SimpliSafe is the best value wireless security system on the market: SimpliSafe is the only fully featured alarm system that offers 24/7 alarm monitoring for just $14.99/month with no-contracts, and includes a free cellular link. That is an unbeatable value you won’t find anywhere else. When you purchase an alarm with us, we’ll pre-program all your sensors to work together instantly, right out of the box. You can install the sensors in your home and you’ll be fully protected within 15 minutes (or less!). all systems are fully customizable, so you can start with the sensors listed in this package and add more of the sensors you need, whenever you want. Unlike other wireless alarms found on Amazon, SimpliSafe is reliable, secure, and offers the same quality protection you’d get with ADT or another behemoth security firm without the nasty contracts they’ll bully you into signing. Try SimpliSafe to discover the better way to secure your home.
Simplisafe2 is a Great Balance of Price, Ease and Security.
If you are looking into security systems, there is a good chance that it means you were recently broken into. I’m so sorry that happened to you. It’s so frustrating, and you will feel so paranoid for weeks at least. Get a security system, and perhaps some cameras, but definitely get renters or homeowners insurance. Hopefully soon, you will not feel as upset as you do now, and you can get back to normal.
It is alarm system like every other on the market but you can’t beat pricing, trust me, I am alarm installer.
I’ve been dealing with alarm systems as an installer for a while. I know the market pretty well and I know there is no major difference between brands or monitoring companies. All alarm systems work pretty much same way. Simplisafe is cheap, so that was the main reason I got it. I want to add few cents as some reviews and some issues described are just funny for me. Certain people expect thing you can’t expect from specific product. I.e. Simplisafe will not be liable for malfunction. Of course, no company will. If you think you can go to ADT after having your house robbed and they will pay you for your losses, you are wrong. In fact when I asked Xfinity if they could provide me with reliable system, customer representative just said “no”. So do not expect that. Also, most of sensors come with sticky tape for mounting. Do not depend on it. Use screws. Screws that are supplied are a joke. I couldn’t tell what they could be used for. They are just tiny. Go to hardware store and get right screws otherwise your sensors may just fall off triggering alarm. Also realize that even though sensors are “pet safe” if you have a small pet sitting 5 inches from motion sensor it will trigger alarm. Remember also that for monitoring with internet and phone access big companies will charge you upward of $60 a month. Simplisafe is $25. So make sure you compare apples to apples. Someone said that when you leave door or window open system will not notify you. It actually will and I think it’s a great feature that you can leave window open and still turn on the system. Useful in the summer. One thing I really don’t like, comparing it to Honeywell Lynx, is that you can’t name you sensors. It is possible in your online account so when you get text alerts you know which sensor it is, but not possible for home use. I am used to hearing “Garage door” when wife comes home. This system will just chime, but won’t say which door or window. You just know entry sensor was triggered. I’m really disappointed because it is something that could’ve been done just with a firmware update. No extra cost to manufacture. Overall it is a standard alarm system and will do its job like any other alarm system. I wish the keypad was a little more advanced. No backlight for keyboard is an issue. I just started using it, so I will keep posted if anything goes wrong.
Be informed. This is an important purchase.
After I bought it I read that it was easily disabled by using a cheap cell phone scrambler you can get on ebay. I’m a radio engineer so I tested it. True. So don’t publicize that you have it with a Simplisafe sign. Maybe use another vendors sign or generic if it is that important to tell everyone. Hide the transmitter & keypad from view so repair-people dont see what kind of alarm you have.
Not perfect, but a strong system and good value
After resolving some initial issues, I am happy with my SimpliSafe system after a month of use.
It Works, I found out the hard way
Well I can honestly say this works, although I recommend that you pair it up with some kind of camera system like dropcam (which is what I have).
