If you are a subscriber to the Interactive Monitoring plan and still find yourself unable to manage your SimpliSafe Original system’s settings from your smartphone or tablet, the most common cause is a poor cellular connection on your Base Station. Generally, resetting the Base Station in order to establish a fresh cellular connection will correct the issue. Here’s how to reset your Base Station:
- Remove the power adapter.
- Using a Phillips-head screwdriver, remove the screw holding the battery cover in place, and then remove the battery cover.
- Remove one of the batteries from the Base Station and wait for about 10-15 seconds.
- Plug the power adapter into your Base Station - the power adapter should always be inserted again before the battery.
- Reinsert the battery.
- Close the battery compartment and use the screwdriver to reseal it.
- Wait 1-2 minutes for a fresh connection to be established, and then try accessing your system’s settings from the SimpliSafe App again.
