It’s no secret that SimpliSafe has quickly become one of the most popular security systems on the market today. With flexible monitoring plans and an affordable, mostly wireless system, it’s not hard to see why. And good news for your wallet, the company is often offering sales and discounts when you order on their website. This page will help you save on SimpliSafe, making it simply more affordable than ever.

When Should I Look for a SimpliSafe Deal or Sale?

SimpliSafe has sales all year round, from Father’s Day to Memorial Day Weekend to Black Friday. Basically, if it’s a major sales time like the holidays or Cyber Monday, you can expect a generous sale from SimpliSafe. For example, their Father’s Day Sale this year gave users 25% off any new system plus a free camera, and we saw the exact same sale throughout the year under different names.

Does SimpliSafe Offer A Free Trial?

Great news: SimpliSafe offers a 60-day money-back guarantee. Although it’s not technically a free trial as SimpliSafe charged our card when we first bought the equipment and monitoring plans, if we weren’t happy with our system in the first 60 days, we could have returned it for a full refund. This would even include postage, with SimpliSafe sending us a prepaid return label. Believe us, this isn’t typically the case for security systems, so we appreciate that buying SimpliSafe wasn’t a risk to us financially.

Tip: Once you purchase your SimpliSafe system, mark 60 days later in your calendar so you know when you would need to return it if you don’t like it.

What Deals has SimpliSafe Offered in the Past?

Although SimpliSafe is known for its affordability, we’ve seen a number of discounts in the past, including:

$220 Off A Beacon System

Originally priced at around $519, SimpliSafe has offered huge cutbacks on their Beacon security system, which includes a base station, wireless keypad, keychain remote, 105-decibel siren, SimpliCam indoor camera, two motion sensors, and six entry sensors. Currently, you can get this kit for only $299.

25% to 30% Off Any New SimpliSafe System Plus A Free Camera

This is the typical offer we see on holidays throughout the year.

Military Discounts

Both active duty and retired members of the military can cash in on discounts with SimpliSafe.

Homeowner’s Insurance Company Discounts

Get up to 20% on your homeowner’s insurance simply by showing them a certificate from SimpliSafe1.

Refurbished Systems

One way to save money is to buy a refurbished system as opposed to a brand new system. Of course, the company checks them all to make sure they work correctly, and they come with the same three-year warranty as the new systems; the only difference is they cost 20% to 30% less.

FYI: Refurbished systems cost 20% to 30% less than new systems, but they work exactly the same way and are protected under the same three-year warranty, so they’re a great way to save money on SimpliSafe.

Does SimpliSafe Ever Offer Discount Codes or Coupons?

SimpliSafe routinely offers discount codes and coupons, especially if it’s on or near a holiday. To find out, we recommend going straight to their website; deals are typically located at the top of the page. However, note that many deals only apply to people buying new systems, so if you’re buying add-on equipment to an existing system, you may not be able to get a discount. However, first-time buyers should definitely take advantage of SimpliSafe’s sales.

SimpliSafe Product Warranty

More good news: SimpliSafe has a three-year warranty on all of its products1. That means that if we found any defects on our devices within three years of buying them, SimpliSafe would replace them for free. Fortunately for us, we didn’t have any issues, but it’s nice to know that SimpliSafe stands by its products and its customers alike.

SimpliSafe Contracts

One of our favorite things about SimpliSafe is the fact that they didn’t make us sign a long-term contract. Rather, all of their monitoring and storage plans were month-to-month, so when we were done testing out the system, we just canceled our subscription without incurring any harsh fees. Many companies like ADT force customers to sign long contracts, three years in ADT’s case. If the customer wants to cancel, they could either have to pay for the rest of their subscription or have to pay a high cancellation fee, so we’re really glad that SimpliSafe makes their services so flexible.

More Information on SimpliSafe

We think SimpliSafe is worth the money, especially considering its affordable monitoring costs and flexible contracting, as well as how well the system works. However, if you’re new to SimpliSafe, here are the fast facts:

SimpliSafe Recap
  • DIY installation: We had no trouble installing the system ourselves, as the app guided us through the process step-by-step.
  • Integrations with Alexa and Google Assistant: We enjoyed controlling our SimpliSafe system through our trusted voice assistants, as well as showing our footage on our Echo and Nest smart displays.
  • Self or 24/7 professional monitoring: Although we opted for 24/7 professional monitoring for $24.99 a month, self-monitoring is also an option for those that want to avoid monthly fees. However, if you choose to self-monitor, remote control and notifications will be taken away, a definite drawback of SimpliSafe.
  • Scalable: We purchased the Summerfort system from SimpliSafe, but we added devices as time went on, like the SimpliSafe Video Doorbell Pro. This is great for someone that isn’t sure exactly what they need to begin with.
  • App for iOS and Android: From anywhere with an Internet connection, we streamed our SimpliCam’s footage, spoke to visitors, received motion notifications, and controlled our devices remotely through the user-friendly SimpliSafe app.
