No. In the same way that all other alarms would, the alarm sounds when the cover is removed, or the siren box taken off the wall.
Obviously, once the battery is removed it'll stop. I'd love to see an alarm that can make a noise with no power source...

Depend where you install the outside box.
It will also send a phone call to you to inform you that alarm is going off as well as sounding a alarm internally.
A deterrent is better than nothing

Hence why you mount the alarm in a difficult to reach place, unless you're neighbours don't like you, I'm sure they'll start asking questions why there's a bloke up a ladder messing with your alarm siren....

Great I will know my house is being robbed


And for the times it’s not ringing you you’ll know your house is safe and sound so you can go on your business without wondering if someone is stealing your property

You can take the batteries out of the outside box leaving just a internal alarm. That I believe is the only way.
i'd personally get this alarm as it's much "smarter" y-cam.com/pro…em/

Go to the end of my street!! that one has been going off for an eternity, must have some kind of fusion drive in it! waste of time anyway as the police do not even attend alarms, even when neighbours say it has been going off for a week

Didn’t fancy messing up the walls for wiring in our new build house last year, for the PIR’s and we got this alarm.

Absolutley fanatstic. Set it up in 10 minutes and really easy to add extra pieces of kit such as door sensors, PIR’s and even an extra remote/keypad. Would highly recommend to anyone and a great price.

That was under consideration but due to them screwing over their customers by first advertising no subscription fees and then forcing subscription fees i wouldn't touch anything from this company.
This ycam smart alarm also needs a £99 a year subscription to actually make use of most of the smart features.

I am now considering the honeywell evohome but that has a weird issue of only allowing 1 user have access to the control app.
Yale have one but the reviews of its app are not good so that's off putting, but i already have some yale sensors so it would make sense for me to get that.

I actually have this particular yale system, but i have just moved and am not installing a landline, just broadband so I do need a smart alarm otherwise i would continue to use it. I never had an issue with it in 3 years of use (although the double sided tape they use on the magnetic sensors is very poor quality and fell off on all of them triggering the alarm). Never had a break in to really test but no false alarms which seems the biggest issue with these kits, so hot from me.

Love this Alarm but as been said previously people Ignore alarms.
Alarms have become cosmetic/window dressing,the best form of defence and as old as the hills is a,"Half starved Bulldog ".!

I wouldn't trust anything sold by that company (Y-Cam) ever again. The u-turn they did on the promised free cloud storage with their cameras, coupled with the way they have handled the backlash speaks volumes about how much they care about customers. Look at trustpilot, amazon reviews or their own facebook page to see what ex-customers think of them if you aren't already aware.
I purchased in to ismart alarm system, very good and no false alarms.
Is it jammer proof? (most wirless alarms can be deactivated by a cheap RF blocking device)

Oh dear. Please help us. Move on to the video game posts
I love it when security products are discussed on a forum. “What’s the point, nothing is foolproof, nobody takes notice of alarms” say those who might one day wonder why their house is robbed rather than that of a neighbour.
Was £99 at screwfix about a year ago... Good alarm though

Yes, it's a hundred and twenty nine quid for a sim card equipped two sounder house alarm with remote dial capability. It's CHEAP.

But as others pointed out it's only ever a deterrent.
Got this alarm great piece of kit.
very loud when it goes off.Never had an issue.
you can add the remote fob,more sensors and pri,sand even the Yale smoke alarm.
We have this alarm. I would highly recommend it. Some commenters have posted about it being a deterrent etc, whereas I like it because if there is a break in while we are asleep it will wake us up. The batteries have lasted nearly two years in all the bits of kit as well. Hot from me
Had one of these for over 7 years now never had a problem with false alarms, even have shed and garage linked in,(you can use the old big sensors for these cheap on eBay) allsorts of add ons smoke alarms, flood detectors, remote keypads etc. Battery cover fixing in alarm box will become brittle and mounting holes will snap off after a couple of years or so I never bothered replacing them just gave inside a good spray with WD40.
Any recommendations on the £199 wifi version?

Price is cheap for a reason, Yale alarms aren’t great if u read a lot of the reviews
Hi guys.. my 2 pence worth. I've installed 5 of these in my home and others. I think it's great. Remember NO ALARM will stop you from a professional burglar. Most of these act more a deterrents. Even Simon cowell got burgled with a security guard in the house!

Only thing to consider is if it's worth getting the imported Chinese ones. These are less than half the price with lots more sensors and also GSM mobile calling (put in a cheap PAYG SIM card) ... Have been tempted but never actually bought one.

I completely understand your hesitation, but I think the company just got their business model wrong, and unfortunately had to go back on their word. I do think they overpromised, but don't believe it was to deceive.

I think the product is great and cost effective, I have used the alarm with and without the smart features - it functioned great without the subscription, but i went for the subscription for the peace of mind as with the cameras it's still miles cheaper than the nest offering

give it a go - they have a 30 day money back guarantee!

Personally I can't stand cheap Yale alarms they look cheep and it screams DIY!
I have a wireless system I installed myself 4 years ago which cost £290 and the prices are still the same now. I have had 0 false alarms, 0 issues with any equipment and it has a similar card in that I can control with either an app or by text!
Yes people ignore alarms but it's a great deterrent and I will know if someone is still in my house as it uses a follow feature!
This system may be ok for a garage or shed but spend the extra and get something proper. Just my opinion
Edited by: "crezzy87" 18th Feb
I have had one of thes for 2 years now. I use it every single day, neverhad a false alarm and never been burgled.

More of a deterrent with my CCTV cameras. Hopefully looking down my street burglars see easier targets.

I completely understand, they got their business model wrong, granted, and I was in the same opinion at first, but then I understood what would've been the alternative, rather than continuing and going bankrupt, leaving us all with useless hardware, they apologised and tried again - I still didn't want to pay a subscription, but did for the piece of mind as it was more than a fair price (half the price than nest)
I have one of these alarms fitted about seven years - easy control and reliable as hell, change the siren batteries once a year and you're good. The chirp when an external door is opened is a great feature and i have a seperate garage linked in with no problems. Remember guys,alarms are a deterrent only, most theives are opportunists and all you are trying to do is deter them from yours....

Totally agree. RIP off merchants!
Looking at one of these, what the battery life for the various bits on it?

By the time that had happened the alarm would have made the call.
