very good but sting in tail
20 Aug 2015
By fatthinslim

" Very good alarm. easy to follow instructions and setup. depending on internal brick walls or plasterboard signal from pirs and door sensors canbe between 5 to 9 which is ok. have had this alarm 3 years now and not once has it had a false alarm. PIRs go to sleep if they detect something as they have done their job , saves battery life. as for battry life the pirs use 3 AAA and last around 18months realistically. the door sensors use 2032 and only like duracell as other brands show up as low battery on the panel.
and as for the siren with no LED or chirping during arm/disarm the 4 D cells only last a 12 month not 2-3 years as manufacturer stated. the siren chirps twice then 3 times on arming and disarming to notif you they need changing, bit of a pain getting to the siren to replace them but worth it.
lots of options and setting and have been very happy with . only complaint is yale should have made the siren have a solar cell option on the front so could use rechargable D type cells for longer use before replacement.
Can really recommend this alarm and is easy to setup by anyone, even those who can just about manage a shoe lace can do this. gives you peace of mind that it will phone a desired number to tell you if there is an alarm. "

Fantastic alarm kit
9 Jul 2015
By GoldGriff
, Dudley, West Mids
" This really is a great piece of kit. So easy to fit, as the name implies, the only tricky part was climbing up the ladder to fit the siren! I bought an extra PIR for upstairs and two key fobs for my wife and me. Configuration is comprehensive and covers just about everything that you would need. The sensors can even have their own names. Beware when testing the control unit - the siren is VERY loud !! "

Security made childs play.
21 Apr 2015
By Alex146

" Firstly the Screwfix price was by far the lowest I could find.
The product was well packed and each part was easily identifiable. The instructions are clear and NOT Chinglish.
Previously having to install a wired alarm I had bad feelings about a new, replacement system. What a dream this one was. Everything worked straight from the box. The best way to site the PIRs was to stick them up with Blu-tac and check the system signal strength. Then check that the PIRs would detect movement, before permanent fixing. I also bought two key fobs, these allow my partially sighted partner to easily use the house alarm without having to worry about typing in numbers. Adding them to the system was so easy and quick.
Our home system is now like a car system. One button 'locks' up one lets us back in. An absolute doddle!

Great Alarm, easy to install
14 Apr 2015
By Anonymous
, Cannock
" I purchased this alarm to upgrade one in a new house that I moved into due to the existing not being compatible with Pet PIR sensors.
Easy to setup and install direct from the box with the devices that come in the bundle already configured too. Purchased additional alternative PIR's (Pet Friendly) from an alternative supplier as Screwfix don't stock them anymore even though they are in the catalogue. However, once they had arrived, the menu on the system was easy enough to follow to remove and add devices as quick as clicking a few buttons.
Great additional products available too, I purchased the EF-KP Remote Keypad with this so that the main unit could be installed within a cupboard space next to a socket and also telephone line without wires and cables being on show all the time, a lot neater install in my opinion, hence why I have only given 4*s on features as I think this should be an option to buy as standard or a bundle pack. However, this definitely wouldn't stop me from recommending or purchasing again. "

Lives up the the easy fit name
8 Oct 2014
By Phippsy1985
, London
" I bought this alarm as the reviews had been quite good and didn't want an alarm with expensive monthly bills. I have no experience fitting alarms but found this easy and all is working as it should. Over the last month have had no false alarms.
Tips for installation
1. Read the instruction several times and carefully place PIR sensors that are not going to be above radiators or looking at windows. Alao for pet PIRs as we have don't face then at stairs.
2. Check all sensors on a walk through after installation and make sure they pick you up. We had one sensor in the small landing that didn't have enough room to pick us up. Fixed this by increasing the sensitivity on the PIR.
3. Get a upstairs controls panel so that you can part arm the system at ni the ght. Also installed panic buttons out of sight in bedrooms.
This system has done everything asked of it and to date the cat has not set it off. Well worth the money, but guess only an attempted burglary will tell us if it really works. "

" Arrive the next day. Very easy to fit. Works beautifully. Only one thing, do need to read the manual several times before starting to fit. Items on page 20 of manual you need to know before you to start to install. Yale customer service very friendly and helpful. Call them if you have a question. "

Fantastic Wireless Alarm
28 Jun 2014
By Jeniflower
, Stockton on Tees
" Really easy to set up and install. We haven't installed the siren outside yet but the internal siren is INCREDIBLY loud.
The control unit is smart and discreet, one of the main reasons we bought this kit as most of the others on the market had big bulky panels.
We've ordered a wireless keypad to use upstairs to set the alarm at night and also 2 extra PIR's for added coverage.
Overall very happy so far!

Easy fit - Yes it was!
17 Jun 2014
By UnluckyAlf
, Cambridge
" After being broken into the week before, I decided to invest in an alarm. This system was recommended to me by a friend who had the earlier model and was pleased. Screwfix offered the best deal. (including the large stores) I do a bit of DIY and it took just 3 hours to fit and it works well. When I received a follow up from the police forensic team, they mentioned it is a system they recommend.
- One tiny tip - when screwing on the door contact, 4 screws are provided...make sure you use the 2 round heads on the magnet and the 2 countersinks inside the transmitter otherwise it doesn't close fully...but that is just a minor point, but not mentioned anywhere in the instructions.
So, it was all there, easy to fit and works well....can't understand how that happened as normally something goes wrong!

Wireless Upgrade Really Works

By Ndmerc

" Already had a wireless Yale alarm which actually prevented a burglary so already a fan. The original one died after a thunderstorm so this is a replacement and an upgrade. Simple to fit, simple to set, does the job and rings you if you connect it to a phone line, overall a great buy! "

a superb alarm with screen
12 Jun 2014
By waky01
, wakefield
" this alarm show you any fault codes, batter warning and rings 3 numbers.
it is cheaper than other alarms. I have since bought a grey logo key fob as the yellow log is not compatible.
you may need to buy a extra pir too. the instructions are really good and yale have a landline contact number.
would recommend as both alarm prices go up and down

" Very easy to fit, the only wires are the phone and power to the control unit. All the sensors seem to work well though the kit is small for a three bed house, I have bought an extra PIR and door contact. "
