Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Very easy to install wireless alarm. Logical installation process. No fuss and mess and more importantly you're protected!
Bad points:
No bad points as such - only that to completely cover the house in security you must buy add-ons. Having said that, this package was enough for our needs.

Iain, London

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Wireless sensors easy to install and no need to route cables around the house.
Hopefully will be at least something of a deterrent to burglars.
Bad points:
Have only given effectiveness 5 because it's almost impossible to measure the effectiveness of the alarm system. Not really a useful measure to rate this product.

These DIY alarms are generally not recognised by house insurers so it won't reduce your premiums.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
It seems to work!
Bad points:
Confusing and badly laid out installation instructions - Instructions say, "Ensure that you have done X before ..." without telling you where to find how to do X - so you spend 20 minutes searching for the relevant instruction.

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
It is easy to use once you have understood the instructions.
Bad points:
Installation and programming was tricky. Some of the instructions were not clear. Once you have worked out what they mean and you have installed the equipment it works well. Not for the DIY amateur.
