One of the best ways to protect your home is often overlooked or viewed as non-essential. We’re talking about getting 24/7 monitoring with a home security system. It’s one of the most effective ways to protect your family and valuables inside your home, and it can even lower the cost of your home insurance premiums!

However, most people think that the installation process of a complete home security system is too complicated and it requires costly home modifications. What with all the endless wires and bulky equipment, installation can be quite the nightmare, right? One of Kim’s listeners had the same, exact question.

Lois Collins who listens to The Kim Komando Show on WIBQ asks:

Q: Hi Kim, I have always listened to and enjoyed your radio show. This has probably been covered on your show more than once, but I need advice on a security system for my home and farm buildings.

My husband of 42 years passed away January 31st so I feel a little vulnerable I guess. He had installed a system on the house a few years ago after we were burglarized in 2012, but I have no system to protect the machinery shed.

We did have cameras up but the dog (who has since disappeared) chewed up the wires and we hadn’t replaced them. Is there a good wireless camera system that would work in my situation? Thank you very much for any advice you can offer.

The answer? SimpliSafe Cameras

One of the main reasons we love SimpliSafe is because it offers 24/7 professional monitoring without annual contracts. SimpliSafe has always offered sensors, on-the-go mobile control, SMS text and email alerts, power outage protection, smoke and fire protection, and more.

But SimpliSafe’s customizable home security packages are even better with the addition of its wireless camera, the SimpliCam. These record in HD video, are always on the lookout, and use motion sensors to alert you of any intruders.

Set these up to keep an eye on key areas of your home. With the use of “Intelligent Recording,” when the system detects a break-in, the SimpliCams kick into action – recording sharp, HD quality video you can review and use as evidence later.

Whenever your system is armed or disarmed, the camera will activate. It will also activate if someone triggers your alarm, so you can catch the intruder in the act. Night vision is also included, so your home is protected even when it’s dark out.

Because some people are concerned about installing a camera in their home due to personal privacy, SimpliSafe cameras offer “Extreme Privacy Control,” which gives the user complete control over when the lens is open and closed.

Each SimpliCam is only $99 and you can view the footage from your smartphone, tablet or computer. You can also live stream the footage if you’d like. Otherwise, anything captured by the cameras will be stored for 30 days on SimpliSafe’s servers with the standard $14.99 monthly plan.

Quick and easy installation

Protecting your home should be a top priority. Order your SimpliSafe home security system today, and get a no-contract system that installs in 15 minutes without drilling. The sensors and cameras are linked wirelessly so you can put them anywhere and don’t have to run cables. 

That makes SimpliSafe perfect for apartments and rentals, along with sheds and garages. Because you can add additional sensors and cameras later, it can scale from small areas to larger homes with no problem.

SimpliSafe uses cellular to signal the monitoring service for help, so there are no phone lines for burglars to cut. Police will arrive no matter what. Plus it has a loud 85dB siren in the base station, with the option for a second 105dB siren, which will drive off most burglars.

Beyond SimpliCams, SimpliSafe offers door and window sensors and pet-friendly motion sensors for security. It also has sensors for freezing temperatures, floods, carbon monoxide and smoke, so you can protect your home against more than intruders. You also get a panic button so you can trigger the button yourself if needed.

No long-term contracts

One of the main reasons we love SimpliSafe’s home security system is because it offers all this outstanding professional home monitoring without any long-term contracts.

Yep, no commitments, no hidden fees, no activation or installation fees. For as low as $14.99 a month, which you can cancel anytime, you can have the around-the-clock home protection and that peace of mind you’ve been wanting all along.
