Protect Wireless Car Entry And Starter Devices From High-Tech Theft
Prevalent in the recent news are articles about high-tech thieves using cloning devices to mimic a car’s key fob signals. Recent research, including a Swiss study, indicates that cars with “smart keys” can be unlocked and stolen in less than 3 minutes by intercepting the signal being emitted by the key fob.
Select-A-Shield™ Key Fob RF Isolation Pouches guard vehicles and other RFID chip devices against signal interception. Placing a wireless “smart” key in a Select-A-Shield RF Isolation Pouch prevents the device from sending Radio Frequency (RF) signals to the vehicle’s entry and ignition systems. Once the wireless device is blocked from sending signals, code grabbers cannot communicate with the device and gain the access codes and entry to the vehicle.
SELECT’s RF Isolation Key Fob Pouches are designed to prevent any wireless device from sending or receiving a signal, as well as securing device information. These small, flexible “Faraday cage” bags are increasingly being used by rental car companies, replacement remote key manufacturers and car owners to isolate wireless keys from RF access. With the rise in theft reports of keyless entry vehicles, this small, unpretentious pouch is a convenient, effective security deterrent against criminals.
New cars essentially are computers on wheels and as such they can be hacked. Prevent hacking, theft and tampering with Select-A-Shield Key Fob Pouches.
The Select-A-Shield RF Isolation Key Fob Pouches are available in three different sizes and two closure options. Select-A-Shield RF Isolation Pouches and bags are made of highly conductive metalized fabric which forms a “Faraday cage” for a wide range of RF and EMI (electro-magnetic interference) shielding applications.
SELECT-A-SHIELD KEY FOB POUCH ON THE JOB
Examples of current applications for Select-A-Shield Key Fob Pouches include:
• Securing smart keys in rental vehicles that are accessed through remote entry by the rental company.
• Isolation of electronic toll road passes or gas station drive-by swipe cards when not in use.
• Shielding credit/debit cards and passports with RFID chips from code grabbers.
