When I was looking at wireless alarms this was close to being my choice! At the time it was £160 and that was a great price. This is a steal (get it ;) ). Hot

Do you need to plug the control panel into a socket?

I do not have a socket anywhere near my front door.

From reading the blurb (install guide at the bottom of the screwfix listing) it seems that you plug the main box next to your phone extension and into a power socket.

The 6200 (the one i'm adding to) has a wireless keypad and needs no electric socket.

if you want the multi-zone functionality which the 6200 doesnt have you could also buy the remote fob, and never use the keypad.

I purchased this last year when it was about £100 as a screwfix deal, you are tied to where u can place the main panel, as most folks wont have a phone socket/ power supply close to the main entrance

However buying a wireless keypad sorts this out and makes the system pretty much silent on entering, making it difficult for intruders to find the main pad

I think I got mine for around £18 from another supplier online

can you add additional sensors, PIRS etc on to this or are you stuck eith what comes with it?

My advice is not to bother with these types of alarm as they are basically cheap rubbish. Buy a professionally fitted alarm system from a company who know what they are doing and are insurance approved. This will give you discount on your insurance usually and also will give you far less problems with your system and should the system go wrong you have a professional to go back to. These types of alarm really give alarm systems a bad name as they are poorly made and not maintained so eventually will fail and just go off all of the time or not at all when you need it the most.

Have been doing my research into these alarms as I need at least a 4 PIR system. However the general perception of a cheaper insurance is incorrect. There is hardly any difference unless you get those subscription based "monitored" alarms like from ADT etc. They would cost you a lot more than the professionally installed ones.

Was looking at Enforcer etc which would cost me 600 for professionally installed vs this kit + extra PIR, remote fobs etc which would come to around 200ish

Had another brand of wireless alarm installed over 6 years ago and can only describe it as almost faultless. Only ever had about three false alarms, down to a door sensor that was briefly playing up. Only other issue is having to change batteries every couple of years. Apart from that it's been great.
#16
be careful. look at the range distance. these sensors have to be in within certain distances of the cpanel to work.

Would you care to tell us what that other brand was? Such comments are only helpful when its not a guessing game :)

Each to their own, I Installed the baby brother version (HSA6200) of this 2 years ago and for ease of install (less than 2 hours) and simplicity in day to day use I've found it great, I'm now buying this set to add the house zoning capability and dial out notification. Its definitely not a £500 pro installed system but in my eyes it does what it says on the Box.

A agree with cbrpaul. Wired is always going to be the best when tagged with good equipment. Enforcer is the best wireless kit i have seen though and we use it at work with very few problems.

No , you don't need a socket near the front door , you have one that runs off batteries or you can buy a remote that switches it on , off
Then you put the main control near a phone line and socket , better out of sight anyway
#23
Great price for this. I have it installed centrally in my house under the stairs where there is a phone point and plug socket. I then have keypads which I have by the front and back doors. Compatible with the older kit, so if you already have a yale system should all still work. My alarms covers the rooms downstairs, plus my shed and outhouse.

It is an ESP Infinite alarm. Don't even know if the company is still going.

Interesting Comments. Have you actually owned one of these alarms ? Cheap rubbish is normally the phrase I reserve for something that doesn't actually do what its supposed to.

I have had mine installed for about 8 years now and have never had a false alarm. It lets me know when someone comes in or goes out of the house. If ever I forget to turn it off in the morning and walk past the PIR it instantly starts the alarm countdown, as it should do.

The batteries last ages. It dials my mobile and house phone if it is triggered, it was a doddle to install.

I have no complaints at all.
#26
Got this on my garage with the panel in the house so it has 0 entry time. Also fitted an extra alarm inside the garage which makes your ears bleed in such a small area (_;) use that idea at your own risk.

This guy obviously fits them for a living. I had many quotes from people like this and the cost was 3 times as much for a wired system. They'd also disapprove of wireless systems without giving a good reason for why they are so awful. The truth is that they'd lose a sale. Tough luck!

ditto. I purchased a couple of keyfobs and extra sensors. all really cheap. and it's a fully monitored system. can't go wrong.

I have been using the Friedland wireless system for about 3 years, and it has been perfect. The only thing is you need to keep an eye on the battery level on the sensors, otherwise a very reliable system. Personally I would not declare any alarm system to my insurance company, the discount is only small and it gives them another opportunity not to pay out if you forget not to the arm the system when you go out.

When our next door neighbour got burgled I wanted something that improved visually the security of my house. Police advice was that even dummy boxes make burgers think twice about entering a property and therefore look for easier targets. As our neighbour had been burgled whilst asleep upstairs I wanted something that would tell me if someone was in my house. A dummy box doesn't do that. And I didnt want to spend £600 quoted to me for a wired alarm. So I looked at dummy alarms. Firstly the imports of eBay which look great value but I did worry about false alarms. Therefore narrowed it down to this Yale and a friedland response init. Both around £160- 180 at the time I bought the response as it had a higher frequency and therefore less chance of interference.

There was a lot of don't by wireless posts to read but now 6 months in and installed working 2 hours I can say it's the best choice I made. Not 1 false alarm so far and yet goes off if I accidentally forget to turn it off and walk into certain pir's.

I think my point is yes a wired alarm probably is better quality and lasts longer, but buying a decent well know branded wireless alarm is in my experiance just as sufficient.


don't hesitate to buy one because of the wired alarms boys. If this is suitable for what you want it will do what it says on the box!
Hot price
#32
Good Price

These work well, do not seem to give any false alarms. As someone else said if you add the wireless keypad it makes it more secure. A pro thief could bypass it but if they are going to go that far they are probably going to get in anyway...
#33
Don't bother with wireless alarms, the batteries they use on remote sensors and expensive to replace and they are usually not very reliable as they are wireless and subject to interference.
It's not difficult to install a wired system. The main difficulty is routing the wires. If you can do this, then you can easily install a good reilable system for much less than the cost of the wireless alarm.
However, if you want an alarm to reduce your insurance, then (as others have said) it needs to be 'professionally' installed and maintained.

The batteries aren't expensive and what will interfere. I have a house full of wireless stuff and never have any problems.

I bought a BT Home monitor from the BT shop over 7 years ago. It's a wireless based system and it was £80 (on offer) when I bought it. It had an optional subscription where alarm would phone BT then BT send you an SMS or email. I got rid of the sub and the alarm just rings my phone if triggered.
£80 with next to no maintenance or problems (beside the odd battery change) has been money to me well spent.
My dads after a wireless system so I'll show him this. Hot

Just to add with none redcare or equivalent alarm it's very easy for someone to stop them dialling out prior to a break in.

Will a burglar really go to that much trouble to block a call etc etc if he can try next door which is alarm free ? I'd like to think not.

All it takes is cutting the incoming cable. Depends whether said burglar prefers your house or the neighbours.

To those who say "these systems are useless and get a professionally installed system"... rubbish."Professionally installed" systems are no better than these unless like someone previously mentioned, it is a monitored system. The only "professional" aspect is mounting all the necessary bits to the walls and connecting it up properly. If you have the equipment (ie. drill) and basic DIY skills, and know how to follow instructions, then the same as the professionally installed ones for 5x the price. Don't forget to think about where you want to place the sensors for maximum/effective coverage.
