Yale EF-Series Telecommunicating Alarm Kit - Was £184 now £145 @ Amazon

18
Found 9th Aug 2017
Been waiting for this alarm to come down in price to the sub £150 mark and it's just hit the lowest ever on Amazon according to CamelCamelCamel.







Gets good reviews across the internet and loads of YouTube videos showing its features and setup.







Grab the keyfob too at £13.99

good price and excellent alarm have mine 3 yrs now as i got it for £180 in homebase but please do not buy the fob as it does not work due to incompatibility with wireless frequencies but it does not tell you until you have bought the key fob and instructions say. in saying that it only arms the alarm when leaving but that will be it. i fell for that one too.

Decent price.

Was tempted to get one recently but negative reviews put me off.

Mines going in the garage so I doubt many signals would affect it in there? Can always send it back with Amazon returns too.

yes i bought the fob directly from yale as told them the alarm number and paid £25 for it but just does not work and contacted yale to get further info but they just said to sent it back.
I have one of these and it also covers the garage and man shed (2nd garage type). only issue I've had a pir in the garage but around 3pm if the sun was shining in it would go off so put door contacts in.
The key fob is ok for us and have 3 of them, just make sure anything you buy have the silver Yale sticker not yellow as they don['t work with this setup.
Excellent price.......HOT

​I have this alarm and key fob it's works great with mine best thing ever easy to turn on and off ..
I'm waiting for the smart SR 320 or 330 series...
I have this alarm, upgraded the PIR's to pet-friendly, added the fobs for all of use who reside here, have the additional key control panel upstairs.

Easy to install (i'm known to be useless at DIY), only ever had one activation and it was from Amazon delivering a parcel to the garden! The phone alarm notification and ability to cancel/reset the alarm is a bonus.
am I right in thinking I can put one sensor in log cabin in garden and the other sensor in bungalow?

log cabin in only 30 ft from bungalow.

What sensor did Amazon trigger? A PIR pointing at a window?

I upgraded the kitchen to pet friendly PIR and it didn't pick me up at 6 foot so swapped it out and the 2nd didn't pick me up either think I'm going to try walk on the ceiling next. I've got a bungalow so have the windows fitting with door/window detectors as well . I turned the sounder off in the house as it's that loud and if it goes off during the day with the dog by himself.

Have you tried changing the sensitivity?

The PIR Was in the corner of a room and the window was on the wall the PIR was mounted to, however, I can only assume that the PIR reflected off the metal fridge through the window and caught the Amazon delivery driver! (Backed up with CCTV Footage for the time of activation).
