Costco had the v2 with chime for £119 including vat. Bought one a few days ago along with the alarm system
I think the problem is, it’s been £120 several times this year, often with a free Echo Dot. Granted, it is a little cheaper than full price, but as Ring Video Doorbell 3 has been officially announced, and it is the same RRP as Ring 2 currently is, this makes this deal far too expensive to consider.
My two cents, having done lots of research to upgrading to smart locks, is that apart from the Yale Conexis there is no other option atm in the UK. Alternative are the Yale keypads or from another company, but they should be used as secondary locks. IMO it is better to wait another 6 months to 12 months to see what new smart locks are launched in the UK. There's alot of good options in the US, and inevitably some will make it over or there will be a homegrown copycat.
Yale has a smart lock called Keyfree connected with physical
keys, which is now disappeared from their website. It's far too expensive
consider the limited functionality it provides and how difficult the software
is to use.
There are plenty international competitors including major
brands likes Samsung, which come with biometric/fingerprint scanner, password,
fob and software/remote authentication, at a much reasonable price. It's just they
don't fit on UPVC doors, which is a shame.
I agree on the basis of things going down and also there should be some physical way of getting in too. Regarding the Echo support it's there now (with additional stuff) but is working, unsure of Google Home though
Quite like the look of this, but not sure if it would look out of place for my front door: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Yale-Keyless-Connected-Smart-Module/dp/B018KHLA0I?th=1 What are people's opinion on this?

Well I suppose you could hide it and then buy the remote to activate/deactivate it. You would still need to have a power supply and telephone line connected to the box though but you would probably be better off just mounting it on the wall or in a cupboard. As for this or the GSM version I'd definitely chose the GSM and use a GiffGaff sim in it.
My tired eyes read "does it detect burgers"
As per comment further up you can get a key fob remote (£16 on Amazon) and you can also get an additional wireless keypad if you prefer. So with these yes you could stash the panel under the sofa. There's a tamper switch on it though so you'd just need to keep the backplate attached to it.
I've been looking for a GSM version for a while now as I didn't want to wire the control box (which I intend to store in hallway closet) to BT line and make it messy with wires etc. However someone recently mentioned to just store the control box under the sofa in living room which is next to the tel line - makes sense lol BUT would I need to access the control panel to activate/deactivate etc? Should I buy a GSM or not? Is £200 a decent price?
Not on this one but you can get a keyfob.

bought this just after Xmas easy to install fast delivery got to wonder why when i posted this exact same deal it got pulled by an administrator saying they didn't have enough feedback on trust pilot but here's the exact same deal :(
Been wondering about something like this or an ip camera that can send notifications and remote viewing etc...
Yale has a range that connects to your router (possibly only via an ethernet cable) and will email, text and send push notifications (I'm not sure whether the push notifications work on Android - they don't for their IP cameras), they are more expensive than the ones that connect to a land line. This is the basic one... http://www.yale.co.uk/en/yale/couk/productsdb/alarms/smart-home-range-/Smart-Home-Alarm-Starter-Kit-SR-310/
Looks a good alarm. Cheers
I see Yale has now added hub and app connectivity to their alarm systems using the same pirs and bell boxes as on this deal. I wonder if the hub can be added to an already existing tele system...
