I'm starting to wonder about the site you find a deal, cheapest place to buy something. 180quid cheaper than anywhere else and people still vote it cold?!? Please give reasons on why this isn't a good deal? Don't like it or already got an alarm... surely thats not a reason to vote cold... not a good deal? then yeah... please vote cold. Starting to think why I bother. oO

Hot deal!!!!

Wonder if burglars will start to learn that as soon as they break into a house the first job will be to find and turn of the router.

hot from me btw

People vote cold because it's not a game/graphics card/console etc. Either that or they saw the word Apple.

Is this camera one of those which require port forwarding etc?

2 reviews on there and neither very positive about it...maybe reduced for a reason?

Sadly, there are a few numpties that feel the need to vote on anything as soon as it's posted. If hasn't got Aldi or Poundland or 'creamy chocolate' in the title, they vote cold.
Seems a good price for Yale, especially as I got a quote in excess of £700 for basic monitoring - closer to £900 for extras like police alert etc
Great for a flat, but I'd be looking for something with at least 2 cameras/PIRs

To be honest, I have a Yale alarm system, admittedly not this type, But it annoys the hell out of me, I dread to think what the neighbours think, But when you arm/disarm the thing is lets out 2 loud beeps from the bell box, Not an issue you are thinking?

It must be annoying as hell for the neighbours when I am arming the thing late at night, every night. To be honest I didn't fully understand how loud it was until I heard a similar alarm been armed by another household.

No need for that. Just swich off electricity (almost all boxes are outside and easy openable) and you are done.
This alarm is more gadget tbh. Wireless is useless in alarms,as easy to jam with wi-fi jammer.
Great price but no use of unit as an alarm unit.

To be fair that would annoy the hell out of me too if a neighbours house did that. Kind of like shouting "Everybody! Everybody! My house is now armed and secure!!! Everybody!!" - Every day and night.

If I were you I'd look in the manual or ask Yale if there's a way to turn this off from the control panel.

You need to replace the batteries in the alarm box it does that when they start to run low

It's done that from new, it's not a battery issue, It's an arming/disarming status as pointed out (_;)

The control panel's are very basic on the Yale models, I have the wireless one.......

I'd be surprised if there's not some code you can use, if you do a google search for the service manual they're usually out there. Can be quite well hidden as you'd be saving £90 or so on a callout for a Service Engineer to come out and fix it, sorry type in the same code.

nice find, ignore those who vote cold. I'm in the market for a alarm system, so thanks for the info.

Don't worry - heat from me! Decent price...

It's the same with my Friedland one must be a diy design. The alarm bell is solar and has beeped since first install

This is a DIY model I wouldn't pay someone to do it unless you're really useless at DIY everything is wireless so a matter of screwing it to the wall.

For that price you could get a quality pro system with autodialer. Granted you'd have to hard wire it but it will be more secure and you wont be swapping batteries every 6 months. I've just fitted a Texecom Premier Elite with GSM autodialler for less than this thats rated as Grade 3.

I understand the point you are making but there's no need to exaggerate the recommended battery replacement is yearly and mine are still going strong after 2 years

Just read the description again and you only get 2 pir's and 1 door contact, thats hardly enough to protect a 1 bed flat never mind an average semi.

£312 and you then have to add to it to protect an average house, no thanks.



dont worry, it'll come to you with age.

The world of "Watch dogs" is becoming ever so much more realistic...

Couldn't you make something to do the same thing for much less?
I mean a RasPi plus few components and your looking sub £100 if not in the region of £50. Sure it won't have the name, but functionality wise pretty much like for like.

I had the same thing with my Yale. I decided to actually read the manual and you can turn that arm/disarm confirmation off - mine just flashes twice instead.

I did just that, works very well. only issue is finding a cheap case to house the pi and camera.

I know that feeling.

Seems to me that the root of the problem is that people earn badges by voting, with (afaik) no account taken of the hot/cold proportion. So a member who anticipates no higher achievement in life than their HUKD judge badge has an incentive to go down the list of new deals, voting cold on all of them, getting closer with each click to their next level judge badge.

Is there a solution? Well, that's up to the management, but I'd like to see a trial of a new badge that indicates the proportion of hot votes to cold votes cast by the member. And, if someone's voting history is, say, 99% or more cold, their judge badge could have a lovely icicle added to it...

Another factor is that among the membership are bound to be some individuals who are so deeply narcissistic that they vote hot or cold based on "Is this deal for a thing I want?"

exactly buzz mine and others Only flash. but your name is buzz so may be that's the reason your alarm makes a buzz noise
sort it out.
I have the telephone premium one and it has the lcd screen so I'm happy with my purchase. I also added a remote control

Yeah... Great... Except, of course, my comment was about dissing a deal with no evidence of a better one - one of my pet hates on this site, which also includes - but is not limited to:

1. Cold... Not an iphone
2. Cold... Last years model
3. Cold... I bought it for less in the past
4. Cold... I can make one out of pipe cleaners and modeling clay for less
5. "Brought"

But hey-ho, it's Friday... To each their own and all that...

crabby

I have given head based on cost but would strongly suggest the money be put towards a professional system, even as wireless these are 1 way radio and easily circumnavigated.
