Details
The Yale Easy Fit range of alarms are a breakthrough in both performance and technology. The intuitive wireless system has been designed with DIY in mind ensuring the Easy Fit Alarm really is "easy to fit". 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 pre-linked and have a wide 30 metre wireless range using the highly reliable 868MHz frequency, ensuring you can place them practically anywhere. The Yale Easy Fit Alarm range - designed with the user in mind.

The Yale Easy Fit Apartment Alarm EF-KIT4 is keypad operated and is designed for flats. The system is armed or disarmed using a PIN code on the keypad and includes a pre-set 20 second entry/exit period. When the alarm is triggered a loud internal siren will sound to alert others of an intruder.

In the box


PIR Motion Detector1 x PIR Motion Detector
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 movement and activate the loud internal 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 internal siren.

Indoor Siren Box1 x Indoor Siren Box
Fitted in a central location in the apartment the loud 100dB indoor siren will sound when the alarm is triggered.

Keypad Control Panel1 x Keypad Control Panel
The keypad is used to arm or disarm the alarm system via entry of your own unique PIN code. The keypad can be fixed to a wall or carried around your home.

Pre-linked components
All the wireless components are linked together straight out of the box. There is no technical knowledge or wiring required to install a Yale Easy Fit alarm.

Advanced technology 868 MHz wireless
Yale Easy Fit alarms are designed to operate on on a frequency of 868MHz which uses a short duty cycle of only 1%. This means that any single device can only transmit for 1% of the time, leaving the channel free 99% of the time. When multiple devices are operating on the same system this technology ensures a more stable connection and little chance of interference. Many DIY alarm systems use a less regulated higher duty cycle reducing performance.

Rolling Code Technology
A remote control device transmits a unique code to the control panel in most DIY systems. This unique code is used by the system to determine that the correct remote control is attempting to contact the control panel - for example not your neighbour's remote control. The problem with the unique code is that it might be possible to intercept it and as a result make a clone enabling someone else to activate the system. Rolling Code technology ensures this cannot happen by changing the unique code every time it is sent to the control panel, meaning if the code is intercepted it will not work again as it can only be used once - adding a further level of security.

This alarm was a synch to fit straight out of the box and sound is good when the alarm goes off. The sensors stick into place with double-sided tape. It is fitted to my home office in the garden.

I particularly like the remote control on my key fob so I can put the alarm on from the house if I forget to set it before coming indoors.

Good value for money; easy to fit DIY, and feels a good solid product.

I helped a neighbour's live in carer to buy this unit for her daughter in Lithuania. She had just moved into a small flat on an estate and was worried about her security. So we bought it and shipped it over to her.

She came to visit her mother only this week and I had a chance to meet her. Well I ever saw anyone with a bigger smile when I asked her about it, she is absolutely delighted with it. So one very happy young lady delighted with your product. Very easy to install and understand instructions. Well done!

» Ask Question   

 
Do the PIR's have a flashing sensor? Just trying to assess the battery life of them.
Deepa Bhatt, Ilford
The PIR's don't have a constant flashing light. The only time the sensor will light up is when it picks up any motion in the room.

Is the bellbox battery or mains powered? Or can it be both?
Ideally I want one that is mains powered with a backup battery.
Michael, Dudley
The siren box on the full range of Yale Easy Fit Alarms is wireless and uses battery power only.

Does this package include pet friendly sensors?
Amy
This package does not include the Easy Fit Pet PIR sensors as standard but you can order these as an optional extra in the accessories menu.

Due to the alarms being wireless, something like a jammer, what would happen then? Would the alarm go off due to tampering or would the system not react?
Michael, Belfast
The alarm has a secure rolling code transmission signal and enhanced anti-jamming detection which would trigger the alarm if tampering in this way was attempted. This unique code is used by the system to determine that the correct remote control is attempting to contact the alarm.

Are these alarms compliant with Grade 2 EN50131 when fitted as a DIY project? Thanks
Anonymous
To be EN50131 compliant the alarm must be professionally installed and include an annual maintenance check.

Can the door sensors be configured to activate an alarm if the door is left open (after a configurable delay) even if the alarm is disarmed?
Gary, St Albans
The door sensors cannot be configured in anyway if the alarm is disarmed, the door sensor will only work when you set the alarm and notify you when its triggered.

In the instructions it says the PIRs should be fitted 2 metres from the floor. Will it effect performance if they are fitted higher as would prefer fitting closer to the ceiling at say 3 metres?
Bryan, Westhoughton
The PIR's could be fitted higher but you would need to adjust the angle to ensure that motion is detected and enable the best coverage of the room in which it is fitted.

Does the standard PIR, which is included, allow for a cats movement around the house Or would I need to purchase the special pet PIR?
Sara Haveron, ERITH
No, the standard PIR will trigger the alarm if there was any type of movement in the house. You would require the Yale Easy Fit Pet PIR Motion Detector which is ideal for small household pets.

What size pets do the pet friendly sensors allow for? I have a large dog approximately 42kg.
Lisa, Brentwood
The limit on our pet friendly sensors is 25kg so unfortunately this would not be suitable for yourself. However you might want to alarm the room by fitting a Yale Easy Fit Door Contact to the door or window. You would then be alarmed if you encountered any intruders trying to enter.
