Safety and security. We all want to feel safe in our homes and we want our families to be protected. It seems like we are in a time where crime is on the rise and you can’t go a day without hearing some horror story about a break-in or a creepy person at your door. We travel a ton for work and although we live in a safe neighborhood, it makes me nervous when we are gone so often. Thankfully, we have a company like SimpliSafe that ensures peace of mind as we navigate protecting our homes and our families.
What makes SimpliSafe so great is that their plans are totally customizable to fit your personal home security needs. You can build a system entirely tailored to your home. Or, if you’d rather the company do the thinking for you, you can opt to purchase a pre-set bundle. Having the freedom to purchase exactly what you want– nothing more and nothing less– makes SimpliSafe stand out from other home security companies. Because of the control you have to build whatever size system you want, there is an option to fit every single budget.
With no contracts (you read that right, NO contracts) and the ability to do all of the installation yourself, there are no hidden fees or quirks in the process of making your home a SimpliSafe one. We learned our lesson in our last house when we were trapped into this long term contract that cost thousands of dollars. When the contract was up and we stopped the monitoring, we realized even then we had to still pay a yearly equipment fee. It was such a mess. That’s why when we moved we switched to SimpliSafe. Your system is professionally monitored 24/7 and sets up in minutes. It is really a seamless process from start to finish. Door sensors, window sensors, motion sensors, cameras, water sensors, temperature sensors, smoke detectors– literally everything you could possibly need to protect your home, SimpliSafe has it. Plus, they have a simple-to-use PIN Pad to control every inch of security you install. It really is an incredible system all around with amazing products that keep your home secure!
The Smart Lock is an intuitive device that is a must-have for any system you purchase through SimpliSafe and makes an incredible gift as you don’t need to have any of their other systems in place to have the Smart Lock. According to the company, the majority of break-ins happen due to a door being left unlocked. How many times have you realized you left your door unlocked after you already left home? Let’s be honest, we’ve all done it. The great thing about the Smart Lock is that as soon as you arm your SimpliSafe system the door will lock automatically. Or, you can even have it scheduled to lock at certain times so that you never forget to lock it again. Your system PIN Pad, Key Fob, and your phone can all control the lock– which is so convenient. And because we do travel alot, we have people coming by to feed the dogs, check on the house etc. We no longer have to leave a key under the mat or worry about so many people having spare keys of ours. We can give them their own special code and deactivate it once we’re home. Or if it’s a one time check-in/entry, we can open from our app (amazing for our house cleaners too!)
Another great security product that SimpliSafe carries are their cameras. Every SimpliSafe camera pairs perfectly with the overall system. The outdoor camera has HD video, night vision, and a rechargeable battery that lasts 3-6 months before it needs to be recharged! It has two-way radio functionality so you can communicate with anyone coming into view. Another key feature is that it only takes 5 minutes to install.
The indoor camera has equally great features– motion sensing and alerts to keep you informed of anything and everything going on inside your house. And, just like the outdoor camera, it has both HD viewing and night vision. SimpliCam alerts you of motion and allows you to record at the touch of a button on the app. The recordings can then be shared with law enforcement in the unlikely event that you need that functionality! But honestly this is just a great option to be able to spy on the dogs or use as a baby monitor in Addy’s playroom. We have a security system in place for worst case scenario but use it daily to check on our loved ones.
Then one of my personal favorites are the video doorbell that keeps an eye on anyone walking up to your door. We thought when we moved into this new neighborhood we didn’t really need one. After the first week of moving andn ot having it set up we realized we HAD to have it back (we had it on our old house). It took only a few minutes to set up and is great to see who is at the door and check on the million packages we get. The two-way radio function allows you to communicate with whoever is visiting without you ever having to open the door. The intuitive sensors on the camera can detect human form and human heat signatures which ensures that you won’t get false alarms from animals or any other object that enters its viewing area. And, as with all SimpliSafe products, installation is a breeze!
I think we can all agree that keeping our families and our homes safe is a top priority and SimpliSafe makes the process so easy and accessible. Being able to fully customize a system, install it in mere minutes, and have the priceless peace of mind that your home is safe and secure makes SimpliSafe truly the very best security system. Not to mention, it’s sleek, subtle, and discreet design makes it fit in perfectly with any aesthetic. Be sure to check out SimpliSafe to customize your own home security system– you will be so glad you did!
