Easy Fit Telecommunication Alarm Package

The Competition is now closed and the winner is:



Many thanks to all those who entered!


As you may know from my previous post I do have slight OCD when it comes to security! Fitting an alarm to your house is one of the easiest and most simple forms of home security. Installing an alarm is so much easier than you would expect, especially with the Yale Easy Fit Alarm priced at £219.00.

Yale have a fantastic range of home security systems and home burglar systems.

There is no need to worry about marking walls, laying cables or even hiring a qualified electrician to install the security device. The steps are very simple and all instructions are included.

Alarm can be fitted in 3 easy steps

  1. Enter the time, phone number and PIN number
  2. Just fit the wirefree sensors where you want
  3. Test it for peace of mind with our Easiest Testing Facility
  4. That’s it! You’re ready to go!

    My father in law tends to do it. My husband doesn’t have a clue which normally isn’t a problem because we rent. However it would be nice if he knew how to a least hang a picture :0)

  2. jane colwill says:

    I do all the DIY in the house with the exception of plumbing and electrics. Things like painting the children love helping with too, they have to learn sometime

  3. Wendy Lam says:

    It’s actually my mum as my dad is so impatient he gets nothing done and ends up blaming the product itself or the ‘poor’ instructions as he would say.

  4. Rebecca Parsons says:

    My step dad is a builder, but as he’s a bit of a ‘bodger’ I ask my mum to help with most DIY situations hehe 🙂


    My partner does it – badly, I normally try and rectify it only to make it worse – and we end up getting a professional in to fix our mess!

  6. Jacqui Miller says:

    Myself and believe me, I’m no expert but as I don’t have anyone to ask then I have to do the best I can (and have learnt remarkable patience in doing so lol), especially with 4 sons who always seem to find ways that require my ‘patience’.

  7. Caron Twyman says:

    I would say myself and my partner share the DIY 50/50. He does the emergency stuff and I suddenly get it into my head to paint a room!

  8. Jamie Darby says:

    My Wife does the DIY, my last attempt made me see the red mist and I took a Sledgehammer to our walk-in-wardrobe…so yeah…ive been banned from that.

  9. Brigitte Leprince says:

    I do the DIY in my house because my partner works abroad and nothing ever needs fixing when he is here in the UK!

  10. Michaela Williams says:

    We do DIY together with my hubby, already spruced up half of our first house.
    Most recent job was taking our chimney breast in front room! Hard work, but amazing result, have huge living room now 🙂
    You can do so much yourself these days, just have computer and google at hand 🙂

  11. Paula says:

    I do, I’ve been single for a long time and have got used to building my own shelving from scratch, tiling floors and walls, knocking down a 6 fireplace chimney breast and making good the floors and plastering the walls. I’ll try anything except electrics, gas and plumbing

  12. Rachael G says:

    I have tweeted using the tweet button (hope that’s okay as it doesn’t say exactly the same thing as the competition tweet!?)


  13. Kathleen Marsden says:

    I have always done the usual DIY jobs, but for the larger things I have to get the professionals in as my husband wouldn’t even know how to wire a plug

  14. Wendy says:

    My husband does quite a bit but he can’t manage to do anything without someone to hold the ladder, steady anything he’s cutting, pass things to him or paint the fiddly bits while he is doing the large areas. Then of course he doesn’t expect to clear up any of the mess.

  15. Sally Carter says:

    It used to be my husband until he became a bit infirm. Now, I have a go at decorating and simple plumbing but usually end up employing a tradesman!

  16. cecelia Allen says:

    My builder husband does all the drilling and sawing and I put everything together, I also do all the painting, decorating and repairs but it is only because I have more patience

  17. sian hallewell says:

    I do all the DIY at my house, sometimes with the aid of my daughter (she’s much stronger, so helps when I need a bit of muscle!)

  18. Alison M says:

    It’s a shared task in our household…both myself and husband (though anything intricate I do or it’ll end up in pieces or with paint over the edges!)

