Got a Response alarm and had it installed for the past 5+ years. Only changed the sensor batteries once I think in that time as they last ages.

Only issue I had is something in the area setting off the wireless tamper alarm and so had to disable that but otherwise worked fine. VERY loud when it goes off if ya near the siren.

Something in the area setting it off? Can you expand on that mate? Thanks in advance.

The only thing I dont like with these is that "undesireables" can also go and pick one up and test it for vulnerabilities. Not being snobish ('cos Im not!!) but I'd prefer a pro fit job where its less likely that the scroates will know what the system is.

Good deal tho for what it is, ta for sharing

Put a brick through the bell box and thats it disabled as you have no siren in doors or it isnt attached to a telephone line

I have fitted a few of these and also Yale one's as customers wanted the cheaper option. Far better going for a proffesional alarm kit. These can be had for £250 and are worth the extra $$ if you want to secure your property.

Where would you recommend I bought an alarm from MAS (Morton Alarms Systems) that was good. Move got a GSM wireless model from ebay that works ok with 7 PIRs and interal keypad, fobs etc...

Any places you'd recommend? For a no fees wireless model with GSM and PSTN (Phone) dial out? Also need video door entry but that can be separate.

I presume it was someones CB radio or a Taxi firm or something stupid. Never knew what.

Regarding the brick through the siren that would probably work on this one but the one I have has the internal control box/siren too which would sound as soon as the tamper triggered on the external siren box from being hit.

Thank you for that.

With regard the 'Brick'. I assumed this has an internal siren on the keypad (I could be wrong). But if it does, the the 'Brick' will knack the outside bell (as it would most alarm systems), but the internal siren would sense the tamper and sound.

Putting a brick through the siren seems an unlikely way to disable a system but someone we knew had their house burgled for the car keys and they did exactly that (except they used a hammer). Makes them pointless as the internal sounder is not loud enough to be an adequate deterent but what can you do. There are 4 houses on our street that have no alarm (one of them ours!!), one got burgled just after christmas!! Im now thinking ****, we NEED an alarm!! Been quoted £380 for a wired and £500 for a wireless (includes garage sensor) but I've looked on the web and the actual unit is around £150 and £200 respectively. Seems a lot just to fit a system, especially as the wireless just needs a few brackets fixing but I don't feel that its something I'd want to do (don't do ladders for as start!!!).

As I say frakison, if they knack the outside bell/siren it doesn't matter what system you have. Ultimately, if they want to get in, they'll get in. A big nasty house owner and/or dog are the best deterrents. My mate has a sign on his back door that reads something along the lines of:

If you break in to my house and/or cause any damage, I'll ******* rip you apart.
The house owner.


He ain't got a dog but he's not to be messed with. If someone breaks into my home and frightens my family, believe me, I ain't to be messed with!

This one doesn't have an internal siren so once the external was damaged you would have no siren. Saying that though if this is placed high up how easy is it really to not get noticed throwing bricks at one.

Also the alarm would no doubt sound before the batteries and electronics where damaged most likely.

Bottom line is if someone is that keen to break in they will break in. Alarms are just a deterate anyway. However I prefer having the internal sounder too as if sleeping I would hear that but probably not the external.
