In the box


PIR Motion Detector1 x PIR Motion Detector
The detectors 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 external siren.

PIR Image Camera1 x PIR Image Camera
The camera PIR should be placed to provide the widest angle of the room it is protecting. When the alarm is armed an infrared sensor will detect any movement and activate the loud external siren and at the same time capture still images of the intruder. The images are then sent to your SmartPhone. You can also request still images of the room at any time via the SmartPhone app.

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.

Siren Box1 x Outdoor Siren Box
Fitted in a highly visible location on the exterior of the property the loud 100dB siren will sound and the LED will flash when the alarm is triggered.

Outdoor Dummy Siren Box1 x Outdoor Dummy Siren Box
Fitted to the exterior of the property the Dummy Box will add a further visual deterrent to a potential burglar.

Keypad Control Panel1 x Keypad Control Panel
In addition to SmartPhone control the keypad can also be 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.

Wi-fi Control Box1 x Wi-fi Control Box
The control box is the heart of the alarm system and is connected by an Ethernet cable to your broadband router. Once connected to your router the control box connects via wi-fi to each device on your alarm system.

Features


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.

Alarm notification by SmartPhone
The alarm system will notify you by email and text if the alarm is triggered.

Smartphone App
Alarm control by SmartPhone
You can access all of the alarm settings and features via the Yale Home System App (available for iOS and Android). The system can be activated and deactivated using your SmartPhone and you can view images captured by the PIR camera. Video can also be viewed when combined with the optional PIR Video Camera.

Part arming by zone
The alarm can be set to create two different zones allowing you to arm one or both zones. This can be especially useful if you decide to split the upstairs and downstairs of a property into two zones. While away from the property you would activate both zones and during the night you could activate only the downstairs zone.

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.

* Requirements: This alarm system requires a broadband internet connection with a router that includes one free wired network port. SmartPhone must be iOS 9.0 and above or Android 4.2 and above.

Good product. But with a limited product line of additional accessories and sensors. Mobile phone software is flaky, sometimes taking several attempts to initiate software to set or deactivate the alarm. Limited distance of siren from the base station. No signal booster available. No reset on the box after an alarm trigger. The box has to be completely switched off, including the built-in battery, to reset the alarm. The door entry key pad needs to have the code input several times before it works. Text notifications are cryptic and not clear English. Initial set up is straight forward and sensors can be easily added, although the siren is difficult as you need to test it in several locations to ensure a good signal. Otherwise the siren just keep going off. All in all the product is convenient as it can be set and unset from a mobile phone.

It's a fantastic product that is easy to install and setup. The mobile phone app is brilliant as you can activate your alarm from your smart phone where ever you are esp when you forget to activate on your way out. The sensors are really good and pick up instant movement. Overall the Yale smart alarm has given me reassurance that my home is safe when I'm out and when I'm asleep in the night.

Having looked at the options for providing a cost effective , reliable and easy to install solution, we decided to purchase the Easy Fit Smart Phone Alarm.

The requirement was to have an effective deterrent for one of our customers who has a retail unit providing high value fashion, with a large flow of customers through their door.

With the Easy Fit Smart Phone Alarm system we created a Safe and reliable solution. The visibility of the Yale Siren and additional external cover were prominent and made all customers and passers by aware. With the addition of some further door sensors and a panic button the system delivered the complete requirement.

A very Happy Customer indeed!

The Yale easy fit alarm was exactly that. It was simple to set up and also straightforward to install. We bought extra door and IR sensors which also integrated into the system no problem. Delivery from the website was prompt and all of the items were included and arrived undamaged. No special expertise is needed to install this system, any person competent in DIY will be able to do it. The wireless nature of the setup is a bonus as it makes the installation minimally disruptive to the look of your rooms, and there are no ugly wires trailing around.

Fantastic product. This alarm system blows the competition out of the water. The free App, which is used in conjuction with the alarm on my android phone (also available for Apple products too I believe) is easy to set up, use and live with. Love the fact that if i forget to set the alarm, I can log on remotely and set it, as well as view instant photos from the PIR sensors. Pound for pound, there is nothing better. I honestly believe you'd struggle to get a similiar system professionally fitted. I did quite a bit of research prior to going for this package - It's easy to add additional sensors or accessories at a later date, and a complete idiot like myself found it a doddle to fit - I am totally satisfied. Also, the best deal was on safe.co.uk. Go for it - you won't regret it.

