    I’ve had these alarms for a couple of months now and they do everything that you would expect.
    When I first got them out of the box to familiarize myself with them they looked a bit space aged. At first when setting them up l thought “all this button pressing is too fiddly and time consuming”. What happened to a standard, functional twist knob for volume, sensitivity ect?
    However, when you get used to this side of things it becomes less of a chore to do but still too time consuming.
    They come already programmed to the receiver but they’re reasonably easy to unprogram and reprogram
    Adjusting volume and sensitivity becomes easier after doing it a few times
    Being able to change led colours is a bit of a novelty but unnecessary.
    Build quality looks and feels a bit cheap but they are pretty good in the rain… no water ingress but I’d still dry them out when you get home just to be safe.
    Wind doesn’t seem to affect them either.
    The bivvy light is cheap and if I’m honest, I don’t bother with it. If it’s a selling point for you, you’ll be disappointed.
    On the whole for the dough… they’re pretty decent.
    If you’re a technophobe… they ain’t for you.
    If you’re on a budget and want a functional set and you have a PhD in computer science so you can operate them then I’d recommend these

    Sonik SKX Alarm & Receiver Set Reviews

    The Sonik SKX takes bite alarm performance to a new level. With twin bright 5mm multi-colour LED’s you can choose your preferred colour combination. The intelligent mute function allows you to quickly, conveniently and silently adjust indicators or line tightness and will automatically re-arm the alarm after 30 seconds. The intuitive control system is quick and simple to operate and the 3+1 set comes complete with protective alarm covers and removable snag ears. Fully weatherproof design and protected electronics ensure these alarms keep performing through the harshest of conditions.

    The included bivvy light also has a host of features with six different delay and brightness settings. It can function completely independently as a standard bivvy light or when synchronised with the alarm heads provides an extra level of illumination. Each alarm can also be assigned a colour channel so that you instantly recognise which alarm head has been triggered and perfect placement is easy with both hook or magnetic bivvy attachment plate.
