Electric Vehicle Keyless Entry Security – Toolbox Talk

Many electric vehicles (EVs) are priced at a premium due to the manufacturing costs being higher than traditional vehicles. They have keyless entry as standard which enables drivers to unlock their vehicle without needing to press any buttons on the fob, as long as the fob is within range of your vehicle it will open.

Thieves are increasingly looking for ways to exploit keyless entry and steal vehicles. The Police report that it takes less than two minutes for a car to be stolen. In 2019 a vehicle was stolen every five minutes in the UK with most of these thefts by keyless entry
