Using Google Assistant, we armed our SimpliSafe system in home or away mode under the Interactive Plan. But if you’re in the Amazon ecosystem, SimpliSafe is still a good choice, if not better. Using Alexa, we had our system arm in home or away mode, lock up our August smart locks, or tell us our current status. On top of that, we integrated our Nest thermostats with our SimpliSafe system so that our doors locked whenever the system was armed. Talk about killing two birds with one stone!

SimpliSafe is one of our favorites due to its flexibility and affordability. What exactly do we mean by that? Well, SimpliSafe offers DIY or professional installation, although we chose DIY. We could also choose between Alexa and Google Assistant plus self-monitoring or 24/7 professional monitoring. With scalable packages, we had fun adding the SimpliSafe Video Doorbell Pro to our system, as well as integrating Nest thermostats and August smart locks.


What We Like
  • Alexa and Google Assistant integrations
  • Fast DIY installation
  • Affordable professional monitoring
  • Month-to-month contracts
What We Don’t Like
  • Cloud storage, smart platform integrations, remote control and notifications only available with Interactive Plan
  • History of hacks
  • Indoor camera lacks person detection
  • Self-monitoring turns system into local alarm only
