I have this-very easy to install and extra pir/door sensors can be bought from Screwfix. Having an alarm brings your house insurance down too!

Unless it's a professionally fitted monitored alarm system don't tell your insurance. The difference is fractional, when I quoted it was about 40p a year and gives them wiggle room to not pay out if you forget to set it or they find fault with your installation.

Just use it for what it is, a loud box to put off opportunist burglars.

ditto and please don't use ADT if you were to get proffesionally fitted :). scam artists and salesmen lies . good job i read t and c and told him to come back. 90 percent of stuff he said was untrue.

good deal though. this is where aldi shines and all the rich people will be going in there with waitrose bags.

nice find

I agree I don't mention my alarm system to my insurers because one of the questions they ask is " is it maintained " and as it is not I am sure they would be able to get out of paying out in the event of a burglary

Cats set it off. They do pet friendly sensors for dogs.

If your cat doesn't climb you could put a strip of masking tape along the bottom of the sensor and point it higher than normal.

Really with an non ACPO approved alarm? Only ACPO type A with relevant service contract to an approved alarm reviving centre normally do this. What insurance co sony do you use?

I agree. It opens a can of worms. If you get burglarised and your alarm is faulty, isn't installed by a pro or isn't switched on they'll wiggle out of paying.

Is there any professional company you would recommend?
Thanks

If buying additional sensors etc just be careful. Yale sells two different alarm systems and as they use different frequencies the accessories/addons are not interchangeable....

Good point, this is the older system, I picked up key ring remotes for mine fairly cheap from Homebase in the sale.

Sorry, fitted mine myself. If you don't want to use ADT, then ask your local Neighbour Watch members for recommendations, there's usually a couple in the quarterly magazine.

Ring your local alarm fitting company, theres loads around and they usually guarantee their work and do yearly check ups to provide to your insurance if needed.

These kind of wireless alarms are a bit pointless - yes they will work against a pure opportunist but even casual burglars know how simple these are to jam All it costs is a cheap mutli frequency jammer from China and you can you block all of these 1-way systems. The fact there is a nice yellow "Yale" box on your house makes it even easier to get the right frequency.

2-way wireless alarms (that can detect failed/blocked sensors) are much more expensive. Yes this is cheap but I can't see any reason you would buy one tbh..a dummy alarm box will act as the same deterrent for a lot less money.

Thanks for the heads up - This is exactly what i need (been waiting for ages for a low priced wireless alarm system). Ill definitely be bagging one of these

Would your remotes work with this one do you reckon?

Not sure the burglars are that sophisticated round my way Spud. Its a deterrent and any deterrent helps surely. If a burglar sees a house with a box and one without which does he goes for? For £80 its not that much to add a little bit more security

This model is fitted with anti jamming to protect the system. The alarm will sound if jammed

Pro burglars can get round many alarm systems, but would they waste their time with the average semi. These are ideal for putting off misguided youths and junkies, if they do decide to break in, it should limit the time they have in your house. So more of a quick grab than rooting through your drawers.

This unit has anti-jam built in to the siren box when a 433mhz signal is detected (I've tried it with a universal garage opener on scan mode) and it lets you know when sensors are failing by flashing red and different bleeps.

If everyone had your attitude to it they wouldn't lock their doors as someone could just put a brick through the window.

That is total rubbish! I have had Yale alarm systems for years, and not once have I had a problem except one panel died through age, and Yale replaced it free with the latest version even tho it was way out of warranty!, they feature anti jamming tech to prevent this from happening. Fair enough if you buy one of those el crappo ones £40 systems from china, but trust me, from an experienced yale system user (2500 system, 3400 system, 6400 system, and now the EFK 2 System) these things work great. I generally find the people that **** them off are the ones that are connected with expensive professionally installed systems. Yale do also do a prof installed system too which can control lights etc It would be better to get the one with the LCD keypad so that you can see if there are any problems with the sensors

Would your remotes work with this one do you reckon?



I have this system, was given it as a gift when I first moved in with the intent of upgrading to a pro system. Been three years now and haven't felt the need to change yet, only got through one set of batteries too.

Although to add it's not my only security deterrent, I also use an IP camera, an autodialler and 2 ninja cats (shame they run from the door bell).

I won't mention how simple most locks are to pick then The point was that you don't need to be a "pro" burglar to circumvent this kind of cheap alarm system. Yes they have anti jamming to a degree in that you can't use the garage door opener/light switch trick, but the tools are cheap and easily available. There is a reason Yale introduced the "Easy Fit" series which work on a 868mhz frequency - they admit themselves that they needed to improve the anti jamming from the older systems....

It just seems pointless to me and I have no connection to any alarm company. Why not just buy the proper tool for the job - just seems false economy to me. That is just my opinion of course.

Suppose it all depends at what level you feel comfortable at and what people want to spend.

DIY system, a pro fitted system, a monitored pro fitted system, CCTV, armed guards, bullet proof glass, safe rooms, the list is endless.

Any +1 for not telling insurance company.... Unless professionally installed and maintained it will make no difference to quote at all. Good for peace of mind. Box good deterrent.... I'd go for a box that has a constantly flashing led though...

burglarized - is that american for burgled?

May as well fit a dummy box for about a tenner rather than spend £80 quid on a cheap system

If you're worried about jamming , then maybe go for one of their up-to-date systems, such as this one:- ebuyer.com/491…it1

Shame a dummy doesn't wake you when your back door is getting smashed in.

Thanks

I've had this for a few years, really easy installation, And batteries tend to last around 2 years before needing to be replaced

I think it's a rape alarm that you need for that type of "intrusion" not a Yale house alarm....

I have the 6400 which Screwfix are selling for 160. That has a better control panel and also autodials - I get calls when wifey gets the number wrong !!! Been in a couple of weeks with no problems, also got the pet PIR
