If you’re in the market for a new security system, check out the SimpliSafe Security System!  The SimpliSafe Security System offers full home protection.

Unlike other security systems that can take a while to install and/or require professional installation, SimpliSafe can be set up in just a few minutes.  No drilling or tools necessary!  Simply plug in your Base Station to begin.

The Base Station is the brains of the whole system.  If one sensor or camera detects danger, it sends a signal to the Base Station, which sounds a siren to notify you immediately.

You can personalize the SimpliSafe System to your particular needs.  You can start with the Keypad and Base Station and add on whatever you need!  Here are the options you have to choose from:

SimpliSafe Security System Options:

Burglary Sensors:

  • Entry Sensor: Protects doors and windows; works with any door or window
  • Motion Sensor: Covers and entire room; get at least one for a main room or hallway
  • SimpliCam: See what’s happening at home anytime from your phone, tablet, or computer; it’ll forward alerts to you if the camera detects motion
  • Panic Button: If you’re home during an intrusion, press this to immediately trigger your alarm and dispatch police
  • Glassbreak Sensor: Picks up the sound of smashed windows

Hazard Sensors:

  • Smoke Detector: Triggers when a fire’s still smoldering—before a full fire breaks out
    • Loud system-wide sirens can jolt you awake
  • Carbon Monoxide Sensor: You can’t see, smell, or detect this deadly gas, but this sensor does!
  • Water Sensor: Detects leaks and potential floods, so you can stop water damage before it happens
  • Temperature Sensor: Triggers if your home’s temperature drops below 41ºF so you can stop pipes from freezing and bursting

Optional Add-Ons:

  • Extra 105dB Siren: “About as loud as a Led Zeppelin concert in 1972”
  • Keypad: An additional Keypad can be purchased for garage door entrances, back doors, or upper levels of your home; no power necessary!
  • Key Fob: Works similarly to your car’s key fob; simply press a button and your system will disarm before you enter your house
