UK residents will have access to the company's comprehensive, affordable, and professionally monitored home security solutions.
BOSTON, April 02, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SimpliSafe® announced today that its award-winning home security systems are now available for purchase in the United Kingdom, marking the company’s expansion overseas. Residents will have access to the same home security solutions that over three million Americans trust to keep their families, pets and property safe.
Ten years ago, SimpliSafe revolutionized the home security market in the United States by uniting the ease of wireless technology with the complete protection of professional monitoring. They will be the first company to offer their particular suite of services — including self-install sensors, guard response and video verification — in the UK. A 2018 survey from SimpliSafe found that only 13% of households in the United Kingdom have professionally monitored security systems with police dispatch, even though burglary rates have been rising in recent years.
“At SimpliSafe, our mission has always been to make every home secure,” said CEO Chad Laurans. “We’re excited to bring this vision to even more communities. With our top-grade engineering and unmatched professional monitoring capabilities, SimpliSafe users in the UK will be able to count on the same reliable home security services as our customers in the US.”
UK residents can purchase ready-made kits or build custom systems at the SimpliSafe UK website. A comprehensive system offers protection not only from home intrusion, but from fires, water damage, and freezing temperatures, and includes the SimpliCam®. SimpliSafe's Pro Premium interactive monitoring plan, which provides 24/7 professional monitoring plus police dispatch, video verification of alarms, text message alerts, smartphone app controls, and camera footage storage, is £19.99 per month. The Pro level plan, which provides 24/7 monitoring services, costs £12.99 per month.
This expansion is yet another indicator of SimpliSafe’s emergence as the leader in the home security space. The All-New SimpliSafe, released in January 2018, has received widespread acclaim since its launch—it was named “the best home security system” by The Verge and The Wirecutter, a New York Times company, and received the Editors’ Choice Award from CNET and PC Magazine.
SimpliSafe fundamentally changed the alarm industry, pioneering a new way to make home the safest place on earth for everyone. Founded in 2006, SimpliSafe was the first to offer homeowners professional-grade monitored home security with no long-term contracts and at radically fair prices. SimpliSafe now protects over 3 million people. The company remains committed to its founding goal: to make every home secure.
