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. The only tricky part is to locate the main keypad next to both a power source and telephone point, once you have that sorted, the rest is straight forward gives peace of mind that no one is downstairs when I go to sleep, has never given me any false alarms.

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. Overall, very good instructions, but think that there should be more detail re adding additional working sirens (3 in my case), but really liked the simplistic way of being able to easily add additional devices (eg additinal PIR's, door contacts etc).

buy it buy it buy it.
im a single lady on my own. and needed something to keep me feeling safe when inside, and my house safe knowing no one was in side already waiting for me when returning home.
i put the dvd in my playstation 3 and paused and did what i was told to do after every step. i used the information sheet to look at to answer questions after. i love that you can add more if you like to the system, which keeps the burglars guessing.
super easy honest go for it.

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)

Great bit of kit, bought it this morning and had it fitted and working in 2 hours, everything is wireless, just fit door contacts, PIR's and siren, press learn on each device, which links them to the control panel, enter phone number for it to call if it goes off and thats it!!
Well done Yale!! (read more)
