How many people visit your home on a daily basis? Between your spouse, your kids, your parents, the in-laws, the babysitter, housekeeper, pool guy and more, there's always someone coming and going.

You've taken the right step by protecting your home with a SimpliSafe home security system. But one thing you certainly don't want to do is hand out your security code to everyone.

The security code, or PIN number, works similarly to the PIN on your debit card. It's how you turn off your alarm system, which makes it really difficult for the rest of the family if you keep it to yourself.

Another downside to sharing your PIN with everyone is that you can't really tell who deactivated the alarm, and when. And, if someone did happen to steal your code, it would be nearly impossible to pinpoint who'd leaked or lost the information.

What's the solution?

With a SimpliSafe home security system, you don't have to worry about that problem. You can avoid this issue altogether by assigning every member of your family their own security PIN.

SimpliSafe Home Security allows up to five individual PINs, which strengthens the security of your entire system. Letting each member of your family choose their own security code makes it more likely they'll have a PIN they'll find easy to remember. This means they won't have to write the code down, running the possibility of the passcode being lost or stolen.
