BOSTON, March 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Wireless home security system SimpliSafe is the latest product to be highlighted on Ask This Old House, the Emmy-nominated series presented by the home improvement experts at This Old House. SimpliSafe was brought in as an easy, inexpensive alternative to costly, disruptive wired alarms. The episode, which is the 18th installment of Season 12 and originally aired on March 6th, can be streamed online here.
After burglars kicked her door down and stole all her jewelry, homeowner Amanda began looking for a home security system that could give her total protection without exorbitant costs. She found the search difficult—"We had some companies come in and give us quotes, but they all wanted to hardwire the house, and they had very high monthly fees as well," Amanda told Ask This Old House host Kevin O'Connor. Luckily, O'Connor had brought along a solution—a SimpliSafe Home Security system. "It's got a lot of different components you can layer on," O'Connor explained while demonstrating entry sensors, motion sensors, smoke and CO detectors, and freeze sensors, among others. Amanda and O'Connor were able to install the system easily—"It was intuitive," said O'Connor—and Amanda was particularly happy with the SimpliSafe smartphone app, which allows you to control your system even when you aren't home.
"I designed this product specifically for homeowners like Amanda," SimpliSafe SEO Chad Laurans said when asked for comment. "No one should ever be stuck deciding between risking a burglary and getting ripped off by the alarm industry. SimpliSafe systems use cutting-edge technology to protect your home, and there's no middlemen and no contracts, so your wallet is protected, too. And as Kevin and Amanda showed, SimpliSafe is so simple to install, you can do it in one montage."
