Product Details

Yale 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 Telecommunicating Alarm EF-KIT2 is a fully featured alarm system designed for any type of home. The system is armed or disarmed using a PIN code on the touch screen keypad and includes a pre-set 20 second entry/exit period. When the alarm is triggered a loud external siren will sound to alert others of an intruder. Providing the keypad is connected to a landline telephone socket the system will also alert you via telephone when the alarm is triggered and can be activated and deactivated via a touch tone phone.

In the box


PIR Motion Detector2 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.

Door Sensor Contact2 x Door Sensor Contacts
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.

Outdoor 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.

Touch Screen Control Panel1 x Touch Screen Control Panel
The control panel is used to arm or disarm the alarm system via entry of your own unique PIN code. The touch screen should be fixed to a wall and connected to mains power and allows access to advanced alarm features when connected to a landline telephone socket.

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 phone
The alarm system can store up to three individual telephone numbers and will ring them in an order you choose if the alarm triggered. You could store your mobile, work and home numbers ensuring you are alerted immediately.

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.

It was fitted by my son in law who has fitted one before. He found it straightforward as with his own which was fitted a few months before. I am pleased it has a dummy external box so the house has one back and front. I am hoping this will deter burglars. The alarm is loud and set to give me plenty of time to disarm it in the morning. I will buy another control panel for upstairs so it can be switched off more easily in the mornings. I like the ability to switch off the upstairs alarm which I do...

This alarm does what it says, is easy to use and seems reliable. Installation was logical but confused by initially trying to follow the installation guide to the letter and by me or the unit getting confused, some sensors appeared to come up with the same areas/identities. if in any doubt or confusion or any other problems in the initial setup do not waste your time as I did persisting for hours in this mode just end the initial setup, then go into the programming mode delete the problematic se...

Great product and easy to install, but ensure you have power and telephone socket in the location you are installing in otherwise you will end up with wires all over.

Great bit of kit and works well. Only wish I gone with the key pad and not the touchscreen. Find it hard to see first thing in the morning.

Never having an alarm before I was put off at the thought of having wires run everywhere until I came across this system, easy to fit, even for me and easy to use. The bright yellow alarm box makes it a very visable deterant and is loud enough to scare any intruder, being battery powered there's no need for wires except for the control unit that only needs a plug socket. I would recommend this to any novice DIY bodger, if I can fit it anyone can! Great alarm system at a very reasonable price mak...

Good product but ,in my opinion, the Yale installation and programming instructions could be a lot clearer. Still struggling to get electronic fobs to work.

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.

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.

What are the movement sensors connected to and how much of a distance can their be I.e. Detached garage?
Mr Hunter
The PIR movement detectors are battery operated and should be located no more than 30 meters away from the Control Panel.

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.

Is it possible to remotely activate/deactivate the 'Yale Easy Fit Telecommunicating Alarm' using a mobile phone (non-smartphone)?

Thank you.
Anonymous
You can activate or deactivate this alarm using any touch tone phone by pressing the buttons on the phone keypad. This includes landlines, mobiles and SmartPhones.

To control the alarm using an app on a SmartPhone you would need the Yale Easy Fit SmartPhone Alarm.

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.

Do you have to have this alarm connected to a telephone socket if your not needing the telephone communications aspect? Or will it stop the panel working?
Anthony, Birmingham
The control panel is battery powered and will still operate as an alarm without being connected to the phone line. If the alarm is triggered the siren will still sound as normal, but you will not be notified by phone.
