Product Description

The best wireless home security system value on the market, the 8-piece Simplisafe2 Plus Package features pre-programmed sensors that work together instantly -- right out of the box -- and you can install them and fully protect your home in 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.


It Shouldn't Cost a Fortune to Protect Your Home

For decades the alarm industry has tricked homeowners into signing expensive long-term contracts, charged hundreds for installation, and pushed alarm systems ridden with outdated technology.


SimpliSafe believes being safe should be simple. With no salesmen, contracts and hidden fees, SimpliSafe designed a powerful new security system that uses the most cutting-edge wireless and cellular technology to guard your home for just $14.99 each month.

Easy to self-install, the Simplisafe2 wireless home security system is 100 percent wireless and doesn't require a contract or a telephone line.

Introducing Unbeatable 24/7 Security for just $14.99

SimpliSafe knows that the safety of your home and family matters more than anything else. With 24/7 Professional Alarm Monitoring, expert monitoring specialists watch over your home every second of the days and are always on the alert and ready to contact the police or fire department in the event of a burglary, fire or carbon monoxide leak in your home. You're also given a courtesy call if a freeze or water leak occurs in your home.

Bloated prices won't give you better security. SimpliSafe guards your home with the highest caliber security available, U.L.-certified monitoring, for only $14.99 each month. Most alarm companies charge you three times as much for the exact same level of security!


New Wireless Alarms Save You Hundreds on Set-Up

Nobody wants a stranger drilling holes in their wall -- so why should you pay over $200 for messy installations? SimpliSafe is wireless and installs in minutes: all the sensors arrive pre-programmed and ready to be mounted. No tools required, now wires, no hassles.

Plus, wireless means that you can easily take your system with you, wherever life may take you next.


Dedicated Cellular Defense

SimpliSafe is invincible to intruders. Burglars know that most alarms use phone lines that can be cut in seconds. That's why the SimpliSafe system uses a built-in, independent cellular connection that's five to ten seconds faster and can't be cut! It comes absolutely free with your monitoring, and there's no phone line required.

Smart Technology Keeps Your Home Safer

Most wireless alarm systems have a dangerous defect -- if a burglar smashes the keypad quickly enough, the police don't get alerted. SimpliSafe has solved this problem, by hiding its brains in the Base Station.

Even if your keypad is smashed, SimpliSafe will still alert the police.

Power Outage Protection

SimpliSafe was designed to keep you safe in the event of a power outage. Wireless sensors run on powerful lithium batteries that last 5 years, so you stay secure when the electricity fails. Plus, the Base Station comes equipped with a built-in rechargeable backup battery, which can power your system for two full days and be recharged at any time.


SimpliSafe Guarantee: No Contracts, No Risk, No Hassle

Our customers keep coming back because of our exceptional security and legendary customer support, not because of contracts and commitments. No contracts means no cancellation fees, no minimum commitments: no hassle.

What's in the Box

One Keypad -- Unlike other alarms, if a SimpliSafe keypad were smashed, the alarm would continue to function. That's because SimpliSafe took the "brains" out of the Keypad and put them into the separate Base Station.

One Base Station -- Plug-and-play, the Base Station is responsible for sending all your alarm signals to SimpliSafe's 24/7 alarm monitoring center. Using the same cellular technology that's in your mobile phone, it includes a SIM card that gets activated when you subscribe to the SimpliSafe alarm monitoring service.

One Motion Sensor -- Detects motion within 30 feet. The sensor has a "field of vision" of 90 degrees, giving you a full range of coverage when placed in a corner.

Four Entry Sensors -- The sensor detects whenever the magnet moves more than two inches away from it, so it knows whenever the door or window opens. The magnet can be placed up to 2 inches from the sensor, so sensors fit on all types of doors and windows.

One Keychain Remote -- Arm and disarm your alarm with a push of a button. Set your alarm to away after you leave to protect your home. Simply press off to disarm your system as you approach your front door. Pressing the panic button alerts SimpliSafe's Emergency Monitoring Center that you need help fast.

