Simplisafe 'All New' Generation 3 Tested

By: Brian Rhodes, Published on Feb 08, 2018

Feared by the traditional alarm industry, Simplisafe has launched its 'all new' Generation 3 platform that they declare is "Stronger. Faster. Safer.":

doubling-down on SimpliSafe’s core mission from day one: to make the best home protection possible available at a price that is radically fair. There is nothing else like it.

Undoubtedly, Simplisafe has become a significant factor in the market and, as a leading financial advisor declared Simplisafe is 'Blowing The Doors Off' financially.

But how good is Generation 3? Simplisafe technology has come under attack for its quality relative to traditional platforms, from traditional players.

To find out, we bought and tested Simplisafe's newest Generation 3 platform to see how it compares to the previous generation of Simplisafe, commercial brands like 2Gig, Honeywell, and even other DIY systems like Nest Secure.

Inside, our test results explain:

  • Key Tested Positives & Negatives 
  • The Biggest Difference Between Gen 3 and Previous Releases
  • The Redesigned Keypad & Sensors
  • Simplisafe's App Controls
  • System Pricing Compared To Incumbents
  • UL Listing Issues Impact
  • Whether Simplisafe Gen 3 is Disruptive
