SimpliSafe Company Overview

Our mission is to help people live safely without introducing any complexity, hassle or annoyance into their lives. For over a century, the alarm industry has been selling out-dated technology at highway-robbery prices. A common practice has been to scare customers into signing long-term contracts that are packed with fine print and provisos.

SimpliSafe was designed by our founder, Chad Laurans, with this principle in mind: Being Safe Should Be Simple. So he designed a system that is ridiculously easy to self-install, easy to purchase direct from us online, and doesn’t require a contract or a telephone line. SimpliSafe is ushering in a new era — one where anyone anywhere can have a security system that’s not only simple, but also on the cutting edge. Listen to Chad Laurans's interview on The VentureFizz Podcast to hear more on SimpliSafe's founding!

In 2018, SimpliSafe partnered with private equity fund Hellman & Friedman. SimpliSafe has grown very quickly in recent years, having served over two million customers across the U.S. Through this expansion, we have retained our small company ethos -- no-ego, hard-working collaborative teams tackling challenging problems and making people’s lives safer.
