Product Details
Details
The ERA Wireless Alarm series are a range of smart home security alarms designed to give you ultimate control of your home security. The intuitive wireless system has been designed with DIY in mind ensuring no wiring or running cables in walls or under the carpet and you won't need the services of a qualified electrician.

The alarm components are easy to install on a DIY basis and have a wide 80 metre wireless range (in open field conditions) using a 433MHz frequency, ensuring you can place them practically anywhere.

The ERA Invincible Alarm PLUS is a dual network telecommunicating alarm with integrated mobile phone technology and is operated by a touch screen control panel, which incorporates a SIM Card holder and allows communication directly with the control panel. In addition, the alarm system can be operated via a Smartphone App, one of the included remote controls and can be disarmed by one of the RFID Contactless Tags. When the alarm is triggered, a loud siren will sound from the control panel to alert others of an intruder and the system will also alert you via a phone call or a text message. This alarm kit also includes a wireless solar powered external siren box which produces an 110db siren.

In the box


PIR Motion Detector1 x Pet PIR Motion Detector
The pet friendly sensor activates when larger movement is detected making it ideal for homes with one small pet (less than 20 - 25kg). The detector should be placed in the corner of rooms that are vulnerable to intruders. When the alarm is armed an infrared sensor will detect any larger movement and activate the loud alarm siren.

Door Sensor Contact1 x Door Sensor Contact
When the alarm is armed, if a door or window that is protected by the contact is opened the contact is broken activating the loud external siren. The maximum space between sensor and magnet is 10mm.

Outdoor Siren Box2 x Remote Keyfobs
The keyfob is used to arm or disarm the alarm system without the need for a PIN code and can be used from any room in your home. The keyfob also includes a panic button should you need to sound the alarm in an emergency.

RFID Contactless Tags2 x RFID Contactless Tags
The wireless radio-frequency identification (RFID) Tags will disarm the alarm, without needing a code, by swiping across the control panel. These lightweight tags are also designed to be fitted to your key ring.

Keypad Control Panel1 x Touch Screen Control Panel
The keypad is used to arm or disarm the alarm system via entry of your own unique PIN code. The keypad also integrates a SIM card holder allowing you to listen in and two-way talk via your phone.

Outdoor Siren Box1 x Outdoor Siren Box
The solar powered siren box includes a rechargeable battery and does not require a mains power supply. Fitted in a highly visible location on the exterior of the property the loud 110dB siren will sound and the LED will flash when the alarm is triggered.

I chose the ERA Invincible as its one of the only branded GSM/SMS text messaging alarms available in the UK without turning to the like of Ebay or other Amazon sellers. The piece of mind is the unit has the dual function of using either a phone line or reverting to SIM card if needed and it doesn’t rely on an internet connection.

The product seems to have been made for ERA by Chuango, not a bad thing as they seem a major player in SMART technology.

I prefer hardwired alarms systems without a doubt but have installed a number of wireless ones including those from Yale too, I chose ERA vs. Yale as Yale does not seem to make a dual connectivity alarm as far as I’m aware. I would have liked to install a hardwired dual communicating alarm system, however these seemed to be prohibitively expensive, entering the world of professional installations and building monitoring systems and panels.

Out of the box the components seem to be of high quality, well packaged, comparable in quality to those from Yale. I would say in my opinion the alarm is less intuitive to set up that a Yale alarm, the quick guide to get up and running quickly is practically useless and you have to read the separate booklets that come with each of the attachments. The ERA alarm has a touch type panel that looks good but feels intermittent when tapped, Yale alarms tend to have menu buttons that are more tactile.

The ERA Invincible threw up a few similar problems encountered by other uses. Namely, one of the PIR’s was faulty and had to be replaced by ERA.

The second issue was that once connected the alarm causes noise on the phone line – Despite discussions with ERA this has not been overcome.

Other smaller issues are – the instructions are incorrect on how to change the Admin and User codes, again ERA described how to do this correctly over the phone and acknowledged the error in the instructions. For information – the code has to be put in twice, i.e. confirmed twice.

Lastly if you’ve bought the remote keypad accessory , it is only a one way device, therefore when you re-enter the property the keypad does not start beeping a countdown, you’d have to be able to hear the main console beeping instead, which in my case was not possible. In my opinion the remote keypad should be able to give an audible countdown.

Both SAFE and ERA have proven helpful in resolving the teething troubles encountered, providing a good service.

I would recommend the alarm despite the issues faced as it does seem reliable now up and running. I have not had any false alarms and the speed it communicates an alarm condition is very impressive, typically a second or two. If I could remove the rhythmic pulsing sound on my phone line I’d be happier still….

Feels a smart, modern piece of kit. Easy to install and configure through the main panel.

Not without bugs/issues though:

-The main panel seemed keen to enrol 'rogue' devices ahead of the supplied sensors - meaning that I had to delete a number of detected wireless sources manually.

