has anyone got a personal review of these alarms ?

has anyone got a personal review of these alarms ?



I like to know this as well, anyone who got this and how effective they are?

I've had one for the last 9 years rarely get false positives, really good alarm system. Easy to install. Only now is it beginning to play up.... I'm going to replace it with this model.

I bought one 6 months ago. I also bought the option remote key fobs too. System works really well and very easy to fit.

​really good. no false alarms, you can add a key Fob and switch it in/ off just like a car fob.
homebase sold the fobs £15 on sale so it's nice to look around.
screwfix fobs are dear, plus twice I bought the wrong models

I have on too. Easy to install. Took about 2hour to fit everything. I would get extra fobs as the wireless keypad is abit naff. I use it for emergency in a draw, hidden away.

My work moaned at me and said it would be crap, but so far after over a 1 year I have had to change the batteries in 1 sensor. The telephone dial out works well. For the price you won't get better.
The only thing I would say if you are going all out they now do one with fire sensors and cctv built in...
So you get pictures sent to you if the alarm goes off...

Does anyone know if it will work with cats at home ? I have 3 cats and wouldn't want to get false alarms.

I've read in many places that these are very easy to hack..is that right? I'm currently refurbing a property so looking for a decent alarm system whether that be wireless or wired.

If you can adjust the sensitivity then maybe, but you'll be vulnerable to cat burglars.

They can easily be effected by interference either intentionally or unintentionally so much so that the manufacturer recommends in the instructions to turn the 'jamming' detection function off. Also as these are 1 way wireless rather than 2 way this makes the above even more important when deciding what to choose.

If you are refurbing a place then run wires, no brainer really.

might have some info on there

so how many of those sensors do you get for the rooms?

I sold this to a fitter last week for £105, he was gutted to have missed out on the last deal these guys had on this. His customer wanted a cheap reliable unit, and this is what he went for. His opinion of it was high.

is this wireless only or do you have the option to go wired or wireless? refurbing a place too and want to replace the alarm system so could be good timing.

I can vouch for this alarm, I purchased it as soon as I moved into my new house last year. I installed it in next to no time with limited DIY experience. The system is fairly configurable and the addition of the phone out feature make this a no brainer.

do you know how much for more sensors?

This system is wireless only, if your spending good money to refurb a place then don't skimp to save a few quid on a 'cheap DIY' alarm. Get a decent Grade 2 wired alarm, they're not actually that expensive and if you must have wireless again get a Grade 2 that will also be 2 way wireless communication although a decent wireless alarm are not that cheap.

I don't get it:

- you have a alarm which will go off when someone's already in the house!
- deterrent I get it. But most house burglaries are planned so no use there.
- you still have no idea who burgled your house to recover items.

Just by 2 canaries and u get the same alarm feature but also HD VIDEO

£99 each.

Still hot for a home alarm system cheapest I've seen. But just think there are better things on the market for around the same price.

what does two way wireless mean in practice? and grade 2 means?

thanks

what does two way wireless mean in practice? and grade 2 means? thanks


2 way wireless: control panel 'talks' to the detector and the detector 'talks' back.
1 way wireless: detector talks to the panel only so the panel can still be set even though a detector may be missing/broken etc.

Have one, bought for £160 two years back from screwfix, easy to install, works a treat. No false alarms.

We have an alarm (not a yale, a Scantronic), which phones me (via GSM) the second an alarm goes off. I can then go onto my phone, check the CCTV, and call the police. Within 1 minute of my alarm going off, I can be on the phone to the police even if I'm nowhere in the area.

We had this kit at our old house, and while it's good, it's nowhere near as good as some of the pro kit out there. If you're technically minded, and don't mind fiddling for a day/running wires, you could easily pick up a 9651 unit for this price.

This is a good price for a wireless alarm but do remember it's one way wireless. I got the Pyronix Enforcer in the end as it's two-way wireless but that's double the price. If you can afford the extra I'd go for a two way wireless but this is certainly better than having no alarm at all.

Good price, heated.

Only any use if it has GSM back-up. Any 'decent' burglar will cut off the broadband/internet/telephone lines before entering.

Old skool (wires) is still the best (_;)

Utter ****, for real security products get in touch with a security installer - this is like getting a £70 rip off iPhone. It can still make calls and text but plays up, is slow etc.
You are talking about your personal safety of yourself and family! Don't be stupid people!

OK as a cheap deterrant. Useless as an actual security device. Very nearly bought one last time a deal came up but when with a local security installer, have a 5 minute chat with one and youll see why you dont want it.

I bought one after being burgled two years ago. It was mainly as a deterrent.
I was burgled again three months ago, broke in through a window I did not have a sensor on (it does now!). They tripped the PIR sensor and the device called me alerting me whilst sounding the alarm. The alarm sacred the thieves off as my neighbours, who were alerted by the alarm, saw them running away. My system now has 10 sensors on it rather than the original 4 - and I was able to fit them myself.
So it DOES work. I lost nothing in that burglary! Im not sure what the previous comments are referring to but this is an easy to install alarm that can be scaled up. The sensors are all tamper proof and I can state they this function works week as I accidentally set it off the other week but not fixing the sensors on securely enough after getting some work done to my windows.
In addition to this, one of my original PIR sensors caused two false alarms. I contacted Yale who sent me a replacement out free of charge - without requiring the faulty unit be returned first.
This might not be a fully monitored solution that send Group 4 round to check on your house after an activation but the difference in price between the two is vast. This is most certainly a decent system for what it does.

Are you perhaps a security installer ...........................

has anyone got a personal review of these alarms ?



Had mine for 2.5 years, I ended up buying an additional sensor as two wasn't enough. A key fob can be used to switch the alarm off once you walk through the door which is handy if the panel is a long way from the front door. Each fob and sensor needs to be paired with this device one at a time and each is given a unique security code so no one can just buy a fob and use to disable alarm. I doubt it would be easy to hack.

It was easy to set up as it comes with a DVD with video instructions. I need to replace sensor batteries about every 14 months but it will notify you when a sensor needs replacement batteries. I now need to replace my main box batteries after 2.6 years but it has never been activated except during test cycles. You can set it up to call you to tell you it was activated assuming you can connect the main panel to a phone jack (main panel needs a permanent connection to a power socket), so I also set up a web cam for about £30 and if it every goes and it rings me I will connect to my web cam to verify if someone is in the house, and if need be call the police (you can also switch off the alarm remotely by calling you own home and entering the witch off code using the phone dial pad.. The advantage over wired is that in a power cut the alarm is still active so in many senses this could be safer than a wired alarm imo. Overall a brilliant no fuss concept.
