A schoolboy error on my part thanks for that mclgannm

Safe as houses!!!!

Fitted one at Mom's nearly four years ago and it works a treat.
Unfortunately, it requires that annually the bell housing be taken down and charged via the transformer (usually after the winter) and the batteries replaced in the sensors.
It's less efforth than rolling back carpets and lifting floorboards.
Heat added.
PS Screwfix sorks on Quidco

Might have been a different model but on my Yale alarm the siren took 4 D cell batteries which needed changing about every 2 or 3 years (extra pips sound when batteries are low) and the sensors even longer (control panel indicate low batterys).

The newer upgraded alarm is can be got for about £220 (sometimes £200) and is another option to think about.

2 door contacts maybe?

Strangely enough the newer model which has the same number of sensors and door contacts are described as "2 room" by Screwfix....

Shouldn't it be certified for house insurance purposes? Website doesn't mention any of this.

Does the controller detect jamming and sets off alarm or will it let any burglar with more than 5 brain cells and few pounds worth of electronics in his pocket?

Only the downsides of this alarm (I have an earlier model) is that when the alarm does go off it frantically starts dialling the three numbers, and will leave voicemails. A false alarm can cost me £5 on my Virgin media phone bill as two of the numbers I have set are mobiles. This is a common occurrence when I'm on holiday and a friend or neighbour is looking after my cats.

For house insurance you will have to have a contract alarm ,probably only save you a tender anyway

I have this but seems the bell has changed shape from a circle to a rectangle lol and added the phone system as this was only on the telecoms set got like £229 or £179 on sales.
I have bought a remote alarm got this from home base and it was cheaper their but make sure you buy the right remote as there is 2.
very cheap at £12 on the sale and it's so relaxing

before you declare alarm system for home insurance just to save a few pounds.
Contract system recommended by insurance companies have a permanent log (I think this is sinister). They can check if you have not armed your system (i.e. you forgot)- they can avoid paying out. even if you armed your system in the wrong mode it may void your claims.

these are hopeless, if a burglar is determined you will have a sore bot

Seen this offer a week ago but fancy the newer one with the touch control panel looks really cool.
Qvc had it for £200 the other week but cash poor at the mo.

How do these connect to the telephone line? Do they need to be installed near a landline socket?

Yup. I think the control panel needs to be located near a power socket and a phone line. That said, you can buy a remote key pad that runs from batteries so the main control panel could be located anywhere in the house (near power and phone) and the remote keypad located by the door. This is also safer; if Mr Burglar comes through the front door then the control panel beeps (it does not know if it you or Mr Burglar so gives you time to unset it). If Mr Burglar then destroys it or unplugs it from the phone socket before the alarm is actually triggered, no message sent...
