This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

I have one of the old Easy Fit kits and, for what they are, they're brilliant. This is one of the newer units with a wireless hub so you can control it via an app.

The kit comes with 1x wall contact, 2x PIR sensors, 1x keypad, 1x hub & 1x alarm.

Cheapest price it's been on Amazon and next best price (other than eBay) is >£200.

Might have to go to alternative sellers to pick up the Amazon price but it is there!

The Electronic Frontier Foundation found the Ring app was "packed" with third-party tracking, sending out customers' personally identifiable information.

The ring alarm system also uses a Ring app.

That's a very naive way to think. Ring as a company will happily sell your data and potentially use your data for things you do not consent.

So do other companies, just that Ring is such a large company a bigger spotlight is cast on them. l would rather pay ring alarm prices than adt anyday. l think it naive to think that Ring is the only one to do it.

I’ve also had this alarm system for 3 years now and it’s been spot on. I bought most parts separate but I believe this is a good price for the kit. You can buy extras off eBay etc people always selling them, I even found a dummy siren for deterrent.

Only just replaced the PIR motion sensor batteries last week.

I’ve also linked it to my HUE lights.

App has been updated a year or so ago and it’s improved a lot.

Had chance to test and keep ring alarm before it was rolled out but couldn’t justify ditching my yale.

Can recommend
Get the latest Yale smart alarm range which is much better than this old SR range.

Hi, in yales website i found a comparison to the sync, and it said both connect the hue and google, iv just spoke to yale on the phone and she said 100% the sr doesnt connect to hue or google, can you confirm it does, cheers.39811744-GfFd0.jpg

Just taken a screenshot of my take app, it says my hue account is connected and its set up so as to turn all lights red when alarm sounds. Haven’t been burgled thank God yet so can’t verify if they turn oh in that event but i remember testing a bulb via the Yale app upon setup and via the test the bulb lit red.

Ok, cheers, i may just get the ai version as it looks better and yale confirmed it deffo works, cheers.
If you have the easy fit kit with the telephone communications panel, the new smart hub should be compatible and straight swap
Buy the IA range instead!
There's no integration with Google Home on the older systems (can't speak for the newer ones) but it will email on alarm arm, disarm and sound events. I have emails sent to a forwarder that hits a webhook so I can use the status in other services eg IFTTT. I've emailed Yale many times to make a simple addition to their app that would allow this integration more easily - they're not interested.

There's a nice Python script that can log in to the Yale servers and get status, switch the alarm on/off etc. I use this script with Node-red and as that also integrates with Google Home the alarm could be armed/disarmed from there relatively easily. This does require some extra software and messing though as outlined.

Hope this helps.

KEYPAD BATTERY REPLEMENT QUESTIONl

Hi. We too have this alarm. It was telling us the keypad battery needed replacing, so my hubby did so and broke it. Have you changed yours yet? By design, attempting to get the old battery out seems almost impossible without breaking it. I am wondering if you or anyone else has had this issue? The battery holder is a tiny compartment attached to the motherboard at the + and - points, and this seems your lot. The battery is so snug you cant take it out by hand unless we are missing something? We have had a replacement sent by amazon but do not want the same thing happening in 6 months when the keypad battery needs changing again. Anyone else had this or repalced their keypad battery sucessfully?

Amazing! I replaced my battery in the keypad this week and managed to break it. Had to solder the battery holder back on.
As a 3 year user of this system, it's bloody awful. The app is slow and clunky, it is not user friendly at all. PIRs break to easily, changing batteries Is a faf. Appreciate milage may vary but our batteries need changing constantly. It does our head in. Also, customer service has been shocking each time I've used it.

Currently looking to get away from this awful system. This may be because we are novices in this arena. I am very good with computers, but terrible at DIY.
In a nutshell, easy as pie when it works, but not easy to sort out when it doesn't!

Ok so we havnt needed to change the keypad battery but since you guys have mentioned your experiences , I’m getting abit sweaty about it. We’ve had it for nearly 3 years now so obv not using it as much as you lot.

I’ll try watching a YouTube vid on it if there’s one around just to give me a heads up - don’t want to be breaking anything lol

What battery does it take so you know?

Thought I’d prepare myself early lol
It takes CR2032 - worth getting some in from eBay or Amazon as they are expensive on the High Street (although Poundland used to have some I think). I would hold down the plastic casing with fingers and prise the battery out with a flat head screwdriver in future I think. If you don't hold it down firmly it will come off the board in my experience.

This is the first time I've changed the keypad battery in the 4 years I've had mine - used daily. My PIR had false positive issues some time ago so I just isolated that. It's still on the wall and I never bothered to replace. The app works fine although the layout is poor and it could do more - I never use it other than for rare setup/maintenance. Happy with the system although wish it integrated with other online platforms better - which the newer model supposedly does.

Sorry if i wasnt clear. Yes im talking the PIRs (I have 3) and door contacts (i have 2). They always fail/run out of battery. Youd think they were streaming 4k video. I dont own the keypad, either that or we never used it hah

Not just us then. It would seem there is a design flaw here. Although amazon replaced it (well, they sent me a whole new system, in which I am not replacing the whole thing, just going to send the new system back with my broken keypad) I am going to message Yale about this as we cannot be the only ones - surely not right them knowingly selling something that break as soon as you replace the battery which should be around the warranty runs out I'd Guess, as they say 12 months - though our battery only lasted 6 months, so guess in that respect we've been lucky.

Well, to be fair I did contact them within a year of setting up my system ( thats about 2 years ago now) requesting to reload my 50 text messages that I get once a ‘forced entry’ is detected and they actioned my request and loaded my texts up again.
I think I emailed them , can’t remember exactly. But that’s all I’ve contacted them for.

With regards to keypad battery replacement I found this vid on YouTube ,



keypads not exactly same as mine is white and square shaped but maybe it’s the same setup underneath
Just had my order cancelled Did anyone manage to get this?
