Almost certain to create more security problems than it solves....

I was going to purchase this a couple of years back along with their camera
Then Found the camera only records for 30 seconds max each time

Cyber as opposed to physical...

save the money and put it towards a proper system installed by a pro. I've just had a Risco lightsys one installed and can't fault it. Yeah it's at a premium compared to this product but isn't your house worth it.

I guess there is still a place for this kind of product, especially if someone is renting etc. Also, most houses have no alarm whatsoever, is this not better that having nothing at all?

I've looked into these recently and believe they would be fine for a flat but wouldn't want to use it to protect my house. An alarm is primarily a visual deterrent, so if you do purchase one I would at least get a fake box to mount on the wall outside the property. I'm also not convinced how well cats & dogs would get on with this.

Personally I'm leaning towards a non 'smart system' that will phone on alarm, for example:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Yale-YEFKIT2-Easy-Telecommunication-Alarm/dp/B00B8UR6LM

A few additional pir/door contacts plus a few IP cameras should be more than enough.

I did my research, looks like it will work well with my cats. It has a perimeter setting so it won't register movement, just doors opening etc.

That Yale looks nice, but it's nearly twice the price ;-)

Thanks, I may need to take another look.

The price is hot either way :)

I have this and got a couple of extra camera's, works perfectly for me - only issue is if your internet goes down, so does your alarm system!

so to disable a 'smart' alarm system you just cut the phone line on the outside of the building before breaking in.......

I don't know what it is but sometimes whenever I see a big bright round yellow Yale alarm been mentioned that it just sort of screams right in your face like you can't not bloody see it + I find it looks damn bloody awful. I understand it's meant to be a visual deterrent & to protect your property but come on, do you really expect burglars to be blind as a bat going out scouting for targets or go out in the dark without a torch in hand. I think Yale needs to tone it down a bit on the colour or scale it down a bit.

Don't conventional alarms also use a phone line? Only this system doesn't require a monthly subscription ;-)

No, conventional alarms use an external 'alarm' to make a very loud noise. Monitored systems that use a phone line alert you when the phone line is down.

Depends if your phone line comes in via the wall or ducts. Plus, if you were that worried, get a router that also has a 4/3G backup.
