What are your thoughts so far James? Is it much cheaper than an RX40 (which it looks similar to, minus the light pipe for the LED)?

The tamper switch looks suspiciously like the dodgy ones they used to use in the days of the FX35 etc.

1st point yes, approx 50%

Its a quad. Looks nice, has an optex badge plenty of room,

Downsides Not sealed, no resistors optex stamped into case

re tamper point. Thought the same but it meters ok. No ex35 variable resistors yet

At first glance they look good.

Couple of spare terminals, extra space for cables at top, quick release cct board

Tamper switch looks different.

They could easily add a seal to the lens

Yes, although cant say Im unhappy with Activ8's tbh, so these would need to be good.

Yeah the active8's are ok and they have loads of models, ie with cameras, dualtech etc.

I tend to test internal sensors by mounting them outside against a dualtech.

The best performing quad i had tested this way before was the hkc quad. But to be fair to this little unit its matching the hkc for false alarms (sun light usually) and genuines.

But the hkc ones have been outside now for nearly a year.

So it's been over a month James what's the verdict? I quite fancy picking up a couple to try them out as the is215's are slowly creeping in price.

How many standard detectors does everybody stock? We have a G2 DT & Quad and G3 DT & Quad.

Same wired detection for both domestic & commercial.

G2 quad and G3 DT. Keeps things simple and stock levels minimal. We're using the Bosch Blueline Gen 2 Quad and the Guardall DT15+. Best combination of detectors we've used, especially since Bosch re-designed the Blueline range into a smaller casing.

iWise quads, DT's & quadsec for domestic and commercial. We only use these at grades 2 & 3, much easier to manage.
