The Yale Easy Fit EF-KIT1 Alarm Kit is suited to flat, terraced or semi-detached homes and is really simple to install too.

Simple home alarm system

Based around an uncomplicated keypad-operated system, the Yale EF-KIT1 Alarm Kit is a great way to safeguard your home or small business.

Two PIR movement detectors pick up when someone is moving through a protected area, effectively triggering the alarm system's siren box. There are also two door contacts to cover entrances, helping to stop intruders before they gain full access to your home.

Easy operation

Your Yale EF-KIT1 Home Alarm System can be quickly set or disabled using an access code via the keypad. A 20-second exit/entry period can be pre-set to allow for more convenient arming and disarming.

No cabling is needed between each component since they're all wirelessly per-linked.

Make sure you've got your home covered with the Yale Easy Fit EF-KIT1 Alarm Kit.

Those hating wireless alarm systems.

Do you have a wireless key fob for your car? junk?
Do you have a wireless remote for your tv? junk?

Me thinks the haters all have their kit hard wired so they think they are better than others. But i know many people who use wireless and not only have i never heard their kit playing up or letting them down. They have actually caught burglars in the act, nothing is junk if it actually prevents burglaries.

wireless junk !!!

Dont buy a wireless alarm unless its a 2 way system, this is not.

I have had wireless alarms for 19 years. They are great.

Are these the type of alarms where the wireless signal can be jammed and allow burglars to enter your property with ease?

Yale wireless alarms all have an anti-jamming feature, so I think several of you may be misinformed.

It's listed as one of the features

I pay a vagrant a few pennies a day to sleep outside my house with a carpet knife. Also keeps evil spirits away...

From the manual...

"This unit is equipped with the latest type of radio receiver using FM radio technology. If the system is armed any criminal attempt to interfere detector transmissions will trigger an alarm. If the alarm is frequently triggered by interference there may be high levels of unusual radio signals in your area. Some kinds of electronic equipment can generate this kind of radio interference. In the unlikely event of you experiencing problems with interference, it is recommended that you switch interference detection off. "

As I said unless it's a 2 way system it's junk, this system will still set if you remove both the PIR's as the main box won't know they're missing.

I got one of these a while ago;

screwfix.com/p/y…114

Slightly cheaper with the same number of sensors, although you can't use the USB thingy so that might be where the price difference comes from. Very easy to fit and works effectively.

You would only be able to remove them when it's not armed surely? Bit of a moot point no?

Got the wireless Yale alarm with touchscreen from Screwfix last month for £199. Very easy to install, dials up to 3 saved numbers if sensors go off, no false alerts and does the job. Only downside I can see is when the time comes to changing the batteries.

Correct but to add to that if the magnetic contacts are attached to a back door or window the alarm can still be set if accidentally left open, not ideal

All the PIRs and door sensors have anti-tamper proof sensors so the mainbox will know if any have been moved.

I got the version up for about 160 from screw fix last year. No problems so far although I put the detectors too high and I need to move them down. Sometimes they don't trigger in test mode (usually they do) but my ceilings are quite high and I don't think the angle is set right. Good bit of kit imo and every home should have a basic one.

For around the same price you can buy the Response G5 wireless alarm which links to your mobile so you can have full control over the system from almost anywhere,if the system is activated it sends you a sms/phone call to let you know right away and it can be set to silent mode if you want,you can store up to six numbers for different members of the family,it comes with two rfd tags and two remotes,and has a sos function usefull for the elderly or infirm as it can call who is on the list of numbers to let them know,this is also on the remote so if they need help they just press the sos and you get a call immediately,all in all a far more flexible system than the yale one

they wouldn't know uve got a wireless alarm anyways...

I've got one it's done me proud

I wouldn't even put this on my shed that's got a broken lawnmower in!!

To clear a few things up

These are anti jamming
Removing both PIRs will activate the alarm

On the walk test / test mode, the motion detectors will enter "sleep mode", so it may appear that they're not picking up anything if there's continuous movement in the room immediately after they've been switched on.

Some home insurers will not class some wireless alarms as true alarms so check with your provider first

This is a great bit of kit, very load.

However, wired is better than wireless

To get to the PIR's surely the alarm would go off though no? if the alarm was set??

Unless you have contents that are worth a lot specially gold, bundles of cash, expensive cars on your drive then it doesn't matter wired or wireless because you won't be targeted by a high tech burglar aiming to hack your WiFi. This type of burgulars don't go for random people.

The replies slating it being wireless an being able to be hacked are nuts, your giving way to much credit to the local smack heads having jamming equipment. Also as stated how the hell would they know, they set the motion sensor off and run, not check out the alarm system. You get what you pay for in most things but as a low cost effective deterrent it's a good buy.

if the alarm is armed, yes but if the alarm is not armed and detectors are removed (or just left in an open state, i.e contact on a door or window) the system won't know the next time you arm it.

with that view you'd may as well just buy dummy boxes

How many times do you hear 'wired systems are better than wireless'???? Wireless systems have advanced over the years and depending on what you want to spend they're good.

So its a good enough system once alarmed right?

I mean you can always set the alarm and then check your PIR's are still in place before you go to bed (or pop out).

I agree with you on certain points but i do not agree with you that its junk. They do work and are affordable for many people. Junk to me means they simply 100% will not work.

The issue is doors or windows left open (that have contacts) when you arm the system, for not much more you can get a 2 way wireless system

Both statements are not true.
I have the Telecommunication version of EasyFit. Obviously you even didn't read the manual of this alarm. It has both options: it will trigger the alarm if you tamper the PIR/Magnetic switch (yes, even when the alarm is not armed!)and it can refuse to arm if you leave the door/window open.

I have an old hardwired alarm that's broken and want to know if i can still use the sensors that are wired to the old box with a new system? I've found this. ..Honeywell

we had this, the burglar simply located the panel and unplugged it, no alarm no nothing, stole over 20k of stuff from the house, switched to adt as a result
