I would say pay the extra for the tele-communicating model.
Notice that some of these ones are on a single frequency so can easily be interfered with by a device that costs about £10.

How much extra and any suggestions/model?
also check that its 'all wireless'. I bought one a few years back and the keypad had to be hardwired to the alarm box.
you can set the alarm to sound if it detects any interference
to be fair this is a good deal, i think pir and door sensor go for around 20 quid each ...

Why are you posting links for the same item at a higher price? Surely the point of a deal is finding the best price???
FWIW I have one of these. Dead easy to install and use. It is completely wireless, the only thing is the additional Door Sensors and Window sensors are quite expensive on their own.

In reality though, an opportunist thief isn't going armed with this kit
this any good as a shed alarm?

Why would it not be, just make sure the alarm box is up out of reach and not hanging on the shed lol..
This is a great piece of kit. Installed 5 years ago, still working. Make sure to do a test of the door and window contacts every 6 months or so, as the batteries do run out after like a few years and need replacing.

I can only think of 2 false alarms during the 5 years, so this won't disturb you in the middle of the night randomly.

Not the most sophisticated system and I'm sure James Bond will be able to get through, but a good enough deterrent and does the job for simple break-ins.

I think the wireless aspect is for the PIR sensors and sirens etc. I think to have the alarm call you it is hardwored to the phone line.

Maybe they have brought out something new though?

Burglar alarms these days are next to useless, very few people pay any attention to them. You are much better using the money to get a CCTV system installed and putting a couple of notices up.

I believe these cheaper systems only have 1 way wireless so the control panel does not know the status of the sensors, it cannot send out a request to see if they are open/closed. Why does this matter? Say you go out and leave a door/window open the panel has no knowledge of this and will arm the system, say the door then blows shut it will then register a change of status, then if it blows open again the alarm will go off.

Proper systems will poll each sensor when you set the alarm and if something is amiss it will refuse to set with an error like "you forgot to shut the backdoor you daft eejit!"

Yale systems are also notorious for having flakey wireless, the panels report countless false positives of "wireless jamming detected", can you guess Yale's solution to this problem in the manual? Turn off the anti-jamming system.

I'm not slamming this, anything is better than nothing but beware this is very much at the Fisher Price end of the market. Basically a toy sold with good marketing and a "good" name, properly designed and certified systems aren't much more. Try a Scantronic or something.

This is nonsense.

No burglar will hang around with a whaling siren. And they will walk on by to find a house without an alarm and the associated hassle.

​I have, she's called the wife!
Just to add my experience with similar, once you've mounted it all in place, be prepared for the regular ritual of battery changes. And that includes the bell box too. I have to do this on my parents system about two or three times a year. Or you could mount the bell box so you don't need a ladder....but the burglar will just disable the trip switch and dump it in a wheely-bin somewhere.

Plus....be prepared (if you haven't had any kind of wireless alarm before), for the false alerts, usually when the battery runs low on a contact sensor.

I do have a wireless alarm as it happens, but the control box is mains wired (batt backup), and the bell box uses solar to maintain the battery. Works for me, no wires and I only have to change the sensor batteries every six months.

Im not dissing the deal and I voted it hot, this is definitely better than nothing , and a great price too, but wanted to give some reality tips!

Good luck

Also, the better wireless systems have anti-jam built in, someone messes with the dignsls, alarm goes off anyway.
good deal, I have one, very reliable.
but my experience told me if you want till Aldi reduce their stock, you can get it for something like £50. I saw two Aldi stores near me have this reduce early this year. I believe they will do the same next year

Everytime this programme begins, it starts with "Every minute of every day, someone, somewhere is getting burgled."

"This is Break-in Britain - The Crackdown." X)

Gotta admit everytime when there's a break-in, that shiny head bloke can't stop installing those wireless Yale systems. X)

Wonder what are his credentials? CRB checked? Even the website is crud.

Please does anyone with this kit know how many more PIR movement detectors, and door/window contacts you can add?
Thanks

Depends if you legitimately hold a staff card.
If you do, surely you know what it can be used for?
If not, I suggest you consult with your HR department.

Nicely bumped though. An attempt to keep this in the top 10 for the past 24 hours, perhaps??
Might save a few bob with the house insurance.

No just a friend works there

You sure about that? I know of 2 houses that were broken into and both had their alarms set and were triggered, yet one of them had over £4000 worth of items stolen, the other had their car stolen (broke in to take the car keys to a £40k Mercedes)
