Sensor Adhesive Failure
It’s a little preposterous that this seems to be the best way to contact SimpliSafe about this, but while I was on vacation, the adhesive on one of my window sensors failed, triggering an alarm at 1am local time. I got notified by text in Europe 9 hours ahead, and had no choice but to have the police respond. Naturally, they determined it was a false alarm. I had no idea what had really happened until our cat sitter stopped in 12 hours later, which made for a rather nerve-wracking day on vacation.
I’ve had to replace SS sensor adhesives with 3M control strips several times previously, so this seems like a problem that ought to be addressed. My previous FrontPoint sensors adhered with some kind of super-sticky glue from Hell, and even though FP was otherwise terrible, the sensors certainly never came off.
Thanks for listening.
