    Quite a few things are in need of fixing – then it’s 5 Stars!!, November 14, 2015

    This would get 5 stars if the following were fixed:
    1. Regardless if using the iPhone or Android app (I use both), you cannot add as many sensors as they advertise (100). You cannot add any sensor beyond the 96th sensor. Yes – I have that many!
    2. Once sensors are installed you can group sensors into Zones. A zone can consist of “All Door” and “All Windows”. You can also create a zone for a room: “Living Room” which can have an entry door and windows. Here’s the problem – on the iPhone app, you can reuse a sensor, so the same Door sensor added to the “All Doors” zone can redundantly be included within the “Living Room” zone. NOT SO with the Android app. Once a sensor is added to any zone, you can never reuse and redundantly add it to a new zone!
    3. The Sensor Icons appearing in your main System screen or on any Zone screen CANNOT be re-positioned – moved as you can on your smartphone. This is a HUGE FAILURE in both the iPhone and Android apps as you have to pre-plan the exact order of adding sensors as the layout is sequential and in the order of entry for the Main System Screen – and the Zone screen ordering is – as far as I can determine – random.
    4. The cameras (I’m using two to test and determine their usefulness) part of the apps (iPhone & Android) needs a lot of work. I was able to install a 3rd party camera app and this includes greater control of the cameras than the SkyLink app provides. With the 3rd party, you can turn IR lighting on/off; adjust contrast; adjust brightness; and create 5 fixed positions for where you’d like each camera to be looking at, then select a given view or even have the camera auto scan from view 1 to 2 to 3 to 4 to 5 (but it does not repeat which ought to be included, as should a continuous sweep back and forth). Manual pan and tilt control, however, is better in the SkyLink app. UNFORTUNATELY, I have not found an Android 3rd party equivalent (I’ll call Tech Support next week).
    5. There are as yet no options to purchase and install outdoor motion sensors. I successfully waterproofed an indoor motion sensor and installed it outdoors to see how it would work. It was kinda OK, but not as good as SkyLink’s HA-434 RTL system (incompatible with the SkyLinkNet System). A MAJOR BENEFIT to having a SkyLinkNet Outdoor Motion Sensor is, as with ALL SkyLink Net Sensors, when an event occurs, it triggers a pushed notification to your smartphone. Now you can login to your SkyLink system and read the Event Log where you can determine which motion sensor was triggered and date/time. Should you have an auxiliary DVR storage system, you can remotely replay the event.

    Customer Support has been superlative – and I’m sure if SkyLink reads this review they will certainly know who wrote it. SO – hello guys, hope you can get these issues fixed as it has been taking a bit more time than it should to get things squared away. Therefore I’m giving this 3 stars due to the number of months which have passed since I’ve documented and fed back these shortcomings in need of being fixed.

    Regards, Bill

    This is a great little alarm system for those who want smartphone control and notifications, and don’t want to pay a monitoring service. Setup was extremely easy. The components are surprisingly tiny and inconspicuous. You can easily stick the sensors anywhere you like using double-sided tape (the tape that comes with it is adequate, however, I found that 3M Outdoor double-sided tape worked even better). The motion detector is not suitable if you have pets. My chihuahua sets it off, so I am unable to use it. My only complaint is that the siren could be louder. Even though my hub is centrally located and my house is small, it is not very loud for someone coming in from a back or side door. You can certainly hear it, but it’s not very intimidating! I ended up purchasing the M-4 alert system so that I could put a second siren in my garage. (There is also an outdoor siren you can add, though it is pricey.) The iOS app is a little bit buggy, but so far I have been able to do what I need with it. I like that this system can be expanded to include other home automation products by Skylink. I added one of their plug-in dimmers so I can control a lamp as part of my system. It is a little confusing as to which of their other products integrate with this particular system, however, when I emailed customer support I received a prompt and helpful answer. I look forward to more components and app improvements in the future.

    Bought this for my daughters ground floor apartment and she loves it so far. She said it was very easy to set up and the customer support online has been helpful. I would recommend checking out the phone app that can control the system before purchasing the remotes. She uses this, instead of the remote, but acknowledged that having the extra remote will be good for guests or dog babysitters!
