Enabling the SimpliSafe Home Control skill in the Alexa app is simple, and commands like "Alexa, tell SimpliSafe I'm leaving" to arm the system in Away mode, "Alexa, tell SimpliSafe good night" to arm the system in Home mode, and "Alexa, ask SimpliSafe if my home is secure" to get system status worked well in testing. There was little lag between the voice command and the base station announcing status or changes in system modes. The Alexa integration only works with the new SimpliSafe hardware, and the system can't be disarmed via voice for obvious reasons. With the monthly Interactive Plan, you can use SimpliSafe's Online Dashboard or mobile app to control the system, including arming and disarming it. The Dashboard also lets you view your System Event Log, change your PIN, assign up to four guest PINs, and choose an optional Duress PIN, to use when an intruder is coercing you to disable the alarm. Enter it, and the alarm will stop sounding, but SimpliSafe will immediately send the police.

ADT remains one of the most traditional home security brands on the market, but the company has updated its packages with a Pulse line of smart home devices. They’ve also partnered with other brands like Nest and Samsung SmartThings, so it’s easy to find what type of home security system you’re looking for. They’ve also been known to add in perks like free installations for low tier packages, and freebies like a Nest Thermostat with the right video setups. However, reading the fine print is important: ADT monitoring has some of the most restrictive contracts in the business. Your home is an important extension of yourself, and its security is paramount. Home security should be a high priority in your life, but the installation of a home security system can be prohibitively expensive.
