FYI - Took 11 days after I ordered for it to come, but thats about normal for DX.

voted hot but does it work in the uk, info seems a bit obscure about power supply

You must NOT set this to dial 999, It is not allowed in the UK:roll:

It came with an adaptor to go into UK plug, you don't need to set it to 999 either you can put whatever number you want in, up to six different numbers.

The power pack is a standard fit too, you could get one from Maplins for £4.99 and you wouldn't need to run with the adaptor.

Looks good, may get one. Don't think 999 would be too happy about false alarms.

They wouldn't respond to the alarm no - they might well respond with a court summons or at least an £80 fixed penalty ticket a few days later though!

How many automated false alarms do you think the police would have to respond to? They now only respond to alarms monitored or reported by humans. And even these have to be prioritised they do not have unlimited resources

I'm quite tempted by this. I presume I would have to alert the landlord if I installed it?
Could this type/level of security system marginally reduce my insurance too?

I love dealextreme, but I really wouldn't intrust my home security to anything that comes from them - please remember people, you get what you pay for ;-)

There is also a lot of overpriced robbing [email protected] that charge a lot more for what this does, we have tested this system and it works great............for £25 you can't beat it, even of you don't trust it and its a back up system!

With my monitored alarm system that is linked up to the police and the one and only time it did go off they were here within 5 mins.

i don't get it. you're not allowed to have it to alert the police, so if it alerted you you wouldn't be able to phone the police yourself until you confirmed it was real. So you go to your house and either find everything gone so it was pointless anyway ,or, you get home in time to confront the burglar and get stabbed in the face.

The uk has wierd laws on this. I have a monitered alarm and before the police will come out they have to do 2 checks.

1 a 60 sec phone call
and also 2 parts of the alarm but go off (ie 1 pir and another door strip.

i have it and we had 2 false alarms in 3 years and once time we was out and the police come out and the other time i was at home.. the cops even did a person check on me and 2 cars and a van was here in seconds after it was sounded.

ppl are right that you cant set this alarm to ring the police, but the few times my alarm has set off and phoned me all i did was phone my neighbour to have a check on the house, this happened while i was at work so the phone caller built into these alarms can be a good idea if some common sense is used, i dont have this alarm i fitted a hard wire one and a add on phone caller which was well over £200 and that was for me to fit it.

So for 25 quid you are expecting a quality intruder alarm and police response.....

GET REAL!!!!!

On this one you really do get what you pay for.

is this thing of any use if I don't have a phone line in my home? (I just use cable DSL, and VoIP)

Does it actually sound an alarm or anything, or is it just a ET phone home type thing?

Seems great to me. Give you neighbours a key then if the alarm goes off it will call you then you can call your neighbour and get them to go in your house them when they are done you can reset it from your mobile.

Voted hot.

Are there any alarm systems with video recording as well in economical price range

I am after a wifi webcam that can detect motion record video + audio, send me an sms/call and i can remotely monitor the cam video feed.

what about this one … what about this one http://www.argos.co.uk/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?jspStoreDir=argos&catalogId=1500001001¶ms=adref%3DGarden%2C+DIY+and+leisure-%3ESecurity-%3EHome+safety+and+alarms&productId=1500151913&referredURL=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.argos.co.uk%2Fwebapp%2Fwcs%2Fstores%2Fservlet%2FProductDisplay%3FstoreId%3D10001%26catalogId%3D1500001001%26productId%3D1500151913%26langId%3D-1&cmpid=FG13P&keyword=GET+Wired+Alarm+System&langId=-1&engine=froogle&referrer=FG13P&storeId=10001£40 more but it has 4 pir sensors and isnt some dodgy chinese electric good



Thats wired this is wireless and if this one is not made in china I'll eat my hat!

isit worth buying then?

I've been eyeing this up for a bit but have been put off by the difficulty in buying extra sensors. I'd like two door sensors, one for front and one for back. Dealextreme seem to suggest you can buy them but then you read the posts on their forum and find nobody seems to have got any. One poster has found you can buy similar sensors on eBay and modify the crystal inside to make it operate on the right frequency.
It's only the lack of extra sensors that put me off. If anyone else is put off by the "you get what you pay for" aspect then I'll gladly buy one for them and sell it on to them for £149.99.

the bt vps 1000 is a better buy at @ 50 quid with 1 door sensor and 2 pirs and a remote fob ......has remote internet monitoring if its on the phone line.....rings,texts and emails for a fiver a month

cant see it at £50 any link

Well how about buy 2 units? So for a little over £50 you will have 2 door sensors and 2 motion sensors and 4 remotes and a spare main unit!

but the BT one will probably work properly and last longer?! the bt one is £170 on dabs

Well may be, but its lots more and the monitoring service is £5 a month and if you dont pay the phone, text email is not available.

Ps If you do want that one go via bt shop (still dabs) as more quidco.

dont buy off rip off BT!

They also sell the extra sensors and key fobs relatively cheap! Hope this helps someone.
As for this post if I didnt already have a system I'd give it a punt. Voted hot (assuming you dont get hit for import tax).

You can not only change the number but also set a second backup number (if your mobile is out of range for example). They also come with a free bt trial. The BT one is a much better deal and is made by Visonic which is quality kit.

With the BT one you can hook up a working outside bellbox and loads of extras like flood sensors.

I can highly recommned the BT VP 1000 system, I bought it about 18 months ago when it was on HUKD for about £40, I also picked up the addon pack from PC World for £20 when they were selling them off, its been very reliable and is a good deterrent as I have 2 external alarm boxes up now.

Its been very reliable, only had one false alarm when a living room motion sensor was trigged at night by a balloon that had floated in front of it ! I've set it off by mistake by wondering into rooms in the morning without disarming it, but that proves it works !!!

I used the 3 month trial of the BT alert system but didn't bother subscribing as the internal alarm is loud enough to scare a burglar off, I also wouldn't want to send a neighbour/relative to my home if it was being burgled !

I will have to look at setting the number to ring my mobile rather than the BT support centre.

outside bell box? got any more info on this?

Checkout ebay item 190225051429. They need mains power supply but connect to BT system wirelessly. Quite useful, probably need an electrician to fit it though.

You can also ring your house phone to activate monitor if you forget to set it when you leave home. Useful!
