There’s Something Terribly Wrong
with the Home Security Industry

SimpliSafe is on a Mission to fix it

For 100 years the alarm security industry has scared customers into signing nasty long-term contracts.

There’s something terribly wrong with the home security industry

Unlike SimpliSafe, most burglar alarms are far too expensive. Here’s why...

With so many people making a profit, they need to use sneaky tactics to extract money from you. For example,
  • though they bait you with a “$99” offer, there’s typically $1,500 of hidden fees beneath the hood
  • they lock you into 2–3 year contracts that contain fine print such as auto-renewal clauses. (Click here to discover what an auto-renewal clause is, and why they’re so nasty the Government is considering making them illegal.)
  • their alarms use old wired technology and they’re hard to use (so you need to pay a service engineer for even the most straightforward task).

SimpliSafe: a better way

At SimpliSafe, we deal directly with our customers

…so you get all these advantages:
  • No Contracts
    1) No contracts. (Other companies require a minimum of three years’ commitment.)
  • Cheaper Monitoring
    2) Monitoring is less than half price ($14.99 instead of $40.00 for the same level of service).
  • Wireless Technology
    3) It’s wireless technology so there are no holes in your walls.
  • No installation fees
    4) No installation fees
  • Cellular Technology
    5) Cellular technology, so you don’t need to have a phone line. (Plus, burglars can cut phone lines.)

simplisafe vs adt security review in fortune

Fortune Magazine describes how we're revolutionizing the expensive alarm installation industry with our wireless security systems and contract-free alarm monitoring services.

See the figures for yourself
  SimpliSafe has no commitments Others have huge commitments
Commitment None 36 months at $42.99/month
Total lock-in $0 $1,547
$1,547 is quite a lot for an alarm that they claim to be free, isn't it?

The New York Times described SimpliSafe alarms as

"All the bells and whistles for a lot less money"

Nationwide 24/7 Alarm Monitoring

SimpliSafe alarm systems are equipped to communicate with our alarm monitoring centers via a GSM cellular link.
No Phoneline needed. No internet needed.

SimpliSafe alarms have no hidden charges. Many alarm companies have absolutely huge sneaky hidden charges. They advertise their alarms as being "from $99"—then they get you to sign a contract for over a thousand dollars—and you can't leave them for at least three years.

We're so confident you'll love your SimpliSafe alarm, we'll let you try it RISK-FREE, with an incredible no-risk 60-day money back guarantee.

SimpliSafe are fantastic reliable alarms that are easy to use, with no contracts and no hidden costs.

9 things to avoid when choosing an alarm

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.
$42.99 per month. why pay this when you could have the same level of service for this price? Just $14.99 per month. Note that 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. No contracts! Our customers stay with us because of our excellent product quality and helpful customer support.
Auto-renewal clauses that grab another $1,547 from you, if you don't cancel within 90 days of the end of your three-year term. If you forget to cancel, you're legally trapped—there's no way out. No hidden charges, no commitment, and 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. If a sensor is removed or tampered with, the Base Station will notice that it's not responding and alert the monitoring center.

In fact, here's a clever feature: recently, a burglar tried to disarm a SimpliSafe alarm by smashing the keypad with a baseball bat. The police were alerted immediately, via the Base Station, which stayed silent while it contacted the monitoring center. The burglar was apprehended a few minutes later.
As soon as you sign up, there's no going back: you cannot cancel even if you try. We put our money where our mouth is: you can try us completely risk free, with three amazing guarantees.
Guarantee 1: Satisfaction. Guaranteed.
See details. We at SimpliSafe are committed to providing you with only the best products and services. Our goal is to make your life an easier and safer one.

Guarantee 2: Our 60-Day Complete Satisfaction Money Back Guarantee.

Guarantee 3: Your Three-Year Product Warranty
See details. Even after 60 days have passed, you still benefit from our three-year product warranty.

We can afford to offer this because our components are so reliable.

SimpliSafe is not for you if...

  1. 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 one of the traditional contract security companies—and keep in mind the things we’ve warned you about.
  2. If 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, and 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. Our alarms are currently protecting many lawyers, doctors, small business owners and retailers.

7 ways to stop burglars from choosing your home.”

Heavy rains last night and my basement started taking on some water. My sump pump was unplugged. The Water sensor down there worked perfectly and alerted us to the problem. This is a great system, we've had it hooked up for months now and never had any problems. Thanks!
i love this system
Very economical Security System with $14.95 a month monitoring and no contract!
This is a GREAT SYSTEM and very affordable. Works perfectly and we are very HAPPY with it. The BEST & LOWEST monitoring rates around...
Installed the entire package yesterday and it took about 30 minutes. I used screws to secure the glass breakage monitors and motion sensors. I love the way my Iphone can activate and deactivate the system. I also love the flood sensor in our basement. Thi system truly gives a great piece of mind. Way to go, SimpliSafe.

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 12 months (although it can be as high as three years), unless you cancel by mail within 30 days of the end of your contract. Many of the nation-wide and local alarm companies use this tactic. Cancelling early usually involves a penalty of 75% to 100% of the value of the contract.

we have no auto-renewal clause!

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.