  19. Beth Riding says:

    Its a joint effort from myself and my partner..well at least I like to think so it usually consists of me dictating and him doing hehe.

  20. AbbyP says:

    Ummm…………my dad comes over to do all our DIY………but he is a carpenter so he’s much better than myself and my husband

  21. Clark says:

    Unfortunately for my wife and me, I do the DIY. Anyone can do their own DIY, it’s just takes for bloody ever!! Bought a project house almost 2 years ago and I’ve still got so much left to do. And seeing it was I who convinced the mrs to get the project and said I could do it all up myself, it’s safe to say she’s not a happy bunny (and now a very pregnant bunny at that!).

  22. Susie M says:

    It’s a joint effort in our house. We’re both quite handy and actually quite enjoy it, which friends and family find a bit odd!

  23. Helen says:

    We share the DIY in our house; I like painting the woodwork and my hubbie enjoys the emulsioning, perfect pairing, neither of us can put up shelves though

  24. Alfie Davidson says:

    I do as much DIY as I can but for large or complicated jobs I call on the services of my brothers-in-law. One is a builder, one a carpenter and one an electrician 🙂

  25. Kelly Hooper says:

    My husband does all the DIY since I decided to paint our half tiles bathroom and used a full 2.5 ltr tin of paint 😀

  26. Nathan Wood says:

    we will be buying our first house on the coming months, but i am sure ill be doing all the DIY. This would be a fantastic addition to our first house

  27. Lisa Ellison says:

    I ask hubby to do diy but it normally ends up being left or me trying to attempt it. But if I have to ask more than once it’s classed as nagging !

  28. Christopher Bell says:

    It’s definately my wife that does the DIY – me? I’m hopeless and I’m not sure what my excuse is since my dad is a sparky and he loved DIY! I feel ashamed!!! 😉

  29. Caitlin W says:

    My mum is the queen of DIY around here; she was a single super mum when I was growing up so had plenty of opportunities to perfect her skills. Although she does get a little bit too creative sometimes…

  30. Laura Williams says:

    My husband does all the DIY…. please let me win so I can give him something new to do, as he gets under my feet!!! 😛 lol x
    Thanks for a great giveaway! 🙂

  31. stephen holman says:

    i like to attempt DIY in our house and have had some success in fixing the front door & the tumbledryer but have had loads of disasters also so my partner tends to ring a handyman when im at work to come and fix things!!

  32. Syvlvia Lomax says:

    I am the one who knows how to do the DIY in our house but my husband is the one with the strength needed to do most of the jobs.

  33. Honora Livesey says:

    I do most the smaller diy tasks, but I do have to ask Dad for tips before hand and he assists with the bigger jobs around the house. This sounds a fab alarm kit and easy to set up.

  34. Darren Berwick says:

    My wife to be convinced me she was great at DIY – been married for nearly ten years now and it turns out I do it myself…

  35. Amanda Rose says:

    I’ve used Youtube and the internet to help me but mostly I have to hire someone in … might invest in some evening classes 🙂

  36. Joanne says:

    My dad and father in law do some bits and the rest is done by whoever we get in. I don’t really trust my other half to do much.

  37. Jo Kelly says:

    My man likes to think he does all the DIY – in truth I go round & ‘fix’ everything he accomplishes 😉

    PS, North West Bloggers rule 😀

  38. Dawn Costen says:

    Mainly me, other half helps now and again!! I really like doing it – it takes me an eternity to do stuff because I am a bit of a perfectionist but worth it in the end!

  39. samantha roberts says:

    I do all the DIY in our house. My partner likes to take his time doing things so I would rather get on and have a crack myself at least. Ok some of the blinds are somewhat wonky but you’d never know from outside and the curtain pole is held up by no nails glue but hey its working!

  40. Trevor Wood says:

    I always did the DIY in our house but now I am disabled and can only manage very easy tasks. We now tend to leave things as far as possible then pay for jobs that have to be done.

  41. DAVID OCONNOR says:

    I am very lucky in that both my dad and father in law are very handy and help us out a lot with DIY. I am a complete novice but still do bits.