The Yale Easy Fit SmartPhone does exactly what it says on the tin. The Alarm is easy to install although i would recommend you watch the yale easy fit smartphone video to give you a visual idea of what to do as the manual is a little confusing at times. The app gives you easy access to your alarm system 24hrs a day which is a major bonus and well worth the upgrade from earlier/cheaper versions. All in all very pleased with our new alarm system and would recommend to anyone thinking of purchasing a new one for the home, it really is a great piece of kit for the price :)

Bought this to replace old wired system that was no longer working. Did not want all the hassle of running new wiring so thought the wireless option sounded good. It does feel and look well-made and was easy to install. Had a bit of a problem registering and getting the phone app to work but Yale helped and it was soon up and running. I bought the optional key pad so that I operate it in the same way as my old system. However, I can now operate from my phone and like that it sends me notifications by SMS or email whenever it is set or disarmed or when tripped or has a fault. Very happy with product and service from Safe.

The Yale wireless alarm system is very easy to install if you know how to drill a hole in a wall and use a screwdriver. No installation cost, even the fixing screws an raw plugs are included. Good smartphone application working better with a fast broadband connection. I would like to see more easily the level of charge of the batteries for each device as I don't know their rate of usage and I would not like the system to run out of power when I am on holiday. Altogether, this is a brilliant alarm system with a very good value for money and I would recommend it to anyone.

Excellent product very easy to use and very easily installed by anyone. Most items are already paired when it is delivered to your door. I previously had a wireless alarm for around 12 years but I remember fitting it myself and it took forever, everything had to be paired individually which on its own took forever and also had to be redone.From memory I think it took a full day opposed to my present YALE one which after reading booklet took about 2hours. Very easily installed and operated. My only criticism all be it a personal thing is that when you set it to exit or go to bed you have the choice of a single or constant BEEPING. I chose the single BEEP as when I set it to go to bed the BEEP is VERY VERY loud and if anyone in the house is already in bed it wakes them. It would be handy if you could adjust the volume. All in All A first class product from a first class seller and the after sales enquiry I had was handles and solved very quickly and professionally. I would have no hesitation buying from or recommending the seller or the product.

I needed a comprehensive alarm to protect a Grade II listed house, so wireless components was a major consideration,to avoid any damage. Looked at lots of self install and commercial systems and came to the conclusion that Yale would meet all my requirements at a very cost effective price and can be easily expanded as well. Installation and set up instructions are easy to follow and very comprehensive; if you can manage a screw driver this is very straight forward. My only concern, prior to purchase was how many false alarms I would get. After two months I haven't had any and the online reporting & logging system works like a dream. I have installed two PIR cameras outside in very sheltered locations to protect the rear of the property should anybody approach the back having scaled a 6 foot brick wall. Although this is not recommended in the setup, so far I haven't had any problems. So I might consider using another to protect the lead on the roof !. Minor issue is that the video PIRs run the batteries down very quickly, so don't be tempted to keep testing them or keep taking remote screen shots. All in all an excellent system at around a quarter of the price of fully installed similar systems. Highly recommended.

Overall the product is excellent and extremely easy to set up (hardware-wise) and the ability for multiple users to control with their phones is excellent.

There are two main drawbacks. First, the Android app isn't reflective of the high cost; it is functional but was clearly made for iOS and ported. This means it's fairly unintuitive (back button exits app, not back one screen) and looks pixelated. Second, the instructions for setting different zones and sensor behaviours are somewhat lacking.

However, these are minor gripes - we're still very happy with the purchase and would highly recommend.

The system is very good and if you are fairly good at DIY it is easy to install. After initial pack I bought l purchased extra pet PIR's and keypads. The home setting for when you go to bed is also good as long as you remember to shut off before going down stairs. The pet PIR's allow our cat to move around without setting alarm off. As it has a good range I even hav a PIR in the garage up the garden. I liked the fact that on a recent holiday 250 miles away from home we had someone going in to feed the cat etc and on the iPhone it monitored when they went in and out and once when they got code wrong set off alarm and took pic of them which I could view and another neighbor emailed to make me aware that alarm was going off, so all in all very happy. Thank- you

Do the PIR's have a flashing sensor? Just trying to assess the battery life of them.

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.

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.

Would you fit both a PIR and door sensor in the same room, or is that unnecessary?
Augustin McLean, Gillingham
It is recommended that you do not point the PIR directly at a door which includes a door contact sensor. It is not necessary to have both as just one of the sensors will trigger the alarm when somebody enters the room. There is also a chance of technical issues as the signal can get delayed.

Is it possible to set different zones etc.

E.g. can I arm the system and all sensors, door contacts etc. when I am out the house but at night arm the system and just the door contacts?
Mike, Nottingham
The alarm can be set to create two different zones allowing you to arm one or both zones. This is useful if you decide to split the upstairs and downstairs of a property into two zones. Whilst the property is empty both zones could be active and during the night you could activate only the downstairs zone. This is known as Part Arming and is described in more detail on the Details Tab of this page.

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.
