EXPIRED- Yale Premium Alarm (+ EXTRAS) - IronmongeryDirect - £120 (ish)

61
Found 3rd Jan 2014
OK - so the easy to install and positively reviewed Yale Premium Alarm normally sells for about £160

IronmongeryDirect are selling it for £132.50 (ex VAT!!) which converts to around £160 with VAT. Use code FPA2 for £20 off £100 spend (the spend is ex VAT) which brings it down to £135.

OR - Add another 20 odd quid worth of stuff to take your total ex VAT price to £150, then use code FPA5 to knock £50 off. I added a Yale PIR sensor and a pack of 10 screws to get just over £150 before VAT. Total price for Yale Premium kit + an EXTRA PIR sensor + some screws = £120 delivered.

PLEASE NOTE! The email receipt you get sent DOES NOT include the discount !! (This has been noted before by users commenting on the codes in the voucher section on this site) I can confirm it DID NOT show my discount, but the dispatch email that I received 10 hours later had my invoice attached to the email that DID show the discount.
If there are any issues, they do Free Returns giving peace of mind.

Another point worth noting - after fiddling around earlier on their website, I noticed the price of the Yale Premium Alarm jumped up to £160 ish (EX VAT!!) If this happens, clear out your cookies or use a different browser and try again. The price will go back down. Also worth doing this when you are looking at different prices for flights just for info - prices can go up if you keep checking the same flights.....naughty websites!! :O)

ooh nice discount

Great alarm system! I really rate these.

Great deal but I have difficulty believing that flight thing is anything but an urban legend. Many people claim that it happens yet not once has anyone been able to prove it. It's never happened to me (and I spend hours every week pricing flights!) and I've not been able to replicate it by copying someone who claims it affected them.

I think the more mundane explanation of someone else either buying or reserving (by starting the checkout process) the last seat available at that price is far more likely. People think it's unlikely that someone will be looking at the same flight as them at that very moment, but I've looked at flights on Easyjet where there have been 400+ people looking at the same route. Odds are one of those people was looking at the same date range as me.

Thanks callum9999 - It's happened to me once before - but I can't remember which website I was booking on.....
Certainly hasn't happened over the last few weeks whilst I've been holiday flight hunting....thought it was worth a mention as
I was certainly surprised when the price jumped with IronmongeryDirect earlier....

Great alarm system? I'm in the trade, and believe me, these are one of the easiest, error prone intruder alarms out there, so much so that I'd rather fit a Texecom than this- and that's saying something!

Be interesting to see how I get on then I guess! Out of all the reviews I've read (believe me - I've read a lot on this kit) most issues appear to be people who can't install it properly.....

I guess I'll have to suck it and see.....if there are problems with it, it will be going back - be interesting to know what sort of problems you're aware of though.....Thanks

No worries. Flight prices are highly dynamic and regularly change - it's not surprising people jump to conclusions about why they're changing (particularly as most people seem to think big companies do all they possibly can to scam them!).

It's weird it happened to this alarm though! Maybe that was a coincidence as well or an error occurred. I'd imagine alarm prices are rather static and don't jump around anywhere near as much as flight prices.

Evening all....anybody used the remote control for this kit? A nice to have??

Evening All....has anybody used the wireless key fob with this piece of kit. A nice to have!? Cheers.

thats what i ordered with the system i think you have to go for the £25.00 one though

Thanks JVB!! I had an old system with one and was really handy. It's £18.99 for anybody interested on Amazon. Ideal to take you over the £150 though if purchased with the alarm.

I've had this set for a year now and never gave false alarms. Occasionally test the alarm by triggering it myself and it works a treat. Rings me and the OH too. Would recommend for sure

Ordered. Thanks jonnyclewlow for posting!!

I have had the system fitted along with 7 additional pirs/contacts to my property for 3 years & not once has the alarm sounded in error.

This is in my opinion a great system for the price, have some heat.:)

I got the telecommunications one for £224 from home base plus 20% off = £179.99 I paid.
its seems easy to fit and takes 3 steps all ready set it says.
the remote is £15 from home base and screwfix

how much is the remote here I can't see any ?

What's the difference between the "premium" and "telecommunications" systems besides the touchpad?

Sofiasar....25 pound on here for the fob. It's under the associated items when the alarm is selected. Bottom of page.

