How To Find or Change Your Master PIN


What Is A Master PIN?

Your Master PIN is a four-digit sequence used to arm and disarm your SimpliSafe system, lock and unlock your Smart Lock, and is the number required in order to access the Keypad’s menu. When setting up your system, you will be prompted to create a Master PIN.

Please note that the Master PIN is different from your Safe Word. Your Safe Word will be needed to make changes to your monitoring subscriptions and to verify or cancel an alarm event when you’re on the phone with our team of experts.
