The benefit of this individual sensoring within the entire system is that you can know, within a few seconds, the exact sensor that was triggered and be able to respond effectively. The DIY SABRE wireless burglar alarm security system will definitely get your attention should the need arise, with its very loud 120 decibels alarms to wake up and/or alert you of a break in. The sound alone helps to deter the intruder, as it is loud enough to even wake up neighbors up to 750 feet away. This DIY home security system is customizable, with its smart panel with LCD display, motion sensor with directional mounting bracket, door/window sensors, and a key fob remote control to help identify the point of entry more accurately from the eight distinct zones. This all white security system is designed with aesthetics in mind and actually looks stylish and modern in the home. Even more importantly, however, is SABRE system’s user friendly properties and features.

Unlike the competition, SimpliSafe uses a cellular connection for its primary connection, something that other systems only use as a backup.

SimpliSafe's three year warranty is the best among DIY security systems, with most competitors only offering one year of coverage. If you want to control your SimpliSafe system with a smartphone, you can expect to pay about $25 a month, which is higher than average. This is disappointing considering SimpliSafe's smartphone app only offers limited functionality due to the fact you can't use the system with many smart home devices.
