Would't it be good if the real bell box had 24hr flashing l.e.d lights? Iv seen Yale real bell boxes with l.e.d flashing lights for sale from £20+. But i fitted my own flashing l.e.d lights for £7.00.And now I'm fitting my mum's house with Yale . (read more)

My alarm was fitted by a qualified engineer who fitted one for himself. It was OK at first but then I had problems deactivating it.The last time, a couple of days ago,I couldn't disalarm it.I entered the code but nothing worked after I entered the first 2 digits. Then it started going off. Nothing I could do would stop the terrible racket. Not long after it started my neighbours started to appear to find out what was happening. I must admit I panicked a bit.The wall mounted keypad showed all... (read more)

After researching the market for an insurance approved alarm, we opted for the Yale Smart Alarm - obviously the brand speaks for itself and its grade 2 listed. We also needed a GSM based alarm and this is the yale yop of the range alarm. We purchased a complete package via MAP Security in Bristol I believe as recommneded by Yale. They did indeed offer a variety of brands but we stuck to Yale ........ The Smart alarm is a wireless alarm 868Mhz and Grade 2 listed which basically means its for... (read more)

I have rung customer service 3 times now requesting what number will be displayed on my mobile phone if the alarm is activated. I have tested this and it is not my home phone number that is displayed. All 3 customer service staff have told me it IS my home phone number and when I have told them it is not and if they could please check for me then they hung up. They must not give comprehensive training to customer service and the current staff would rather lie and make up facts as opposed to... (read more)

I bought the Yale HSA6400 premium alarm about 2 years ago and fitted it with the missus one Saturday afternoon. The job took us a couple of hours, this included the 'walk test'(a simple way of confirming that all the sensors are functioning correctly). We've since added 2 extra PIRs and 1 additional door sensor for increased security. This alarm comes with an instructional DVD and a booklet for ease of installation. I've this weekend changed the batteries on the siren, again a relatively... (read more)

Bought this system from Homebase along with an extra PIR and 2 extra door/window contacts. Setup and Instalation took 1 1/2 hours at most. System phones me or my partner when activated, all sensors are individually named, signal strong enough to work in garage and shed. Instructions are so so so simple to follow. Would highly recommend to anyone (read more)

I bought a Yale Standard Alarm. Instructions are vague and don't explain in detail what to do if this or that happens during setup. Took multiple attempts to set equipment up as keypad refused to be accepted by the siren, and when finally positioned the PIR's didn't register any movement for about a minute (During this time about two grands worth of tools could have been stolen from my workshop) and the door opening alarm failed to sound alarm even though test said that it was functioning...

Nice DVD with instillation guide, easy to fit.

Like: Simple to operate, I have purchased key fobs to make it even easier. So simple to set up, any fool could do it - including me. Took 30 mins without watching included DVD or instruction manual. Set the alarm off once, antitamper switch activated - so that works then. Walk test works well, good coverage, I have old property with thick walls, no problem. All in all, good value for money - especially if you buy at the right time Dislike: Siren runs from 4 D size batteries, with no... (read more)

Bought the HSA6400 alarm, and have now completed the installation.

Having owned this alarm for over two years, I would agree with most of the positive comments posted on this site. The system was reasonably straightforward to set up, and functioned impeccably until the second year of operation, when the rather unnerving "Burglar!" phone alert was received whilst away on holiday. This turned out to be a false tamper alert, caused by the batteries in one of the PIR detectors moving slightly and losing contact. Unable to be certain it wouldn't occur again, I... (read more)

What was described as simple to install arrived with 28 pages of installation instructions. It has taken 5 people several days of fiddling around, changing bits and pieces and trying to work out miles and miles of instructions.
Following finally getting it going, the alarm goes off all night and we have had to disconnect it. Also the window alarms do not function on our windows as they are 2cm deep, and one sensor has never worked.
Either we are a particularly stupid family, or this alarm... (read more)

An excellent piece of kit.
I thought I would give my opinion of the systems since I actually install these systems for other people throughout Yorkshire.
I have installed around 300 Yale alarms and their reliability has been exemplarary. Since I provide a full warranty back up I can confirm that I never get called out to misbehaving and faulty systems. Of course some of that is down to my installation expertise and some is down to the intrinsic reliability of the systems themselves.... (read more)

This is an great burglar alarm for the money. I bought mine from www.quicksafe.co.uk after house owner two doors up bought one from them as they offer comfort LEDs for the working and dummy siren.
The installation took around 3 hours with three extra PIRs. The alarm auto dialler is a great feature and works well.
The outdoor siren is battery powered. I now paln to add a extra remote keypad to arm and dis-arm the alarm system from up stairs.
Delivery was very fast (Next day) and the alarm... (read more)

After reading a few positive reviews I thought I would give it a go. Tesco direct had a special deal on which made it even more attractive. I set the system up with all the kit in my kitchen(that included the siren/alarm). Expect to get the amber tamper alarm with the cover off!
It was a straight forward installation and I can say that as long as you have a set of ladders you will have NO problem fitting it within 3 hours. Dont be afraid to experiment with the control pad. Without panicing... (read more)

I have had a yale 6400 alarm installed for over a year now and I have nothing but praise for the system. I wasn't confident installing myself as I didn't have a ladder and didn't want to mess up the programming in case it lead to false alarms or worse no alarm. Fortunately I managed to google and find fastalarms who will install the yale alarms for you. Very friendly chap arrived and installed the system in just a couple of hours. Took plenty of time to explain everything to us. I have just... (read more)

Excellent well designed product, great features.
Took me sometime to get used the programming and appreciate all the different settings that are available.
Be careful the manual is in my opinion misleading. E.g entry delay has to be programmed into the device details not the top level detail in the control panel. So initially I could not achieve an entry delay.
Solution to this was found online very quickly through Yale website.
So - once you have taken time to learn the product its... (read more)

Great alarm, design and build quality. Good value payed £169 at homebase. possible problem is fitting. do not beleive the jokers in these reviews who fitted it in 3 hours. Took me most of the weekend to fit one for my daughter. Problem is complex programming easy to get lost. Also time depends on availability of power and phone lines to feed the control panel. You need a good set of ladders plus cord less drill for fitting siren 20 foot from floor. Pity the Yale help line is not open... (read more)

Yale Premium Burglar Alarms HSA 6400 is a very good alarm for the price. I fitted mine in around 2 hours. I had 3 additional movement detectors and two panic buttons upstairs and down stairs. We have a dog so I bought one of the Pet friendly alarm versions off the Internet. I like the fact the alarm can be part set at night. Also the telephone dialler is excellent as this will notify you of any alarm activations when away and you can dial in to set the alarm. The website I bought the system... (read more)
