Additional wall bracket protects against theft
If the manufacturer’s anti-theft measures are not enough for you, there is the possibility to provide more security with an additional case.
A 3D printed product is sold on ebay. The keypad is screwed into the wall using safety screws with a pin. A thief would therefore have to have a Torx Bit 20 with a pin hole.
