"This is a great value alarm, highly visible, good strong sound when activated. Installation advice was comprehensive and nice and easy to follow, even the wife understood most of it! A good backup number to call if you were to get in any difficulties with the installation - but wasn't needed. Plenty of extras to expand the system if required - particularly impressed with the smoke alarm. Glad we purchased this alarm."
"Eventually got around to buying this system after reading various reviews and recommendations for wireless alarm systems. The instructions were easy to follow and I had the system installed and working within a couple of hours of picking it up from the store. The wife is happy with it, no damage done to the house while installing it and simple enough to use. I even purchased the remote key fob to keep it even simpler. A great product"
"Bought this in Black Friday (end Nov) and carried out install over a number of weekends rather than in one go. Watch the DVD then read the manual then it will all become clear including the terminology. I added a keyfob which also has a panic button too.
I also purchased self adhesive mini trunking to conceal wires after install and now looks really beat. It needs to be installed near a power source and phone line so it will ring up to 3 numbers with your own recorded message.
Allows up to 4 different PIN numbers for different family members.
Having a second dummy box was also great as I know people who've invested in other alarms and only have one master siren box.
Only downside is the internal siren and bleeps are loud and can't turn down you can only disable. So when setting for home arming, I've got my thumb over the speaker so as not to wake the dead! Not sure why you need a countdown with bleeps when setting for home arming anyway - just arm the system without an unnecessary countdown!
I have bought a second one as my mum was burgled a week ago (first week Jan, you dirty low-life's) So now have to fit hers and my next door neighbour is also purchasing then same and wants me to help them install theirs too.
"As a single mum it's extremely important that I protect my home and family with reliable security. My next door neighbours had an attempted break in which pushed me to finally getting this system installed. I didn't do it myself but I was told it was surprisingly easy by the man who did. Make sure you have spare batteries as it makes a intermittent beep on main control pad when a sensor is running low, till you swap over batteries. I have had this system for 4yrs and I can count on one hand the amount of times it has gone off in the night. It could have been a spider walking across the sensor I guess and yes it is very loud. I love the key ring fob to set and unset at night but I agree that a volume control on the countdown blips would be very welcome as I hold my breath most nights praying it doesn't wake my child."
"We needed an alarm system for our conservatory and did not want the mess of all the wiring that comes with conventional alarms.The kit is easy to install and easy to set up. The only tricky part if you can call it that is installing the outside bell. The system blends in well with the decor. The only gripe if there is one is that the batteries that are supplied are not top quality. Other than that I would highly recommend this system to any one."
"A nicely boxed product. Understandable setup info with cd. Keypad looks good on the wall. All the fixings supplied you will need. Will purchase extra detectors to give cover required. Certainly a great buy."
"Very happy with this kit as it provides you with a good starting point to protect your home. Length of the cable on the power adaptor could be a bit longer, the wall socket really needs to be right below where you are going to mount the control unit. I had to fit a single spur socket closer to the unit. Setting up on the kitchen worktop first while watching the DVD on a laptop made configuration easy, although the dvd would not play on the TV / DVD combo unit. Used the paper manual to customise system with advanced settings, had no problems understanding any of the printed instructions. Purchased extra door contact and PIR to give me good cover. Can always add more sensors in future as required. Overall, very pleased with purchase."
"This Yale system is excellent value for money and it has some superb features (incl. the ability to arm/disarm by phone and to receive alerts on up to 3 telephone numbers). Very easy to install; has a smart control panel with intuitive operation. I've got some very thick walls but the wireless signal still gets through. The external siren is VERY loud as is the internal alarm which may drive away intruders. Wear ear defenders while fitting the siren! Now ordering extra sensors."
"Bought this after a recent break in, was a little bit bolting the stable door after the horse had bolted!. Well impressed with the price and the product. Read the instruction manual, and found it all pretty straight forward. Took longer to install only because the British weather stopped me mounting the outside boxes. Love the fact this is modular and can be added to at a later date, with more sensors as needed. A very few negatives, no quick alarm set function and no chance to control the volume of the exit / entry beeps. But that's really me being a bit picky. Overall... reliability, not had time to assess that yet, so that's why it gets a 3. Value for money yes. Quality built, easy to install even for a novice."
"Got this alarm after moving in to a refurbished property. No wires is a great invention. Within 15 minutes I had the alarm fitted and programmed. Door chime on entry was a great selling point for me. If you are looking for an easy to fit no fuss alarm system that looks and performs well then this alarm is a must."
"Bought this on the recommendation of reviews. Fitted by my brother, an ex alarm engineer, who was very impressed with how easy it was to set up, and no running cables through lofts and cavities etc. Up and running in a couple of hours. Can't comment on reliability at present."
"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."
