Expand SimpliSafe to IOT
It appears our friends at Amazon are starting to increase pricing and/or reduce features across their product portfolio. While some are not related to security, one definitely is. Here is a recap:
*For Prime Members, Prime Video is getting ads! Want no adds? Get ready to pony up more coin....
*Free returns are vanishing with fees being imposed. Boo
and, finally, for those with Amazon Echo devices, Amazon Guard is being phased out, including the free features and being replaced with Amazon Emergancy, starting at $5.99 a month.
All in all, not happy with any of this and, for the first time since 2002, questioning my yearly ever increasing expenditure to be a prime member.
Simplisafe: the above should be considered a marketing opportunity that Simplisafe can monetize. Create and sell YOUR gateway that can turn on my IoT devices to light up my house like a Christmas tree in an alarm state. Either add value to the most expensive Gucci plan and have more customers sign up for it, or, charge an additonal fee.
Others, what do you think? Simplisafe, what do you think?
