Be aware. If you only have a North facing wall to mount the siren on the solar panel won't get enough sunlight during the winter to keep a charge.

Yeah, cos the extra hassle of cutting a cable really stops them doing that to a normal wired system...

People ignore house alarms, & police don't respond, so they're only really good for peace of mind against night time burglaries. As long as you know that there should be no issue.

I actually have one of these systems which I fitted 4 years ago and only need to change the 9V batteries in the sensors each year and the CR2032 batteries in the door sensors/window sensors every 2 years. They are every bit as good as their wired counterparts and have never falsely triggered. The bell box is mounted high up so would need a ladder to get to. Any removal of the bell box/panel control/sensors will immediately trigger the siren and as it's solar charged there is no wire to snip to silence it. We have remote fobs just as you have for a car to arm/disarm the system (it chirps in confirmation when it is set and unset) and never bother with the panel box (except when the batteries have drained from our fobs or backup). The buttons on the panel box are rubberised rubbish and you must really push them, resulting in you dislodging the control panel from the holder and triggering the alarm !

Why do people who don't actually own/use/have experience of anything always knock it down ? I paid double the price for this system from B&Q and as my house was newly built I didn't want a fitter knocking holes all around my house just to fit a wired system. I live in a 3 storey and wanted the assurance of sensors on each level. I fitted the whole system in under an hour and the hardest part was drilling a hole in the brickwork to mount the alarm box on the outside, the internal sensors clip onto a back plate which is secured by 2 screws on the wall. The door/window sensors stick on to the frame with a double sided sticky pad. You can add components as and when you like by pairing them to the alarm box which is easy enough to do. I am more than happy with it and my efforts but do bear in mind that the alarm box is powered by a solar panel and North facing houses may not get enough sun to charge the box (or you can mount the box at the back of your house and for effect, you can get a dummy box for the front). My house is SE facing so never had a problem of battery being drained.

I have this system and totally agree with the above comments. I have my box on an East facing wall, no issues at all.

Possibly, but the alarm box has an anti tamper device. Take it off the wall without de-activating it (even if you have not set the alarm) and it will wake the street.

All elements of the system (keypad, PIR's and magnetic door contactors) have anti-tamper devices. Open them or try to take them off the wall and the system activates.

I have the old model and you need to change the lead acid battery inside every 3-5 years (as all batteries even recharge types die). I have it on an East facing wall and so that maybe shortening the life cycle. The sensors need batteries as and when they need it (as they are non rechargeable).

PS. Not slamming you SeanU. Its a fair question.

I didnt knock these, but they are arent as good as a wired system. and snipping the cable to the bell wont silence it. you'd know that if you knew what you were talking about. if you go to almost any alarm installer/ electricians house, the vast majority of them will have a wired alarm
theres a good reason for that, and these are the people who know what theyre talking about.

I appreciate that as somebody who fits alarms for a living that you would go for what you know - have you ever actually fitted/used one of these though ? The only real difference is that the alarms you fit are wired and supplied though the mains and this one uses batteries which have to be replaced thus the ones you fit don't really require any maintenance that's about the only real difference (radio interference doesn't even come into the equation as it uses a different signal to the overcrowded bands used in everything else) .

Actually I do know what I'm talking about and I believe you are referring to the battery back up in the bell box of the wired system - correct ? I have had both types fitted to my homes and as somebody who has had wired systems before, they can be a pain in the butt for the layman as when (not if) either the bell box or control panel has gone (or rusted through like my previous 2 alarms ! The bellbox in this one is weatherproof plastic and looks as new as the day I bought it) then you find yourself having to find a tradesman who then will probably find it hard to find replacement parts and who will then sell you a new one. This system is modular in design so you can add/remove/replace individual parts without having to need a degree in Electonic Engineering to do so or pay silly money for somebody to diagnose and rectify the problem. I have had this system for 4.5 years now and nothing has gone wrong, ok I've gone through a few batteries (but I use higher ampage rechargeable ones anyway) and the bother of going round changing them has become as routine as checking batteries in a smoke detector (though coincidentally my smoke detectors are mains powered so don't need to do that !)

Why do I get the feeling that everybody in HUKD is a resident expert and at each discussion begins with - I am a qualified .... You don't know what you're talking about ... and I do because I am a ... The fact is you don't know who I am, what I do or what I know - I certainly don't have to prove myself to anybody but let's say I am qualified to give an opinion on this as I:-

I never said this was a poor alarm. just that it isnt as good as a wired alarm. stop being so defensive. I even said it was a good price. you will find that most bell boxes are made of weather proof plastic these days. for the record, I have fitted wireless alarms before. there are people who wont/cant do this themselves. and if you choose to believe yhat these are as good as a wired alarm, of course thats fine. but like I said, electricians, alarm professionals, businesses will all fit wired in their own properties. make of that what you like.

Sorry but can't help being defensive when somebody comes back to you with "you'd know that if you knew what you were talking about" and also as each post I have posted on somebody knocks it and usually they don't even have the product/tested it for themselves ! You say it isn't as good as a wired alarm - how so ? At least explain your reasons for this otherwise it's like saying your Audi isn't as good as my BMW ... Ignoring the price, this is a good system for people who don't want to have to redecorate their property after having a wired system installed or for those who actually want the satisfaction of doing something themselves without the expense of having to get somebody to fit it for them. For the record a lot of tradesmen/white van men drive Ford Transits but that doesn't make them Lewis Hamilton (or good drivers for that matter nor does it make the Ford Transit the best White van you can get)

Edited by: "dragonxpress" 13th Jan 2015

I just commented that these werent as good as wired, and you wrote a huge reply about 'people who dont know what they're talking about slagging off your alarm'. I have, and always will have wired because
a. reliability
I have over £10000 worth of electrical equipment, jewellery, mountain bikes and tools at my home. do I really want it protected by batteries and a tiny solar panel?
b. it has been proven that even the wireless alarms with anti jamming measures can be jammed pretty easily.
for a few hundred extra I would rather have that extra peace of mind.
now I appreciate that this system suited your needs at that time, and you are very happy with it. that is fair enough. its an excellent deterrent for under £70. but you are telling people that this is as good as a wired system, which simply isnt true.

ps
imo, the ford transit IS the best white van you can get :-)

Bought one 10 years ago at Ideal homes exhibition when it was response alarms. No problems in all that time. Spares available at Wicks. Just look after/replace batteries.

One of my neighbours has a wired alarm system, each time we get a power cut, or even a slight mains surge, ( which is quite often ). it goes off, and then blasts away for about 20 minutes.

Result, annoyed neighbours who just try to ignore it, nobody ever calls the police.

Just found the receipt. Special exhibition price £250. At that time we thought it was a good product, expensive, but very innovative, we bought it. It's proved good. Now must be tech. improved, but good luck to the original producers. Think there are rich now.

Your neighbour needs to get there alarm serviced and a new battery in the panel then it will be fine during power cuts.

I'd would be very wary of telling your insurers that you have an alarm fitted in the hope of lower premiums if you have one of these, don't think it will meet their criteria and you may end up with your claim being refused. Plus you will probably only save about £30 off your premium.

120 GBP?

Expired?

Could this be fitted to a garage door with the solar on the roof?
