    Yale wireless alarm systems

    Anyone have any expierence of these, they seem very well priced, easy to install and seem good to expand also, after the recent break in at our house we are looking at getting an alarm fitted and these seem ideal and in our price range, are they any good and are they secure, with them being wireless to me it seems like they might not be as secure and the signals might be jamable?

    Any info would be great, thanks.

    Only problem with DIY alarms mate is that if you are telling your insurance company you have an alarm, they will say thats great....until you get broken into and you phone them and they say "Sorry, your alarm has to be fitted by a qualified installer and must be serviced annually".....mate that used to fit alarms told me this. But back on topic, we used to have an AEM wireless alarm and it was great but a b*tch on batteries.

    Not too fussed about insurance aproval, more as a deterent if anything, yale claims that the devices will last up to 3 years on each battery and will tell you when and which device is running low.

    Fitted one at my sisters, easy job and easy to expand. Good deterrent I think. Siren not very loud though, needs one front & back of the property.

    As a former alarm fitter, alarms are a waste of time, just like car alarms they just get ignored.
    Better of getting a hidden CCTV system and a basic silent alarm with auto dialer.
    This way there is more chance the burglars will still be about when the police turn up and the cctv will provide photo evidence.

    I think an alarm will work pretty well, if we had an alarm the other day the burgler would have been caught as my neighbours who are usually in most of the time would have known the guy they were speaking to in the street had just robbed our house rather than thinking he was just someone walking by. Also i have heard CCTV is pretty useless unless you get a really good one as unless the picture quality is really good it wont be much use, it also wouldnt be much use if the persons face is covered and the silent alarm isnt going to stop him breaking in, stealing all our stuff and getting away.

    I fitted one to the New Keif towers last year.

    It's gone off twice.......both for a reason, both our fault, not the alarms.

    We did what you've done, decided on a wireless system for ease of installation. I have found a slight "issue" with it and need to see if i can change the systems settings to sort it. (i'm not posting what on a public forum tho)
