What are the service plan options?

 Updated 

At SimpliSafe, we’re always on, always protecting. Fast Protect™ Technology powers our home security system by combining innovative hardware with advanced AI and real people — for 24/7 professional monitoring that delivers fast emergency response when you need it most.

Our professional monitoring helps protect your home against many types of alarms - such as burglary/intrusion, life safety (Smoke, CO), and environmental (water, extreme temperature). Plans are paid monthly, with no contracts or hidden fees. 

You can also save up to 25% on your homeowner’s insurance with eligible monitoring plans. Learn more here.

Interactive Monitoring

This plan is our most popular and offers the most protection and peace of mind for the low monthly price of $27.99*. With this plan, you’ll get:

Standard Monitoring

With our Standard Monitoring plan at $17.99 a month, you’ll get our basic Professional Monitoring features without camera recordings or our advanced features.

  • 24/7 Emergency Dispatch (Police, Fire, Medical)

  • Fast Protect technology via Alarm Texts to help dispatch emergency services quickly

  • Built-in cellular connection for backup coverage in the event of a power outage

  • Control your system from your phone with the SimpliSafe App

  • Live video feed of your cameras from the SimpliSafe App

  • System timeline shows up to 7 days of history within the app

  • Push notifications

Self Monitoring with Camera Recordings

If you only have SimpliSafe Cameras in your system, you can still have access to enhanced features and peace of mind for $9.99 a month.

  • Access to recordings for 30 days for up to 5 cameras

  • Ability to download recordings to your phone or computer using the SimpliSafe mobile or web app

  • Manual recording when viewing the live stream

  • Control your system from your phone with the SimpliSafe App

Please note, this plan does not include professional monitoring.

Unmonitored

Some customers may choose to forego a monitoring plan and simply keep track of their system, and home, themselves. You still can access basic features without a plan - though you will need an internet connection to access these features.

We recommend that you at least test out our Interactive or Standard Monitoring Plans - free for one month! These provide the most security for your home and help you get the most out of your SimpliSafe system.

If you choose to forego a monitoring plan, you will still have access to:

  • Live video feed of your cameras from the SimpliSafe App

  • Remotely arm/disarm your system with the SimpliSafe App

Please note that without a professionally monitored plan, you will not have access to:

  • 24/7 Emergency Dispatch (Police, Fire, Medical)

  • Fast Protect technology to verify threats/emergencies and dispatch emergency services quickly

  • Built-in cellular connection for backup coverage in the event of a power outage

  • Unlimited camera recording and evidence capture, with ability to download video recordings from the app to your phone

  • Receive discounts for homeowner’s insurance

  • Subscription lifetime warranty

  • And more
