Leigh Karchner New Port Richey, FL

We've had our system for just under 3 weeks and since then, this company announced it was distancing itself from the NRA and would be discontinuing all discounts to NRA supporters. That in itself is discrimination but not they are not answering questions or concerns we have about this system or their unfair business practices. I've sent several emails and posted to their Facebook page without response. Here is the latest: "Your lack of response to customer's questions about distancing yourself from the NRA and discontinuing the discounts is certainly discrimination against NRA supporters. It's disgusting. Guns don't kill people........... people kill people and you are penalizing and punishing a huge sector of your clientele (and future clientele) that hasn't done anything wrong. Do you think these crazies that committed these horrible acts are NRA supporters? I very seriously doubt it. If that's the case then all the murders committed on a daily basis in Chicago, Baltimore, L.A., and other crime-laden cities run by liberals is also the NRA's fault? Perhaps THAT is blamed on NRA supporters too? That's insanity. Criminals don't support gun laws, don't buy guns legally, and could give two hoots about any of us that support the 2nd Amendment or the NRA. SimpliSafe should be working with the NRA to help protect Americans from crime rather than against it. As usual with liberals, your logic is twisted and totally anti-American." Businesses like this one should never put themselves into the middle of a political issue and/or public debate, particularly if they are unwilling or unable to justify their actions. In this case, I no longer feel I can trust the safety and security of my home and family to a company that does not back my Constitutional rights under the 2nd Amendment. I have requested an RMA and prepaid shipping label to return our system under their 60 day returns policy and all I receive from them are canned email responses that do not answer or address my questions or concerns. I cannot in good conscience recommend this company for that reason alone, politics aside.

I had no problems with the system after they switched out the module in the main station. I quit SimplySafe because of their position regarding the NRA. I don't agree with everything the NRA says, but for Simply Safe to dump them was strictly a political decision because they were afraid they would lose customers....guess what?>. They did....but for the opposite reason! How can a company that's concerned about home security take a position like that? Sorry, but that's my position!

very quick response by monitoring service when alarm goes off, even when prior notice of battery change is planned and action is called in to the monitoring service. sliding windows can be one drawback for the system and half of the window needs to secured some other way.

We have had this system for several years and are completely satisfied. We have only had one false alarm, from one motion sensor, cause unknown. The system is easy to install, the service from the alarm company is excellent. We have accidentally set off the alarm twice and the alarm company's response was immediate.

Simple and easy to install. Received a water alarm the 2nd day we had the system activated and discovered that our water heater had sprung a small leak! Saved the day - suggest adding moisture/water sensor to your order!

Easy to install. Low monthly fees. Get an extra touch panel because the key fobs don't show you if the alarm system is set. We keep one in the console of the vehicle. Sometimes the key fob did not set or turn off the alarm. With the extra panel you KNOW!

The best company after being with adt this is by far a better co. They call before the police arrive so you don't get charged by the police for false alarm. Adt does not do this .

Simplisafe offers a home security experience most companies cannot deliver. With live footage sent to the police it increases the chances of the police taking the alarm seriously and decreases the amount of time it will take them to respond. I always feel safe and secure and know my money is going to good use. A price can it be put on safety.

The SimpliSafe system is a fraud the reason for that is because agents and TL will stay one thing and then when customers call in and speak with a different agent they are told information that is not correct or calls will hang up . Not all the agents are bad but they do not do there job right at all . I had spoken to an agent that no longer works there due to her call avoiding and i think all the agents there call avoid not to work

I have simplisafe installed in my business in, Magna Utah for the last two years. It is Utah Crystal Sanctuary, we have hundreds of quartz crystals from a few ounces to 50+ pounds, gemstones and gifts. March 18, 2020 7:09 am, we had a 5.7 Earth Quake, it destroyed the inside of my building and almost everything in it. No one was there at the time, alarm had been set the night before. We had to disarm when we got there. Most every thing had crashed to the floor. The damage was bad. Here's the weird part, the alarm had NOT been tripped. If an Earth Quake and all the damage did not set the alarm off, what defense do I have from a burglar. I don't feel secure at all.

