Have a SimpliSafe Home Security System. On a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the best I rate it a 15. Components are terrific, accurate and easy to install. Monitoring is outstanding! As for the app, on the same scale, minus 15. Damn thing kept flashing, I force quit it, reinstalled it and it did the same thing. From other reviews I've read, dial it back a notch and fix the issues. SimpliSafe has the makings of setting the bar for ADT, Vector and others.
Simple and Effective I'm new to SimpliSafe so I have no experience with the old app. This app is simple and does exactly what I need it to. It arms/disarms the system and shows the activity log. If I want to dig in the weeds my phone has a Web browser if I need to do it from mobile. I wouldn't mind seeing more functionality from the app but I do understand that it's probably best "for the masses" as is.
Phone smurfs are angry. But I'm happy! They can d-around online at website account if needed. App DOES show temperature, and can use a pin, if wanted. App is cleaner, arms system faster, less data needed. A huge plus when cell connection is sparse, or have more important things to do. Love it!
DOES NOT WORK!! This app will not turn the system off/on even when I'm standing right beside the base station. It currently says I am *away* but I've really been *home* for 8+ hours. The timeline says *no events* despite the fact there have been, and it is not updating the temperature either. This app is useless.
Not a good move SS If your going to put home addresses on the App, maybe you should have it give Google maps step by step directions for any criminal that might somehow obtain our phones. Did SS forget this is a security system. I suggest you fix this or better yet bring back the old app until you create a new one worthy of a great security system, and of it's subscribers.
Update doesn't not work The app has never made a successful connection when I tried to turn the alarm on. I am back to the old way of setting an alarm, using the key pad by my door. SUCKS! I shouldn't be billed for this crap. I blame the person or persons who signed to release this app. You should resign ASAP.
*Brand new Dashboard featuring simple Tap to Arm/Disarm function
*New endless scroll Timeline lets you easily find alarm events without flipping pages
*Password memory lets you use the app without logging in between uses - with a simple new logout function.