The touch pad is the only difference, the Telecommunicating Alarm supercedes the Premium Alarm. Also now using the latest 868Mhz technology.

don't know it's says its already set up. I bought mine on boxing day
so a touch pad and already set up pir and I can switch on/off from dial phone etc .
it still has a dummy one too

can anyone recommend the difference on these remotes. which is better £15 or £25. as they both seem to so the job same

We have the Touch screen model, think it's the next one up from this and we use it every day

The remote is actually a brilliant idea because you can set the alarm in 'HOME' mode when your lying in bed and activate it. You then hear three chirps and it's armed. Home mode is used to arm only the bottom or an area you know you won't go at night but still needs protected One good feature is if it goes off our one calls a few different numbers

Or you can lock your door going out for the day or evening and activate/deactivate at a touch of a button. Sometimes it's better doing it this way because when you open your front door on your return you won't hear the countdown chirps till the Alarm goes off, and depending on how much delay you have set yours at, it can be a "quick get that thing to shut up" episode lol

We think this is a brilliant system and would highly recommend it, don't listen to the haters they know nothing. We've had no false alarms and we've been here 6 months now, only time I'll think about doing anything to the Alarm now is either adding another PIR sensor which I think ill do this weekend and renewing the batteries.

Just having the Yale round yellow boxes on the front and back walls are a big no no for burglars, I've been burgled before and I would happily say that as long as I've set my Alarm for the day\night I'll know the system will distract.

I've accidentally had the alarm on also and don't let that small yellow box fool you lol it's LOUD and ear piercing

If anyone has any questions etc then please fire them on this thread and I'll be happy to help

This is the remote you want for the Telecommunicating Alarm. The one listed for £25 is for the HSA 6000 series alarms.

homebase.co.uk/web…433.

Ordered, Thanks OP

Bought from Screwfix last week still in the box paid £159 for unit and another 120 for additional accessories!! Screwfix one will be returned tomorrow!! Thanks OP for massive saving

Fantastic kit, would highly recommend. All parts still working for me without a battery change for almost 3 years. Never gone off in error. Just make sure you configure each sensor on how to respond to home mode.

saxo-appeal thanks for information
mines getting fixed today whether permitting. iv got someone to put the alarms out for me £15 lol. but I have to fix the pir.
don't know but the £25 remote is ooos in local homebase so I will have to get one from scerwfix then. I heard that the remote can also be a panic alarm too sounds cool

a quick question.... because this one connects to house phone and rings you, I will be adding 3 mobile numbers, will I get charged by the phone company??

Having a key fob is great thing. When you lose house keys, the thief can disarm the alarm so you or your neighbours won't get annoyed with alarm sound. Clever.

I have this alarm and I bought THIS.

The wire free keypad (above) is good as the keypad slides out of the mount so you can take it round the house with you if need be.

Had this alarm installed two weeks now and not had a single problem, take your time putting it in, watch the DVD and read the instructions properly and neither will you!

Don't know how you work that one out, I can only save £20 (decent but not massive). I too got the same deal at screwfix but some of the individual items were much cheaper that ironmongery has.

One thing yes the Fob can act as a panic alarm also, you have to hold down one of the buttons for 5 seconds BUT if you have kids please have it somewhere you know it will be but away from little fingers we have a 3 year old and she managed to get our fob which was on our bedside cabinet....luckily she only held down the set deactivate button haha

The other thing was if you get charged if it calls out, which I think is a yes. It I'll find out....to be fair though what's the cost of a phone call and you losing precious photos of loved ones etc etc

I have just found little glitch during checkout which will give you additional 10 pounds off your order, after applying code for 50 pounds off from your order (if value of your basket exceed 150 pounds) which is FPA5; press make payment, press backspace on your keyboard or back in browser, go through delivery options again and on next screen apply same discount code as before, your order will be reduced by further 10 quid showing VAT reduced by that amount on summary screen, as someone mentioned this before - I still have received confirmation without discounts applied but when I receive second one - I will confirm if that 10 pounds have been deducted from my order.

Here is how I worked out. For example my order from Ironmongery consist of Unit+Extra PIR +Screws total value is £120.25 If you take same item from Screwfix value would be £177.78 which saves you £56.53 and >30% savings!! You may be correct additional accessories are cheaper from Screwfix but for unit and 1 PIR no brainer saving more than £50!!!

I suggest putting the same products in a new basket, add the voucher and take a screen shot. Email this to them asking why the discount hasn't come off. Either get them to amend it or worst case scenario if the order has been dispatched return it for free and put a new order in. Hassle I know....it's a pain it didn't work.
