SimpliSafe has a smart lock coming

The new smart lock launches next month.


DIY home security company SimpliSafe has confirmed it has a smart lock on the horizon after reports leaked the news Tuesday. The addition to its stable of smart home security could be launched in the fall, a report from Dave Zatz that included a picture of the upcoming device revealed earlier. 

It’ll be available to buy on SimpliSafe’s website from Sept. 15 for $99, and from Best Buy on Oct. 13.

For now, SimpliSafe packages include a base station, and motion detectors and sensors can be added to the system at extra cost. They include entry sensors, motion sensors, glass break sensors, the SimpliCam, a panic button, smoke detectors, freeze detectors and leak detectors.

Other add-ons include a keypad, key fob, siren and yard sign.

There’s no monthly fee if all you want is a localized alarm that sounds a siren if there’s a break-in. Adding professional live monitoring costs an additional $15 a month, and being able to monitor the system from your phone using the SimpliSafe app costs $25 a month.
