We've had a Response wireless solar powered alarm on our house for about ten years, which has been trouble free until a problem in the siren itself forced me to replace it with another system from Response operating on the more up to date frequency of 868MHZ.

So what you might say! Well it reminded me how easy these systems are to fit and that the main advantage they have over wired alarms is that additional PIRs and door/window detectors are easily fitted to a garage or garden shed/ workshop as long as they are within 150 meters. That I would say would be of interest to those of us whose second home is that refuge, from you know who, at the bottom of the garden.

Yes - Please!

One of the things we want for the house is an alarm system, and I would really like to get one of these wireless ones - I have got a cheap one on the shed ATM, but it is a decidely cheap one....

If you have any issues deciding, your local police SHOULD have a crime prevention officer who can run through what would be best for you. It is free and unbiased, as we are not on any commission, honest!

I think I'm right in saying that the Yale systems need to have the siren and the key pad connected to 240 volt supply, so fitting them is not so convenient as the Response systems where the siren is solar powered and the key pad takes a battery. We had to change the siren re chargeable battery once in ten years and only two PP9 in the key pad in that time I think.

remember traditional alarms only work if someone acts when they are activated, police etc will not respond to alarms going off (too many false alarms), consider a monitored alarm for not only intruder but also fire and c02 they are reasonably priced these day`s, well worth the investment to protect precious items and family.

I'm considering installing an intruder alarm for the house and having read the above posts I was wondering whether anyone has any ideas as to whether wireless systems can be nullified by a handheld device or some such thing.
I've had wired systems in the past and any tampering/cut wires etc would immediately set the bells ringing.

Perhaps some of you electronic wizards out there may have the answer.

Wireless systems can be nullified very simply - but it's illegal to do so. IMO, alarm systems are a waste of time and money, in our previous house one of the neighbours had one which false triggered regularly - nobody took any notice although I was desperately close to cutting the wires!

Not sure if the RSPCA would take kindly to leaving a dog alone for two weeks.

Any alarm is better than none and to nullify the alarm also sets off the alarm so I would not worry.

Is this true if jammed?
