Any idea if this is 2 way communication between devices?
Are they clearing this in preparation for selling the new Ring Alarm which goes on sale next month?

You would need to look at something like the Pyronix Enforcer for that

And the SimpliSafe. And the Netatmo. And the Abode Alarm. And the, well, you get the idea.

Old style "bells only" alarms needed an outdoor siren to get the neighbours attention in the hope someone will do something. It's not as essential for smart self-monitored alarms as you can just look on your phone yourself to see if anyone is fleecing you and call the police if required. Hell, you can even talk to them if you have a ring cam fitted!

been given a ring house alarm as a tester - its a joke. The keypad is not even intuitive and no external siren as you mention! Stick to HIK Pyronix myself!

So instead they call you who in turn have to call the police in the hope that they do something?
ukflyboy i think your missing the point of an alarm it’s a deterrent to stop the opportunistic burglar if they see an external siren they are more likely to move on to the next target, although i do get your point about of a smart alarm but what if your internet is down or you don’t have a phone signal then the thing is useless, i have the yale sync series alarm that’s app enabled and sends me notifications and i can even talk to them if i so wish through my cameras........ but more importantly to me i have 2 external sirens as a deterrent.
Each to there own i suppose but i honestly don’t get an alarm with no siren lol

I have the Enforcer. It's an excellent system. Batteries in the PIRs and sounder last around 4 years from experience. I have the old version which has no app control, but even then it's solid and to my knowledge, given it's two way no one has managed to hack it yet. Never had a false alarm. I had it fitted professionally but after seeing how the guy went around doing it, realized I could have done it myself (except perhaps climbing a 20 foot ladder for the sounder!). These are going pretty cheap on ebay if you're ok with the DIY approach.
Or just get whatever system you want and scrimp an old deterrent-looking thing off eBay to put on the wall as well.

Do you happen to have any of these? Looking for recommendations! Trying to find one with IFTTT support, but none of them have great reviews.

I don't I'm afraid, still on the lookout for the best system for me. The SimpliSafe seems to be universally regarded as the best, but then it is also £20 a month to get the most out of it which is extortionate compared to the rest (though to be fair, it does take things up a notch with proper professional monitoring).

You're correct to say that an external siren is a key deterrent - Which magazine's study of 1000 ex-burglars said 71% would be put off a house by a visible alarm system. It also said only around 20% of them thought they could tell the difference between a real and a fake external siren, so you could always just buy an empty Yale box off the Internet.
A smart alarm isn't useless just because you don't have Internet - the likes of the ring actually has built in cellular and batteries, so if your power and WiFi go down, it can still call and text the three people in your call out list to say there is a problem. Even without this, most of them have a ridiculously loud internal siren and can flash your smart lights on and off throughout the house - unless you're in a rural location then any burglar is going to be out of there before they've had a chance to do anything!
And an external siren isn't the only thing a burglar is going to look for before they force entry - if they see the keypad, PIR, contact sensors on the windows, a video doorbell or external cameras etc, they are still going to move off somewhere else.

I'm also considering the Yale Sync as it looks like a great, relatively inexpensive system, but the thing putting me off is its lack of IFTTT and poor integration across various systems. Ring might not have an external siren but feels years ahead ahead of Yale in terms of integrating cameras etc together and is only going to get better as an Amazon subsidiary.
I have the Ismartalarm system and it has been flawless over the last couple of year, works with IFTTT and I have it set itself at night and disarm every morning, one less thing I have to do

They won’t come out to house alarms unless it’s a confirmed break in. Too many false activations. How many people listen to external ones these days anyway? They become more of an inconvenience to most neighbours.
I’ve got the Yale HSA6000 which is the wireless one.
Had it for 5 years now and had to replace the batteries twice.
Can’t fault it, easy installation, works a treat and has a nice yellow box on the front of the house letting people know “yes, we do have an alarm punks”
Would never go wired.
I get the outside alarm can be ignored by neighbours.
A smart alarm seems useful to be able to control things when away from the home. However being humans we need sleep and may sleep through an alert. Unless the app I suppose sets of an alarm noise on our mobiles/tablets? Do the apps just constantly run in the background? Not likely to receive an alert when you don't have a wifi/data connection. For most people that isn't for long, if say at a cinema, theatre, underground etc.

I do have the Smart Water system which the police gave me for free. A sticker is on the front door and on the patio door at the rear warning the prorperty has it with items marked. Unsure if this deters burglars any more or less. Items of some value have been marked.

A monitored system sounds good but they seem to be rather expensive. Someone said a Verisure system and monitored they were quoted over £600. ukflyboy mentions £20 per month which seems cheaper than what I read people and companies were saying it is. No doubt London there will be a premium price attached.

I've had 2 or 3 false alarms over the past month or so. Spiders (such as building a web above and dangling in front of the sensor whilst the property wasn't occupied for 3 days), insects, moths triggering a different sensor. I doubt any neighbour will investigate an alarm. Did get a note though.

I am wanting to put up a CCTV system.

I have read spiders and insects don't like peppermint. Going to try spraying some made with a bit of peppermint oil + a drop of washing liquid and some water mixed to together near the PIR sensors to stop the spiders etc from triggering false alarms.

Someone suggested dualtec PIRs to stop false alarms. I may try those if the peppermint spraying doesn't work or I start forgetting to do it. Although I am wondering if I am going to replace the PIR sensors in the future, if it may just be worthwhile putting in a more up-to-date alarm system in instead? Current system is a Scantronic which is used in homes and businesses. It was fitted by the previous owners. I've just put vaseline round the sensors, done walk tests every few months and replaced the back-up battery.

Don’t put people off buying an alarm with lies like that ! Police will attend a burglar alarm if informed about it and potentially suspicious, even if no confirmed break At the time and they have the resources to attend. Obviously if they are told by the confirmed householder it is a false alarm they will stand down.
You are correct about false activations, and the issue is that people don’t call the Police assuming it is yet another false alarm which is where break in’s can occur, and then you’re relying on neighbours to watch out for you usually.
