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.
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.
Huge step BACKWARDS Nothing about this update works on Samung 5 with latest Android updates! Worked great before. If you guys can't get an update straight how can I trust my security with you??? Interestingly, the old app, which I have refused to let my Samsung Tab 3 update, still works fine.
The old one I could check on the temp in my garage and my house. I need to be able to do that. My pump is in the garage and now the sensor there is useless. Don't like the new app at all. You guys screwed up a good app for thus. And as far as whining, I pay as much as you for the service that I WANT.
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.
