A Company On A Mission

This sale is  SimpliSafe’s MO! Except for their Christmas sale in 2019, 20% off is pretty good, and they’ve added a free SimpliCam, their state-of-the-art indoor home camera. It’s a deal for those looking for a steal.  Yep, they are giving away one of their famous $99 SimpliCam cameras with every security system purchased during this sale. The size of the package doesn’t matter. Once in awhile, there will be a security company that will offer a discount on products, but not like this.

But there is one thing that disappoints me with SimpliCam, one thing I just can’t understand More on that below…..

Why does SimpliSafe Do This?

But first, why did SimpliSafe crank up in the first place? Why are they giving deals that are unbeatable within the DIY Home Security arena?

Who Are These Masked Men? (Masked due to Covid-19 mandates of course!)

SimpliSafe was started by a couple of Harvard Business School students in 2006 as an answer to a need. Several friends of Chad and Eleanor Laurans had experienced break-ins and were unable to find a security company that was a fit for renters. This motivated Mr. Laurans to create a solution since there was none.

Harvard UniversityAs an electrical engineer who had graduated from Yale in 2000, Mr. Laurens had a jumpstart with the necessary skillset to start developing a line of DIY (Do-it-yourself) home security products that would cater to renters. From 2006-2008 Chad and Eleanor worked on the SimpliSafe concept in their home. The products were tested out at friends’ residences as the appearance and functionality were perfected for an official launch in 2009.

There was an initial investor who believed in the company, and two more consecutive funding companies who saw the quick growth and potential of SimpliSafe. The most recent investor took a controlling interest in the company and they have continued to grow. Grow? They’ve done that! That leads me to the one issue I have with SimpliSafe, but first, one last thing. Then onto my disappointment.

Why Offer Such Deals?

SimpliSafe was determined to make a difference in the world of home security. This venture wasn’t to be a quick fix, and the founders were not wanting to provide products that would take extreme sales tactics for them to remain in business. Their goal was to change the industry by creating and developing products that were in step with the times.

There are other home security companies that brag that they have been around since the 1800s. Well, some of them seem like they are still operating with that day’s technology in mind. Okay, being fair, they may have kept up for a while as the world changed, but they got locked into a mindset a few decades ago that wasn’t anticipating the needs and wants of a generation of homeowners who are all holding mobile phones and laptops.

So, being one of the pioneers of this new, DIY home security concept, SimpliSafe has been determined to continue to reinvest back into a new customer base as they prove themselves to be the innovators that they are. They want to win loyalty through honesty, great products and services, and reasonable prices. As they do so, they will be offering more and more products, filling the needs of customers as they become aware of them. Now I will share with you how they are letting me down……

Where Are the Cameras?

The one thing that disappoints me about SimpliSafe is its limited camera options. In fact, they only offer the SimpliCam for indoors, and the Video Doorbell Pro for outdoors. Video doorbells are not the same as other outdoor cameras. It’s impractical to put a doorbell camera in most places where one would want them. They are designed for that one spot, right by your door. Check out our reviews on home security cameras.

And don’t get me wrong, both of these cameras are exceptional and receive rave reviews for quality, durability, appearance, and great price. all of their products are great! But SimpliSafe would do well to add a couple of outdoor cameras and at least one more indoor option. Perhaps wired and battery operated. A floodlight camera for outdoors would be awesome too! This link will take you to one of our reviews on some outdoor security lights and smart lights.

The good news, if I’m understanding it right, is that they will be rolling out more camera options soon. I hope this is correct because most people want to have all of their components working together from the same manufacturer. It’s also good news to know that any cameras SimpliSafe puts out will be quality products just like everything else they’ve ever offered.

So, How Do I  Get 20% off and a free SimpliCam?

Using this link, go to SimpliSafe. You will automatically receive the discount. The discount is for anything you buy with the package. For instance, even if you get their least expensive package, you get the discount and free SimpliCam. If you decide to add a Video Doorbell Pro or Smart Lock, the discount is applied to those products as well.

