Our Expert Opinion

“With Simplisafe, you get a similar package to ours and you only pay $14.99 per month for monitoring without having to commit to a long term contract. Great, right? Well, not so fast.

You pay $399.99 up-front for the equipment AND you have to install the system yourself. We’re wary of these DIY home security companies who claim ‘it’s so easy a child could do it.’ It makes me wonder why our adult, certified installers with over 10 years experience installing 2 systems per day take up to 4 hours to complete just one installation.

Unless you’re really technically inclined, when you install an alarm system yourself, you run the risk of doing it wrong. In addition to screwing up phone line seizure, you may also tie up your local police force’s resources as they respond to repeated false alarms – and get fined for it.

Our recommendation is for anyone who wants to save money and install it yourself, just pay a bit more and let the pros do it. There’s no reason to leave the safety and security of your home in your own hands. After all, isn’t that why you’re thinking about an alarm system in the first place?
