Today we will be reviewing the Vinker VK-6A wireless plug and play security alarm system.
There is one basic factor that all home and business owners are concerned with, and that is safety.
And the crazier our country gets, the more we might think about these things.
Whether you own a house, rent an apartment, or run a shop somewhere, you want the peace of mind that you are safe there.
Studies have found that homes and businesses with NO security system have a 300% higher chance of being broken into than homes with a security system in place.
This is not a calming statistic.
That said, security systems have changed from the way they were in the past.
You no longer have to purchase expensive equipment and hire a security company and pay monthly monitoring fees.
In fact, there are many affordable DIY systems on the market.
About Vinker Tech
Vinker Tech exists with the main goal of providing cost effective security systems to their customers.
They understand that many people would like a home security system but can’t afford it, so their goal is to provide something that bridges the gap financially, but still provides quality to the customer.
There are several different packages available from Vinker, but today we are just focusing on the Vinker VK-6A.
This Vinker security system comes complete with the following items:
- 1 Wireless Strobe Siren – this is the alarm host
- 2 Wireless Remote Controls
- 4 Door contact Sensors

Additional items include things like window/door sensors and wireless alarm detectors.
Here is the system you get as is. It’s a nice looking system, and wouldn’t be out of place in either a home or a business.
You can also tell from the looks of it what it is, but it’s fairly aesthetically pleasing at the same time.
The Vinker VK-6A is what we’d consider easy to install DIY system. Meaning, the majority of users find they are able to install the entire system in 15 to 30 minutes.
The door sensors (which can also be used on windows) come with double sided tape. You can simply remove the adhesive and push the sensor wherever you want it to stay.
This wireless system is programmed before it arrives at your house. That means it is a complete plug and play system.
Once you have the items installed and the strobe siren plugged in, the parts will all properly communicate with each other. The wireless communication reaches 150 feet.
The alarm host (strobe siren) can be mounted on the wall, but it can also be set on a table.
This unit will need to be plugged in, so many consumers decide to keep it on a table where they have easy access to an electrical outlet.
Overall, the users that review this product report that they are amazed at how easy the installation is for it.
This system is a kit is great as a beginner’s kit to help you get your foot in the door with these types of systems.
The kit, as we said off the top, is affordable, which allows you to purchase it without going into major debt.
Since the system is wireless and inexpensive relatively speaking, you are able to easily add on extra sensors and alarm detectors at any time.
This allows you to buy the kit and test it on a door and a few windows.
Once you know you like it you can purchase the add on items to cover your entire house.
The Vinker alarm system can handle up to 99 different sensors and is even able to work with add-on items such as smoke detectors.
The kit comes with two remote controls.
These easily allow you to arm or disarm the system without needing to walk over to it.
You can use the remote from up to 50 feet away.
You can also alarm and disarm the security system remotely while you are away.
This is a nice option if you are at work for the day and have a house cleaner or dog walker that will be stopping by.
While the alarm host is required to be plugged in to an electrical outlet, there is a battery backup provided.
That means that you can still have peace of mind that your house is protected even when the power goes out.
