I'd be more than happy to assist you. Anything wireless devices are more prone to hacking simply because of their very wireless nature. For example, a physical alarm would require tapping directly into the panel, a wireless unit means the hacker/burglar needn't gain physical access to the hardware, they could remotely hack it, then enter without you knowing.
Obviously security systems vary greatly, and various encryption and security measures are most likely in place to prevent such. However what you have to remember is if man can build it, man can reverse engineer it. All computers/electronics are able to be hacked. Why? Because a human built it, which means a human can take it apart. It's not a matter of whether something CAN be hacked but how easy it is to hack, the benefits of hacking it, and how easy it might be to cover tracks.
This is why every day in the news you hear of another credit card company, bank, corporation, government agency etc hacked. The idea is to be less of target, and put as many layers of security in place as possible in order to prevent an attack, for example enable any and all security options, and keep your system updated (usually online with the latest software) to prevent a security hole from being exploited.
What's the model of the wireless security system.
The signal goes to a wireless phone tower. The only evidence left was a
patch of dead grass in a 9in by 9inch square on my lawn. Is there some kind of device that could transfer the signal to the box and leave the house unprotected?
Hi, I’m a moderator for this topic. Your Professional has opted out and I wonder whether you’re still waiting for an answer.

Sometimes, finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected and we thank you greatly for your understanding. We’ll be in touch again shortly
Yes, I would still like to know how people got in my house without showing any signs of break in. It must have been pretty high tech to not even show up on the event buffer. If I am not here reply to my email, please. I realize this might take some time. However, if you cant help,
please refund my $48.
Please reply to my email and let me know what info you need.
I have to sign off now.
Thank you for your response. However, no one had our password, it was only in memory and not written down. We don't have a wired system either. Also, there is no history of anyone coming in or out on the event buffer. The alarm never went off, but yet someone robbed our home while we were gone. There is a 9 x 9 inch patch of dead grass outside on my lawn in front of the house which would be in line with where the wireless gps box is. Is there a device that can divert a signal from the tower to the box to make it look as if it is activated and then give access to an unprotected house? Is it possible if my phone was bugged by the wireless phone company and knew when we were not going to be here, someone from the tower that gives me phone service and monitors my alarm would be able to shut my signal off to give access and then put it back on when the criminals left? I have called the alarm monitoring company--our system tests a.o.k. Nothing shows on the event buffer except us leaving and coming home and an automatic communication test from our wireless receiver to the alarm company through the phone tower. I hope you can help, because as of now I can't leave my home and fear we are in danger.
Your answer still does not answer HOW someone got into my house. It seems this is more high tech than you realize. Since my whole house is covered with aluminum siding the metal theory doesn't work either.
Please refund my money to my credit card account. We are done.
Thank you for trying.
