SimpliSafe Home Security
Our appliances team tested a lot of do-it-yourself home security kits. But none was quite so easy to install or comprehensive as this one.
- Overall score: 8.7 (4.0 stars)
CNET Editors' Rating
The good: For such a multifunctional system, SimpliSafe is incredibly easy to set up and use. Their contract-free packages are highly customizable and thoughtfully designed for better, smarter home security.
The bad: SimpliSafe packages don't include video cameras, and you won't be able to connect with locks, lights, or other home automation devices over Z-Wave, Zigbee, or any other wireless network. The devices also look a little dated.
The bottom line: Home security options are evolving rapidly, but SimpliSafe is one of our current favorites. If you want a comprehensive, easy-to-use system that features live monitoring, you'll have a hard time finding a better option at a better price.
