  • So wouldn't the easiest way to solve this problem be to make another device (equally as cheap) that's installed deeper in the pump, which occasionally wakes up and scans for the known bluetooth device, and if found, sends the command to erase it, and disables the pump, and triggers some kind of alarm. If the thieves can use a $10 device to collect the data, there's no reason the gas station can't use something similar to defeat it. Seems that it would be a pretty cheap retrofit, and completely shut this nonsense down, at least until they change something. Of course just monitoring the opening of the pump, and disabling it if the opening wasn't authorized, as others have talked about, would also work, and not have to play the cat and mouse game everytime the skimmers get modified.

No public wish lists :(
