I have multiple security setups here,probably too many but this system is a one stop shop for your needs which can be built upon with more products as you go, In fairness many systems are the same but any I have tried all missed one important thing which is exit/entry point sensors alongside the camera. Also this has probably the best base station I have used as it is full of life with audio cues and it even lights up and the system as a whole is so easy to set up and requires NO DRILLING as they are all set with adhesive pads which is great and does not require an expensive installation bill from a professional.

Disclaimer… The monitoring service does not work here in Ireland yet not will it in the near future as we got in touch with them upon setup and they responded which also put their support team to the test and they were quick to help out . So my review is based on the system itself and how it worked without the service plan.

Setting up is simple but I would plan out out where you are going to place the equipment then it will take you no longer than ten minutes to have it up and running it is that easy,OK it might be easier for me as I am custom to setting up the likes on a regular basis but it really simple.

The package we tested can be seen below.

The control panel is easy to use yet a bit on the big side but it can be either fixed to the wall with its included bracket,again adhesive backed and the controller can be taken anywhere in the house for your convenience. I would go through the settings first before moving on you can see this in the video below.

Set up your camera next which again is an easy process like most these days,the app is quite good here and helpful too should you get lost on the way,then I would add my entry/exit sensors to the system, again seen in video then add your motion sensor and you are good to go,once all this is set up you can name the points on the system and check they are all operational via the control panel or by simply doing a system test once all this is done you are good to go.

You can add other products to this if you like and this one was almost complete for me as one camera is not enough i would rather one system complete than several running at once which is what I have now and its taxing to say the least but my house is secure but the simplicity behind this product is what sells it for me especially with the installation process. Check out the video below for more and you should check it out too but keep in mind you need to check the availability of monitoring asides that I think this is a great product.

Ready-made kits range from The Starter – designed for small homes and flats at £279 – to the larger Windsor and Bamburgh kits (£454 – £504).

  1. Hey guys – love the site. Love the reviews. Just a quick thing about The simplisafe system, just to clarify; you still can use the App and get notifications to your phone or device if the Sensors were activated etc? So it’s still a very functional Alarm system for ROI with no added monthly cost at the moment?