Worst system and customer service experience. On 2/20/2020 we received a phone call from Simplisafe and complete silence on their end. After 30 secs or so a lady representative said "Hello" and immediately hung up on me. Before I could return a call Simplisafe called back. Again I received no answer for a good 20 secs or so, finally a lady said "hello" and put me on hold. While on hold I received another call from Simplisafe. I picked up the phone call and received no response. All in total I received 11 phone calls within 28mins with no response on their end and 11, 3 min voicemails. After calling back and finally speaking with a floor manage they had no answer for the calls I was receiving. I informed the floor manager I would like to cancel my service in which he did right away. Simplisafe has displayed they could care less about your worries of a home burglary or concerns with they systems. The floor supervisor Robert best explanation is to go to simplisafe.com and submit an email of my concern. Please avoid simplisafe and pay a little more to have peace of mind for your home and family.

I think SimpliSafe is a scam. We tried it for about 6 months and had trouble with it from day 2. The simple camera on the door bell never worked correctly and when called they continued to tell me to remove the door bell button and reset it. After a couple of months, and the Extreme trying of my patience, I asked when I was on a trip was I suppose to return home and reset the door bell. The cameras would not monitor correctly . What an absolute mess of a system. My last call to the company was to cancel my contract and the receptionist told me he felt he would not be able to talk be out of staying on line. He went on to say the guarantee had expired so the equipment I had paid for was mine and there would be no guarantee. I advised I had problems since I had the system at which time he disclosed "Sorry but that doesn't matter. We invested hundreds of dollars for absolutely nothing and to be insulted. I had listened to Sean Hannity's commercials on how great this product... well no more listening to his commercials. Another thing to note I was advised that the insurance on my home would be less. When we checked into it we would save a whopping $10.00 a year WOW!! SimiliSafe is a scam. I learned later that the signal they use can be jammed with a $27.00 electronic push button sold on Amazon. If I could I would rate this company well below a 1.

Simplisafe monitoring will not send the police unless they have a visual confirmation with a camera. We had a previous attempted break in so we installed simplisafe thinking it would notify police as it says it will on their site. Just got a call today from Securitas who simplisafe has partnered with to inform us there is an intruder alert. He said there was motion detected in my bedroom from a motion detector. No one was home and we had a previous attempted break-in so I asked him to notify the police. He refused saying he could not see an intruder in the cameras. That is idiotic on so many levels. 1. Why bother calling me if he wasn't prepared to take action? 2. All cameras are downstairs. The alert came from my upstairs bedroom where there is no camera, only a motion detector. He said if he couldn't see an intruder in the downstairs cameras so he didn't see the need to call the police. I tried to explain that the intruders may never come downstairs in front of the cameras- but he wouldn't budge. 3. He said he was connecting me to a supervisor - but you know what he really did - no one picked up the phone. 3. So simplisafe requires its customers to have a camera in every room otherwise the police will not be notified without a visual confirmation? So what's the point of all the other detectors - entry and motion and glass break? Stupid policy. I recorded the frustrating call I had with the monitoring guy on my phone and am looking for where I should upload it. Please suggest. Simplisafe is a garbage company for not letting its customers know before hand that it will not notify police without a visual confirmation with a simplicam. How can these guys save us from crooks if they're crooks themselves? Please share this so others are informed of the truth. Thanks and namaste

As with many other customer complaints, customer service stinks. The recording says the usual "we are experiencing heavier than normal call volume," blah, blah, blah. However, I was hung up on twice after waiting for a total of 26 minutes. Typical. I am sure if I pushed 1 for new customer, a rep would have answered within a minute or two. But once they have you, forget about customer service.

