    agreed but that isn't the feeling from the police themselves. To be fair to matt b he said the same a while ago. The advent of all self mon systems puts us to the point that 999 calls from any system will get a better response than a urn. We also have done the same re cctv. Why go 8418 when you can get a response?

    Bizarrely we had a takeover recently where the customer was told by the Police that they were removing Police response from the company that they were with for telling people exactly that. The Police had contacted SSAIB and everything apparently. I personally would not rely on self monitoring, the amount of times a day I miss calls because I have left my phone in my car, office, workshop, store room. If I am in a meeting my phone is off, there are plenty of places I go where I have no signal. Much better to have a monitoring station dealing with my alarm problems

    from my end the app is the selling point, not monitoring. Had 2 quotes this week for coppers, both said police response was useless they both said they wouldn't attend in time. I thought if the lads that get the call think its useless what to advise be better when/if ever

    You got keyholder , police or remaniac response?

    And I connect mine to an ARC and the app is a free add-on, whereas the app is the selling point for you.

    Twice as much? Nah cost difference is small GSm drops to Can't see why you would have single path only , perhaps it's because I looking at it on house bashing point of view so cost difference to have both is minimal

    But you can use it as GSM only though and only pay for gsm

    I think the gsm only card has been replaced by the dual path one
  17. PeterJames

    Alarm System Advice for Newbie

    of course, but it costs twice as much as Wifi alone or GSM alone and so if you dont need dual path, and the Wifi drops out alot, and you cant be assed to fit a lan card and run a network, just fit GSM on it own

    That type of bell hasn't been manufactured in many decades. Replace for an SAB of your choosing you may find a model with the aesthetics your looking for. If you need help with the wiring upload a picture of the panel end terminals and we can try and point you in the right direction. https://www.securitywarehouse.co.uk/catalog/intruder-alarm-c-36/sounders-c-36_45/

    Hi Every body.I have just registered and would like to ask a question please. I have an excisting alarm.The alarm works fine, but the outside bell sounder does not operate when the alarm is activated.I have removed the bell,(which is very old and a circular bell inside the bell box).I would have just liked to replace the round bell, but it is proving quite difficult to replace with another round bell.There are only for wires into the bell box red and black to the bell and blue and yellow are tamper and go to a micro switch that is activated then the screw is removed from the bell box. Could somebody please tell me as the wiring is so basic what type of bell box I could replace it with or where I can buy a round bell to go in the existing bell box.

    But I assume the GSM switch over is the advantage yes?

    how old is this

    the problem is that there are 7 terminals 1 and 2 are power but 3 needs a 26.3khz signal? 4 is alarm 5 is tamper 6 and 7 are for a remote led
  22. james.wilson

    how old is this

    it uses Doppler effect
  23. sixwheeledbeast

    how old is this

    Like most "wave" devices. It sends a frequency into the room and monitors for changes to the signal reflection.
  24. Logan

    how old is this

    do you know how this thing works all I know is it runs on dc and requires a 26.3 kHz signal from something
