the quality of this system is very high,it has been around for a very long time so when purchased will require a new back up battery without question,(it contains a sealed lead acid type battery ,which when stored for long periods of time ,even after being fully charged will be very low on volts and will not charge or hold a charge,this is no ones fault ,as this is the current technology)remote controls are of high quality and performance is very good in regards to distance and reliability,indoor piezo siren is very loud and of industry standard,detectors are very high quality and very accurate and reliable,two detectors is more than enough for a single story house,dick smith should bring this or similar product back,it's products like this that made dick smith an electronics superstar,in conclusion everything you need is included and all you neen to know is how to read the queens english as it has a very good and complete instruction booklet ,well done dick smith and rhino co technologies.
Pros: high quality
Cons: it's not free

I purchased this product back in 2000 it is only now (2011) that Ive got a problem the same battery has lasted 11 years, the only prob I had was that it never set the first time all the time it would double click back, to say that it had not set it self but always did the second time, and would always go off when triped so pretty good in my mind
Pros: great for the price and easy to install
Cons: would always require a second set then was good
 I would recommend this to a friend!

I just purchased this alarm system and I must say it is a very good system.
I live in a particularly safe area, an area where a monitored alarm system is just unnecessary. One feature i like most about this system is how it tells you if there has been an alarm situation while you were gone. It beeps twice when you disarm it, when it has been sent into alarm mode while you were away, it will beep 4 times, letting you know that someone has broken in - before you enter! I find that a very good feature as my son arrives first in the afternoon after school and he is home alone for an hour or two. He knows to go to the neighbours house if he hears those special beeps.
On the negative side, however, the factory backup battery system is not powerful enough to power the alarm if mains power is disrupted - this low battery capacity will result in irritating 'low battery' alarms every time you disarm it. Instead of the standard '2 beep' disarm sound, the system will beep 10 times to alert you of the weak back up battery system, annoying you, and your neighbours.
Also, i had to purchase 4 additional sensors to provide adequate protection on my house.
Pros: ease of use
Cons: lack of sensors, back up battery will cause malfunction from new
 I would recommend this to a friend!

This system presents excellent value for money. Just be sure to read the instructions carefully as the power saving feature could confuse the novice.
Pros: great battery life, very accurate trigger system, durable
Cons: no reed switch
