Spotted this at B&Q (http://www.thedvdforums.com/jump2.php?url=http://www.awin1.com/tclick.php?id=30372&mid=483) in Stockport yesterday on an aisle end away from the alarms section. The Kit 2 alarm pack was 79. The same pack is 140 from Comet (http://www.thedvdforums.com/jump2.php?url=http://www.awin1.com/awclick.php?mid=157&id=30372&p=http://www.comet.co.uk/cometbrowse/product.do?sku=265411&cm_ven=Affiliatewindow&cm_cat=Affiliate&cm_pla=Affiliate&cm_ite=Affiliate) and 130 from Tesco (http://www.thedvdforums.com/jump2.php?url=http://clkuk.tradedoubler.com/click?p(898)a(60823)g(19972)url(http://direct.tesco.com/q/R.100-2857.aspx)). The kit contains the outside box, keypad, two door sensors and two PIRs, and can be extended with extras if needed.

I can't find it on their site though :(

I was looking at these in the Trafford store a few weeks ago. They were 100 though, I'll pop in and see if they're reduced or maybe pop into Stockport.

Cheers ic. Just picked one up for 79 in Ipswich. Looks like it has a good range too so with the addition of more sensors I'll be able to set up the alarm for the shed too.

Thanks again..

Bought one of these a couple of years ago. Very easy to fit, and the alarm box is very loud. The batteries in our box lasted approx two years, and the batteries in the PIR's and keypad are still going after 26 months.
I like it, and this is a great price. Extra sensors are quite often available on eBay (http://www.thedvdforums.com/jump2.php?url=http://www.tkqlhce.com/click-582776-5826355) - I bought two.

Probably worth noting that if you need them, it'd work out cheaper to buy two kits than individual sensors! PIRs tend to cost 30, door sensors 19 and keypads 30, so individually this pack would cost 128 just for the sensors.

I bought my kit a couple of years ago for my rented flat, then brought it with me to my house, adding a couple more PIRs.

We have a dog and cannot use the PIR's but the door sensors are terrific...also sounds to let you know if the door opens even when switched off.
Just bought extra for the sheds too!!

only if you lock your pets away in rooms without the PIRS alas :( A cat will set them off. A few online DIY alarm stores have the manual in PDF format if you want to check installtion and operation before buying.

Definitely not pet friendly - our two (although slightly loopy) cats set ours off regularly after opening doors into rooms which have the PIR's!

It doesn't.
The alarm box beeps differently when you arm / disarm and the batteries are running low. The PIR's can be tested individually.

Alarm box? So you're saying that the outside alarm box beeps when you are/disarm?

Find that extremely hard to believe.

I would imagine you mean the Keypad box beeps differently when you arm/disarm and when the Batteries are low.

I got mine tonight and will put it up at the wknd. Looks like a piece of to fit looking through the instructions. Have people enabled Jamming on there? It seems to add an extra thing that could go wrong and cause the alarm to go off.

What are the chances of a skaghead having a jamming device in his/her pocket when they try and break in?

When they do need replacing, after three years I've only had to replace the siren batterries, the control panel tells you which sensor need new one. Great systems, a doddle to set up and add new units too.

Set mine up this pm. Managed to annoy the neighbours as it went off one hour after install due to the tamper-proof timer kicking (thought by switching the system to "off" it would switch that off also but maybe not. Will find out in another 1/2 hour or so :) )

When I got mine (from Norwich branch) they were marked up as 99 but with a "Today only...79" sign.

Not sure if the signs have reverted back to 99 ??

Aha... thats answers the question I was about to ask !

As I'd need 3 door contacts anyway, I was considering getting 2 packs so I'd have spares of basically everything, and wanted to know if 2 sirens could be connected (one front one back).

Yeah, the instructions don't tell you how to set them up to work but all you have to do it put the sirens in learning mode, sync them with however many keypads you have then 'learn in' the contacts/PIR's.

Apparently not ! Luckily I had my mom with me, who whipped out her 10% 'wednesdays only' diamond card, to be told it was 20% for that day... not sure if it'll be repeated next week or not, but the bargain might be over (or all stock gone) by then.

Of course, B&Q have a good 28 day refund policy so you could always get one now to be sure and return it if you manage to get a better discount next week....

Alarm box? So you're saying that the outside alarm box beeps when you are/disarm?

Find that extremely hard to believe.
The alarm box is the hub of the system. The keypad only sends information to it, just like the PIRs and the door sensors. So the keypad tells the alarm five main things: arm, disarm, enter test mode, exit test mode and my batteries are going flat. Every time I arm and disarm, the keypad blips, then then box outside blips - lets you know it received the instruction (just like a car alarm).

:)

There seems to be some confusion here. The keypad in the kit this bargain is about does not have a screen. You have to spend a lot more to get the version that is like that. Ultimately the alarm is a deterant, and I think it does a good job. On the occassions where I've forgotten to disarm as I walk in (or more often that not armed it rather than disarmed it as I walk in) it does go off, so I know it works!

