Home Security – SimpliSafe Giving Consumers What They Really Want

This is a partnered guest post.


Have you or someone you’ve known ever been the victim of a home burglary?  If so, then you know it’s one of the most awful and terrifying experiences that anyone can go through.  Usually when something like this occurs, it’s typically the time you start thinking about your home security.

What holds people back from purchasing a home security system?  Yup, in many cases it comes down to the almighty dollar.  There’s a false impression out there that home security systems are expensive, high maintenance, and troublesome.  This is unfortunately the image painted in people’s heads by major home alarm companies such as ADT.

A Little History…

In the past, the major security alarm companies have been selling out-of-date technology at prices that even the wealthy would cringe at.  One of the oldest tricks in the books is by offering free installation or a $99 system.  What they’re not telling you is that you are committing to a long-term contract that is loaded to the gills with fine print and provisions.

Did I mention how hard it is to break one of these contracts?  There’s a small detail hidden in most traditional alarm contracts that prevent you from cancelling service, meaning your stuck paying $40-$55 a month for three years.  The only way possible to break the agreement is by paying 75% of the three year term.  It doesn’t take a brainiac to see that this is unfair and insane, but unfortunately the major alarm companies are really successful in getting people to sign these contracts.

Here’s a little inside secrete:  You don’t need to get an expensive wired- and- worrisome home security system.  There is a DIY home security system out there that is simple to install and offers all the same bells and whistles that the major guys provide, minus the expensive costs and trouble.  Ladies and gentlemen, I present SimpliSafe.

Why More Homes Are Choosing SimpliSafe Home Security Systems Over the “Other Guys:”
