Can wireless systems be jammed?

I had pretty much settled on an ITI/GE Concord Ultra system with wireless sensors for our new home.

I do have one concern that I've not yet found answer to... are these systems succeptable to jamming?

If not, why not (configuration, etc)?

Clarfication - obviously they *can* be jammed... but can the system detect this and activate an alarm (for example).

Thanks.

I know that the receiver for the Networx system has a jam detect option, since these use the same transmitters as the ITI system, the option's probably built into the Concord as well. Which of the nested menus it's in, is a good question.

I'm looking in the book. looks like jam detect is always on. the only mention is in the phone module. options are report to central or not. I couldn't tell you if it generates an alarm or a trouble. says if no signals received from wireless sensor for two hours or a jammed codition this will be generated. from that i would gather it is just a trouble

Hmm... so isn't the whole thing rather pointless - jam it and then have 2 hours to take what you want? Or am I misinterpreting?

Well no I believe in a jamming type situation its not a lack of signal its a constant signal which the panel would react to immediately a complete loss of signal would take up to 2 hrs in a ul programmed system random if it isnt. up to 12 hrs i believe Ul tests equipment extesivly before allowing their label on it. Am I saying with 100% accuracy that it can't be done? No but I would not have any problem using it.
