Thinking of buying this as it seems like a lot of kit for the £.

The system seems to be the Yale Smart Alarm SR-340, however this is the PLUS version so you get 2 key fobs and an extra smart plug thrown in - see full list of items below:

1 x Smart Hub
1 x Siren
1 x Dummy Siren
2 x PIR Motion Detectors
1 x PIR Image Camera
2 x Door/ Window Contacts
2 x Smart Plugs
1 x Key Pad
2 x Key Fobs
Fixing Pack
Batteries

Per my Google searches (etc.) the price is amazing given what the below as charging for the NON PLUS kit:

1) Amazon, £475 - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Yale-Smart-Home-Alarm-Control/dp/B01I549W92

2) Safe.co.uk, £449 - safe.co.uk/pro…tml?ACODE=googlebase&gclid=CPWE7LbI9tMCFcKfGwod65oE_g

3) Maplin, £495.99 - http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/yale-smart-home-alarm-view-and-control-kit-a77wb

4) B&Q, £580 X) - http://www.diy.com/departments/yale-wireless-smart-home-view-control-alarm-kit-sr-340/1512054_BQ.prd?ecamp=Seapla&ppc_type=shopping&ds_kids=92700020178957502&gclid=CPyihrPI9tMCFcG7GwodJZcJuA&gclsrc=aw.ds.ds&dclid=CKvZp7PI9tMCFZIK0wodSMsIFg

So all in all I think this is a good price but I'm open to being shown the light by all you HUKDer's - please provide a link to a better deal for the same product when you vote cold! X)

Hi knee1978,

See below from Yale Website User Manual - short answer, yes you need internet but via wired connection, not wifi.

Smart Hub 2.0
• This Smart Hub is the brains of your Smart Home Alarm System. All accessories wirelessly connect to the Smart Hub.
• Ensure it is hidden from view.
• Access to mains socket and broadband
internet router required.

How does the SmartPhone Alarm operate if my broadband goes down? If your alarm disconnects from the Internet for any reason, it will temporarily cease to alert you via email and/or SMS when triggered. The email and SMS function is only intended as a secondary alert; until the broadband connection is reinstated, the system will continue to alert to intrusion via its primary method: a siren sounding.

Return To Top

How does the SmartPhone Alarm operate if there is a powercut? If the router has no power, then the user will not be sent an SMS or email alerting of an intrusion, as they usually would be. However, the panel on the alarm system has a back-up battery to ensure continued operation during a power outage, via its primary method of alert (a siren sounding). The email and SMS function is only intended as a secondary alert; until the power is reinstated, the system will continue to alert to intrusion in its primary function as an auditory alarm.

Return To Top

What if there is no mobile coverage to notify me by SMS or email when my alarm is triggered? The system will still sound its siren (its primary method of alert), regardless of whether you receive SMS or email notification.

Return To Top

Will the system call me when the alarm is triggered? No. The Smart Phone Alarm system alerts to intrusion primarily through its auditory siren, while email and SMS notifications are a secondary precaution*. You can set up VIP mail (iOS) and Priority mail (Android) so that your phone will give a full ringtone upon receiving an email from report@yalehomesystem.co.uk * Please Note: Due to network traffic or weak mobile signal, users may experience a delayed or lost SMS message. This is only intended as a secondary method of alert.

great price. Accessories such as additional pir's very reasonably priced to extend kit if needed. have some heat..

How easy are these to fit.? Is it a diy or an engineer

Very easy, no wiring etc. however, please review the link to the user manual above and see if the steps look challenging to you as I appreciate that what could be easy/DiY for one person might be rocket science for another. Cheers

I got it. Some interesting reviews on Amazon on app security and yale server

I have this alarm. Brilliant bit of kit. I have the photo sensors, 1 covering the front door and one covering the kitchen. So many times the Mrs forgets to disarm it and my phone goes nuts saying the alarm has been triggered and then a photo of the Mrs looking all dopey on my phone. *

in my recent experience these systems are only as good as your local police, a friend caught someone breaking into his house to steal car keys, informed authorities, police turned up a few days later to sort out the crime reference for the insurance, nothing more. when he offered them the cctv footage they declined. its sad that budget cuts have left the police forces so thin that crimes like this just go unchecked now. Not blaming the officers as there is clearly a lack of resources, so crimes like this just end up getting pushed to the bottom of the pile. The vehicle was never recovered.

still voted hot tho

​Quite often people have a whole load of footage that doesn't give any clue to identity. Whilst its interesting for most people to see masked gloved shadowy figures moving around the perimeter of a building, particularly if its yours, often filmed from above, it doesn't mean much to the police. They need images that show faces. Generalizing a little, but for crimes such as burglaries that how it is. CCTV has to be reviewed in real time, takes lots of manpower/manhours on say a murder, but generally on 'lesser' crimes that can't be afforded and only relevant bits of footage are needed.

wish it had iftt

I have just suffered a burglary in the last few days. I have some CCTV cameras fitted on the outside of my home already but no recording unit, I have also just bought some of the Xiaomi ip cameras for inside. Can anyone recommend a decent alarm system which would connect everything together (sounds like iftt might do this) and also provide a decent alarm with window / door / motion sensors and a loud siren to deter thieves? I am open to any suggestions or ideas at all.

did you get much discount on your house insurance for having this fitted?

Haven't told them to be honest

Does this give an audible bleep when you enter your home to remind you to disarm? I recall comments on cheaper Yale units that they gave no warning, which put me off.
