All About Safety: The DIY SimpliSafe Home Security System Review

Imagine not being tied to strict and binding contracts. You can buy just what’s right for the size of your home. You can even monitor your system by yourself or have it done by professionals. Whatever you want, SimpliSafe gives you the freedom to decide on your security.

However, despite not being able to give you home automation or camera surveillance, SimpliSafe is more than enough to make sure your home is safe. What’s even better is that they simply need you to hand in upfront payments and you can then take your devices with you, wherever and whenever you transfer.

5 Piece Starter Package

If you have a small home, the Starter Package is your perfect fit. It doesn’t have complex equipments to confuse you or the excess sensors you wouldn’t know where else to install. It simply offers you the basic devices appropriate for the size of your home.

Package includes:

  • 1 Base Station
  • 1 Wireless Keypad
  • 1 Motion Sensor
  • 1 Entry Sensor
  • 1 Free Keychain Remote

Price: $229.96

  • Base Station
    •  Simplisafe has voice prompts to guide you in installation.
    • You need to connect the Base to a power source for it to initialize. However, it does come with batteries, too. The backup power source can provide you 2 days of power in case there’s a problem with electricity.
    • Interestingly, the batteries automatically recharge once power resumes.
    • The Base works by cellular technology. If you’re wondering what happens when there’s signal failure, the Base can also be linked to a broadband connection.
    • Measuring at 11 inches, you can expect the Base to accommodate up to 41 sensors.
    • There is also a built in siren that can ward off intruders. How loud? It alarms at 85 decibels.
  • Wireless Keypad
    • The Wireless Keypad works to distract intruders.

If a burglar finds his way inside your home, Simplisafe detects the breach. In response,your wireless keypad will start to beep. Instinctively, the burglar turns his attention to it. Thinking that the keypad is actively sending signals to the monitoring station, he now tries to destroy it. However, while he’s busy jamming the keypad, the Base silently sends the signal to the station.  After successful transmission, the full system alarm now engages.  Excellent decoy, don’t you think?

  • Motion Sensor
    • Each motion sensor has a 90 degree field of coverage. You can best place it in corners so it can “see” better when someone goes in and out of your home.
    • It can detect motions from up to 30 feet.
    • It can ignore your pet. If your dog weighs less than 50 lbs, you won’t have to worry about pet-triggered alarms. The sensor has less sensitivity for animals that light.
  • Entry Sensors
    • Entry sensors have magnets to make it work.
    • It should be able to fit on most door and window frames. However, you have to make sure the magnet and the sensor have a gap of 2 inches or less.
  • Keychain remote
    • The keychain remote comes for free and you can use it to manually arm or disarm your security system.
    • It also has a panic button which you can readily press when you really need to.
    • The remote has a built in USB drive. You can connect it to your computer to customize and manage your security.

However, if you want someone knowledgeable and skillful to look after your home 24/7, you can pair your system with their professional monitoring services.
