Why are there no light switches?

I want to use SimpliSafe when I build my new house, there are all the components I need except there are no light switches.  I have to have light switches.  That work with all the other components.

Hi @Jengiantkiller  ,


Thanks for the suggestion. We'll definitely forward to our Product team. But just to set the expectation, our current focus is on the alarm and rapid response aspect of our system. So if we did expand more into the smart home space, particularly with integrating with other light switches, it won't be for a long time.

@davey_d​ While I don't really like the time line I do applaud the honesty!

it is a security concern though.  Please tell the product team that a security system should have the capability of turning all the lights on when it senses an intruder or when there’s a fire. That’s really all I want

@Jengiantkiller  At this time there are no Simplisafe light switches or plugs, and unfortunately, SS3 cannot connect with digital assistants for home automation, including light switches or plugs. At present you can arm your system with Google or Echo devices and check on the status (armed or disarmed). That's it.

Yeah, I know, I’m trying to make a suggestion though.  Maybe they will listen to me?  I know others have made the same comment

@Jengiantkiller ​ I too would love to have my nine outside and inside IoT lights turn on when my SS3 is in an alarm state but I don't think it's coming soon for reasons I have posted several times.