SimpliSafe Foundation Package

<===== This package is called The Foundation. It’s the basic starter package and is insanely affordable! It doesn’t cost much more than the free SimpliCam if it were to be purchased. But you get the SimpliCam security camera for free and 35% off of your entire order, EVEN WITH THIS FOUNDATION PACKAGE! I don’t know how they do it.


Before You Go Shop At SimpliSafe……

To clear up any confusion based on a number of questions I’ve received, although the Video Doorbell Pro isn’t part of the pre-set packages, it is eligible for the 20% discount. You would just need to add it to whichever package you choose. The same goes for the Smart Lock.

  1. Thanks for the article.  You’re absolutely right that they need to add more camera options. I don’t have a doorbell.  Don’t know why but the apartment building was built without them.  I’d much rather have a camera above the door somewhere than where the doorbell is, even if I had one.  Though it’s crazy to see they’re taking so much off during this sale.  Nuts.  Still worth checking out, even if I’m not fired up about the camera options.  Thanks for the article.

    1. Absolutely! And thanks for the comments. SimpliSafe is great in every other way, and as soon as they come out with two or three other camera options, they will likely become twice as big as the next leading DIY home security company. 

      Thanks again!


  2. Hello there, and thanks for sharing this awesome article that I know would be of great help to the public as it has been of help to me. I must say SimpliSafe is one of the best brands out there. I have used several of their products and I must say they are really solid! In the field of DIY home security, they are the rising star. Thanks for the article and information!

  3. Hello there! This is an honest and amazing review, not t mention very informative. I am very sure this review will help others who come across it as it’s helping me at the moment to consider the options in protecting where I live. It would probably be a good idea for me to get a package from SimpliSafe before the end of the July sale. The prices are all so affordable right now! Thanks for sharing about this sale and the private access to the 35% off with a free SimpliCam.

    1. Hi Joy! I’m so glad to be able to help. Please come back and let us know which package you purchased and how what your thoughts are on it once it is installed. 🙂

  4. I have been interested in Simplisafe for a long time.  I got caught up in the nightmare of another security company that had me on a two year uber expensive contract. Just when I was ready to celebrate the end of two years, I discovered the company had “rolled” over into another two year contract because I did not cancel the renewal in time. Many hours of fighting later, I just stopped paying and ruined my credit. Never again – so Simplisafe seems like such a good option. My big question is this – I live in the country and only have Verizon wireless hotspot for Internet. Will Simplisafe work on this system or do I need to be hardwired?

    I know – it is hard to believe people still don’t have access to the Internet – but there are a lot of people in my boat out in the country and they would probably like to know this answer, too. Thanks for the information!

    1. Hi Janice! Since Verizon Wireless Hotspot acts as your WiFi, you should be good. As long as your Verizon Hotspot is acting as your WiFi there at your home, the SimpliSafe Components would operate through that service. 

      Thanks for your comments and questions. Drop in at any time with any other questions or relative information. 

  5. Thanks for this awesome article, I have not heard of SimpliSafe, though i have heard of many security companies. 35% off is a nice deal! Especially after looking into the validity of this company before sending this comment. This is great! It is great that they are doing this because the global pandemic has affected almost everything and people are too distracted right now to think about this necessity, but reducing the price is really a  good move to get people thinking, but I do think that they should add more options. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Thank you so much for this highly informative article! As someone who currently uses a combination of SimpliSafe and ADT products, I completely agree that SimpliSafe’s cameras are fantastic, though they need multiple options for both indoors and outdoors. I live in a 2 story home in Chicago, and safety is always one of my top priorities. I’d like to have at least two cameras on every floor of my home, as well a camera on all four sides of the outside of my home-I want to know what’s going on from all angles. I appreciate the fact that SimpliSafe is dedicated to adding more cameras to its’ inventory, and I look forward to trying them out! Great read! God bless you!

    1. Thanks so much for your comments! I’m glad you are enjoying your security products. It’s good to hear from those who are actually already using these security systems. Feel free tyo drop in anytime with updated input on any of the products you are using.

      Thanks again and God bless you too! 🙂
