How Your System Protects You in a Crash and Smash Break-In

If there’s a “crash and smash” break-in at your home – meaning, an intruder forcibly smashes your home security panel to keep it from working – can your system still protect you? If your system has crash and smash protection, it can.

With crash and smash protection, your system will still call for help even if a criminal has disabled the panel. Thanks to cloud security technology, incapacitating the traditional alarm signal does not prevent your system from calling the monitoring station. In fact, the signal is sent just as quickly and effectively.

How the Protection Works

If a criminal smashes your home security panel and you have crash and smash protection, here’s what happens:
  • Your system begins its 30-to-60 second countdown, just as it would otherwise.
  • The platform detects the system is offline, signifying it was likely disabled.
  • It responds by treating the event as a suspected crash and smash event.
  • The cloud security technology triggers a signal to the monitoring station.
Previously, this was the kind of advanced security technology that was only available to businesses. Now, homeowners can benefit from it as well.
