SimpliSafe is having a Private Sale. AGAIN! It ends next Tuesday….
Ends September 1st, 2020!
20% OFF of your entire order AND a FREE SimpliCam (the coveted camera these days)
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…..
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.
As 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.
<===== 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.
