?

A thief will use any opportunity open to him or her to steal a vehicle. One of the popular ways is for a criminal to use an

implement such as a fishing rod through a letterbox to hook keys. This is becoming an increasingly common method of stealing vehicles

as it is quiet, and does not damage the vehicle. Letterbox burglary is also a real threat, with 65 cars stolen in the Richmond area of London alone between January and October 2003.

Am I at risk?

A growing number of new cars are made with keyless entry systems that allow owners to open them with the brush of a hand, as long as their actual key is nearby.

New research by the consumer group Which? identifies that hundreds of popular cars – including four of the five best-selling models in the UK – are susceptible to keyless theft. (source: BBC News).

Thatcham Research assessed the vulnerability of cars to relay theft, identifying the Ford Mondeo, Hyundai Nexo, Kia ProCeed, Lexus UX, Porsche Macan, and Toyota Corolla Hybrid as some of the most vulnerable. (Source BBC News)

So, How Can I Protect My Vehicle?

First of all, take the standard security measures: ensure your car is fully locked, and keep keys away from doors and windows. This will minimise the chance of a thief being able to find the key and amplify it’s signal and is good practice for protecting your belongings generally. (Source: Autoexpress)

However, this will not fully stop keyless theft. Most vehicles are constantly emitting their signal, meaning your vehicle will always be at risk of theft.

As a result, We have developed our range of signal blocking car key stores to address this problem. All of our models allow you to store your keys securely, shielded within a protective signal blocking lining, which ensures that no radio signal can be picked up by external relays.

Additionally, the design of our products prevents theft through older physical methods such as through letterboxes.

To provide the highest level of security for day to day use, follow the guidelines below:

1. Make sure your vehicle keys are placed securely within the Signal Blocking Key Store. Then, ensure the inner lid is closed fully and the over flap is securely pulled into place.
2. Place your Key Store at the furthest practical point from your vehicle, and away from external walls.
3. Check the effectiveness of the Key Safe on a regular basis. Carry out the tests printed on the product packaging insert often.
4. Should your Key Store develop any damage or gaps in the closing flaps, its effectiveness may be diminished.

 

 

General Use Guide

Please take the time to read these product guidelines to help with protection of your vehicle from “keyless theft”.

Keyless entry is a modern convenience that drivers appreciate. Thieves, however, have adapted their methods and can sometimes exploit this feature, putting your vehicle at risk of theft.
Understanding how to use your Anti-Theft Key Safe is crucial to ensure effective protection of your vehicle. Please read and follow these guidelines carefully.

Your Anti-Theft Key Store uses the principle known as a Faraday cage to prevent, or reduce the strength of, radio signals reaching to and from your vehicle keys when they are securely placed inside. The design of keyless entry and start systems vary by manufacturer, but you can measure the effectiveness of your CEG-102 in shielding your keys by carrying out the following –
1. Place your keys inside your Anti-Theft Key Store with your vehicle locked.
2. Carefully close the lid and zip the case so no gaps are visible.
3. Hold your Anti-Theft Key Store in one hand whilst touching your vehicle door handle (or wherever normally provides keyless entry). The vehicle doors should NOT unlock. If they do, check that your keys are fully enclosed within the Key Safe and no gaps are visible. Radio Signals are like water, they will find and escape through the smallest gaps.
If you are not confident that your vehicle is protected, and it unlocks whilst the keys are securely enclosed within the Key Store, you can then measure by how much it reduces the effective range of your vehicle’s keyless entry system. To do this carry out the following –
1. Place your keys a small distance from the vehicle and take the usual action to activate the keyless entry system (for example touch the door handles) and confirm your vehicle unlocks. If not, move your keys closer until it does unlock.
2. Keep moving your keys further away in incremental steps from your vehicle until such a time that the keyless entry system consistently does not unlock your vehicle, and note the distance at which the system ceases to operate.
3. Try the same exercise again but place your keys securely within the Anti-Theft Key Store. This test allows you to gauge a measure of the effectiveness of its signal blocking properties.
To provide the highest level of security for day to day use, follow the guidelines below.
• Always make sure your vehicle keys are placed securely within the Anti-Theft Key Store, ensuring the lid is closed fully and secured with the latch.
• Place your Key Store at the furthest practical point from your vehicle, and away from external walls.
• Check the effectiveness of the Key Safe on a regular basis by carrying out the tests set out above.
• Should your Key Store develop any damage or gaps in the closing flaps, its effectiveness may be diminished.
