Today we want to share a story from Freshome reader Paige, who installed SimpliSafe in her apartment after a break in:
The window/door sensors are magnetic, so you can install them at an angle, which was great for my outward-swinging back door.
The system can function without a contract or subscription of any kind, but if you’re interested in having 24/7 monitoring and having automatic police dispatch in case of an emergency (I was), there’s two different plans you can sign up for. I went with the premium plan because there’s so much more that I can monitor remotely through my phone, which is important to me because I travel.
One of the things I really like about this system is that connecting sensors is a breeze, and it can be completely customized to your space and security needs. Through the keypad you can recognize, name, and activate/deactivate devices whenever you want. Also, you can shop on simplisafe for additional devices, such as cameras, window-shatter detectors, key-fobs, and more.

Then, in the body of the email, please provide an explanation of why you chose to do the project, an outline of steps you took to get it done, and any advice for readers considering similar projects.

And that’s it! Easy, right? If selected, your story will be shared as an article on Freshome!