I've had one of these systems for a few years - and the alarm box itself only blips if the batteries in that box need replacing, or if the tamper switch in the alarm box has been triggered.

If all is working correctly the alarm box shouldn't make any sound at all (your neighbours would get very annoyed if it did!).

I switched off the tamper switch detector as it used to trigger for no apparent reason (and I couldn't really imagine that anyone would want to climb up and tamper with that box).

I have one of these, but possibly a different collection of units. They can be programmed as normal alarm, entry points (ie you get a time before the alarm goes off), "home" mode meaning that you expect them to be set off whilst you are at home and a couple of others I think.

The home mode means that you can have some units active during the night and others switched off.

Detty
05-01-2007, 18:10
The 'home' mode doesn't work on this model, though the button is still there. This system is simply on or off, no zones as such. You have 20 seconds to disable once tripped.

After reading through the user manual, unfortunately (for my purposes) ic is right - perhaps a change to the design since bigman bought his.

I'm having a hard time convincing the missus that a yellow box is good ("why can't it be white like all the others in the area?") let alone it blipping when arriving/leaving the house late at night....

Still, I find it incredible to believe that any system has an external box that beeps each time you enter/leave the house. Surely your neighbours would force you out of the area before anyone had chance to break into your house?

Exactly the reservations I have about it !

Can't understand why its designed to do so. Surely the fact that the alarm hasn't gone off within the 20 secs of entering your code is confirmation enough that it is armed/disarmed without telling the neighbourhood !

The courtesy blips really aren't intrusive, like I say - cars do it. Its one blip for armed, and two for disarmed. I talk to my neighbours a lot, and none have ever mentioned it - actually I find a neighbours alarm very noisy as his control pad starts beeping constantly as soon as he opens the front door, and I can hear that. In fact just before Christmas the house next door but one went out and bought one of these Yale alarms!

I was in Stockport B&Q early yesterday evening picking up some more bits and bobs and they still had the alarms.

There is a jumper setting in the alarm box (J2) which will make the alarm LEDS stay on until the system is disarmed. Normally i think they are only on during the time the alarm is sounding.

There's something in the manual that says if your system alarms and flashes 3 times times when disarming the unit then it means that it's previously alarmed and to be warned that there may be someone in the house.

...check "previous alarm warning" page 9 of the manual for more details.

79 normally or 63 if you know someone at B&Q with discount:thumbs:

Bargain

Got one and a remote keypad sensor from Homebase

25 each but got on Friday deal day with 10% off.

B&Q don't stock them.

P.S - Loads in Gloucester store

8ft Trampolines and enclosures are 100 now too.

Trampoline 4 80 is a steal if you know someone again who works for B&Q.

Asked this a few days back but no one answered.

When the system is 'armed' is the green 'ACTIVE' LED on the keypad supposed to be lit at any point. Mine doesn't seem to come on. Anyone?

Don't think so. Mine isn't. I guess because it's wireless, no lights means it lasts longer.

Anyone tried wiring up a standard magnetic contact to the (wireless) door sensor instead of buying the 'official' HSA 3090 ones ?

These are used when there isn't enough clearance to put the wireless contact in the correct position on the frame.

Can't see how they would differ :shrug:

Yes, go for it, they work fine. I used recessed ones from Maplin (http://www.thedvdforums.com/jump2.php?url=http://www.tkqlhce.com/click-582776-10297371) (code FK77J) with a bit of telephone cable to connect them. If you drill carefully you can take the cable out of the back of the wireless bit straight to the back of the recess in the frame to get a really tidy installation.

Yes, it's still on, I was in Coventry Alvis B+Q last night and they still had 22 boxes at 79 (or 63 with Diamond discount card). A few days ago they also had some boxes of 3 PIRs reduced from 69 to 19.99 but these all seem to have gone. Might be some at other branches though.

I had a guy at B+Q tell me to extend the door contacts by using switches from Maplin - they seem to be 1.49 for N49CL. I'm going to get some and try.

I don't think you can disable the arm/disarm beep but as others have said it really isn't very noticeable - I struggle to hear it through the door.

Depends if you *really* want it on at night... if not, its a very good price, even if only used as a daytime-only 'empty house' system.

Bear in mind that as a 'night use' system this one doesn't part-set, so it would limit your options for covering the upstairs anyway.

I've looked around and don't think you'll get better for the price. :thumbs:

I'm using it as a daytime-only at the mo, and will probably be adding another yale system to it later to give an extra siren, more pirs/magnets, and a control panel to allow part-set etc. Also allows you to set/unset by phone and a few more clever features. Its the HSA3800 - these usually are about 300 but can be found on fleabay for about half that.

Yeah i might just skip this one and go for a better kit with a control panel. Part set doesn't bother me though.

We have a dog and cannot use the PIR's but the door sensors are terrific...also sounds to let you know if the door opens even when switched off.

