SimpliSafe Wireless Home Security System Review

It goes without saying that security is of the utmost concern to many homeowners. In the past, home security systems were truly a luxury with expensive hardware and installation. Even then, if you could afford your own home camera system, you were not likely to see an event until after it occured – forget about seeing footage in real time from work!

Recently, we’ve covered the Amazon Cloud Cam Security Camera, but what if you want something a bit more robust? Then the 12-piece SimpliSafe Wireless Home Security System may be exactly what you need.

What is SimpliSafe?

The SimpliSafe Wireless Home Security System aims to be a “frustration-free DIY” home security system. For around the cost of a modern video game console, SimpliSafe’s 12-piece bundle includes:

  • SimpliSafe base station
  • keypad
  • entry sensors (x5)
  • motion sensors (x2)
  • panic button
  • key fob
  • SimpliCam

Leveraging modern technology and a decade of experience with an install base of over 2 million homes, SimpliSafe is able to offer home protection that is within reach for most homeowners. And you guessed it – it’s even compatible with Amazon Alexa!

Context is Everything

No one wants to get the alert that their home is in danger, let alone the stress and hassle that comes with a false alert. SimpliSafe is easy to understand and simple to install, but that doesn’t mean you need to worry that a light breeze will set it off inappropriately. Nor need you fear that your home may be compromised when that late-night power outage hits.

No-contract 24/7 professional monitoring starts at $14.99 per month with direct police dispatch in moments of crisis. The included Base Station uses a built-in cellular connection and Wi-Fi to transmit alarm signals to SimpliSafe’s six monitoring centers. In the event of an emergency, the SimpliSafe Base Station includes a 24-hour backup battery and 95dB siren. For further protection, the SimpliSafe Wireless Security System comes with an entry keypad that will alert police if would-be intruders attempt to remove it.
