Home security can be intimidating, but SimpliSafe makes DIY security pretty easy. You can set up the system in just a few minutes: The base Foundation package includes a base station, keypad, entry sensor and motion sensor. Because SimpliSafe uses a cellular connection, it will continue to work if the Wi-Fi goes out, and the battery works for 24 hours if the power goes out. At $14.99, the 24/7 monthly service is reasonable, and a separate $99 SimpliCam helps you keep an eye on your home and family, and alerts you when it picks up motion alerts.
