SimpliSafe, Inc., makers of the nation’s premier wireless home security system, today launched Professional Monitoring Plus Smart Alerts, a service to provide text message and email alerts to give customers instant access to important alarm and security information.
SimpliSafe is a simple, secure and complete wireless alarm system. Using entirely wireless components, the alarm system can be easily customized and self-installed by a homeowner or renter, and is portable for use at the owner's next residence. The system connects to a 24-hour Emergency Dispatch Center using a built-in cellular alarm transmitter, so their customers do not need a phoneline. SimpliSafe provides wireless home security systems and cellular alarm monitoring nationwide.
The new SimpliSafe Smart Alerts feature will help customers stay informed by sending Email or SMS text alerts anytime an intruder triggers their SimpliSafe alarm system.
“Our new Smart Alerts add another layer of knowledge and safety for our customers when they are away from home,” said SimpliSafe CEO Chad Laurans. “Our customers already get a phone call from our monitoring center when their alarm is triggered. Adding Email or SMS text alerts is yet an additional way to stay on top of what’s happening in your home.”
SimpliSafe customers can also choose to receive email or SMS text alerts any time their system is disarmed or rearmed. This is an effective, instant way for customers to know who is going in and out of their home and when. For example:
--If you’re on vacation and have a neighbor coming over to water plants or feed your pets, you’ll get a text message or email as soon as the neighbor turns your alarm off, and back on again.
--If you’re at work when the kids come home from school you’ll get an email or text message as soon as they turn off the alarm.
--If you’ve got a teenager with a curfew, you’ll be able to see exactly when they got home the night before.
--You’ll know if the sitter leaves with the kids for soccer practice and forgets to set the alarm.
--You’ll know if the housekeeper really did stay for the full 4 hours of cleaning you paid for.
--If you live in an apartment, you’ll know if your landlord has been inside while you’re out.
“Smart Alerts are a great way for our customers to keep tabs on who’s coming and who’s going when they’re away from home,” said Laurans. “We can turn your cell phone or email program into an invaluable extension of your entire home security system.”
Other alerts include power outage and power restored alerts as well as low battery warnings. However, given the fact that SimpliSafe sensors have a 5+ year battery life, customers aren’t likely to get the low battery warning anytime soon.
Professional Monitoring Plus Smart Alerts costs $19.99 a month. Monitoring service without the Smart Alerts costs $14.99 a month.
The best part is, SimpliSafe offers it's alarm monitoring service without the long-term contracts. Their customers pay-as-they-go and never worry about cancellation fees or being tied down by a 3-year alarm contract.
