Key Shield Faraday Bag by Disklabs - Relay Car Theft preventer

Insurance companies reticent to pay out on theft from vehicles where there has been no sign of ‘forced entry’


Vehicle theft is growing at an alarming rate and a significant contributor is the increase in the number of cars fitted with keyless entry systems. Tech-savvy thieves have discovered that these modern security features can be very easy to defeat.

Relay Theft’ is a technique adopted by criminals of using a receiver to pick up the signal from a key (which we all typically leave near the front door) and relay this signal back to a second unit adjacent to the vehicle, tricking it into thinking the key is in close proximity.

Not all thieves are necessarily wanting to steal a vehicle and there are growing instances of gangs focused solely on just removing valuables left in vehicles. This is a major new problem for owners as they have no evidence of forced entry which is usually one of the criteria to recover losses from an insurance company.

There is a lot of coverage in the media highlighting that insurance companies are becoming more reticent in paying out claims where there is no evidence of forced entry. A simple solution to prevent this problem occurring is to use a Disklabs Keyshield thereby eliminating the potential stress and frustration of losing valuables left in a car.
