Independence, safety and peace of mind. For seniors living at home and their loved ones, these are the most important elements of aging. Parents who wish to maintain their independence by living alone can be a double-edged sword. You’re happy they’re still self-sufficient, but you’re nervous about what can happen in an emergency.

This is where a reliable, 24-7 home security system comes in handy. You need a system that does more than just monitor for break-ins and burglaries. You need a system that monitors every kind of threat and emergency, even the ones you can’t see. You need our sponsor, SimpliSafe.

Seniors and SimpliSafe

What makes SimpliSafe so desirable among users of all ages is that no matter how tech-savvy you are, the system is easy to install and manage. In fact, setting up SimpliSafe is a DIY process and shouldn’t take more than 5 minutes to complete. No need for tools, drilling or delicate wiring. Just plug and protect.

You can even monitor your aging loved ones yourself by using your smartphone. With a quick swipe and a tap, you can arm or disarm the system and check in on their home, no matter where you are.

“I installed a SimpliSafe system in the home of an elderly relative yesterday, and I am really impressed with how well thought-out and really…idiot-proof the whole thing is! As a contractor, I’ve installed old wired systems and am, of course, comfortable with tools, but with SimpliSafe, you can leave all your tools home.

‘The only tool you need is something to cut the shipping tape on the cardboard box. Even if you haven’t seen the system before, the whole thing can be installed in minutes. Affordably priced, easy to understand, and a no-tools installation… SimpliSafe is a home run and a no-brainer!” – real SimpliSafe user.

The most innovative security system

SimpliSafe goes beyond protecting your loved ones from physical threats. It monitors potential threats that can’t be caught on camera by detecting fires and gas leaks with the industry’s best detection sensors.

It can even protect your home from potential water damage, thanks to the built-in freeze and flood sensors that alert you well in advance. SimpliSafe comes with entry and motion sensors, glass break detection and around-the-clock video surveillance.

“My mom recently lost her husband of 32 years. She is learning to establish new norms, and one of those is learning to live alone. SimpliSafe is providing her with the feeling of security and helping her feel confident that her home is secure. Now she can rest comfortably through the night, knowing SimpliSafe is watching out for her. Thanks to SimpliSafe for that!” – real SimpliSafe user.

SimpliSafe’s other key features

Aside from being easy to install, SimpliSafe is one of the most flexible and affordable security systems on the market. When you purchase a SimpliSafe system, you own it. That means you can take it with you if and when you relocate. And wherever you go, SimpliSafe is designed to fit every sized household.

No power? No problem. Whether the power goes out or the keypad is smashed, SimpliSafe offers you protection. During a power outage, the Base Station will immediately begin to draw power from its rechargeable backup battery and remain functional for up to 24 hours.

Also, unlike their main competitors, there are no contracts or hidden fees with SimpliSafe. So you pay the lowest amount without being locked into anything. This means you’re not tied to a monthly payment plan and have access to a professional monitoring service only when you need it.

If you want increased protection when you’re out of town or on vacation, you can bulk up your monitoring protection for that specific amount of time you’re away and cancel it when you return, free of hassle.
