One of the best things about SimpliSafe is that it's a completely configurable system, with five packages available. On the high end there's the Haven package $489. 86, which comes with 14 hardware components including the base station, a wireless keypad, a keychain remote, two motion sensors, four door/window entry sensors, a panic button, a 105 decibel siren, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, water and freeze sensors, and a SimpliSafe yard sign and window decals. The least expensive Foundation pack $229. 96, which is designed for small homes and focuses solely on basic home security, includes the base station, a wireless keypad, one motion sensor, one entry sensor, and the yard sign and decals. If you want to add one or more SimpliCam security cameras the system supports up to four, they're $99 each. And the Video Doorbell Pro is an integrated 1080p smart doorbell with camera that you can add for $169. Currently, SimpliSafe doesn't offer any packages that include cameras or the doorbell. they're add ons. Setup requires placing the base station in a central location within 400 feet of your sensors and 100 feet of your keypads, and plugging in the included power cord. The new base station integrates a 802.
