Burglar Alarm wireless interference?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am considering installing a wireless alarm system in my house.  Most of the ones I am looking at (Yale e.g. IA-210) are 868Mhz and I understood this was a better frequency than 433Mhz as it is less 'busy' so less prone to interference.

Unfortunately, I have just discovered that the wireless thermostat that controls our central heating system also operates on 868Mhz.

Please can anyone advise on whether it is likely that there will be interference between the thermostat and an alarm system operating on 868Mhz?

 

Thanks, James

It's possible , especially with DIY stuff and depend on position of sensors and other factors batteries , what heating controls you have , some are worse than others

Yale is the worst choice you can make. I would not be too concerned about thermostat interference with a decent, 2 way wireless system, e.g. not Yale.


So, I've decided to take my work back underground.... to stop it falling into the wrong hands

Yale are not too bad at locks but not as a CCTV / Intruder alarm suppler IMHO, if you have the skills / knowledge to fit then look at Pyronix enforcer but I would thoroughly recommend getting an installation company in to assess your home & vulnerabilities.

That way hopefully you can have peace of mind

More items are using 868 now as 433 was congested. 868 is now very close to 4G mobile too.

Your better to safe your money than fit DIY tat

I would normally fit wires where possible but that doesn't mean a professional grade two way security system wouldn't be stable.

But it's still a recognised brand. It's assumed im assuming that makes it better than the professional stuff. As Pete has said previously 'wonder why b&q etc don't have a yale bell on them' good job they have a decent system protecting all that yale stock....

I agree it's tat but did think it was unique tat designed and made in China for Yale, never seen anything much like it without the badge?

Although I guess at the end of the day the sensors are probably the same as any other reference design with a unique looking case...

Only because Yale panels don't have enough zones...

There is a difference with what I import to the tat that Yale imports, those panels are made by Unifore and rebadged we looked at importing them even purchased a couple of samples. But they were a pile of rubbish

Could be because in China it would be the right way up.
