Easy to install, works fine, cost effective but...

Make sure you check cell coverage with T-MOBILE before you order. If no T-MOBILE coverage, check Verizon (they have a Verizon module but you must call company directly to get that). If no Verizon coverage you need a land line for monitoring.
Also the $14 or so monitoring fee they quote is a BASE package. If you want text and email alerts it's about $21. That is not easily found in disclosures. Monitoring is EXCELLENT with very fast call response.
No contract required.

Perfect for Home OR Small Office
Posted by: ApostleO from: on
It was the easiest thing I've installed all year and maybe this decade. Really, efficient and well worth the money. I am shutting down my ADT System and making the switch. How can I not, when it's proven to be Owesome!

Incredibly simple to setup and use!
Posted by: tonka from: on
This is by far the best alarm panel installation I have had ever! It works right out of the box without having to do any complex pairing or programming. The USB stick that comes with it allowed me to do all the programming from my laptop as I setup the devices around the house. Once I was done, it loaded the programming onto the usb key, then I just stick it into the home base. It automatically downloaded and presto, I was up and running. This is so simple anyone having a massive blonde moment could still figure it out.

Easy to install & maintain
Posted by: CelticSLO from: on
decent price and easy to install and replace components without an expensive service call. Monitoring service beats my former companies, Vivint and ADT.

Great Home Security System
Posted by: CRN555 from: on
I have been hearing commercials on the radio regarding Simplisafe Home Security Systems. I have actually researched them online previously as well. I was extremely happy to see that Best Buy now carries them! Set up is so easy & I am happy my home is secure.

Easy to set up/maintain, clunky design
Posted by: rsancheti from: on
This security system literally only took me 15 mins to set up and was working very quickly (no ADT hassle). Also it is very easy to order more sensors from their website and add it to your home security system. Overall security wise it is just as good as other systems (if not better due to their cellular hub) but costs around half the price, and the customer support is pretty good. Only issue is that the sensors are a little bigger than other companies and don't look that great (but thats not a big deal :)

I am very surprise how well this system works. The customer service is friendly and very helpful. I just put this system in my home and I did trip the alarm and they were calling in seconds to see if everything was all right. I feel they have a fast response time in calling. The system was easy to put in and the coast was right for my budget. So far I am happy with it, and I have notice that the house down the street has the same thing. This really works.

tried and tested...it works
Posted by: vrobert from: on
It works very well! Just be careful when you leave the home setting on. I used my front door with the alarm on which startled me when it went off. In about one minute I got a call. I was so spooked by the alarm that I misspelled my password. The dispatcher center didn't take anything to chance and notified the police. In about 8 minutes there was a policeman knocking at my door. Outside of being embarrassed, I was very impressed with how well it works. So far, I have only used the motion sensors and the door/window alarms, but I think I'll try the glass breakage alarms, as well as expand my system. Installation is quick and easy. I am trying the more expensive monitoring package, as I often leave my house in such a hurry that I forget to turn it on. So far, its great! The only flaw I can think of is with the Keychain controller. If you have it in your pocket while at home, I think you could easily set off the panic button and/or arm the system. In any case, for the money I think it's a bargain.

home alarm system
Posted by: pecanpooh from: on
I love that the system does not come with a contract like ADT. I was able to set up the alarm by following the directions. I had to get a local alarm permit from my local police department The customer services was great to help get start. Good product to get start.

Beware of the wifi signal of this security system
Posted by: Evac from: on
If you have a lot of equipments using wifi, make sure it didn't mess up the wifi. We had this problem and still trying to solve it. Rather than that, it is a pretty good security system.
