Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Alexa and Google support
Affordable hardware with reasonable monthly monitoring fees
Great customizability
It offers a number of different starter packs, but we recommend starting with the eight-piece kit, which comes with an attractive hub, four door and window sensors, a motion sensor, a keypad and a panic button.

What reviewers didn't like

No smart alerts with self-monitoring
Underwhelming indoor camera
Limited smart home integrations
SimpliSafe doesn't integrate with many third-party products from other brands — only Alexa and Google Home for voice control, and August smart locks — so you’re mostly locked into SimpliSafe's own products.
