Thanks for sharing. In fairness to Simplisafe, many wireless alarm systems are vulnerable in the same way, and as demonstrated in the video the system has 'RF Jam Detection' that at least sporadically works on the low powered SDC fob. A higher-powered jammer (e.g.: the 5 Watt unit) trips the alert every time.

The low power demo in this video is beneath the threshold to detect every time, but it also may not be powerful enough to jam the base station/ sensors through a door. Notice in the video he does this from inches away and not on an installed contact through a door.

I wonder what the churn rate is , I bet high.

Plus how many times their system failed to detect a burglar. False alarm rate is so bad the PD in many places will not respond.

you get what you pay for
