Service Areas

Because SimpliSafe is based on your cellphone connectivity (not a landline), the coverage is rather wide, but you will have to visit their website to see if your zip code is covered.


SimpliSafe is customizable and will not rely on an installer to come into the home. By “simply” following the instructions, you can have your home security system set up. Also, with a no-contract, 60-day money back guarantee, and because the system is set up with a phone line, you will not have to worry about a burglar cutting the line.

Thanks to the use of National GSM, you will stay connected and your home protected.
