For smaller homes, you can opt for SimpliSafe’s Starter package, which ships with a base station, one wireless keypad, one motion sensor, one entry sensor, and a keychain remote, essentially everything you’ll need to start with. For bigger homes that require protection for more than one door and a window, you could move up to their Economy, Master, or Ultimate package that throw in additional sensors.
For additional protection, you can also customize any package by adding Simplicams to keep an eye on key areas of your home. These cameras are only $99, and record live, HD video you can view from your smartphone, tablet or computer. Simplicams use motion sensing technology to activate whenever something unusual is detected. But you can also record at any time with the push of a button.
These are all of the many ways SimpliSafe can protect your home against burglars. But did you know that a SimpliSafe system can also protect it from elemental hazards as well?
You read that right, SimpliSafe has a variety of other wireless sensors, not just motion, but glass breakage, intrusion and elemental detectors, that you could integrate with your home security system.
Start off with a Smoke Detector. SimpliSafe’s smoke detectors are equipped with photoelectric sensors that react quicker to a fire in its early smoldering stages before it bursts into flames, giving you more time to escape. Photoelectric sensors also mean they’re less prone to false fire alarms and they’re equipped with their own internal siren to make sure you’re aware of any impending fires in your home. Additionally, with an alarm monitoring plan, a call is made to you and the fire department for immediate response.
Next up is a Carbon Monoxide Sensor. SimpliSafe’s CO detectors are equipped with electrochemical sensing technology that should detect the presence of dangerous levels of carbon monoxide. As you all know, carbon monoxide is an invisible but deadly gas and early detection is vital. As with SimpliSafe’s smoke detectors, the CO Sensor is equipped with its own siren and with the alarm monitoring plan, it will alert the appropriate emergency responders if triggered.
For extreme cold, SimpliSafe has a Wireless Freeze Sensor. This sensor will trigger an alarm if the temperature in your home falls below 41 degrees. Aside from protecting your home from costly burst pipes, freeze detection will protect other cold sensitive valuables like paintings, musical instruments and plants. Aside from the phone call and text alerts if your home’s temperature drops to dangerously low levels, you will also have remote access to your home’s hourly temperature readings.
For flooding and other water damage alerts, get SimpliSafe’s Wireless Water Sensor. Set it up near plumbing areas or in the attic to monitor for leaks. Prevent mold, damaged floors, carpets and furniture by getting early notifications for potential water damage. This water sensor will trigger an alarm, and with an alarm monitoring plan, will send a phone call and a text/email alert when it comes in contact with water.
For a complete package, which includes a smoke detector, a water sensor, a freeze sensor, and a CO sensor aside from the variety of motion and entry sensors, get SimpliSafe’s Ultimate Package. Better yet, you can also build your own customized package to mix and match sensors that you may want.
This is why we choose SimpliSafe over other home security services. With SimpliSafe, you can get customized coverage for your home without being tied to a long-term contract. For just $15 a month, you can have peace of mind and know that your home is being monitored around the clock. Click here to check out SimpliSafe’s variety of sensors.
