Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for SimpliSafe Wireless Home Security System. The BoolPool rating for this product is Good, with 3.50 stars, and the price range is $175.00-$268.00.

The SimpliSafe Wireless Home Security system comes in eight pieces, including a home base, keypad, entry sensor, motion sensors, and more for a completely “do it yourself” security system at home, rather than paying hundreds or thousands more for other products or installation fees. 24/7 customer service also allows customers any assistance, from installation to product troubleshooting, at a simple phone call to get the issue resolved promptly. Each of the security devices is white, small, and are not obvious to the eye, making it a good way of protecting a home. Customers can opt to connect their home phone with the product to automatically call police when the alarm is triggered, or it can be connected via cellular data to call for help.

Customers say the motion sensors do not always work the way they should, and even can falsely trigger authorities when unnecessary. Others say they struggled to secure their homes properly with the 8-piece set and needed additional motion devices to ensure full protection. Finally, batteries within each of the sensors and devices die frequently since they run around-the-clock, and can get costly.

Overall, this product seems to do the trick for those looking for a cheap and effective way to secure a smaller home, but may not work well for larger properties.

We mainly got this because it's connected to our local police and can arm/disarm via phone.

Unlike the wired big alarm company alarm systems, Simplisafe sensors are "one size fits all" but what's good for a door isn't good enough for windows.

Now that I've had my system up and running for several weeks, including contacting customer service three times and the monitoring company once plus expanding my system from five to 17 sensors, I'm totally satisfied with my overall experience.