Do not, DO NOT buy any products from Simplisafe. I have never had a worse customer service experience than I have had with them. I purchased a system from their website on 11/23/19 and the next day I was gifted a different system. So the day it arrived (12/6) I began the process of trying to return it (they claim to have a 60 day return policy). It took four attempts to contact them to get them to even acknowledge me. After receiving my return label I returned the system on 12/16/19 (tracking shows it was delivered). Since then I have not received a refund and I’ve made 6 separate attempts to get an update on the return. I finally received an email saying they had received the package and were in the process of processing the return. The next day I got a different email from a different representative saying my package was still on route to them and once they received it I would be refunded. It has been OVER A MONTH since I returned the package and still no refund and they are ignoring me. Protect. Yourself. From. These. Scam. Artists.

Horrible customer service. Tried to cancel on several occasions,( first time was Dec 16, 2019 ) its usually an hour wait or more. Have only gotten through 2 times , the first time I talked to someone , they took all my information and after telling them I wanted to cancel, they hung up on me. The second time I got through ( 72 min on hold ) the line just went dead when someone answered. They know why you are calling because you have to press the # 3 to put you through to cancel . The other 6 times I called them I hung up after waiting over 45 min. I dont have that kind of time to sit and wait on the phone. Stil trying to cancel as of today, Jan 13, 2020 .. Also emailed them and they told me to call them , really ?

Has to be one of the worst products I have ever purchased. It arrived already missing the panic buttons(back ordered). They never informed me of when I might expect those. Unpacked and attempted to install, 4 of the 6 window/door sensors had low battery warnings. One of two motion detectors didn't work at all. Siren is totally dead, most likely dead batteries also. Now comes the fun part, I attempted to call SimpliSafe. 2 hours on hold. Finally spoke to someone who's education level must have been non-existent. I frankly couldn't understand what she was saying. They offered to send me 2 sensors. Really? How does that help that 4 don't work, motion detector doesn't work and neither does the siren. Not to mention the panic buttons I never received. After demanding over and over that I want to send the system back they finally agreed. They say they are mailing it to me, really? They don't have the ability to email it. By far one of the top two horrible companies.

Horrible system. Can't believe they keep getting good reviews. Easy to set up but problems almost every day. These sites keep stating pets don't set off motion detectors. Wanna bet? 8 pound kitty kept setting it off even when we followed advice and moved them up the wall and turned them over pointing up. Now we're set if Spider Man beaks in and crawls across the ceiling! Police threatened to start charging for responding to false alarms. One problem after another. Lost WiFi signal over and over. Moved base all over the house. Had to get replacements for base, entry sensors, siren, batteries. All this in first 2 months! Tech support is the WORST! Takes 30 min's average on hold. Lost track of the hours we spent on the phone due to this junk. Never knew if we were protected when we went to sleep or too work. Sending back for refund.

It is as advertised - easy to install. But, customer service leaves you on hold forever. If you don’t use there monitoring the base unit flashes bright blue non stop- might as well leave your front door standing open. It is a signal that your not linked to a call center and are open for a burglary. Even though u own equipment u must use only their monitoring- no other option.

For many years I was delighted by Simplisafe but these last 8 months it's been one problem after an other and hours wasted with various service persons. I have often been told that technical department is working on the issue( apparently blaming Apple IOS updates for the problem...) If the simply safe system is incompatible with Apple's new IOS customers need to be told.

Useless. I had Vivint and it worked perfectly but was expensive so I tried Simplisafe, Setup ws a nightmare and when I called support after 21 minutes I talked with a customer service person. First thing she wanted to talk about was upgrading my system not discussing my problem. I told her I was trying the system before I upgraded. She continued to ask me about upgrading while trying to fix my problem. We never completely fixed the problem. I boxed up everything and set it back for a refund. I have yet to get the refund. This product is a great idea with very poor implementation. I am back at Vivint and know my house is safe again.

