Enabling Secret Alerts for your SimpliSafe Sensors


What are Secret Alerts?

Secret Alerts are private notifications sent to you by specific sensors you designate to be on a special “alert-only” setting. Sensors on this setting won’t trigger a system alarm or chime to the Base Station, but send a discreet notification directly to you instead. 

What SimpliSafe Products Use Secret Alerts?

  • Entry Sensor

  • Motion Sensor

  • Glassbreak Sensor

How do I enable Secret Alerts?

To enable Secret Alerts:

  1. Navigate to the three-bar menu on the SimpliSafe app

  2. Choose ‘My System’

  3. Select ‘Device Settings’ 

  4. Then tap the device you wish to customize

  5. Choose Off, Home, or Away from under ‘Alarm Mode’

  6. Next, choose ‘Secret Alert’ and then ‘Send to Base’ to save this setting
