Such is the promise on the packaging of SimpliSafe, and though the reality is there are 21 pages of setup manual you might want to refer to, for the most part SimpliSafe comes through on that promise. A big part of that reason is that SimpliSafe is entirely self-contained. There is no app to install, because the system doesn't support one unless you sign up for a monitoring service. And while you can (and should) connect the system to Wi-Fi, you don't have to, as SimpliSafe includes a built-in cellular radio. There are pros and cons to this concept.
