SimpliSafe is a basic but effective home alarm system that’s virtually risk-free thanks to its flexible no-contract plans, generous return policy and three-year warranty. We also like that you can purchase equipment à la carte directly from the website—no need for a sales quote.
There’s room for improvement in terms of smart home integration and camera quality, but SimpliSafe gets the job done for both renters and homeowners seeking their first alarm system.
We’re no strangers to SimpliSafe since we’ve conducted hands-on reviews of their equipment and even installed a full system ourselves. Over the past eight years, we’ve talked to dozens of SimpliSafe representatives and read hundreds of reviews from SimpliSafe users.
To review the SimpliSafe UK branch, we went straight to SimpliSafe.co.uk and started investigating the differences in equipment, prices, monthly plans and monitoring services. When we had questions, we reached out to SimpliSafe via the website’s chat function. We looked for reviews on SimpliSafe’s user forums and on Trustpilot.
We used our knowledge of the industry to evaluate our findings. You can read more about how we review products and services on our methodology page.
