Boston-based SimpliSafe began selling its smart home security system in the U.K. on April 2, 2019.
Despite an overall decrease in overall crime rates for several decades, burglary rates have increased during the same period, according to the U.K. Office for National Statistics.
Only 13 percent of U.K. households currently have professionally monitored home security systems with police dispatch, according to a SimpliSafe survey.
As in the U.S., SimpliSafe customers can purchase pre-configured security systems or build a custom component combination directly on the company website.
All systems include a 60-day money-back guarantee plus free shipping and returns.
The Starter, for example, include a base unit, a keypad, one entryway contact sensor, a motion detector, and a SimpliCam indoor HD video camera with an integrated motion detector for £279.
