Description

The eTiger ESB-WS2A alarm system consists of a base station, a motion detector, a magnetic contact, and 2 remote controls. After an easy installation process, it's ready for use straight away. You can decide how you want to be notified. If you have Internet, you can install the eTiger app on your smartphone (iOS and Android) to control the alarm system remotely. If you don't have Internet, you can choose to be notified via SMS message or via a phone call. The base station uses AC power, but in the event of a power failure, for instance, it'll automatically switch to the backup batteries, so you'll always be sure that your alarm system is working. The sensors are connected wirelessly to the base station and with a range of 80 meters, you can position them wherever you want.

    Definitely don't buy

    • Hardware looks good, different from the picture
    • Wifi installation does not work
    • Supplier does not respond to support email address
    • Translations to English and Dutch in the app are very poor

    The hardware is the same as the Eminent but the software is very bad. In terms of installation flow via the app, you can't really go wrong, but it just doesn't work.

    Definitely worth installing cheaper.

    • Fast up-and-running with or without SIM
    • controllable via iPhone/Android app
    • use with a SIM card is an option, so not necessary, and can therefore be used free of charge
    • as functional as all other eTiger controllers, only cheaper
    • fewer included accessories in this eTiger starter pack
    • the manual could be updated

    I have researched and tested several eTiger base stations, and find this one, the station without an accompanying keyboard, but with WIFI connectivity the most interesting. This base station does not have a keyboard or sensor on the hardware itself, but it does have the same functionality as those it do have. Therefore, it does not matter where this station is located in the house (can even be in a cupboard or in the basement), this system allows you to use the app (Secual Box V²) on your smartphone (and of course by prior 'single-sign- on' authentication) to operate your alarm system without additional mobile operator costs (per SMS, per call).
    To do this, you only connect the base station to your WiFi, and you control it wherever you are via your available data or WiFi network from your smartphone. The other way around is of course also possible: this controller can be operated completely by SMS...
    If you still want a keyboard with or without an RF-ID reader, for example for the cleaning lady, you can place it anywhere in your house and wirelessly connect it to the base station.
    On the other hand, a negative point is the limited manual supplied, which meant that trial-and-error tests were necessary for me beforehand. Anyway, once set up, it works well and reliably.

    sorry thing

    Pieter V | 7 January 2018 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Looks solid
    • Unclear app
    • Bad WiFi connection

    I bought this product through another medium, but I still want to give my feedback.

    It looks very nice and solid. I have no complaints about the material used. However, once started with the installation, the device appeared to link poorly with the WiFi. Everything now performed as shown in the manual. It took me, not lie, 45 minutes before the wifi connection was established. And then it's still a question of how this happened.

    The magnetic strips to attach to a door/window are easy to install and work properly. The included motion sensor was a different story. Pairing with the device was done fairly quickly, but triggering the alarm system is not self-evident. In fact, when the alarm was turned on via the app, the motion sensor was working properly. If the alarm system was switched on via the supplied remote control, the motion sensor did not work. It had to be reset again before it worked again. Very frustrating because that way you never know if the sensor is working or not.

    In short, the device was promising and I had high expectations. But in the end I took the device back to the dealer and got the purchase price back. Its a shame, but there is nothing to do about it.

    Nice security system for little money
    • Can be used both WiFi and mobile phone
    • Adding sensors is easy
    • Complete system and is expandable
    • Installation was not clear. Cost me a lot of time
    • Few sensors as standard

    Once you've installed it, it's user-friendly.
    Before installing, it is advisable to read the full user manual of the eiger site carefully and then it will work.

    Not to install
    • Support does not respond
    • Installation failed
    • Design different from advertising

    Bought this alarm system (sorry not via Coolblue) because of the specifications, however, both me and my colleagues (all IT professionals) were not able to connect this device to a WiFi network (tried 3 networks). The installation manual is brief and installation videos do not match the App to be installed. Hardly any information can be found on the internet about using the set and support does not respond. I wouldn't buy this system despite the nice specification.
    I have not been able to test range and reliability, so I only gave it 3 out of 5 stars.
