I did, as in the app apparently isn't great relative to Ring. Yale are a traditional physical locks company that is brining tech to its systems; Ring as a tech startup that has technology and the app at the very centre of the system, so I should imagine it will always trump the Yale app. Point to consider from my research:
1) if you have pets, get the ring - their sensors are pet friendly out of the box but you'll have to buy pet friendly PIRs for the Yale.
2) the Ring will cost you £80 a year for the main advantages of their product. If you want buy and forget, get the Yale.
3) if you also plan to get some cameras at some point, consider getting the Ring. They are better integrated into the same app and have better cameras.

Yale = cheaper long term, Ring = more options.
I got a Yale system recently and although the app isn’t great, it is a good system and I would recommend it.
l would go with the Ring alarm over this anyday as it can be flitted as fit and forget system as well as a monitord. Yale is waste of money and behind with the times.

Has anyone seen a comparison between the different Yale systems? For example the difference between the ia-320, 330, 340 or the + and family kits etc. Cheers

The one here is also known as the family kit. The Family Kit Plus adds a door sensor and a remote fob and is also the 330, the 340 has plugs and a smoke alarm too.

it does not have pro morning option like nsi or like ADT nor will it ever have so it a backward step. Also monitord alarms are recognized by home insurance.

You are correct, but you are also comparing apples and oranges. Professionally installed and monitored alarms are a completely different ball game to self installed smart alarms. For a start, they are significantly more expensive through life. And yes, the likes of an ADT pro monitored alarm might save you some money on home insurance, but when I looked the subscription cost was more than our annual insurance bill! We are just after a deterrent without the long term costs, and for that the likes of a Ring or this Yale work great - a Which study of 1000 ex burglars said 71% would be put off burgling a property if they saw a home alarm, so your chances of being done over go down considerably just by having something fitted.
Everything on the yale website is 20% off for black friday

Yale have pet friendly sesnsors on their website, it's plug and play.
They do, but pushes up the cost of the Yale. The cheapest place I've seen the 3 pack of pet PIRs is Toolstation if anyone needs them.

Don't forget if you have Ring a burglar doesn't know it's fired because apparently ring don't think anyone wants an external bell box.... Yale in the other hand know the home security market well enough to include one as standard because that's the part that's a real detterent
Anyone think this will go any cheaper on Friday or is this likely to be the best we'll see?
This if definitely the system I want at it's the only smart home alarm system with an external bell box and the GPS boundary is useful for someone as forgetful as me

Ring has an extremely loud internal siren that is more than enough to deter burglars and alert the neighbours. True it doesn't have an external box, but I'm going on the theory that burglars are smart enough to look for more than a Yale box outside and also not to stick around with the alarm blaring.

Then you're wrong, many are just opportunistic, they'll look at the front of the house to assess for risks (visible alarm system, CCTV, signs of people or dogs being in etc)
Then the plan will be to get in, grab the common high value stuff and get out quickly, yes an unexpected alarm like ring might make them rush but chances are they'd already planned to hit your living room home entertainment stuff as let's be honest it's easy to find and a reliable source of easy to flog goodies
Even with monitored systems they know they've got a little bit of time so while they weren't expecting an alarm from their Initial assessment they'll still use that time and even if they don't you've still got a broken door/window to deal with. Better to have an active deterrent visible from outside to make them reconsider before they even start.
Thanks OP. Ordered, and paying 40 quid a month for 5 months to spread payment (offered as an interest free option on Amazon), so I can spend more this week and up to Christmas
Price just dropped to £197.99
Same price at B&Q if anyone finds that more convenient. Not sure why, but maybe OAP discount?

How did u get this??? I cant see an option to pay in instalments?

I'm not sure whether they've taken the 'pay in installments' option off, or it's just no longer visible for me now as I've already purchased one. But, it's right above the Add to Basket button on my Amazon mobile app. Like I say, it's not visible for me either, but here's an example with the Echo Show 10 on the mobile site (not app) if it helps

Great Alarm, Alexa enabled also for even easier arming. Part arm option available. Unique codes for each family member (if you want). Sends a text if your arm is armed and a push notification if you arm/ disarm. Bought it 4 months ago, no issues since. I’m very happy with my purchase.
