To begin with it is totally wireless, even a Moron can install the system. They use 3m Command to mount the Sensors and etc. to the surface, they can be removed and taken to a different house or location. Everything operates from batteries and the sensors are long life 123, the base unit AA. When I have had an alarm (always false) the monitoring co calls immediately. Their Customer Service is always very responsive to any question. San Jose California will not send police out unless someone can verify that a burglary is in progress and see the person, then they will not go into the back yard. SimpliSafe has a company that will come out if you pay extra for that service but I was told... Read More

Have had the system for 1.5 years. I have found it to work well and purchased another system for a vacation home. Had an incident where potential thieves broke into a storage shed, and the system monitoring company contacted me immediately, the sheriff was contacted, and stopped the would be thieves before they could steal a $4000 ATV.

Had three years and have had no issues. Someone keeps calling to say they will update my equipment and no charge. They have all my information and said they are calling from the manufacture. I called SimpliSafe and they are not aware of the offer.

DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY. This is a TERRIBLE system and customer service is worthless. The sensors only work within 15 feet of the control panel and, according to customer service, the control panel cannot be located in your kitchen because there is too much metal and electronics in that area. The entry keypad cannot be mounted anywhere near wiring like the light switches near your doors. Simpli a total failure for a home security system.

I was OK with the system UNTIL...I questioned them about the emergency numbers they would call in the event of an alarm...(which they had NEVER asked about in 3 weeks)...they didnt even have the correct area code.....thats the ONLY reason I returned the system.....

Great system. Easy to install and test. Adding extra components is easy as wConvenience ell which allows a customized installation. A bit pricey but the conveinience in ease of set up makes it worth it. Extremely sensitive components with excellent wireless coverage.
