SlickDeals has brought me so much joy over the years that I wanted to share a pretty awesome deal that I stumbled upon.
For anyone that currently has a SimpliSafe Security System (older generation model) and you've been bummed like I was that the new system is so much more aesthetically pleasing - you can upgrade FOR FREE. The new model is the SSCS3.
So here's the catch. The water sensor is no longer supported by the older generation SimpliSafe systems. And given how important of a component that is, any customers hoping to buy a water sensor can no longer avail themselves of their older gen model.
So all you need to do is call SimpliSafe and tell them that you purchased a new water sensor and you can't add it. The new water sensors have an 8 digit ID. The old gen SimpliSafe system only lets you put in 5 digits. So you can't add it.
The rep will offer you a free upgrade on ALL of your system components!! I didn't even ask for it. It seems like its just a standard thing that they are doing. I've tested this 3 times. 100% success. Never once did I have to ask them for the upgrade. They just offered it right away.
** And for anyone wondering, my system was purchased in 2017! So its beyond the 3 year warranty. No issue at all.
** Also I do NOT pay for active monitoring, and that wasn't an issue either.
: For anyone that wants to be SUPER SLICK, you could also purchase used gen 1/2 components on the cheap and get those replaced with brand new gen 3 components.
: Some people have mentioned that the reps advised them to return the new water sensor and get the old one. That's the whole issue! You can't. They don't sell the old one anymore. The only way to do this is to upgrade your system. So please ask them rep how/where you can buy the old one?