Zero stars would be more appropriate. After 5 false alarms and many other problems, I’ve had it with SimpliSafe; it’s tome to tell the world what a failure SimpliSafe is, cancel my service, and send the system-crap back for a refund. 1) it’s so simple that it is not secure or safe: after $800 worth of sensors, 5 don’t work: two of which keep giving us false alarms (the police no longer go to the house to check because SimpliSafe has cried wolf too many times). 2) setup forces users to use preselected names for sensors (e.g., patio door when we don’t have a patio and we already used back Door for the other door on our house) and provides no correlation between serial numbers and setup names ... makes it impossible to know which sensor(s) are being triggered. 3) if you don’t have internet or WiFi, they “say” it will work using a cell signal; but none of their customer service people know that your system is a cell-signal system ... they talk down to you like you are required to have internet and WiFi. 4) if you want two or more people to be able to monitor/arm/disarm the system, you have to share the same email and password (which is inherently insecure ... truly secure systems require unique, secret, private identity to be authenticated which means NO SHARED PASSWORDS can be allowed ... if a couple gets a divorce, the one kicked out of the house can legitimately wreak havoc in the other). 5) the base station firmware updates... remember the marketing people at SimpliSafe swore we could use the system without internet or WiFi ... actually, when our base station firmware was not compatible with the cell tower server, most of the SimpliSafe tech support was clueless that it was failing to connect because the firmware update was not loaded... after they figured that out, they shipped us a replacement base station assuming it would have updated firmware ... ... ... you guessed it, they don’t update firmware before shipping inventory from their warehouse ... after getting the second basestation (now 2 with the wrong firmware), I had to use the data plan on my cell phone to create a WiFi hotspot to download the firmware update ... jeez, why pay SimpliSafe when I’m working harder than they are? 6) now they have put more money in their founder’s pocket by subcontracting our the monitoring-call Service; since the monitoring call service toll free number was not on my contact for SimpliSafe, it looked like a scam/hacker/marketing call so I did not answer it (two weeks later they sent an email out telling people about the new number ... however, since the monitoring/call service does not have access to see what sensor(s) in your system is(are) triggered when the system alerts, they are useless to help decide if the police should be called... the SimpliSafe operations staff has been severely reduced, so there is now an hour wait to get someone online to diagnose if it’s an alert from one sensor gone bad (ie, a false alarm) or if many sensors are seeing a burglar go through your house and steal you blind. SimpliSafe might have been a good idea by a college student wanting security for his dorm room, but he has proven to be shallow and incompetent at maturing the idea into a real security solution.

SimpliSafe Home Security review On 7/31/2018 I upgraded an existing system we had from SimpliSafe, from a solicitation to upgrade for a reduced price by returning our old system. We purchased a camera as part of the package but could not get it to work. The cameras did not work and we switched out at least 5 of them. Two worked for about a week and then went off line and could not be reconnected. I have spent at least at least 648 minutes (which is 10.8 HOURS) over a minimum of 28 phone calls to rectify the situation. It took an act of congress to receive $59.40 refund for the non-functioning camera. I finally became so frustrated I cancelled both our personal and business accounts. We asked for a refund on the system, Simplisafe refused stating the order was over 60 days. This was over sixty days because we kept trying to get the camera to work and Simplisafe continued to insist we replace the camera. I spent hours trying to get this to work from August through the end of November and then waited months to receive the refund after many LONG phone calls being told it was being refunded and then excuse after excuse of why it had not been refunded. I would have given up trying to get the $59.40 back but it is the principal. How many people have the stolen money from? People who just give up because you really have little reasonable options. I want to return the system and receive a full refund.

Equipment does not function as advertised. The motion sensors went off when our 60 lb. dog walked through the room. (which caused false alarm fines in the county that we live in!). Customer service was horrible. Returned our system for a refund. They had our system for almost a month before they refunded our $350.00! Would NOT recommend this company. Cheaper is certainly not better when it comes to your family's protection.

