SimpliSafe Is Home Security for Minimalists

Home security used to mean clunky keypads, conspicuous cameras, and hardwired sensors throughout your house. Those sensors may make your home safer, but they are also constant reminders of how unattractive your security system is. And if you need to adjust or replace the units, you’ll incur wall damage.

With SimpliSafe, you get the safety and security of a traditional provider with none of the aesthetic downsides. SimpliSafe’s suite of good-looking, easy-to-install sensors don’t require any drilling or wiring. SimpliSafe collaborated with global design firm IDEO on their new sensors, which are half the size of the previous generation’s models and have double the range. The tapered backs allow the sensors to disappear into corners. You won’t notice them until you need to.

All SimpliSafe systems come with a base station (shown). The sensors and keypad communicate with the base station. If someone tries to break in, your base station alerts SimpliSafe’s monitoring center, then sounds a loud siren.

The Glassbreak Sensor (shown) is ideal for rooms with multiple windows and sliding doors, and it knows the difference between a smashed window and a smashed plate.