-One PIR returned and replaced due to spurious alerts in an empty room despite relocating.

-One door sensor currently removed from system due to tamper alerts upon door closure.

-The main panel has 'hung' three times - usually linked to power outages - this requires removal from the wall and a hard reset to recover. This does allow testing of the tamper alert and sounder though :)

Do these alarms use any form of signal encryption or data protection. How easy are they to disable with any hacking device as mentioned in the daily mail for the mi-guard.
khushpal Jandoo, Coventry West Midlands
The ERA invincible works on a secure and private 433MHZ radio frequency. However I can also recommend the ERA HomeGuard Smart Alarm Pro - Premium Kit which has anti Tamper technology.

How does this system communicate with the smartphone app? I’m aware it’s through a SIM card but does this use data or do it through text messages?

We want to alarm our garage - are there suitable PIR sensors to do this available - I've been told a dual sensor one is best also does the RFID keypad include an internal siren or does this need to be added separately?
Dave, Guilford
The ERA PIR's which work on a duel sensor would be suitable as long as the garage is within 80 metres frequency range of the hub. The RFID keypad does not include an internal siren however the actual hub has one built in which would siren when any component is activated.

Standard Alarm Installation

We offer professional installation on our complete range of wireless alarm kits, for the home or business.

Our experienced engineer will complete a brief site inspection and then discuss their findings with you to agree equipment positioning before commencing the installation of your Alarm Kit, including hub, all components (including selected components purchased from Safe.co.uk) and the wireless external siren.

Your installation will include positioning motion sensors in areas to provide the most suitable sensor coverage and locating the external siren in a highly visible location. Final positions will be governed by safe site access and the effect of the building on wireless range, including wall thickness, building materials and location of your Wi-Fi equipment.

You must ensure that adequate power is available for the alarm hub (one power socket) and that easy access is available to your broadband router as this will need to be connected to your alarm hub using an ethernet cable. If your router is not close to where you intend to position the alarm hub we advise purchasing a powerline adaptor prior to install.

The engineer will set up remote monitoring on one device and then carry out a final assessment to confirm that your new system is fully operational before providing a brief demonstration of your system and confirming it has been completed to your satisfaction.

Non-standard Alarm Installation

In some cases, it may be necessary to install additional materials or provide extra resources (manpower) to facilitate an installation in a safe manner.

If additional costs are likely these will be discussed with you prior to installation. Reasons for extra costs might include:

  • Large commercial buildings such as warehouses and office blocks.
  • Additional alarm devices not supplied by Safe.co.uk.
  • Specialised access equipment and permits such as hoists, lifts and cranes.
  • Outside of normal hours working (Mon-Fri, 9am to 5pm).
  • 4x4 Vehicular access requirements to remote rural sites.
  • Road closure including necessary permits.
  • Additional manpower to overcome technical, lifting or safety access issues.

We offer installation throughout the UK mainland, however some more remote and rural post codes in the Highlands are subject to a surcharge to cover additional fuel and traveling time costs.

The following areas will incur a rural travel surcharge:

£55.00 Surcharge Areas

These additional elements are deemed to fall outside the definition of a 'Standard Installation'. If you feel your installation might be non-standard please contact us to discuss your individual requirements.

If applicable, additional costs are to be paid before installation begins.

Warranty Terms & Conditions

Our installer provides a standard 12 month warranty on all new installations and a 3 month warranty on all materials provided during maintenance visits.

Note: Existing system components and pre-supplied equipment are not included in the installation warranty as these elements are covered by the Manufacturer warranty.

We reserve the right to undertake an ‘Assessment Call’ without prejudice to investigate any complaints relating to materials failure or poor workmanship to assess if the complaint is valid. Please note that remedial service calls generated by elements outside of our sphere of influence or due to different fault conditions will be chargeable to you at an agreed call out charge.

In scenarios where you request a post installation service call and our assessment identifies the fault condition or cause of the fault falls outside of the limitations of the standard installation warranty (Force Majeure, different fault etc) a call out charge will be incurred for the visit.

Assessment calls raised for reasons outside our sphere of influence or responsibility and not covered by the standard installation will incur a call out charge for labour and additional materials.

The following are examples of when a call out charge would be incurred:

  • Accidental Damage
    The Alarm system is knocked off alignment by high winds or moving objects such as ladders, footballs or people.
  • Malicious Damage
    The Alarm system has been physically damaged by vandals or DIY.
  • Materials Failure
    Previously Installed equipment (existing) or equipment included in the pre-purchased kit are deemed to be at fault. Faulty equipment such as the alarm hub, sensors, and power supply units are covered by the manufacturer warranty.
  • System Modification
    A request that the installed system be modified such as sensors or the external siren be repositioned post installation.
  • Incorrect Diagnosis
    The customers web portal, broadband connectivity or Mobile App are identified as being at fault or incorrectly operated by the user when trying to access the system. This includes user error and any form of software / firmware upgrades post installation.
