This alarm system was exactly what I was looking for. I wanted to avoid drilling holes all over my house and having ugly wires everywhere. My only concern initially was that other wireless gear would cause false alarms but the supplier assured me that this would not happen and since installing there have been none. I think it is an excellent alarm and really easy to install. All the window and door transmitters and magnets fit via adhesive pads so I didn’t have to drill into my new doors and windows. My window frames have an angled bezel shape so it was a bit tricky getting the sensor and magnet close enough to make contact. I would suggest putting on the adhesive pads but then temporarily holding the transmitter and magnet in place with tape in order to get the right positions before committing to the more permanent adhesive pads. As long as the green light comes on when you open the window or door it is ok.

The perimeter switches and PIR’s (and remotes) were all pre-configured so once fitted can work independently. You have a home setting which allows you to arm the perimeter switches but not the sensors which is great for us because we have dogs and can still arm the alarm when we go out for short times and leave them. Because it is wireless I was able to include our dogs outside shed and run (close to the house) in the perimeter of the alarm.

The outside siren box is charged by sunlight once initially charged for 48 hours. I will update later on how this performs in our grey old winters but it is of good quality and pumps out a lot of noise. There’s a red light that pulses when it is on. One warning though when fitting this on your outside wall, before you screw the back on the alarm box you need to turn on the on/off switch inside. The box clips onto a metal bracket that you have previously mounted with 4 screws. There is obviously a very sensitive tamper switch that does not like the box being messed with which is good but not when you are fitting it. Like me you will be up the ladder and will go to clip it on it’s bracket and it will go off in your face and this is not pleasant. So have the remote in your pocket and maybe some ear plugs in, (the control unit was disarmed when this happened). This is probably unavoidable so still 5 stars, but just be prepared. Obviously make sure you have tested your remote before doing this.

As far as the control unit is concerned, you need to order a standard sized sim card before receiving your alarm as it uses this to call your selected number and notify you via your own recorded message that your alarm has been triggered. You also have the option to send the alarm commands by selecting numbers on your phone keypad,for instance disarm it (if you also have cctv for instance and can see what’s happening in your home remotely). I think the alarm has a microphone as well and seem to recall the manual said you can monitor it from your phone as well. This is all great stuff

So, so far very good experience and I can’t see any reason to suspect that this alarm will not continue to be of good quality/value and long lasting but if that changes I will update this review.

This is an ideal Alarm system, there are many functions and all useful, the GSM function is very clever, this system is easy to install, you can install a pay as you go SIM card, so the Alarm is able to notify your mobile phone, of its actions, plus, you can give commands by phone. The solar powered siren works well, all the main parts have a anti tamper switch, The only criticism is the leads from the power supply are too short, limiting your positions of main unit, but,having said that, this is a very good product, gives piece of mind, looks smart, and would highly recommend. To also add, the sellers are very helpful and knowledgeable on their products.

We purchased this alarm after having our garage burgled just before xmas. It took about 3 hours to install my husband did it. It came with everything and it’s really easy to use. The key fobs are good to set and unset the alarm. We have a dog and you can dis arm zones so it doesn’t go off. It’s really loud too and so far we’ve had no false alarms. It’s been on the outside wall a month and we’ve not had to charge the solar box yet. So far we are impressed with it with no problems and I had a question which was answered quickly by the supplier.

  1. just wondered if you could change the names of the door contacts and other sensors.Just finally got mine installed after issues with main unit power supply, but this is all sorted now.
    Alarm will txt me things like
    “11 zone urgent help alarm”. kitchen PIR
    ” 13 zone urgent help alarm” front door contact
    “01 zone door alarm”.Back door perfect
    Can these names be changed to reflect actually where the sensors are Chris L

      Thanks for your question. They can be altered but there are only a few preset location ID’s that can be used. These are as follow;
      SOS Alarm, Fire Alarm, Gas Leak, Door Alarm, Hall Alarm, Window Alarm, Balcony Alarm, Boundary. They are very specific and not particularly useful to be honest which is why we don’t make a big mention of them in the user manual.

    Hi can you please let me know if the charger lead supplied with the siren is to use only for the 48 hour charge or does it need to be connected all the time?.

    • globalgadgets

      It depends on which siren you purchase. If you purchase the solar siren then it just needs connecting for that original 48 hours, if you purchase the mains powered siren then it needs that connection all the time.

  3. Hi
    Recently purchased the Ultimate Alarm kit and I must say how well it works and a big thank you to the team for exceptional customer service and support.
    A great Company to deal with and a well satisfied customer. The ability to remotely control my Alarm and get instant status messages is superb and offers a great peace of mind.
