App is difficult to use if you have it on more than one device

I love SimpliSafe, had it for years. I recently got the camera doorbell and indoor security camera. It’s pretty good, but could be better. It is especially frustrating that you can’t stay logged in on multiple devices to view the live video stream. I have two devices I use it on and my mom has one, so that is 3 total and we’re continually kicking each other off. How it seems to work is when you log on on one device it logs off the previous device. I’m not sure if this is a glitch or supposed to work like that because there does seem to be some variation.... but whatever it is it’s very frustrating. So say, I’m using my phone and someone rings the doorbell, but I was last logged in on my iPad, it sends the notification to my phone (which is good) but when I open the app I have to type the email and password in before I can see who’s at the door. I’d like to add the app can be quite slow while doing this so the person at the door may have given up and walked away before I even get logged on to see who it is. I hope someone reads this and can fix this. Other than that I love SimpliSafe in general, just the app could be a bit better (and faster).

So far so good

Just invested in SimpliSafe about a week ago. So far, everything is great. The app itself runs smoothly (on iPhone X) and I can arm/disarm my system remotely, check my cameras, and get text notifications when my tenants arm the system. The app UI can of course improve, it looks like the developers are a bit confused of what they want to do with it. The Dashboard could have more information and the Timeline could use a revamp in appearance. But the important thing is everything is functional and I haven't had a hiccup yet (knock on wood). **Make sure if you're new to SS to go through all the App settings right away, there was a ton of settings I changed that SS didn't really mention in setup. That's the only thing I'd recommend for SS - the set up is easy and painless but maybe include a tutorial overview of the system/settings (perhaps a link on the setup manual that comes in the box).

I also called in to customer support and spoke to a live agent fairly quickly - the gentleman was very helpful.

Easy Install

I am a 65 year old female who lives alone except for my dog. She only weighs 12 pounds so I couldn’t put much stock in her ability to stop a break in. I ordered the SimpliSafe system with 4 entry sensors, 2 motion sensors, and added the camera. Installation was not difficult and I was able to have the entire system installed and up and running in a relatively short period of time. I had a minor amount of difficulty getting the camera online but the support staff were exceptionally helpful.

This system has given me a tremendous feeling of security. I can easily set it to on/home at night and rest easy knowing that my home is secure. When I am away I can fully arm the system and be confident that my small dog is not going to trigger the system.

If you are looking for an affordable and easy to install system, look no further. With the 24/7 monitoring I know that I am much safer. I particularly like the ability to arm, disarm, or get a live camera view of my living room by using the SimpliSafe app on my phone.
