    Recent thefts in neighborhood made adding some security necessary. We were looking for a means of being alerted to potential intruders on the property before they could approach the house, as we live on 5 wooded acres. I also was looking to monitor some outbuildings on the property. We purchased the Skylink long-range system with 3 additional sensors. After a month and some adjustments, the system is performing so well that we have ordered 4 more sensors.

    The additional sensors were easy to program, install, and integrate. I have yet to replace a battery. They are remarkably effective for a relatively low-cost yet long-range wireless option. I had to adjust them all to a lower sensitivity setting (an easy jumper change in the battery compartment), as the first few nights they had me up every time the wind blew a leaf. Since adjusting the sensors, I’ve only been up once a night (take your pick of woodland animal looking at me when I go to investigate). So far, the smallest animal to set off a sensor was an opossum. The sensors do twinkle red when tripped, so you can visibly tell when you’ve triggered one.

    The receiver unit is reliable, but could use a few upgrades. Thankfully, the sensors can be programmed to different zones (up to 4 sensors in each of the 4 available zones for a total of 16). When triggered, the receiver sounds an alert sequence corresponding to the zone that has been triggered and flashes a red LED on the unit in the appropriate zone. There are 3 available modes of operation (Off – which still flashes a visible alert, Alert – which functions as described previously, and Alarm – which would wake the
    dead). I’d like to see another alert mode, that would simply chime or chirp only once or twice, and a volume wheel.

    My sensors are installed at various distances from the house, the farthest are about 80 wooded yards from the house. In all, I’m very impressed with the system and highly recommend it, if you don’t mind dealing with a few alarms triggered by animals. Great bang for your buck here. Why no 5th star? When I emailed the company to see if this system would integrate with their auto dialer, I received no response. Bad sign.

    Early this morning at approximately 3:00 a.m. one of four sensors went off. Three beeps in succession told me that there was potential trouble in my back yard. I got up and turned on my surveillance monitor and noticed a perp. throwing my copper wire over the fence. I grabbed my handgun and flung open my garage man-door. I was 8 feet away from the perp. as he jumped over the block fence and I yelled “GET DOWN, GET DOWN! He tripped and fell down as he was scrambling to get away. I yelled “STAY THE F*** OUT OF HERE! as he was running down the street. WITHOUT THE WIRE!
    The value of the wire was approximately $200.00 so this investment has more than paid for itself!
    The system works better than I expected. I’m very happy to recommend it to others. I will be purchasing another system (base unit and three motion sensors) to set up at our cabin.

    I’m surprised that so many people found this alarm effective.

    The main problem is that the alarm function is only active for 3 minutes, even if water remains present. This means that if you can’t hear the alarm when it first goes off (if you’re out of the house, or out of earshot), and you don’t return within 3 minutes, you’d only know that there was an alarm by the presence of a red light on the unit. What good is that?

    I wanted an alarm that would sound when the sensor was in the presence of water. Simple as that. This device is not guaranteed to do that. What am I supposed to do – check the LEDs whenever I return to my house to see if I missed the alarm?

    Then I tested the alarm range. It failed to receive its signal from about 20 feet away (vertically, through two floors and some furniture).

    The sensor battery door is also hard to remove. I tried to open it for a minute, but gave up because I realized I can’t get any use out of this alarm anyway.
