    Value For Money

    Pros:  great in summer, easy to install
    Cons:  ineffective in winter, no way of connecting alarm to a power source

    "If you live in a country that is sunny all year then this is great, sadly we live in a country that isn't. Once the temperature drops and the days shorten the main battery struggles to hold a charge, even after replacing with a new fully charged one."

    Value For Money

    Pros:  great value for money
    Cons:  main box needs direct sun light to work effective

    "Great value for money easy to set up and install. The door/window contacts appeared a little bulky when I first saw them and thought I would have to screw them to my UPVC window (didn`t want to do that) good news the pack comes with double sided tape which does an excellent job at holding them in place. One thing to note, the main solar powered box does need to be in direct sun light to charge effectively, I made the mistake of putting mine just under the eaves, however it still works. The remote is an excellent way of arming/disarming the unit we placed ours on velcro some where safe so we all know where it is but can still remove it if necessary. No false alarms yet and its been up about a month. Highly recommended cheaper by far then lots of the others out there and all very neat looking."
