During this level we are constantly going to check whether we can disable the alarm systems we create by merely cutting the power or switching the sensor off. You have often seen in movies how robbers try to “stop the guards” by cutting the power or destroying the control panel. Even more often they just cut the wire which controls the sensor.

Every time you come across the next task, try activating the system by simply removing the sensor cable. If the system is activated and the alarm goes off, it is well protected. However, if disconnecting the cable allows you to steal the protected object, then you should make the system better.

In addition, discuss with your teacher and classmates why the system sounds or does not sound the alarm when the cable is disconnected.
