    Visonic PowermaxComplete, siren batteries not lasting

    We find the seem to last around 2-2.5yrs so we just change when servicing alarm at 2yrs. Siren only has to do 1 x 10 min sound off and youve hammered the battery!!

    Visonic Powermaster-10 .. and Powerlink3

    As long as the panel and Powerlink are purchased in the same region, you will have no problem using the alarm in any other country. A point worth noting is that the UK Powermaster panel language is fixed in English and cannot be changed - I know this as I took a system to France and fitted it...

    Yale Sync Smart Home Alarm any good

    The new Yale sync is a budget system built in china.......its rubbish! The older SR340 is a far far superior alarm system and its built in house for Yale - best DIY'er kit on market

    Pyronix - indoor wi-fi camera's - advice please

    Go pro control without doubt.... The pyronix HIK cams are a massive improve the on the last few years. We used 5 last week with a HIK 8ch nvr....really good. As a pro installer these cams give an alarm system the visual option and later the flexibility to switch to full cctv system. Customers...

    Pyronix - indoor wi-fi camera's - advice please

    Yes indeed the Pyronix cams are actually Hikvision and not to be compared with Swann junk! The cameras will connect wireless to wifi and can be viewed independently on procontrol app with no annual cloud charge. They can take SD cards OR be wired into an NVR to make a complete system.

    Hikvision camera's

    Personally I wouldn't bother with 8MP...the nightvision is not so clever, we have gone back to HIK 5MP which seems a good balance. Also 8MP cams will fill HDD a lot lot quicker. Also if your only fitting 3 cams go with the new HIK Power over coax......Its great for small installs , have used...

    Any need for wired CCTV now that we have Ring etc?

    I recently went to a computer security show and they used Ring CCTV to show how easy it is for hackers to break into Chinese systems... They reckon it will be the biggest domestic hacking threat next year due to popularity of ring... Stick with your coaxial system and add Hik 5MP cams - they are...

    ADT Powermaster

    Evening all, visited a new homeowner yesterday and in their home was an ADT Powermaster 30 system.....classic ADT, over sell, 3 keypads, 2 repeaters and pirs upstairs...I dread to think what cost the system alone would have been... Anyway the system is in an old barn with some very thick walls...

    Wired smart alarm system options

    We fitted a pyronix Euro 64s with wifi module this week to replace old optima set up.... Highly recommended and it means you have full app control via pyronix cloud just like an Enforcer....they are pricey but it's well made...were saying goodbye to Tex going forwards! Matt

    Pyronix Enforcer Alarm - Year 2 onwards Maintenance

    I do not think £80+VAT is unfair......If your in business yourself common sense will confirm its not unreasonable.....By the time system is checked batteries are changed, its a 2hr job if done properly.....Plus the onus is on professional to get alarm working. What happens when you have a...
