SimpliSafe: SimpliSafe's Award-Winning Smart Home Security System Is Now 10% Off Smart home security systems never sleep on the job, and they can do a whole lot more than providing simple CCTV coverage. SimpliSafe is one of the front-runners in this up-and-coming industry for good reason, delivering clever wireless sensors and 24/7 professional monitoring. Designed by a Harvard grad, this innovative platform has several advantages over traditional home security systems. For one, SimpliSafe is much cheaper than ADT or Vivint. Flexible contracts allow you to pay only for what you need for as long as need, without signing your life away to a longterm contract. Perhaps best of all, SimpliSafe is remarkably easy to install. You don't even need a fixed phone line, let alone an engineer to get your home security up and running. If you've considered investing in a home security system, you'll want to take advantage of their current offer of 10% off.

Your answer could have something to do with fears of a complicated installation. It could be tied to the requirement of maintaining a home phone line, a practice continuing its slow fade into the obscurity of VCRs and buggy whips. Or you may just hate the idea of adding another ongoing service contract fee that's coming out...This story continues at The Next WebThe Next Web
