I've been looking at this for a while too, I'd love to know where you've been looking because the normal price is £199.99.

Wouldn't we all. Other than Costco, there is no where else cheaper but I'm happy for you to prove me wrong. It has been posted cheaper with Ironmongery Direct but if you look at the posts into the thread, almost all orders were cancelled by the retailer.

Yep mine was one of them
terrible company.....
Voted hot, yes this is the cheapest your going to get this I got one from screw fix the other week for £199 that was the best price at the time.

Very easy to set up and works as it should, I've ended up getting keyfobs as I found it a pain keep typing pin in.

Fobs are currently on sale at home base well worth getting some at the price.

Thank you for the feedback sofiasar. You'd recommend it then I take it?
Will home insurance companies recognise it as a security device?

If you want my advice tailo, don't register an alarm with your insurance company. The premium isn't usually reduced much anyway (if at all), but if you ever forget to arm your system and you get burgled, it gives the insurance company an out to not pay and those money grabbing bartenders will try to find any way not to pay out. Just my tuppence worth.

Just for those interested, I note Amazon also have the keyfob at £14.99 as well as Homebase:

More on way but only 2 left in stock at this time, be quick...!
Is this similar to the £74.99 sold by Aldi? Quite similar! But the Aldi version might be older. Keyfob at £14.99 is a steal!

This alarm is the: EF-KIT2, the one you point to is the: HSA6400. From what I have been able to ascertain, the main and most important difference is:

The EF-KIT2 EasyFit alarm operates at 868MHz frequency compared with 433MHz as with the HSA6000 alarm range. 868MHz frequency is a more secure radio frequency and is less prone to interference from external sources. The EF-KIT2 EasyFit alarm also incorporates enhanced 'anti-jamming' technology and rolling code technology.

EF-KIT2 EasyFit alarm also allows up to 30 devices to be connected as opposed to the 20 with the HSA6400.

I didn't see page 2 and asked the same question

Also, found on Amazon....

Question: What are the key differences between this model and the Yale wirefree Premium Alarm Kit HSA6400
Answer: There are four main differences between the 'EasyFit' alarms and 'HSA6000' / HSA3000 DIY alarm range. These are: a. All sensors are pre-programmed to the EasyFit alarm - you do not have to `learn in' any devices (i.e. they are already 'pre-linked' in to the system). However you can still add up to 20 sensors (in total) to the alarm, as with the HSA6000 series b. The EasyFit alarm operates at 868MHz frequency (compared with 433MHz as with the HSA6000 alarms). This is a more secure radio frequency, with the advantage that the frequency is less prone to interference from external sources. It is also much more difficult to 'jam' the EasyFit alarm system (as the system incorporates enhanced 'anti-jamming' technology) c. The EasyFit's touchscreen control panel is more aesthetically pleasing d. The EasyFit incorporates keyfob controller rolling code technology. This means that each time the keyfob transmits a signal, a different code is transmitted and therefore it is impossible to duplicate keyfob arming/disarming signals. (Source: Yale's website FAQs)

How was the installation?

Need any additional hardware? How long did it take you roughly?

I'm tempted to head to screwfix and pick this up
Hi, thanks for posting.

Am thinking about getting this but can't see how to get it for £179.89 from Amazon (cheapest that I can see is £199.99+£6.12 delivery. Tried the link in the first post but the image doesn't appear and there is an error message.

Can someone advise how to get for the price listed?

Thanks

I've not attempted yet mate as it's never stopped raining here and don't fancy decommissioning the old wired system and installing the new bellbox in the rain, up a ladder.
Amazon offer is finished now. Cheapest now is Screwfix: screwfix.com/p/y…ity
Where can I buy more movement sensors from???

Mitch, I managed to fit the alarm a few weeks before Christmas (that one day we had no rain!!!!). I thought I'd leave it a few weeks to see how things go before posting back a review and it's so far, so good up to now.

Fitting was a doddle. The only difficult part was mounting the alarm box outside but that was due to where our old one was (we had a fully wired system before that was well out of date). But I finally managed to get the ladder up to remove the old box and install the new one. I placed the new one slightly lower as I knew it would then be easier to get to for replacement of the batteries. The door contacts and PIRs are no problem to mount and pair up with the main control box. I chose to use screws for all of the mounting of the PIRs and Door Contacts but they come with M2 sticky pads if you'd prefer not to screw into something, I just didn't want to take the risk of something dropping off and tripping the alarm. We've had no false alarms in the time it's been fitted. The only issue I've found is the Door Chime facility. I would like to have this on and it should be possible. I have a Door Contact on the front door and even if the alarm is not armed, it will give a chime if the front door is opened. Good if you're in the back of the house and someone opens it and you're not aware why. However, there seems to be an issue with this and I've had to turn off the facility (need to call Yale to ask them about it). Basically, as I mentioned, we have a Door Contact on the front door, that should give me a door chime when the door is opened (if enabled in the control panel). We also have a PIR in the hall. We have the PIR in the hall to protect the hall when the alarm is armed but also it is set as an 'Away Entry' PIR so when we come down stairs in the morning, it will trigger the alarm to start an entry countdown to 'remind' us to disarm it before we enter the rest of the house (as the alarm will then trigger). There are two options when setting a PIR as an 'entry' device, ENTRY or AWAY ENTRY. Now if you set it to 'ENTRY' it will give a chime every time you walk past it. However 'AWAY ENTRY' is supposed to disable the door chime on the device, this is not happening with ours, it's giving a chime when we walk past it. I've tried another PIR, this gives the same result, so something isn't right somewhere so I've just disabled the door chime feature for now. As I say, I'll have to give Yale a call about it to see if we can get it sorted. Overall though, it's been great and having the telephone feature is nice feature for peace of mind knowing that the system will alert you if it is triggered. Also, if you forget to arm the alarm when you leave the house or can't remember if you armed it, you can use the telephone facility to arm and disarm the system simply by calling it and entering your security code (the manual explains how to do this).

Give me a shout if you want any more info/advice.

Thanks for getting back to me! I ended up picking this up too.

Easy to install the PIR sensors and door sensors.
Haven't set up the external siren due to the weather, but have everything internal done (control panel, 2 x PiRs, 2 contact sensors and 3 phone numbers set up in event of breach)

Gonna pick up some extras in the near future
