Compare Livewatch to SimpliSafe

SimpliSafe offers few options for customized home security. The company does not sell the most basic elements of a security system, such as video cameras, and it uses just one monitoring station, leaving homeowners unprotected in case of station failure. SimpliSafe locks customers in with its proprietary equipment that can’t be used with another company, whereas LiveWatch’s systems are compatible across monitoring companies in case of relocation or cancellation.
