2 Krew Security Systems Common Master Code Class Action

Your security system is supposed to let in only those who have your code and keep everyone else out. But what if everyone who had the same system as yours also had your code? That’s what this class action alleges about the security systems of 2 Krew, Inc., which does business as 2 Krew Security & Surveillance.

The class for this action is all persons and entities in the US who bought security systems from 2 Krew.

According to the complaint, 2 Krew “is in the business of designing and installing intelligent systems tailored to new businesses, residential homes, and franchises, as well as industrial educational, municipal, state, and federal government agencies.” That could add up to a lot of properties protected by their systems.

Unfortunately, the complaint alleges, “The Systems were defective in design and manufacture, insofar that the ‘master code’ that turned off each System was common to all the Systems that [2 Krew] sold, and thus, any system sold by [2 Krew] was susceptible to a breach by any person or business with the same System.”

The complaint suggests that “there may be thousands of structures in Pennsylvania and throughout the United States” that have these defective security systems, enabling any one of those thousands of users to walk into any of the other thousands of other properties purportedly protected by those systems.

The complaint lists a number of counts, most of which are related to breaches of warranties.

  • Breach of implied warranty of merchantability and breach of implied warranty of fitness: This would mean that at the time the systems were designed, made, marketed and sold, 2 Krew knew of their defects and therefore should not have been selling them. The complaint claims that the systems are not fit for the purpose for which they’re sold, since a system to which thousands of other parties have the code will not keep out unauthorized people.
  • Breach of express warranty: The complaint argues that express warranties were created by the systems’ packaging, marketing, and materials. These claimed that the systems gave users “peace of mind knowing who has access to your property[,]” among other things.
  • Negligent misrepresentation: The complaint alleges that 2 Krew’s statements about the systems involved false or misleading representations about the systems.

The complaint asks for findings that the company has breached its warranties, for compensatory damages, for the costs of the suit and attorneys’ fees, and for pre- and post-judgment interest.
