Ring is cheaper for paid monitoring.

Ring allows you to set alarm by remote for free.

Ring also allows you to self-monitor for free if you wish. SimpliSafe is just a local noise maker unless you pay for some monitoring.

I have simplisafe and I have nothing but good things to say and not sure what kind of idiot would spend $250+ and not get the monitoring
I think most people would generally consider it better to have the option than not though, correct? Maybe money gets tight for a while and you want to self-monitor. And based on ECartman's comments, assuming ring is an equally quality/priced product otherwise (I've got no opinion on that myself) wouldn't you be an "idiot" to pay more for something that has fewer options?

SimpliSafe is a great product. Working amazing. But as one said here, without paying monthly monitoring fee, the system is no more than a 'stupid' alarm. Any 'remote' service will cost you more. With that been said —- ring do the same thing. If you want the all around service u need to pay.

Btw — American Express has a promotion if buying simplisafe at $400 would get you $100 back.

I have both SimpliSafe and Ring installed side by side, and have for over a year. Ring gives me full "remote" control of my system for free. You don't need to pay the $10/mo for professional monitoring. SimpliSafe gives ZERO remove control for free, you must have the $25/mo for monitoring & remote control. The SimpliSafe $15/mo plan is only for professional monitoring. Being able to arm and disarm the system remotely is imperative.

I self monitor for multiple reasons:

First, the alert goes to several people in my family, all who can call the police if needed. Why wait for a monitoring service to call me?

Second, before we call the police, we access the various web cams and security cams to see if there is a problem. If we were to ever see a break in on the cams, we would then call police. So far it has only been (knock on wood) false alarms.

Third, in my city, if the police even respond to a professional monitored alarm, they charge $200. It is a low priority for them due to the overwhelming number of false alarms they get. However, if I call them and say I see someone in my house, they have assured me they will prioritize that response. No response vs. an actual response from the police is huge. No false alarm fees. And professional monitoring simply slows that process down.

Fourth, if I am out of town away from cell service and cannot self monitor, and no one in my family can, I can always pay for one month of monitoring from either Simplisafe or Ring ... and again Ring is much cheaper. Neither requires a contract.

I have even rigged up a siren sensor and phone dialer (using a free cell phone plan, thanks Sprint) on the SimpliSafe system ... so I can self monitor that baby too (and works for fire and smoke alarms).

Both systems are functionally equivalent. Ring is much much cheaper to operate and provides more flexibility.

I am paying $25 for Simplisafe because it uses cellular signal rather than Internet connection like Ring.. Am I dumb??

With Smartthings, one can control your home security by themself. I additionally have Blink and the setup is seamless. Smartthings also have a paid monitoring solution, but I haven't tried that one yet.

Wish smartthings v2/accessories didn't have battery drain issue and wonky WiFi issues if WiFi goes down...
