"Easy installation, even for DIYers. Took me around 45 minutes to install.... including drilling the holes on the wall outside ... on top of my dodgy ladder ... for the alarm box. Works a treat!! Probably not the greatest alarm in the world but provides a good deterrent against the opportunist thief."
"Just what you need to scare off Billy the Burglar. The bright yellow box should be bright enough to put him off on its own. Easy to program and easy to fit. Hopefully it's one of those things that we'll never know whether it does it's job properly."
"I highly recommend this product for it's ease of use, instillation and features. The DVD is good, but as the control panel needs to be plugged in I found myself constantly pausing it as the power source was in the hallway and not in view of the TV, in the end I used the written instructions. That aside the set up is very easy, door /window contacts take seconds to fit, The PIR sensors take a bit longer due to having to drill holes. Plan out what you want where before you start and then follow the instructions, it's very easy. We bought two key rings as an addition and would strongly recommend them as it is much easier than rushing to the keypad. Also bought a Pet Sensor but couldn't get it to connect, the replacement was the same, but then realised it was for a different Yale system. Having finally got the right one it worked fine."
"This alarm system is great value for money and easily fitted. I fitted the door/window contacts to a upvc front and rear door, it's important to pack out the door frame contact so that both contact bases are approximately level, otherwise the contacts will not function correctly. I had a hard wired alarm in my previous house and this had a great deal more features than this one, however this is still a great system."
"This alarm is really easy to install and set up, once you have read and understood the instructions. From box to working took less than 2 hours with an additional door/window switch. Only downside with the basic alarm is that there is a permanent 20 second delay on all PIRs and switches once triggered which could allow an intruder to make a quick escape. (the alarm pips once when triggered but doesn't go off for 20s to allow deactivation on entry)"
"Cant fault this at all, great alarm system.Took me about 3 hours with a couple of added accessories. Tested for a further hour dashing through the house and all worked perfectly. I like the key fob accessory because the alarm goes off instantly and no 20 second delay when you set it with that. Advise is to read through the manual a few times and watch the dvd a couple of times as well and you'll be fine. I used a 5.5 drill bit for the rawl plugs and they fitted nice and tight."
"Having toyed with the idea of an alarm system for some time I finally decided on this one, which I consider to be good value for money Quite easy to set up, but you do need to be fairly adept at DIY, & have given an average of 4 stars including performance & reliability which have to be proven After fitting I contacted my house insurers & was very pleased to see that my premium was reduced by quite an amount, more than the system cost"
"For a basic system, this is hard to beat, and Screwfix were the cheapest. The supplied kit (Bell box, 2 room sensors and two door/window sensors) took less than an hour to fit all-in with just some pretty basic tools - cordless drill and screw bits. You can fit up to 20 widgets to the one unit, either when you fit it, or later on. The alarm system is basic - on or off, no zones etc - you have to pay a lot more for all that. The instructions are very clear, didn't even need the DVD, and everything worked right from the first attempt no problems. Bell box is very visible when correctly positioned being bright yellow, which can only be good. Easy to use, which is good with kids. Too early to assess reliability, but no reason to doubt as yet."
