ECM Jammer?
Could someone explain how the ECM Jammer works to me? I tried diving into the ghost class last night but the description on the ECM Jammer is kind of vague. For example, does it have a set range and time limit when you place it somewhere?

I feel like I may be missing something obvious here, but it's a bit confusing. Thanks!

The ECM jammer makes it so civillians and guards can't call the police and security cameras malfunction, although if you take down a guard and don't use his pager the alarm will still be triggered. It has a pretty wide range, but it's not unlimited, and I think it lasts about 30 seconds.

It does not seem to affect the "security" buttons in the bank heist for instance, but I may be wrong. I've not tried it since the Beta 1 update.

Lasts a bit longer than it takes to pick a lock. Allowing you to unlock the back door into the china store on Four Stores without being spotted by the camera in the building opposite.

+ does anyone know if it can override security doors so you can use an ecm jammer instead of a securiy card?

Asking because i see the ecm jammer icon above the security panel

There should be a Ghost perk for that... not sure if it's unlockable in beta.

If the ECM jammer icon is there, then yes. Not all security doors will have the icon though.

the ecm on doors requires a perk though I believe, which is about tier 5.

using the ECM on doors does require a tier 5 perk called "ECM Overdrive" and it has to be aced. Thus far, you cant unlock it in the current stage of the beta (You need to be at least level 36 from what ive figured out (You need to use 30 skill points to unlock tier 5, then 12 more to buy + ace the skill. You only get 36 skill points at level 30)
