Lawrence Tognetti Menlo Park, CA

I have not ever received the alarm yet and it has been a terrible experience. I have called customer service 4 times to find out where my alarm is and I have gotten 3 different stories of where it may be and one answer after being on hold while trying to find it that they have to call me back. Needless to say, it been two days and no callback and still no evidence that the item has been shipped, but they have my money. My suggestion find a different company this on is not ready the customer service is the worst I have ever experienced

Bought their special around Christmas. They kept selling, but they quit supporting for a little too long. No answer to voice mails, no answer to email. A TOTAL breakdown and, from a security company TOTALLY unacceptable. I wonder how many new customers were left TOTALLY unprotected while they were down. I thought this was a good company. That changed very quickly.

Bad experience, as the system was constantly giving us errors even though we set everything up properly. Would work fine for a few days, and then a random error would pop up with one of the sensors even though we didn't do anything to trigger it, move any sensor, or prompt the error. Spent waaaaaay too much time on the phone with them with super long hold times (20-30 mins). A new version of system came out right after we bought ours unfortunately for us.

I purchased this system because of the great reviews. I had some problems with installing the equipment and attempted to contact customer service for help. What a disappointment that was. I would wait on the phone around 30 to 40 minutes to no avail. They gave an option to enter "5" for a call back. They NEVER call back. After going through this routine around four times on different days I gave up and sent the equipment back for a refund. I feel like this would have been a good system but let the buyer beware of getting help when having problems.

I purchased the top system—700+ dollars. I had a few concerns and ATTEMPTED to contact CUSTOMER NO SERVICE. So disappointed. Called twice and left my number. SimpliSafe NEVER CALLED BACK. Then I tried again and was on hold for 23 minutes THEN WAS DISCONNECTED. When I called in to cancel my service and return my equipment, I was told by the gentleman that spoke to me that this is the problem with SimpliSafe, they don’t have enough people to take care of customer service and so many people are getting frustrated. ME TOO!!!

I've had SimpliSafe for about one year now. Outstanding equipment and support. They don't rob you with overpriced equipment or monitoring fees.

Had the worst experience while activating. I have had alarm systems on numerous properties over the years but this call to SimpliSafe really got my blood boiling. I was told that I have to go to a higher cost plan so SimplySafe can tell me what sensor location triggered the alarm. What nonsense? ADT would always tell me what triggered the alarm. I bought two systems over the holidays to protect the two homes I own. The monitoring price was attractive but this episode really turned me off. Will not activate and will look for another monitoring service. STAY AWAY FROM SIMPLISAFE!!!

We learned ONLY through trial and error that the camera does NOT work with 5G network. Had to return camera. Other than that it satisfies our needs.

Simple install for someone who is not IT type. Quick response to alarms and no hassle replacing bad parts. System tell you if you have a bad sensor when trying to set alarm.

Customer service is abysmal. Emails and phone calls are not returned. Refunds take forever to obtain. This is not a responsive company. I did not feel valued as a customer.

Got their system and installed it. First test failed. Returned the system weeks ago - still no refund. Called several times - very long holds and when finally connected, got disconnected. HORRIBLE customer service. Customer service? - not sure that’s in their lexicon.

The cameras and the video door bell do not link up well with WiFi. The wait times for customer service is very long. Dogs under 50 lbs. set off the motion detectors despite the claims to the opposite. When you do get customer service they do try to help but the equipment is junk.

System is user friendly but if anything goes wrong forget about customer service. I’ve been on the phone now for 1 hour and 45 min. I’ve spoke to someone for 5 min who put me on a “brief hold”.

I have had a basic system for over 1 year. The system functions great most of the time! But, beware if your system malfunctions after 12:00am (eastern)- actually Customer Service will not answer after about 11:45pm. You are unprotected, and have no recourse until Customer Service reopens in the morning. This is not 24/7 protection.

The system was easy to set up but never functioned as advertised. They claimed to have cellular coverage in my area and obviously did not. Turnaround for contacting support measures in days not hours. I was never able to get support when I was working on the system at our beach home. I am returning the system to get a refund.

Though I was saving with DIY and I am a master DIY guy. False fire alarms led to billing by fire department, which cost more then the system. Had to disconnect. Our old system shorted out after a electrical storm surge. The whole idea was to have fire/smoke protection.

Useless if you lose power even for a second. Phone app give false confirmation of alarm status. Demands you manually check the system weekly to see if it is still working. Really just the perception of security.
