great price - terrible reviews


Not promising then is it, an alarm that you rely on to protect your property and it has terrible reviews, I will give this a miss. Having said that I have just looked at a couple of the reviews and one person had to pay yale £220 to install the alarm and others who struggled to get it to work with alexa so I guess you can take some of the negative reviews with a pinch of salt.

I’m all for smart products, we have 38 hue bulbs and strips in and around the house but if one of them happens not to come on, it’s not the end of the world but I couldn’t take the risk of this not alerting properly.
Will stick the old school Yale alarms we have.

I’ve got this product installed (following a burglary). Don’t read too much into the reviews - either the people are clueless on how to install and need to play with Lego or they’ve purchased something completely different!

This is a very good product! It was relatively easy to install. I drilled holes to install the sensors - although I read somewhere you can use double sided sticky tape to fit them.

As said earlier, I'd take some of the amazon reviews with a pinch of salt, as many of them seem to be installation related or problems with the app when it was first released. Conversely this alarm has some very positive reviews from some websites online. I think the app side of it will always let this and other Yale products down to a degree though - the tech side isn't really the core of their business so will lag behind the likes of Ring who established as a tech oriented security company from the outset. But then this is cheaper and doesn't cost to run once installed.
I'm still tempted to go for this, but it is the lack of IFTTT and poor app and integration with other products such as their (very average) cameras that is putting me off. Shame, cos in terms of an alarm it's not bad, but in terms of a security eco system it leaves a lot to be desired!
Good price though, so voted hot.
Does anyone have any views on how this compares to the soon-to-be-released Ring Alarm system?
If anyone would prefer pet-friendly PIRs for this, you can get them for 3 for £80 from tool station.

I am not sure I read much into those reviews given I have them installed and they have been faultless so far for me personally. But yes please do what’s best for you
Own this and works without fault. Very convenient to arm on your phone and receive alerts (also a keypad to arm/disarm which I never use).
I used Command strips to position the PIR sensors like I want, so no need to drill and when it is time to change batteries it simple to do. Nice feature is the option to part-arm depending on your needs.
Think £199.99 it is a good deal.

I've had this since launch day (at this price). Setup was very easy, I had zero issues and it all up and running quickly.

There were definitely some initial issues on the Yale side with there servers and how they interacted. The alarm was rendered useless for a few days i.e. unable to arm and disarm. Which obviously caused alarms to trigger and unable to disarm them! This seems to have been resolved now though and I haven't had any issues for several months.

I do like the ability to control from the app, I also really like the hue integration where the lights can flash red if the alarm is triggered.
I have an old Yale alarm and that was a pain to set up but has been fine although changing batteries can be an experience a loud one. Would definitely buy this had it been out at the time of buying my old one. And I think everything is a pain to get set up with Alexa, in my experience anyway, but once it is runs smoothly with no problems.
Hot for the price, but if you have the time/a little more money have a look at the pyronix enforcer - a certain auction site offers them near this price, a proper 2 way communicating system that will last the test of time. Though I would rather have this yale one than no alarm

How much better is this to the older Yale Smart Alarms?
I just bought the Yale smart system the other day on offer at Yale for £190! Arghhh

I have neither and don’t intend to purchase those devices. The Sync does cover 200m range compared to 30m on the older version buy my house is a standard 3bed semi detached.... hmmmm, should i stick to what I’ve got or buy this 1? I could always return the 1 I bought the other day
I have this and works flawlessly. I got installed after being burgled. It works with Hue lights and tbh I can either use the app or the additional key fobs I bought to arm/disarm them. It gives me an email, text and mobile app notification when it is triggered (this goes to three numbers I have put up to alert). They allow numerous points of contacts to notify people and how. The alarm also tells me where in the house it has triggered/sensor. I bought additional window sensors, keypad and two control fobs. I have nest IQ all around my property so I don't need anything fancy on IFTT. This does the job and never had a false alarm. Why anyone would pay to have this installed is beyond me, easy as anything. I have had it around 18 months now. Happy to answer any q's!

I have the older smart alarm and can’t really see much difference from reading up.

They’ve managed to integrate the Philips Hue side of things in to the older one so the only thing I see missing is being able to use Alexa. I would love this feature as I have a goodnight command which controls all my switches/ lights etc.

But I couldn’t justify an upgrade just for that, especially with all the extra components I’ve added over the years (door contacts, panic buttons, smoke alarms, pet friendly PIRs, CCTV).

Hi ModernFamilyUk,
I also have this alarm and have been using it since February. Seems to work fine and I'm happy with it, but could you just clear up a niggle I have. Do you have any lights on on your hub? Should the first light on the network be on and green? I don't have any lights on mine when the system is disarmed even though I thought that according to the manual the network light should be on to show it's connected to the internet. Although the light is off I know it's connected as I can arm/disarm via the app and I also get instant notifications.
Thanks
On the subject of the bad reviews, I reckon poor installation is the cause of many of these. Most people don't know that the PIR sensors shouldn't be pointed directly at windows as this can cause false alarms.

You have Sync? Has it already been out for 2 years...
I've had this for over 6 months and I must say it works flawlessly. The app is a bit crap but since the update at least it looks a bit better. Also pretty simple to install, and the alexa integration is there even though it can be temperamental at times.

Do you have to pay per month to use the smart bits though?

I guess your asking about the pyronix here, so the v10 is the wifi version (think its the newest) and it allows you to use the app. It's free for the first year, and £30 after that - which is well worth it in my eyes. If your a bit techy you could fit it

Yeah I'm tempted, but I've got a 30 years wired system so I may just buy a cheap new wired system and just replace the bits like with like. Choices!

Not sure if allowed to mentioned ebay on here, but there is one for 259 for the full kit, and another for 260 - one comes with 2 remotes, the other with an additional wireless keypad - so depends on your requirements

Just as long as you have 4 core cable, you will be fine either way. Though the pyronix has (I think) 2 onboard hard wire zones, and also the option to use the existing cable going to the alarm box to supply just + and - (only 2 cable needed and simple to wire) the exterior siren - that means no ladders needed to change batteries in future, and also the alternating LEDs on the front of the alarm siren will kick in - alot more professional looking

They are 2 way communicating systems (unlike this yale) which allows each device to talk and update - they can also be graded systems for insurance, depending on install - that alone tells you about the quality of the systems. Well I would rather have a dummy box outside at least, hopefully they will just go next door!

Hmmm, I have installed a non telecoms version of the 320, its very fustrating that the keypad gives no count down timer for example. When you have handled and installed both, you would understand why I say pyronix but it all comes down to technical ability. This yale has a place in the market, but its like comparing night and day.

I’ve been interested in the Pyronix enforcer recently too. Not exactly sure of the major benefits over a system such as this though. Are you able to enlighten please? Happy to pay a bit extra, and still want a wireless system, but don’t want to be tied in to a system where I ‘have’ to pay for use of an app etc. Just want to install and be able to check the system remotely/turn on off/receive alerts. And IFTTT integration would be great so I could potentially link to cameras I have. Many thanks.

Obviously just my opinion, but the pyronix is a system that has been built to last. The yale is fine to scare off potential threats, but cannot be compared to it. Other people recommend the texecom mesh system, so it all depends if you have the time to set it all up. The yale is apple, and the pyronix is android when it comes to customising and features

I think the standard setup of Yale smart systems meets most needs, esp for a standard 3 bed house in the city...
I can’t see how any other system will significantly improve this system!?
Does is still work as standard alarm when power or Wi-fi is off?
