Engineered at Harvard, Expert Approved
For 100 years the home security industry has been selling outdated technology at highway-robbery prices. Often sales reps will try to scare customers into signing long-term contracts that are full of nasty fine print.
We believe being safe should be simple. SimpliSafe security systems are easy to self-install, easy to purchase direct online, and don’t require a phoneline or long-term contract. They are also wireless, cellular, and customizable: It works anywhere and will fit any house, apartment or business.

describes SimpliSafe alarms as
Many alarm companies have absolutely huge sneaky hidden fees. They advertise their alarms as being “from $99”, then they get you to sign a contract for over $1,000—and you can’t leave them for at least 3 years. But SimpliSafe alarms have no hidden charges.
We’re so confident you’ll love your SimpliSafe alarm that we’ll let you try it RISK-FREE with an incredible no-risk 60-day money back guarantee. SimpliSafe alarms are reliable, easy to use, have no contracts and no hidden costs.
9 Things to Avoid When Choosing A Traditional Alarm Company
We listened to all the things you dislike about traditional burglar alarm companies... then fixed them.
|Traditional Alarm Company||SimpliSafe: a Better Way|
Old wired technology. Traditional alarm companies want to put wires in your walls, because they know that ripping their wires out is hard and expensive.
|State-of-the-art 100% wireless technology. We took the latest in micro-chip technology and developed smarter software to offer you a robust and reliable security system. With wireless, there are no holes in your walls.|
Monitoring is $42.99 a month.
Ours is just $14.99 a month. This is the same level of security that the traditional companies provide. It’s called “U.L. certified monitoring.”
The moment you let them put a system into your home, you’re typically locked into a $1,547 contract with no way out.
No contracts! Our customers stay with us because of our excellent product quality and helpful customer support.
Auto-renewal clauses grab another $1,547 from you if you don’t cancel them within 90 days of the end of your three-year term. Forget to cancel? You’re legally trapped—there’s no way out.
No hidden charges, no commitments, no sneaky tricks.
Many frustrated customers (just google “alarm system complaints” or “alarm contract complaints” and see for yourself).
Growing by word of mouth. See our Facebook fan page.
Uses a phone line to connect to the monitoring center. Burglars sometimes cut phone lines.
Uses its built-in and independent cellular connection, which is 5-10 seconds faster, and is uncuttable. No phone line required.
Prices are kept high because there are so many middlemen and salespeople involved.
We don’t have expensive salespeople or middlemen. That’s how we can afford to keep our prices so low.
Installation typically costs between $99 and $500. You’ll need to take a day off of work, while the installer drills holes in your walls.
Set-up is easier than you could ever imagine. No tools needed, just adhesive pads. The unit actually talks to you while you’re setting it up. One of our customers purchased a second system for his daughter’s home and was “looking forward to the joy of installing it for her.” Watch our easy installation video to see what he means.
Does easy set-up mean the system is flimsy or less secure? No! Quite the opposite. No wires means there’s nothing for burglars to cut. Read more.

|“No installation, no contracts, very smart.”|
|“Everything is included, and it’s portable so if you change apartments, you can just bring it with you.”|
|“They’re cheaper and don’t require hardwiring like traditional services do. You’ll be alerted by phone, text message, or email if a door or window is opened.” see review|
|“David vs Goliath, SimpliSafe vs ADT: SimpliSafe aims to upstage their larger rivals by giving consumers what they really want. Even without fancy marketing, word is spreading.” see review|
SimpliSafe is not for you if...
You have a HUGE home: If your home is larger than 20,000 square feet (about the size of a football field)—or if it has more than 50 windows on the first floor—you would probably benefit from a system that can handle a huge number of sensors. Our advice would be to go to a traditional contract security company—and keep in mind the things we’ve warned you about.
You run a large commercial property such as a shopping mall—you would probably benefit from a system that has CCTV or security guards, in which case you should probably go to one of the traditional contract security companies—and keep in mind the things we’ve warned you about.
However, if you’re one of the 95% of people who don’t have a huge home, & don’t run a large commercial property, then SimpliSafe is probably the best choice for you. If you’re in any doubt, contact one of our security consultants at 1-888-957-4675 for free friendly advice.

Customer Review: Donald Meehan
“I have had my system for about 6 weeks now my wife and I love it. We just lost power for four days, I took the base to my in-laws and recharged it twice. It worked great during the power outage. I spoke to some neighbors who have also recently got alarms with other companies, they were very upset because their system died pretty quickly and were not able to recharge it.”

Extreme Range—and Fully Customizable for Your Home
SimpliSafe sensors have a huge range of 400 ft., so our system is perfect for homes and businesses of any size (unless you live in the Superdome).

Smart Sensors Never Mistake Pets for Burglars
SimpliSafe uses more precise motion sensors to ensure your pets won’t trigger your alarms. Simply place your motion sensors where your pets can’t fiddle with them, and your cats or dogs can comfortably play at home without triggering an alarm.
It’s Easier Than Ever to Test Your Sensors
Homeowners with big pets love this trick
Normally, the Motion Sensor looks straight out and down towards the ground. If your pet is triggering the sensor, just place it about 4-5 feet above ground level, and turn it upside down! This way, your pet can’t trigger it, but an intruder will!
Moving is Easier than Ever—Fully Portable Alarms
All SimpliSafe Equipment will fit a new home quickly and easily. Moving to a larger place? No problem. Order extra sensors anytime
We include extra 3M command strips in every box, making it easy for you to move sensors to a new home. These adhesive strips are super strong, but are also engineered to pull off cleanly without damaging your walls.
What is an “auto-renewal clause” anyway?
Most alarm companies have an automatic renewal clause in their monitoring and service contract (and use teeny tiny font). This means that your contract will be renewed for anywhere from 12 months to three years, unless you cancel by mail within 30 days fo the end of your contract. Many of the nationwide and local alarm companies use this tactic. Cancelling early usually involves a penalty of 75% to 100% of the value of the contract.
SimpliSafe offers monthly alarm monitoring. There are no contracts to sign, so there’s no fear of getting tricked by fine print and hidden fees. You can cancel your SimpliSafe alarm monitoring anytime by simply giving us a call.
