SimpliSafe Fraudulent Claims. Jeff Zwirn is an independant forensic analyst and well regarded expert in the industry who demonstrates where alarm systems, devices, hardware or installation fail in a court room. Zwirn recently purchased a SimpliSafe system in order to forensically investigate and technically quantify if the representations of SimpliSafe offering an “advanced home security system” were factual, he was unpleasantly surprised. It turns out that SimpliSafe has been making claims that their product meets certain standards of safety as set by Underwriters Laboratories and National Fire Protection Association when in truth, it does not.
In the article published in security sales magazine, Zwirn concludes that the SimpliSafe design and equipment does not at all compare to what the professional alarm industry utilizes, is not “advanced”, and does not comport with nationally recognized industry standards and best practices. SimpliSafe’s products should in no way be considered as providing advanced or comprehensive security. Zwirn states
In my opinion, the company’s actions and inactions demonstrate a disregard for its consumers and their families, who rely on SimpliSafe for security and life safety.
The article presents a detailed and thorough forensic investigation that tests SimpliSafe’s claims about its products, compared to professional alarm contractors and the products that the alarm industry offers to the public. Zwirn discovered that SimpliSafe is fraudulently misrepresenting nearly all of their products and services. He goes on to comment that
SimpliSafe should take responsibility and address the aforementioned serious defects and irregularities, many of which the average consumer would not be aware of yet incur the potential negative outcomes as a consequence.