I picked up one of the Kit 4 ones from fleabay today. I was wondering whether the control pad from the Kit 2 in this offer could work as a second keypad for my kit4 setup?
If so, 50 is a bargain for a second keypad plus extra PIRs/Bell and magnets :)

Fatbloke
27-02-2007, 06:03
Actually, let me rephrase the question: According to the Yale site, the Kit 4 can use the wirefree control pad that has a part number of HSA3080. Is this the part number of the controller that's supplied with the Kit 2? Can someone who's not installed everything yet have a peek for me please? :)

I can't see the model number anywhere ... on the instructions or on the unit itself. Searching for HSA3080 on the web, the pictures look the same as my control unit.

1 left in B&Q Havant :nuts: - have bought another one as needed an extra PIR.

With 'two' alarm boxes, it should be possible to zone-split, although obviously only one alarm box would go off at nighttime.

OK, one last test then! On the back of the control pad, is there a LEARN/TEST button? I think this will allow the device to be learnt by another device (i.e. the main control panel).

Fatbloke

Just to answer my own question...
I went down to the B&Q in Beckton tonight - their alarm section was almost empty. They had no Yales at all except one damaged Kit2 which had a PIR and a Magnetic catch missing. However, the rest was intact and the manager gave it to me for 15 !
He spoke about the sale of the Kit2s in a way that led me to believe that they won't be getting any more in (but I might be wrong).

Anyhow, I looked at the Kit2 control panel and there's a jumper inside which when set OFF, turns the control panel into a slave panel (I think). I've managed to get it to sync with my Kit4 control panel. Result!

Will put it all up on Saturday. Not looking forward to taking the old alarm down, the outside box has been up 14 years and I bet it'll trigger the tamper alarm the second I touch it. Bet the screw will be rusted to buggery too :(

Where's my ear protectors.....?

stevejm
28-02-2007, 21:26
How touchy are the PIRs with regard to radiators? My rads heat up in no time at all - could they trigger the alarm if the PIR can 'see' them?

Fatbloke
28-02-2007, 22:07
My current alarm has a PIR facing a radiator and it never had a problem. It's the speed that something gets hot as opposed to how hot it gets if you see what I mean? Radiators don't heat up fast enough.

any help much appreciated.

stevejm
23-03-2007, 20:28
You have to put batteries in, then set tamper deactivation.

How's everyone else getting on with their alarms?

Had a minor problem with my rear mounted box (I have two alarm kits trained to act as one) when the tamper for the box was in a mortar joint. A bit of re-engineering with a pair of pliers on the tamper micro-switch trigger and all was fixed.

senaf870
25-03-2007, 18:15
Yeah, I'm well pleased with mine - also the one I got for me old man. Both work well and no false alarms as yet.

Also had to 'adjust' the tamper on the alarm box due to uneven wall - I just padded out the switch using the sticky bits provided for sticking the door sensors to the doors.

If you're still having problems deactivating the tamper before mounting, make sure that the jumpers in everything but the outdoor alarm box are in the 'off' or 'parked' position before disabling tamper, else it won't work and the alarm keeps going off..

I've been to B&Q in Oldham and they have about 10 smoke detectors which work with this alarm in the clearance section. Were 29.98 now 15.

Also B&Q in Rochdale they have the Yale Alarm & Safe Kit reduced from 79 to 49. This comes with wireless Siren, Keyfob, 1 PIR and 1 door contact and a Home Safe.

I also noticed a Friedland Alertgard which calls you when one of your home alarms is activated. Had a clearance sticker saying 26.63 BUT scanned at 9.98. :thumbs:

One of my Yale Alarm boxes has stopped responding to the keypad, and the LEDs are doing a KITT style sweep from side to side.

The manual hasn't got any explanation of what this problem could be - a low battery issue for example is supposed to provide other indications.

Any ideas?

steed
12-10-2008, 20:45
It could be a low battery issue.

My alarm indicated that the batteries were low in the alarm box, but after a few days when I had purchased some new batteries it wasn't responding to either the keypad or the keyfob. Therefore I couldn't turn off the tamper to replace the batteries.

Assuming that the batteries must have been completely dead I took off the alarm box only for the tamper device to activate the alarm!

It took me several minutes to get the batteries out to turn off the alarm. I tried them in a torch and it wouldn't even give any sign of light so they were dead, so the alarm bell must not use that much power for the actual siren.

I had quite a bit of trouble with mine. It would frequently get confused and need the keypad resetting, and on one occasion I had the same situation as Steed - had to climb up and take the batteries out of the siren box to reset it. The last time this happened I tried the same thing, put new batteries in the siren and the keypad, but even after that I found the keypad would only communicate with the siren if I stood on the top of the ladder and held the keypad within 1 metre of the siren box. Not a very useful method of setting the alarm every day !

Also the keypad always ate batteries from day one - instead of lasting a year or two like the manual says, the low-battery flashing light indication would come up every three months max, sometimes sooner. I guess that was a symptom of something failing internally, and now it's completely packed up. I'm going to write to Yale to complain, don't know if I'll get anywhere, if so I'll post here.

ic
14-10-2008, 18:35
