Customer Reviews for Yale Ultimate 2-Room Alarm Kit
"Had this alarm system for two months and absolutely love it. Very easy to install (have BT Broadband), easy to add extra devices and gives me the piece of mind I need when I'm away from the house: know that alarm hasn't gone off; can take pictures to double check everything ok; and even know when my wife gets back from work! Of course if the alarm does go off I can double check the images to see if there is an intruder, call the police if there is, inform my keyholder or reset the system remotely. Also very easy to set the downstairs system from the key fob in my bedroom.
It's not cheap at 499 pounds and you'll need to spend another 250-300 pounds for a 4 bedroom house but makes economic sense for those considering a monitored system which is slightly more expensive for a low-tech system, gives less piece of mind and incurs a monthly monitoring charge .
Description does say 2 contacts but only comes with one - contacts are 21 pounds but Screwfix provided one FOC when I called up"
The only issue you may find with having a BT Homehub is for some reason it will not issue a dhcp address to the alarm control box.
Unfortunately this is not the fault of the alarm and I fixed that by introducing a 2nd dhcp server on my network but this is not for everybody to setup. Without a dhcp address the alarm control box does not connect to the internet.
But it's all working now and I like the fact that I can arm/disarm with my smartphone and view pictures the pir sensors take when it detects movement.
You don't need any port forwarding on the firewall for this to work as the control box maintains a continuous outbound connection to the yale servers."
"At £500, i expected at least what was advertised, its says it has two door contacts, in fact its only supplied with one! easy to fit, yes, but if you have BT infinity, forget it, The Hub blocks all communications even with the firewall off and the panel IP placed in the DMZ zone. Yales support is non existent, No info abort TCP/UDP ports required so that port forwarding can be enabled in an attempt to resolve the coms issue. Very disappointing, expensive white Elephant"
