SimpliSafe Reviews: CNET Editors' Pick for Best Home Security System

Tech experts at CNET honor SimpliSafe Home Security with the "Editors' Choice Award," citing "thoughtful design" and "outstanding value."

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., March 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Wireless home security company SimpliSafe has been named the latest recipient of the coveted CNET Editors' Choice Award. The award, widely considered "the hallmark of good product performance and value," is awarded to the "best of breed" in various categories.

SimpliSafe Home Security has been making affordable, customizable wireless alarm systems since 2007. The system's DIY setup, flexible monitoring options, and wide variety of features have customers flocking to SimpliSafe, giving the company a rapidly expanding market share.  In an industry notorious for poor customer satisfaction, it's notable that Amazon customers give SimpliSafe a 4.5 out of 5 star rating and that the Better Business Bureau rates SimpliSafe an A+ home security provider. 

"We provide a contract-free, user-friendly experience in an industry normally dominated by fine print and fearmongering," explained SimpliSafe CEO Chad Laurans. "We're very proud that these efforts have been recognized by the experts at CNET." 

In his review, CNET Editor Ry Crist praised SimpliSafe's "thoughtful design," "easy-to-use system," and "outstanding value," reserving particular accolades for the system's built-in safeguards, alarm response protocol, a la carte sensor addition, and Remote Arm/Disarm.  "The more I used the system, the more it impressed me," Crist concluded. "I recommend SimpliSafe over just about any other home security system." 

CNET, a leading technology news and reviews organization, grants its Editors' Choice Awards to "tech and consumer electronics of the highest quality, design, and performance." SimpliSafe Home Security joins other innovative, renowned companies—such as Apple, Samsung, and Mercedes-Benz—on the 2013 Editors' Choice roster.
