I have some rental properties and I’m looking for a cheap and easy home security solution. I don’t need professional monitoring, but I would like to get text message alerts. The problem is that some of the houses don’t have internet – especially ones that are vacant. Will SimpliSafe work for me?
You do not need a WiFi connection for your SimpliSafe system to work. If you would like to receive text message alerts, you will have to pay for a monthly monitoring plan (either the Interactive or Alert package – the Standard package does not include text message alerts). If you don’t want a monthly fee, the SimpliSafe system will work as a local alarm (basically will set the siren off at the property), but you won’t get text message alerts.
