While most SimpliSafe equipment works as part of the security system, its two camera products work independently.
The SimpliCam and SimpliSafe Video Doorbell Pro are a great jumping-off point if you want to try SimpliSafe gear but don’t want to commit to a full-blown security system.
Depending on the amount of sensors you purchase, installation shouldn’t take you more than 30 minutes. The keypad walks you through installation with onscreen instructions.
And the sensors use adhesive backing to stay in place. Just peel and stick to install the wireless keypad and the door, window, and motion sensors.
But, if you’re uneasy about installing your system yourself, SimpliSafe offers optional professional installation for an extra $79.
For anyone with four-legged pals running around the house it’s important to get a pet-friendly home security system. SimpliSafe sensors have built-in technology that helps them ignore movement from pets over 50 pounds.
SimpliSafe motion sensors use unique heat signatures to tell the difference between humans and pets to make sure the alerts you get are worth your attention and cut down on false alarms.
A recent development from SimpliSafe, Heartbeats are signals between all your system’s sensors and the base station. This constant communication alerts you when batteries are low, something’s been tampered with, or a sensor is out of range.
Best of all, if you've already got a SimpliSafe security system, Heartbeats is already included (as long as you keep everything updated).
