Rated 5 out of 5Â by Bill99 Yale Easy Fit Smartphone alarm
This alarm was ridiculously easy to install...and I am not an experienced (or keen!) DIYer!
The Yale Easy Fit alarm is packed with clever features and yet is not complicated to either fit or set up. It's easy to use the SmartPhone app to control it and look at photos from the PIR. It is very loud as I found out when we tested it.
I found the quality of the components in the box to be excellent and now have a modern, professional grade alarm......it even looks good, so much so that one of my neighbours has bought the exact same one now!
Also clearly having a big 'YALE' badge on the bell box is a good deterent.
If you want a professional grade system, to fit yourself , then I consider this excellent value for money and with Screwfix it arrived the next day.

After having this system since Christmas I have to say I'm really pleased with it!
As other have said you will need to spend a bit extra if you have a bigger house although what it came with in the box was enough to secure the downstairs of my house. I have since added upstairs sensors and a door switch.
I have a rural wireless broadband set-up but have had no issues with the alarm working with it.
I have not had to call support but their number can be found in the App if you need it.
All in all if this system is in your price range and you like a cool gadget I doubt you will be disappointed!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by birder1974 Yale - ahead of the game!
Yale's innovative alarm system is certainly worth a look, particularly if you like your gadgets! I was attracted to this alarm, as opposed to other systems, by the app-control feature and camera and video PIR's (a camera comes in the box as standard). Yale certainly appear to be ahead of the competition.
The alarm arrived in kit form, pre-programmed, and installation was really straightforward - once I'd registered my app and contact details then carried out a device 'walk' around test - to check all sensors were operating within radio range - I was good to go....
The app has a really slick feel about it and is also straightforward to navigate. There are nine simple, self-explanatory, icons available on the 'home' screen (since Yale's latest app upgrade). Other useful features I found include an option of a 'comfort' Led for your outside siren, a 'request image' option to see what is going in your rooms in real-time, also the image bank to store your pictures on to the Yale remote server.
One thing to mention is it is perhaps best to leave the 24-hour periodic device supervision 'disabled' since I found it can run down the sensor batteries somewhat more rapidly. Also, don't forget to turn your siren tamper 'off' before mounting it on to your house wall, or you'll risk a massive earache! All in all though a fantastic alarm system and highly recommended!

Easy to install with a little patience, I find this alarm easy to use and a flexible system to extend when needed. being able to use my Smartphone to control the system is a great modern alternative to the traditional control unit - the PIR camera gives a clear picture when activated.
Great Customer support from Yale, the techies on the helpdesk really know their stuff
