SimpliSafe's DIY smart security system is now available in the UK

The best smart security system makes it across the pond

SimpliSafe now available in the UK

SimpliSafe is one of our favorite smart security systems. It's easy to install yourself, and it's even easier to build out the system to match the needs of your home or apartment. But until now it's only been available in the US.

Good news for the Brits: SimpliSafe has finally made the jump across the pond to the UK, and you can build your own system on SimpliSafe's UK site right now. There are also six pre-made bundles that you can choose from, if you're not in the mood to tinker.

The bundles begin with The Starter, a £279 option that gives you the base station, keypad, motion sensor, smart cam and a window/door sensor. The Essentials adds two more window/door sensors for £309, while The Warwick gives you seven window/door sensors and a key fob for £364.

The Windsor will give you a 105dB siren, two motion sensors, five window/door sensors, a smart cam, the base station, keypad and key fob for £454. The Bamburgh will give you three window/door sensors, a key fob, base station, keypad, two motion sensors, a panic button, a glass break sensor, a smart cam and a siren for £504.

If you choose to build your own system, you'll get to choose from a wide array of sensors. These include smoke detectors, freeze sensors, water sensors in addition to the glass, motion and entry sensors. You can also buy sensors individually after the fact, should you need more sensors down the line. All of this is compatible with Google Assistant and Alexa.

SimpliSafe's security plans are also making the jump. While you can use all the hardware without them, the plans do add some helpful features. The £12.99-per-month Pro plan gets you 24/7 monitoring while the £19.99-per-month Pro Premium plan adds smartphone controls, unlimited storage for video, police dispatch if an intruder is detected and text message alerts. Keep in mind that the first three months of either plan are free when you buy any system.