If you're like me, you HATE monthly reoccurring charges, such as cable, insurance, cell phone companies (I'm looking at you Verizon), etc. Why burn money every month on reoccurring charges? I like to have controlled costs and very little "renting" reoccurring charges. But, I also have a family and like to feel secure, along with getting the home owners insurance discount often offered with home security systems. I've used ADT, Brinks, Broadview, etc. at prior homes. However, when I moved, I wanted to avoid having a land line (cell signal is virtually radioactive in my house, even in the basement). However, the biggest problem I had was that most companies charged ridiculous rates for their wireless monitoring service ($5 additional was the cheapest I could find). In addition, the base monthly rate was fairly high, averaging about $35 (ADT was charging me $45 w/o the wireless), with Ackerman coming in the cheapest at $18 (w/ wireless, they were $23/month). I thought about using Ackerman because I preferred a "professional" doing the job, much like when I had ADT. But, when I experienced their sales rep, lack of customer service, and overall horrible experience, I knew they weren't a legit company I wanted to trust my home and money to. ADT and all of the other more high profile personal home security companies were far too expensive and I would either have to get a home line or pay extra monthly. So, I looked into "Do it yourself" home monitoring and found this company along with two others (one is sold at Lowes). This one seemed to have the best monthly price, price of equipment, and reviews, so I decided to bite the bullet and give it a try despite my hesitations of the unknown.Read more ›

I installed this system on 06/14/2013. I did a bunch of research and found many of the online reviews to be dated and inaccurate since the new SimpliSafe2 came out in 2012. I absolutely love the system but if you don't think through your purchase you might be disappointed. Let's talk about the gotchya's:

1) Buy extra sirens! The base unit comes with an 85db siren and if it's the only one you have then the thieves will know EXACTLY where to find it and smash it before your 30 second entry delay is up. Extra sirens will beep on the entry delay and when in full alarm sounding mode they will drown out the base siren and the thieves will be less likely to find your base station and destroy it before the signal goes out to the monitoring company.
2) Buy extra motion sensors for rooms with your most vulnerable windows. If a thief smashes a window the entry sensor will never trip since it never moves. Security is always best in layers! I chose to add motion sensors for my doors as well so I have TWO layers of detection on all my most vulnerable entry points.
3) The cellular network used by SimpliSafe is T-Mobile. Make sure you've got a good signal. I'm in the middle of a major city so this is not an issue.
4) The wood screws that come in the package are not good for mounting entry sensors on steel/metal doors. You might need to make a trip to the hardware store for appropriate screws if you don't want to use the double sided sticky tape provided with the equipment.

Now let's move on to unadvertised, yet complained about, issues:
1) All new equipment can be mounted with screws. Take the extra time to screw things in.

I write this from conviction that people thinking of investing in this alarm system alternative need a more thoughtful review than the many here who quickly post a gushing review and the few who post nonsense negative reviews.

1st Simplisafe is easy to install yourself and it is a quality budget alternative to the big alarm system companies (who rely on less than ethical sales methods) who relieve people of a few thousand dollars and lock them into an expensive 2 to 3 year monitoring contract.

The hardware is easy to install and get working & for less than $400 most people can seriously discourage felons from targeting their home. Simplisafe is much more up front & consumer oriented than other alarm companies BUT Simplisafe sales department does do its share of hype & exaggeration. You cannot install the sensors & motion detectors in the mindless simple way you are lead to believe. If you slap them up in a few minutes, you will regret it. Take a few minutes and determine the best places to position the sensors & detectors.

The advertising shows people just mindlessly sticking sensors and detectors around their house. Then, in response to criticism that people report their senors or detectors fell off, Simplisafe blames it on the owner for not (dah...) cleaning the area first. Even that is hype because cleaning is not enough. It's not wise to just rely on the sticky tape for the heavier pieces, especially the keypad and the motion detectors. Simplisafe techs know this which is why each sensor has a removable installation panel with two screw holes and screws.

There are two significant flaws in the Simplisafe system which Simplisafe advertising and information tip toes around and buyers do not realize until after they buy and install their system.
