"This simple to install kit (most of it is wireless) was put up and working in a couple of hours. It has door (x2) and proximity detectors (x2) , an access control pad and two alarm boxes. One of these is a dummy, but you cannot tell which is which! Once installed. it is easily programmed with an access code and when you lock up, its a 'one touch' set. A timer lets you exit the building before the alarm goes 'live'.
If you set it off, I swear it would wake the dead!
Once triggered, the alarm then calls the owner to advise of the event - you can even set it up to call the police!
For the price...and ease of installation, this is a simple domestic (house, garage, shed etc) or small commercial unit, which does a great job.
I was so impressed, I bought a second one for another outbuilding.
Happy customer and would recommend the unit to anyone."
"A great security alarm. I sorted out all the setting ie: codes, phone numbers etc and double checked that all worked before doing any fitting, this paid off as I had made a mistake in programming. Once every thing was ok, I began with the door contacts, then PIRs, testing each one after fitting, finally I fitted the siren ensuring the tamper was depressed, all items checked again OK. I recommend going through all components and instructions on a table together before any attempt to fit, take your time, its well worth it. As an average DIY man I would recommend this alarm."
"yep lots of people fitting Yale alarms these days, step by step instructions, common inexpensive batteries, said to last 2 years ...we shall see...Hard part is working out where to site everything.[not] I'm even thinking of putting an extra sensor outside in the van. Its less then 30 meters from control unit. will have to see if the signal is blocked by the metal panels."
"Normally when you read reviews and the feedback is that it's easy, you find thats not the case. However, if you follow the instructions one step at at time then this really straight forward to install.
The only issue I have with it is the speed of response on the main controller keypad. When you're trying to silence an alarm trigger it doesn't always pick up the key presses when you're trying to enter the pin code.
"About the best value around that I could find for this price range and Yale is a name I trust for reliability, Works well for the 30 metre range as our sheds nare on the limit range wise but still registers positively with the control box. No wires and easy to install with fully explanational cd and pamphlet. Very happy with this with plans to expand the system later."
"Had mine fitted about a year ago. Easy install and setup. For the sirens I got a mate to screw in as I am not comfortable with heights.
Not had to replace any of the batteries yet and not one false alarm.
The most impressive thing is if the alarm works when you need it most and it did. My home was broken into a few weeks back, the burglars managed to take a glass panel out of the back door without setting the door sensor off but as soon as they stepped into the living room the motion sensor detected them. I know all this because the control panel tells you which sensor and what time it is triggered.
The control Panel had telephoned me and I informed the police. the burglars actually ripped the control panel off the wall but no damage to the panel only the screws that came out of the wall, they tried to smash it by kicking it but didn't get anywhere.
All in all very impressive and it save my home from being completely trashed.
I will be investing in more sensors for the downstairs window in case they are removed somehow so the alarm goes off before they get into the house."
"Very good alarm with lots of features at a good price, with a dvd good clear information on how to fit. fitted in one day, reason for four stars in value, I have three doors, so had to get an extra door contact, and turn off the PIR detectors as I have pets."
"Excellent value alarm, packed with features that you would only expect to see on a more expensive system. Incredibly easy to set up, programme and customise for your house - I set mine up and even renamed the sensors in an hour. Bought mine with a remote key fob, which is absolutely brilliant, and makes arming and disarming the system as easy as your car alarm. The only slight downside is that the accessories, additional sensors etc are expensive, but are very easy to incorporate into the system and expand coverage."
"Brilliant system completely wirless very easy installation accompanied with easy read instructions And even a DVD if you not sure. Room and door sensors are well made and come with sticky pads so no need for drilling and screwing, alarm is bright and loud, just what you want from an alarm.
Only downside is that if you have animals the sensors cannot be adjusted."
"i purchased this system and was dreading installing it without any help. I should not have worried. Watching the Dvd first from start to finish the night before really helped with the preparation the next day. Really excellent quality system, can not fault it , definitely 5 star product"
"Following a break in of my van, I decided (after the horse had bolted) to try to stop it happening again. Bought the system, which came with a free key fob, and installed. Instructions very good, don't wander from the script, if you do wear ear defenders (it hurts). The instructions say "stay away from metal" well I fitted a PIR in my Van which is on the drive, happy days it works. So I now have my home and van protected. Bought and added two more PIR's since. Been running a month now with no problems. For what this kit can do and the price well it's a no brainer! Hopefully I should be able to get back to a restful nights sleep."
