"Got this to replace aging wired alarm which had become unreliable. Supplied over the counter after ordering online, took all of 2 minutes in the shop! Supplied well packaged and everything seems to be well made and of a quality finish. Decided to read through the instructions before starting the install and a good job I did. The booklet does explain everything but the layout and terminology could be better. After reading through the confusing bits a couple of times and watching the supplied videos (the one section I really needed wouldn't play but I found it on YouTube) I sorted out what they meant. It's really worth spending the time on this as it makes the actual install a snip. Yale should consider including a glossary of terms for the non professional alarm fitter. Fitted and programmed in around 5 hours including removing the old system. All features tested and work fine though the volume on the recorded telephone messages could be higher, hence the 4 stars on the features - no point in having a feature like that if you can hardly hear it and there's no volume control. Too early to tell on reliabilty or battery life but no reason to suspect it won't be as claimed. Altogether, I'm pretty impressed."
"As a DIY-er you're always likely to worry about installation. Installing this system was very easy. Watch the video, read the instruction booklet cover to cover then go back to page 1 & start again this time following the instructions. Actual installation time was less than 2 hours & I am by no means a DIY genius I assure you. The features of the product are great including multiple alarm codes (for different people), setting multiple phone numbers for alerts and setting & resetting remotely by mobile phone. Now trying to figure out whether there's an accessory for connecting to the Android App I stumbled across?"
"This was a really easy alarm to fit and excellent value for money. As we have dogs at home we did not use the motion sensors but purchased extra door and window detectors they are so easy to add to the system and provide great protection. We also added these to our out houses. Overall this is a great product."
"A very easy and intuitive kit to fit, and can be fitted and tested in under 2 hours. Although fairly straight forward the instructions could be written a little better. My only niggle would be that it would be nice to have some various size blocks/spacers in the kit for the contact door switches, as there are many different shapes and sizes of windows and doors which means that the door and frames aren't always parallel/level with each other.Therefore blocks/spacers had to be made to ensure the sensor and magnets aligned correctly. Other than that, this is a very good kit, that is easy to fit, and provides very good performance for a very good price."
"I set aside a weekend to install and set up. Couldn't believe it but from start to finish took 4 hours. Admittedly I was lucky with power and phone jack being within easy reach of where I wanted to locate the base station, but everything was so simple. Highly recommended."
"We bought two of these alarm systems the day we were burgled - the police believed the burglars would return and we desperately needed to get some sort of system in place. This kit went up very quickly, is very flexible and managed to cover a lot of our premises, which are scattered over 3 acres, so the range is amazing. It works brilliantly, the alarm is very load and the phone call feature is brilliant. We have been incredibly impressed. Cannot comment on the reliability as we have only had it a couple of days."
"Had this alarm fitted for 4 years. Siren batteries last around 2 years and pirs d/c last about 3 years. It is set everyday and has never been unreliable. It is very loud ...a couple of things missing ...It would be great if when arming at night you could have a lower volume countdown and i think the siren should be two way technology ...but yeah this goes off when tested and compared to my two wired alarms in previous houses it is more reliable. Good stuff."
"Bought this as a replacement for my 20 year old Yale alarm system. It was easy to fit, and the telecommunicating system is a great addition, meaning that I know if my alarm should sound when I am out.
Shame Screwfix don't stock all the accessories, but found them easily through the internet."
"this kit is excellent quality and top spec for the price. i am a retired alarm engineer, as my health is not as good these days, i bought this kit for its easy wire free installation. looks good, sleek and proffesional. would defo recommend."
"Due to the fact that there had been reports of several burglaries in my area, I decided to make the decision to purchase a house alarm, not only to protect my home, but my family too. Having never purchased one before I did a little research and the Yale alarm sets repeatedly came up with some very good reviews. I decided to buy the HSA6400 as it was a completely wireless slution and would save me a lot of time and expense having it fitted. When I opened the box, all necessary parts were available, PIR's, window/door switches, alarm control panel, main siren and a dummy siren. For my house the included detectors/switches are perfectly sufficient although I will probably upgrade to add more if needed. Following the very comprehensive instructions carefully, I was able to fully install the alarm and have it working within an hour. Testing was very easy, setup was easy and everything is now protected. If you are looking for a low budget decent house alarm, this has to be one of the best options out there. Pro's - Easy to install, ample included detectors/switches, good quality components, ability to add further devices, very very loud! Con's - Batteries!! (Although the unit tells you which sensor is low battery within a month of it completely draining)"
"Never installed an alarm before so apprehensive, however after this I would certainly do it again. Spent loads of time reading instructions and getting use to terminology. Took my time and linked everything up on the kitchen table before hand. Linking siren was a little troublesome but after a few attempts locked in. Once all linked up was easy to install all the devices around the property. Wireless range is fantastic and easily covers the outbuilding. Furthest device away from control box is about 30m. Great product and saved me money on installing myself. Its now been up and running for a week and no issues at all. time will tell hence 4 stars. Really simple to use."
"I brought Yale alarm for my 3 Beds house. it's fairly easy to install for DIYers. The instructions are easy to follow. Cannot tell you more about Reliability as I would like to see how is works over the next few months"
"Item very easy to install. price great value for money. Instructions very easy follow. Would recommend after anyone has been burgled. It gives you peace of mind, and puts the burglers off from returning."
"Excellent piece of kit ! The alarm system is brilliant. Easy to set up and expand onto the system with ease!
Many features and wire free is the way forward!
Fortunately I've been able to utilize the system with E-controller and clone the RF 433mhz Key fob programmed into my yale alarm system panel. My E controller transmits the frequency and is located inside the house. Now I can remotely access my alarm with the use of a App on my phone.
So my partner has 1 key fob and I use my mobile phone to Arm/Home arm/unlock. Otherwise buying 2 key fobs is expensive.
