How do I add new sensors to my existing SimpliSafe system?

 Updated 

Does your Keypad look like the one pictured to the left? Then you're in the right place! You've got the Gen 3 SimpliSafe system. If you purchased a system in 2017 or earlier, you have the Original SimpliSafe. Click here to view the article about the Original SimpliSafe. If you're not certain which system you have, you can tell the difference here.

New sensors can be added to our latest SimpliSafe system in one of two ways: through they Keypad or through the SimpliSafe Mobile App.

  1. Open the Menu on your Keypad (using your Master PIN)