I bought into the system three years ago. Expanded it over the house. It was simple to set up and easy to operate. When I had a minor clitch, I could call customer service and get it solved. Then one day the entire system went down. Called customer service, every thing we tried would not bring it up. I kept saying it was the keypad, but Simple Safe tech on telephone kept saying it was not. I finally got frustrated after three weeks of nothing being done, canceled my subscription, and gave all the sensors, smoke alarm, telephone cone away to someone who had the service. Weeks later, he told me the key pad was no good and that was the problem. I went with ADT.

Components are average. Already the camera does not record despite being on the phone with simplisafe on 3 occasions for at least one hour each time in order to fix this issue. The 2nd time they told me they would contact their supervisor and would call me back in 3 days. No call back. When I finally called back, they had no idea what I was talking about. Had to go through the same questions and process again, still could not get the camera to record. Sensors always give me an error reading. 2 stars because it’s better than nothing I guess.

Customer service after you’re a “customer” is a joke! I don’t know if they are really even monitoring my system. My adult children have come over while I’m not home (helping with animals or yard chores) and have set it off, forgot the code, called me to get it in order to turn off the alarm. My settings are set to be called immediately but I have not once received a call, no police, nothing!! You have to wait 40+ mins to speak to someone and that’s IF they’re open. Yes, the alarm company actually closes!! Put your money elsewhere!! Their “system” is a loud noise that hopefully makes intruders leave.

The system was easy to install, they don't have heat detectors for my garage area but systems works ok. The HUGE problem no one has addressed is that you can arm the system with a door open and does not alert you. This happened when one of my Grand children left a basement door open. Customer support says there is no setting to change so this cant happen again.

I picked up their service a week ago, and they suck! Phone hold times pushing 40 minutes; an ALARM COMPANY that CLOSES THEIR OFFICE AT NIGHT. Sold me an alarm system for about $600, then THE NEXT DAY started advertising brand new, updated equipment (their "holiday sale" was obviously a fire sale to shift their outdated stock onto unsuspecting customers). The base station they sent had a broken cell circuit board, and they MAILED ME A CIRCUIT BOARD TO INSTALL MYSELF. I had to wait 40 minutes on hold to figure out why the new board didn't have a SIM card like the old one did (are paper instructions that expensive?). Oh, and you can't find info on your equipment on their site. Just photos and prices. My 7 POUND CAT set off their "pet friendly" motion sensor, and their advice? "Install it upside down" (another 40 minute told to get that valuable nugget). Pretty sure their glass break detectors are fake, since I can't get one to go off in testing. They ask you to LEAVE A MESSAGE every 45 seconds that you're on hold, and then don't return your calls (for at least five days, so far), or emails. Their customer service reps call the company "SimpleSafe" because they're apparently temps who have no idea what they're doing or who they're working for. They don't even allow customers to post on their Facebook page. ADT was expensive at my old place, but they actually had customer support and working hardware.

20180121 I’m updating my review. My experience now is significantly better than it was. I reached a supervisor named Kathy. 1- Kath was very responsive, and followed through on her word to connect with me to solve a technical problem I had setting up the camera. She is great. 2- Thanks to Kathy, the cameras are successfully set up and work now. Because I was on the verge of sending the equipment back, Kathy worked with me to give me some more time for the guarantee - as the cameras hadn’t been set-up so during this time period. Additionally, I got a call from a person named Adam and I asked if I could have his info in case I needed it; he followed up with an e-mail with his contact info. That Simplisafe did the above means to me that want to work me, so I take that as a good thing. 20180112 I’ve had them for 6 weeks. Their customer service is awful. Just to be clear, AWFUL. I had no problem with the simple door/window contacts, but the camera (I have two) does not work. I have called customer service. Multiple times. Mostly they are not available. They big time SUCK. It’s clear (at least to me) they just do not care. I am returning all the equipment and contacting my credit card company to make sure I get a refund.

