4 years in the past, SimpliSafe’s DIY house safety equipment received Editors’ Selection right here on Proinertech. I appreciated that it was one of the vital inexpensive house safety choices to characteristic 24/7 reside monitoring, I appreciated how simple it was to put in and function, and I beloved how customizable the system was, with refined layers of safety for quite a lot of emergency conditions.
The issue was SimpliSafe’s — the dated-looking units had been ugly as hell. That is a big shortcoming for a system you are supposed to stay up throughout your house.
That is why I used to be significantly excited to check out SimpliSafe’s new, third-gen system, which made its debut only a few months in the past at CES 2018. Other than a few new additions to the setup since final time round, the pitch is identical — monitored safety that you simply set up your self and management out of your smartphone. The distinction now’s that the seems to be loads higher — and, with packages beginning at $229, it would not price any greater than earlier than, both.
