A South African Electrical Engineer has come up with an "alarm system" designed to go off when an attempt of signal jamming is detected.
The device is to be installed in parking lots and could potentially make it difficult for thieves to help themselves to people’s belongings.
CapeTalk’s John Maytham spoke to Craig Slater, Electrical Engineer about this device.

Some of my friends experienced this and I thought there must be some sort of solution— Craig Slater, Electrical Engineer
So I designed a device which basically just sets off the alarm when someone is trying to jamm a car nearby— Craig Slater, Electrical Engineer
It’s a very standard frequency that is used for all remote controls so you can pick up exactly the frequency band that’s been utilised at the time— Craig Slater, Electrical Engineer
If the alarm goes off, people should turn around and look at where the sound is coming from— Craig Slater, Electrical Engineer
