Infrastructure Security

I had been working in the Building Automation field before I retired in 3/2020. I got thinking about infrastructure security and protection. The majority of the home security systems today are internet based and mainly by cable or fiber. The old land line systems are far and few between.

So how easy is it to defeat your home security system as both the fiber and cable are exposed on the outside of your home.

So my next project will be putting the cable in a mini duct bank. Where it turns up into the house I will be building a SST box bolted with security screws to the outside of my house. The mini duct bank will be 3/4 SST piping and will only need about 10 feet.

Ok maybe too far but retirement has me finding stuff to do. I di recently help a friend install a ZWave system in his house. No monthly fees he owns everything .

Pretty sure some of the newer systems use a cell-phone SIM card so the system can send alerts via text messages. You'd need a UPS to be completely free of external connections.

Yes they do however, they can be easily defeated with a hand held cell jammer. There are approximately 38% of the homes in the US that have some type of security monitoring and less than .25% of them have cell monitoring typically the rich and famous.

If you have a need to protect against those who will go to the point of cutting power/phone lines or jamming cell service don't you have a different level of security needs than a typical home security or DIY security system are meant (or expected) to provide?

And most of them use wifi cameras which can be easily defeated.

Why do you think you would be targeted by an electronics genius thief as opposed to the standard run of the mill passer by burglar?
