I'd really recommend the Yale wireless alarm system - Wilkos have the HSA 6200 (I think) for £100. You get two PIRs and two door contacts. I've no idea about the Response brand, but the Yale systems are great - alarms can be set in zones, with sensors operating as entry (delay before alarm) or instant alarm mode. Battery life is great and they are reliable (no false alarms at 3am).

i've been waiting for a yale system to pop up at the right price for a while.
do you know if the HSA6200 from Wilko's has a siren in the keypad? I'd like to hear if the alarm went off whilst I'm in bed, but a lot of these cheaper systems only have the external siren.
#6
my HSA6200 is good but switching it on/off using the keypad doesn't always work and it needs a repeated press as the signal obviously doesn't get to the unit. It's new and only about 10m away, but there are three walls directly behind it...
#7
I dont want to sound negative but. If you can wire a plug and have a bit of time get a wired one. They are not difficult to fit and the right one is reliable allowing you to set the zone types etc. Having said that it is a good price but my experience of wireless alarms has not been good. Will add heat based on what you get for your money.
#8
It's not the wiring itself that is difficult for anyone it is routing and hiding the cables that is the problem especially between floors (and siren if necessary). So these have a role and have been improved dramatically over the last few years.

Yep hear what you are saying. There is a market for these items i agree. I purchased a couple of wireless ones from tesco a while ago and they were useless. Perhaps these are better.
#10
I've been really impressed with my wireless Yale system (3800). The whole house was just re plastered so running wires up and down three floors isn't a possibility. I don't think the 6200 has a siren in the keypad, but you could pick up an extra external siren for maybe 15 pounds on ebay and put it under the stairs maybe.

I put one on my budgie and no ones stolen it yet...... so your rottweiler should be fine!

If this is the same as the one they were selling for a similar price at B&Q a few months ago, I'd stay clear. They are pretty cheap and nasty and I've not even used mine, lots of problems getting the alarm to disarm/etc. Also the tech support feels like a blokes mobile who's only suggestion is to check the batteries.
#14
My parents went on holiday to Austrailia for 3 months. One week into their trip their house was burgled. I sorted it all out and bought a Response wireless alarm (older model to this deal) and fitted it for them while they were away. Really easy to install and works like a dream. It's been running for five years now and the rechargeable external alarm battery is still going strong. Very good kit from my experience.

The old versions of Response wireless alarms were easy to bypass.

I presume the newer versions have improved and got rid of the flaw that was in the old systems.

Easy or not, why would they bother?
Who responds to alarms anyway.

That happens usually when it has been blaring for hours

Great point. My Yale HSA 3800 has an internal siren which is loud enough to make your ears hurt - that'd scare a lot of people off. Also, if I was broken into at night when I was asleep upstairs, me and my baseball bat would do a pretty impressive job at preventing anything being stolen.

On top of that, when I'm not at home the alarm phones me and lets me know it has been triggered. I can then check my webcam to see if I have an intruder (using an app on my phone). If I do, I can call the police (and I have the images recorded as evidence should it be needed)

Most of all though, I have two big yellow sirens around the outside of my house, and stickers on most windows/doors saying I have an alarm. Any burglar in his/her right mind is going to think its not worth the hassle and move on to the next house. The point is, you don't have to make your house impossible to break into, you just have to make it harder than the neighbours.

Yes, Without more special features alarms are a waste of space.
With my last two houses, I went to a lot of bother to wire them up, but didn't bother when I moved to my present place - experience of the odd false alarm proved to me that I could have emptied the house and used it as a cannabis plantation in the time it takes neighbours to notice, so unless you can monitor it, as you suggest, you might as well not bother.

Paid for monitored alarms are so expensive, you would probably be better off just leaving the door open and post up an invite to be robbed, as it might work out cheaper! ;-)

Alarm should only go off if it picks up magnetic contacts or sensors are open. I have had mine for years and it never false alarms. even if it did i would know what caused the false alarm. Proper panels allow the bell to be silenced after a pre set time and you can even set how many times it re arms. Crap ones wont allow this. Its worth buying the correct one other wise its a waste of time even fitting one.

Everyone gets false alarms..... guaranteed, it's easy to set it off yourself, even if the system is in perfect order!
Never seen a panel that doesn't cut off after a set time, (usually at least partly configurable) but regardless, no-one so much as twitches a curtain whatever the reason until it has gone on long enough to be a nuisance!

My favourite reason for setting it of, (albeit rarely, as it gives quite a shock) was going into a zone alarmed overnight after getting up extra early, and being half asleep having forgetting to turn the whole system off.
#22
Right got around that one, have done it myself so have set my zones as entry exit. Now if i forget to turn it off, when i walk into the room it starts counting down. It is easy done but as soon as you hear the beeping you know alarm is on and just de activate it

I do the same - the downstairs is set over night, and the bottom of the stairs is on 10s delay giving me time to turn it off if I forget.

I had a faulty door sensor for a while which was giving me false alarms, but since I swapped that over, I've not had one (in several months). I use the alarm daily, so I'd say that makes it pretty reliable.

Regarding the usefulness of having an alarm at all, the main benefit is that it is a deterrent. Burglars are mostly opportunistic, and so an alarm will usually be enough to get them to walk on to the next house. Saying that, I think if my external sirens went off at 3am, it would definately be enough for the neighbours to look out their windows to see what was going on!

Fully agree, night time is were i am most happy my alarm works. No worries if someone gets in i will be woken by my alarm. Not sure what i would do though but hopefully the burglar would not try and would go next door without an active alarm.
