hihave you got the product code



Product code is 142980, can't post the image of the receipt for some reason.
Just rang customer services and they're saying it's £79.99, down from £150. Probably store specific.
Nice... Off to wickes Truro I go
Wishford read this before Richard lander school run though
store specific clearance item. Glad i didnt get out of bed for this
not worth it, you only get 1 pir and 1 door sensor, will cost another £30 for both. there were cheaper clearance in Asda last time
poor 1 way only wireless alarm, either get a 2 way wireless of don't bother with this junk.

Of course it is worth £20, heated.
fitted one of these a while back

poor performance, false alarms etc

Had to keep it swicthed OFF, expensive just to use the siren box as a deterrant

Does it come with the yellow round box to fix to to the ourside wall? If so, regardless if it is too basic, that box alone is worth this money if you check ebay or gumtree.
Bargain - good find, have some heat
None in Chadwell Heath BTW

This 'junk' will give people a working alarm, how about showing us some sort of quality equivalent around this price.

I don't have to show you anything. This alarm will give a working alarm but with quite a few security breaking caveats.

I fitted one for a customer, it worked without issue. If you are on a tight budget this will work though as is usually the case if you multiply your budget by 10 you'll get a better system.

The big yellow Yale box says to a thief's bring along a wireless jammer, the wireless jamming capabilities of the alarm will most likely have been turned off by the owner (as recommended in the manual) due to false alarms. What manufacturer who's confident in the product recommends that?
To be fair, £20 is a good price. It's a hell of a discount on the standard retail price! As for only having 1 pir & 1 door sensor, I'm sure a burgler would rather go for a house without an alarm, and as most day to day burglers are opportunists rather than criminal masterminds. I'm sure they won't check to see how many pir's there are just so they can take your purse or ps4! I had one similar to this many years back and it did the job, I never got burgled. Shame it will probably be a store specific item. Heat tho.

We had one of these and TBH it wasn't very good, false alarms, no alarms etc. No I can't point you to a decent product at this price but that's not really the point. This is something that is supposed to add security to your home and protect your family and contents, IMO this isn't a reliable product at doing this. Il still give you heat as price wise it's good compared to its usual price.

Jamming the signal does not work that well, there are a few items that are on a similar frequency and this is why Yale do not recommend enabling the frequency jamming option unless you are single house with nothing around for 200 meters and have no other items that might cause the alarm to see a false positive. You will need a very strong jammer (not something pocket sized) to be effectual as only a single part of the data stream alarm request will be enough to trigger the alarm.

Most false positives are due low batteries, and when the voltage reduces so does the reliability of the alarm and increase in false positive alarms. If the range of the PIR seems in anyway reduced or the red light seems dimmer than usual replace the batteries with some good quality batteries.

The best solution is a wired solution but this costs considerably more money and needs an expert to install and maintain.
Most people will use this as a deterrent, with some side benefits. I wish I had one before I was burgled. Most burglars are opportunists and this may deter some. Any burglar alarm posted (in fact any deterrent- TV simulators etc) receive the same negative comments. In my opinion it's far better than having nothing.
Normal price in Swindon store.

wireless jammer? what is is, ocean's hukd? unless premiership footballers are reading through hukd looking for a basic alarm for their mock georgian **** palace i don't imagine my local ingrate is going to be using a wireless jammer to burgle my ol' mamma's bungalow when he can earn as much by threatening the local schoolboy for his dinnermoney.

wireless jammer, my left wingnut!

well, unless you're one of the hatton garden mob, using HM's internet, i reckon i have as much experience of 'wireless jamming' burglars as you do... but i'm happy for you to tell me, and the rest of hukd, your tale of wireless international espionage and betamax thefts...

I wont go into details on here but jamming can be done using a USB TV tuner dongle quite easily.

The TV USB dongle that is designed to receive TV various signals and can also be used with software as a broad spectrum receiver so far so good, the problem is that it does not transmit it receives unless you are talking about intermediate frequencies but these will be very very low powered. As I said you need something that will transmit a fair amount of power and this is a data stream not voice so bandwidth is narrow and harder to stop, it is possible but for the effort I would not worry a great deal.

The dongle can be re-programmed to be a SDR, this can then be used locally on a door contact for example, as the Yale system is only a 1 way wireless system the detector can then be taken away from the system without the system knowing.

To remove or add a device with the Yale you need to enter the pin go through the configuration section +/- devices select and then remove, as I am aware it can not be completed without entering the pin and cycling through the menu.
Have one of these guarding my back door and haven't received a false alarm to date.

These are 1 way wireless systems, if a device is physically removed from the system i.e unscrewed from the door and taken out of wireless range the alarm panel does not know. The panel relies on the detector to tell it when an alarm activation has taken place.
Will this work with the iPhone 6 or just the 6s? Looking to be able to turn it off remotely before I get out of the car if it's raining.

There's no disputing this is a fairly insecure alarm system though suggesting the average burglar has the intelligence to use a signal jammer strikes me as ludicrous. Bump keys, capable of unlocking most modern doors are easy to make and use though the average burglar will smash a window.

Buy two sets then. Will only cost you £20 extra, not £30 and you'll have other spares too.
