Simplisafe Home Security System is the closest thing to a traditional home security system. Rather than being based around a camera, the base Simplisafe package is built around a keypad, Wi-Fi hub, entry sensors and motion sensors. If you'd like a more advanced system, you can add on a 105dB siren, a smoke sensor, flood sensor, temperature sensor and CO sensor. All Simplisafe systems are backed up by a 5-year Lithium battery so your family will stay safe through outages.
With a wireless burglar alarm system such as SimpliSafe (simplisafe.com), you just "peel and stick" the motion detectors, door-opening sensors, and keypads into position, and they'll sync wirelessly. You can also get smoke and carbon monoxide alarms—and operate the system remotely from a smartphone app. A cellular connection transmits a signal to a call center for 24/7 monitoring, all for about $15 a month. | Photo: SimpliSafe.com | thisoldhouse.com
