This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Yale have some decent offers on house alarms, including the EF range like the one in the description. Amazon have it at £115. I went for the telecommunicating model of the same range, but thought a decent price for a basic alarm system - e.g. for garages.

They have a 'best offer' facility and seem to be accepting around £5 under the buy it now.

This is the rudsmentry system - use keypad to set alarm and arm system. If the door contact or a PIR goes off, the siren sounds. Keypad can turn the alarm off. The only notification you have is the siren going off.

If a flat, you would need to consider where you are going to mount the siren - it has to be fixed to a wall due to the anti-tamper device on the back that needs to be compressed.

You could buy the starter set and then look around for the Hub. That would give you in app, email and SMS notifications when the alarm goes off. No sunscription costs for these

Anybody recommend these?
I think they are quite good. Needs batteries replaced in mine but definatley worth the money
These alarms are very good. Had for about 7 years still going strong.
Will need to change batteries from time to time. The control panel tells u when they need changing

Had mine 2 years or so. Does a job, really easy to fit. Only has a bell box outside.. Depends what you need really.
I have the same alarm but 2 pir sensors very good easy to fit think I paid about £120 so good price
Very good for money. Never had issues. I might buy it as a spare
This may be a silly question but where is the keypad to deactivate the alarm? I can see there is a key fob that could be used for one person but how would you deactivate it.
And how can the control panel tell you when the batteries need changing when there is no control panel?

Not a great deal considering there is no control panel and that is exactly what I’m after as mine broke down
I had one of these around 15 years ago, wirelesss yale, every so often would create a false alarm, vowed never to use Yale again. Hope they have improved.

Honeywell wireless alarm with a keypad and much more kit than this Yale set for under £95 delivered
Yeah we have this. Bought the basic kit with keypad and then added bits from there.

Wife’s Nan has a key fob for when she pops round to let the dog out etc.

Got door sensor attached to garage door also which works well. Can just buy extra things when you need them.

Not replaced the battery in the alarm box itself yet but have done in the key fobs a couple of times.

You would hope after 15 years they have improved their products
Fitted mine last week, I arm & disarm mine with the Yale app and really easy.
Only thing I'm struggling with is how to fit the window/door contacts on double glazed windows.
Bought years ago. Put up the sounder box and never bothered to install the rest of it.

So far never been burgled, I think that 90% of this is visual deterrent and 10% luck...
No faffing with false alarms and fobs

This one doesn't have app control does it?
Sorry I fitted the IA - 320 didn't know you can't control this one with the app.
We have one which works with an app, so if your out and forgot to put it on you can activate it from your phone where ever you are, or if your alarm goes off you will be notified! So I would recommend the one with the app!

I'd recommend this one: ebay.co.uk/itm…291
It has a keypad and a hub so you can control it using the app and get alerts away from home.
You can get it for £120 by best offer
Good deal
Good price. You can use these to expand an ef-kit 2. My siren was only at the front of the house so bought a starter pack to add a real siren to the rear.

Hi all,

I have this EasyfFit (EF) system in use so anyone as any questions, please ask.

The EF range is designed to be expanded as needed.

For example, you can Add the EasyFit HUB to the system, which connects all the devices to the hub and then gives you the Yale Home app access and control for setting your system.
- The app is available in android and IOS, plus has Apple Watch support too.

- the app allows you to configure the system via the comfort of your phone, manually bypass devices, set tests, turn on/off chime etc.

- you also get free SMS notifications when the alarm goes off as well as email and in-app notifications.

- the EasyFit also integrates with Philips Hue - so you can have the lights turn on, set colour (eg red) when the alarm goes off etc.

- to check compatibility, look at the model numbers - all the EF are compatibile.

- the older HSA alarms and the newer IA alarms are not compatible with the system.

- with the Easy Fit, you Can NOT integrate with Alexa. You need to buy IA. However Is is newer, less parts on eBay and full price so you pay a lot more for the components and you still get internet access via the Hub.

The manual says You can add upto 20 EasyFit devices to the system, which is quite a lot.

Different parts that exist you can get:
-door/window Contact sensors
- PIR sensor
- PET PIR Sensor
- PIR camera Sensor
- PIR Video Sensor
- External Siren
- Panic Button
- Internal Siren
-Dummy Siren (just a shell)
- Keypad
-Telecommunication box
- Fob (lock/unlock)
-Hub (for internet/app)

Thanks but I need Yale as have everything already set up. It’s just the control panel that I need replaced. Sadly it’s the expensive bit.

These are easy to fit but the sirens are prone to faults. The tamper spring can expand and contract with different temperatures which causes false tamper alarm. Wind can also affect it. We have just ended up turning off the outside siren off. The good thing is the internal system still alarms (3 x PIR and panic button) so alerts me on my phone.
Edited by: "deleted675894" 30th May
I've used these Yale easy fit in the house for 6 years starting with the telecommunicating model then upgraded the control box to the internet version which took 30 minutes as once the box was online you had to push the button on all devices to pair simples.
Door contacts on Man shed door and garage doors so we get a dingdong if any door is opened.
You can remote set or keyfob plus a button pad if the fob doesn't work.
No issues with the system.

Now the range above easyfit can do all sorts of extra's but in my eyes there is more options to fail by setting the system as you leave the area etc.
I had purchased a Yale alarm system 3 years back after my brother recommended it as he had installed one in his house.

I have had quite a few issues in the first year. The external siren would go off, sometimes in the middle of the night, even when unpaired it from the control panel it would still go off. Once I had to make my way back from work due to a false alarm. Then it was a case of replacing the batteries on the door connector. I changed it but after a few hours would show up as low battery and the panel makes a beep noise to indicate a fault. Then the room sensor battery needed replacing, replaced that but when you walked into the room and alarm was on, the sensor would not detect any movement. I called Yale a number of times and in fairness they replaced each device that became faulty due to a two year warranty but it was a lot of headache that I could of done without. We are now without the major faults for two years now but every once in a while the main panel would show a power supply fault and beep. It comes and goes once in a blue moon.

My brother on the other hand has had no faults.

It is a decent system that any novice can install, it is wireless and does the job, I just guess I was unlucky with a bad batch.

This it the older HSA version, not compatible with the EAsy Fit range
scrasie30/05/2020 12:27

You can only use the App if you have the Easy Fit Hub connected to the internet. Otherwise consider more accessories such as the keypad (by the door) or the telecommunications box.
does anyone know if additional PIR's can be fitted?
I have one, great value and reliable(y) I have the hub too though, so I can control it with the app and get alerts.

Need to buy wireless keypad separately and imagine most would need a second door contact and another PIR each of which are about £20 each so will end up costing allot more than price listed. This is most basic one more expensive ones have an app or phone dialer and will contact you if alarm goes off so you know if it goes off but need pay more for those versions.
stuysmith29/05/2020 19:32

Yes this is what I have at home easy set up and siren is very loud!
I also have Easy Fit got it for £90 from Homebase £90 2 years ago. Comes with two of each PIR also a dummy Yale alarm box. I also got the main control panel.

A year later I got mini control panel which you can attach to a wall near the door to easily alarm as you enter/exit home.

Over the two years had to change the battery for the main door once as it's the only one that triggers majority of the time.

Good investment.
