Equipment Cost

 

SimpliSafe sells their equipment in packages that range from a $230 Starter Package up to their $540 Ultimate Package. On average, SimpliSafe’s packages cost about 15% less than comparable equipment from GetSafe. All SimpliSafe packages are offered without a contract, which means you pay month-to-month.

GetSafe offers a substantial discount if you sign up for a 1-year contact. With their annual plan, you’ll get a free Starter Kit, which is a $249 value. That option can make GetSafe dramatically cheaper than SimpliSafe.

For example, SimpliSafe’s Economy Package costs $260. A comparable GetSafe system costs $68 when purchased with a 1-year contract.

Home Automation

GetSafe works with Nest. It also supports Z-Wave, which allows it to work with products like the August doorbell, Yale door locks and a range of other products. You can even integrate GetSafe with your Amazon Echo and work your system by voice command.

That means GetSafe can be the centerpiece of a full-featured home security and home automation suite.

Mobile-Friendly

Both companies have a mobile phone app that lets you check your system from anywhere with an Internet connection. But GetSafe is completely mobile, doing away with the old-fashioned control panel that many users find awkward. Instead, our system is powered entirely from your smartphone.

 

Reputation

 

Both GetSafe and SimpliSafe have great reputations and offer superior customer service. TrustPilot gives GetSafe a 9.2/10 rating based on customer reviews, while SimpliSafe was given an A+ rating by the Better Business Bureau.

 

 

Which Should You Choose?

 

You’ll get great a home security system from either company. But if you think you’ll want to expand your system by adding other home security and home automation products, choose GetSafe.

If having a no-contract option is your main criteria, choose SimpliSafe because of its lower no-contract cost. If don’t mind a 1-year contract, GetSafe is much more affordable system.
