I have used them, goes with the territory, to condemn them for the purpose they were being used for.
My expertise your calling into question is over 30 years in the security industry watching it evolve, assisting developers with beta testing and watching early RF systems come along. Seen the drawbacks and assisted along with colleagues to have the graded kit where it is now.
I have fitted more systems and worked on many varied ones than you could imagine and still consult when required. So on that basis alone I know a little bit more than you do. And that is being generous.
Your answer has not even commented on the quote from the manual about "sleep" times.
Are you saying Yale print off thousands of these knowing they are wrong?
Are you saving that a RF detector does not go to sleep after its activation? If so how does one last so long ( Battery wise) in a busy environment?
Even graded systems have a sleep period, but with ~TWO WAY comms. The big difference you also seem to miss.
You again avoid the technical aspects and give your "assumptions".
If the system is jammed and a detector is activated it will in the case of the Yale "go to sleep" and whilst in this mode if disturbed every 40 seconds would not activate. BUT BY THIS TIME IT COULD BE COVERED AS IT HAS NO ANTI MASK FACILITY. SO WOULD BE NOW AS USEFUL AS A CHOCOLATE KETTLE.
So in that case if someone had the inclination and wanted something from a certain room this could easily achieved.
Then again I would hope someone with anything worth this effort to be stolen would have had a competent risk assessment done in the first place and discounted the Yale. Even the insurers would.
You really should be more aware of what you work with and pertain to be an "expert" with.
You can also "front end overload" any RF device
