A few months ago, we took a look at SimpliSafe 2, a home alarm system that can be self-installed and doesn’t require a contract, opting instead for monthly pricing plans. SimpliSafe now has an app out that will allow you to monitor your new security system from your smartphone.
SimpliSafe lets you know immediately if an alarm in your house has been triggered. You’ll be able to turn alarms on or off remotely, and be notified when any alarm is deactivated (implying that, perhaps, one of your children just came home from school). With the app event log, you can mark sensitive areas of your house using the security system, then see exactly when those areas have been accessed. A new temperature sensor will alert you if the temperature in your house becomes too low, which can help to prevent leaky or burst pipes.
