Saw this on B&Q website, seems darn good deal for £181 off - checking Google it’s the cheapest around. Debating whether to spend the extra pounds for this kit over the smaller Sr-320 version. Not sure when the end date is, they haven’t specified.

Ah sorry mate, will update when I can! - diy.com/dep…prd
Do you get any stickers to advise the burglars which two of your multiple doors and windows have the contacts installed, in order that they will be sure to set the alarm off?
Very expensive. Why not buy the SR-320 for around £250 and then buy the separate components? I'm sure it would end up cheaper than £399. The camera is supposed to be quite poor and the dummy alarm shouldn't cost too much if you really need it
Amazon have matched this price but check out the Amazon reviews

Good idea but even going via Safe - this package is cheaper for what you get instead of mix and matching retailers for best component prices. I’ve bought this one in the end - excited to install.

Let us know how you get on. I'm looking to get the Sr-320 at some point. I don't trust some of the reviews as I believe it's a good product and it's just what I'm looking for
I have the Sr-340+ ( Costco offer 399) was installed September. With it being wireless there are no visuals to tell you it is working -,ie like light up pir or any form of life on the siren box. However , this is to allow for battery life
only the installation manual comes with it - no instruction manual !!
If purchasing the hub is quite small - and there is a requirement to flick a switch on it in order for it to charge - otherwise it will incessantly beep.
Although the app has a nice GUI - it uses Yale terminology to describe how to part arm or fully arm - which I do not find easy to understand or intuitive - which maybe fault on my part , but I do have a few brain cells

I would say set up is a bit of a learning curve to set up, but if you've rooted androids for over many years (and countless bootloops); a "smart alarm" isn't too hard to figure out.

I would only recommend the product if you have the time to understand their logic of installation. Which is intuitive, but not uh.. "normal". It feels like they were constrained by knowledge or money to make it easier for end user.
Bunnings have this for a few pounds cheaper.

Update : only a 15p saving. Sorry

amazon have offers on often with the price less than this. With Yale, you have to bear in mind they may stop support at any time and then you are left with potential junk

Server has been announced to be operational until 2021 - I’ve installed mine and works a treat. Quite cool to link your CCTV and stuff to one hub!

That is the worry, until 2021, so it will work for 4 years (3 if you are pessimistic) but what happens after, given the history of the company will it discontinue server support then or near then. I personally would buy an alarm system that would last at least 10 years, some would argue it should last longer but 4 years is too short