I bought a package on sale that has more items than needed but a better price than a custom package. SIMPLI instructions neeed mere details. It shlould be stated clearly that unused items need to be deactivated otherwise error messages occur and system does not work. It would have also been helpful to know that each security item has a specific number to keep a record of where each device is. I called customer service 3 times (first two calls I hung up in frustration) and waited for over 30 minutes to speak to a representative. SIMPLI UNACCEPTABLE

The base unit couldn't connect to the dispatch center upon installation. I kept getting robot emails telling me to connect. I called the help center every day for 4 days and left messages about this common issue and they didn't call back. On the 5th day I left messages and emails stating I wanted a refund (Love it or send it back for 60 days). Still no response. I filed a complaint with PayPal stating I wanted a refund and SimplySafe wasn't responding. Later that evening, 6:32PM, the SimplySafe help center FINALLY called. I told them they were too late and I wanted a refund and they still haven't furnished the return process info. Paid system cost: $390.59.

This security system was very easy to install and seems like it will work. Although, when I do a test, the dispatch center takes 30 minutes to call. When I asked them if this was a real break in, would it take 30 minutes, they said, "hopefully not". This is very concerning! Not to mention, every time I call customer service, I wait on hold for 45 minutes. I recommend not going with this company.

Easy to install but did not work. First customer service advised me the tower was not in the right place as they kept losing connection. Moved it several times and reset each time but to no avail. They finally sent me out a new chip to install in the tower. Once that was taken care of the alarm would not go off when we opened the door or when we opened the door and the alarm did go off we did not receive a call advising us the alarm had sounded. I received two touch pads for my home. One would say the alarm was set the other would say it was not set. Customer service had me take both touch pads off the wall and set them next to each other and reset. Put them back on the wall and again they would not read the same. After multiple resets I advised them we were sending all back as my 60 days was about up and they would not extend. If someone breaks into your home and they break the tower withing 60 seconds ( that is called a smash and grab by the way) Simpli-Safe will ignore it as they did when we set our alarm off accidentally. Reason being it stopped within 60 seconds. And your tower is the alarm so it leads someone right to itself.

Excellent engineering. Very easy install. Sketchy instruction manual - needs work. Excellent Email/Blog response. Don't know about phone - didn't try that. No regrets purchasing.

Easy installation with or without cameras. Add as many or as little parts as you feel comfortable with. Great response to alarm situation when my wife left a dog in the house and the motion sensor was set off.

Setup was easy, however, felt I was misled to think g I could self-monitor my home. Nope! They gotta charge you that monthly fee, if you want to see activity on your phone. Two thumbs down.. Returning equipment!

Had 2 faulty doorbells. Was told that they could not do anything for the trouble and could not ship a return box because everyone is working from home. I am expected to pay for a new box and go to return both faulty doorbells. Worst customer service ever! Do not buy!!!

Sadly, I had the same experience in calling Technical Support twice today to ask about some technical issues with their equipment. I thought that it was a coincidence that I held for 20 plus minutes twice, and on both occasions the phone then rang and hung up...UNTIL I read the review that said the same thing. How stupid. Trying to chase business away? No thanks. You blew it.

Simplisafe is the Worst. Customer Service is nonexistent. They have a call center that sounds like a party going on, and their responses are always the same...take out the battery and reboot. I have made so many calls to their center and asked for a supervisor but I never get one I am canceling out my service as I feel it is useless since it does not Function as stated.

I like the price $14.99 per month. However I do not like the following. 1. The hold time waithing for a customer service representative is long, as long as 90 minutes to get my first issue resolved. 2. The part I requested, a remote key fob, has been sent to me three times, each time it is the wrong part. 3. The rep said he would call me when shipping the 3rd one to verify I received the right one, no call. 4. I emailed them and asked for a manager, quick reply that a manager would call me, three days now, no call. Very disatisfied, whose in charge there?
