SimpliSafe has quickly become one of the most popular home security companies around. And why not? It has everything most people need to protect their homes, from sensors and security cameras, to panic buttons and video doorbells.
There’s no question that SimpliSafe is one of the top security companies today, but that doesn’t mean that you have to pay top dollar to enjoy its products. Here’s how SimpliSafe can help you simply save this Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
SimpliSafe Black Friday Sale
Last Black Friday, SimpliSafe offered 50-percent off of its security systems and components, a deal that lasted all the way through Cyber Monday. As a result, we saw all-time low SimpliSafe prices that Thanksgiving weekend. For instance, the Hearth Security System kit, which usually costs $374, sold for as low as $168.
If you missed out last year, don’t feel bad. SimpliSafe is bringing back its 50-percent off deals this year, and the good news is, you don’t have to wait for Black Friday. As of now, you can get any SimpliSafe security kit for half the regular price.
As if that’s not enough, you can increase your discount to 60 percent if you bundle it with an Interactive Monitoring plan right away. There’s more: If you bundle the Interactive Monitoring plan, the first month is free, and since there’s a 60-day return policy and no contracts, SimpliSafe is virtually a risk-free purchase. This is bigger and better than any of the SimpliSafe deals we see all-year round.
For reference, here’s a chart showing SimpliSafe’s regular pricing, early Black Friday pricing, and monitoring bundle pricing.
SimpliSafe Packages and Pricing
|Package name||Regular price||Early Black Friday price (50% off)||Black Friday + Monitoring bundle (60% off)|
Of course, to get the most bang for your buck, you need to choose a package that’s just right for your security needs. SimpliSafe’s most popular packages are The Foundation, The Essentials, The Hearth, The Knox, and The Haven. You can also create a customized system if you prefer, which may make sense if you live in an apartment or smaller home. However, given the number of packages available, one of the options below should work for you.
|Components||The Haven||The Knox||The Hearth||The Essentials||The Foundation|
|Key Fob||1||1||1||Not included||Not included|
|Auxiliary Siren||1||1||1||Not included||Not included|
|Smoke Detector||1||1||1||Not included||Not included|
|Panic Button||1||Not included||Not included||Not included||Not included|
|Freeze Sensor||1||Not included||Not included||Not included||Not included|
|Water Sensor||1||Not included||Not included||Not included||Not included|
If customization is more your thing, or if you want to add devices onto an existing SimpliSafe system, here are the prices for add-on equipment. And to see how we set up our SimpliSafe security system, read our SimpliSafe review.
|Glass Break Sensor||$34.99|
|Video Doorbell Pro||$169.00|
Tip: If you’re new to SimpliSafe, or even home security in general, we recommend buying a package rather than individual devices to unlock some great discounts.
Professional Monitoring and Storage
Equipment isn’t the only cost in SimpliSafe’s pricing. There are additional monthly plans for cloud video storage, 24/7 professional monitoring, or both. These add-on plans are optional, though, and you can still use your SimpliSafe security system without monthly fees. However, with SimpliSafe’s holiday 60-percent discount for systems bundled with Interactive Monitoring and the one-month free trial, there’s no better time than Black Friday and Cyber Monday to test out the Interactive Monitoring plan. If you like it, you can keep it for $24.99 a month. If you don’t, you can cancel for free and keep the system.
SimpliSafe Monitoring Options
|Features||Free Plan||Standard Monitoring||Interactive Monitoring||Self-Monitoring with Cloud Recording|
|24/7 professional monitoring||No||Yes||Yes||No|
|30-days of cloud storage||No||No||10 cameras||5 cameras|
|Live streaming of cameras||Yes||Yes||Yes||Yes|
|Smart home integrations||No||No||Yes||No|
|Video verified alarms||No||No||Yes||No|
SimpliSafe Background Information
We’re talking about home security, so it’s natural that you want a company you can trust. While it doesn’t have the brand recognition of older companies like ADT, SimpliSafe is rising up the ranks of the smart home security ladder. And given its easy DIY installation, customizable systems, and affordable professional monitoring, we can understand why, but let’s zoom out a bit.
Founded in 2006 in Boston, Massachusetts by Harvard Business School grads, the company was one of the first of its kind to include DIY installation and monthly contracting.1 By 2015, it had 300,000 customers, and in June 2020, it was bought by Hellman & Friedman, a private equity firm, for a cool one billion dollars.2 While the company has faced criticism for the vulnerability of its systems as well as its discounts for members of the National Rifle Association, it continued to rise in popularity, rising to 800 employees by 2020 with a second call center based out of Richmond, Virginia.3 Today, SimpliSafe works with Nest thermostats, August Smart Locks, Alexa, and Google Assistant, fitting right into different smart home ecosystems.
Of course, 50-percent savings is nothing to sneeze at, so now is the best time to try out SimpliSafe. Remember, there’s a 60-day return policy, so if you’re not satisfied, you can return the system and get your money back. We doubt that will happen, though, given how well SimpliSafe performed when we tested it. In any case, if you do decide to purchase a SimpliSafe system this Black Friday or Cyber Monday, consider getting the Interactive Monitoring plan as well. Just by doing so, you’ll unlock bigger savings and level up your home security status.
