Tampering J-boxes

  1. Hi All,

    A question from the ever paranoid me:

    Is it possible/practical to tamper the cover on a standard 4" square
    J-box? If so, what would be used/what's the cost per box?

    I have to use something for the transition from the Magnapulls (with
    armored cables) to conduit and am also locating the shock sensors and
    DEOLs in there.

    Right now, I have a little bit of obscurity on my side as all of the
    boxes are above suspended ceilings and at least 10' off the ground,
    plus a little bit of false security (I put the same

    "WARNING! THIS PANEL IS ALARMED
    Opening panel or tampering with wiring
    will immediately notify University Police
    For access or service call <me> at Ext. <phone#>
    CLASSROOM TECHNOLOGY SERVICES"

    flourescent orange stickers that I put on the cans that really are
    alarmed/tampered as a deterent).

    I am about 98% positive that there's no way any of the folks who we're
    trying to secure this stuff from could walk off with anything without
    being detected (even if I were just using traditional EOL, between the
    general intelligence level & the physical security employed) I'd
    really like to be able to give my employer the extra 2% assurance.

    Thanks,

    I.

    You could wire some mini contacts in series with the Magnapulls. Put
    the contact on the inside of the 4 square box, the magnet on the
    cover.

    I'd just glue a microswitch in the box... one with the lever type action
    (they make a distinct clicking noise)

    Is it possible/practical to tamper the cover
    You could use a standard tamper sensor like the GRI TSC-20:

    You need to bend the bracket with a needle nose pliers a little to make it
    fit the edge of the junction box.
    Great attitude!
