To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I tested this and my teeth hurt it was so loud. I expected it to be louder than the base unit but more than expected. You can barely stand being in the same room when this goes off. This is great to sue away intruders.
Beware that the SimpliSafe system is faulty and can stop working at anytime for no reason. The base station just stopped working, so I was NOT secure. This is horrible for something like this to happen with a security system - nothing secure about that. After hours and hours on the phone with the company they state that this "happens once in a while". It is for this reason, I do not need an additional siren. I would NOT purchase any products from SimpliSafe.
It does make a lot of noise, exactly what I want it to do. I've thought about getting several more so if my home is broken into, the volume just may cause intense pain in the ears of the intruder. This was super easy to install into the network and new generation of SimpliSafe security system.
Love the SimpliSafe products and the service provided by those folks
I tested this and my teeth hurt it was so loud. AM going to purchase another to mount outside under front porch. I expected it to be louder than the base unit of the Simpli Safe but WOW! You can barely stand being in the same room when this goes off. Great for a heavy sleeper like me! HIGHLY recommend these for your Simpli Safe system.
this add on device is working good at 150ft so far as remote siren inside an outbuilding. I have not had a chance yet to determine my permanent mounting spot. So I'm slowly moving the siren device to determine & map full remote range. I will update when finished with map range measures. so far very good results.
SIMPLISAFE WARNS YOU THAT THIS IS VERY LOUD, AND IT IS. MUCH LOUDER THAN THE ALARM IN THE BASE STATION. AND, AS WITH ALL SIMPLISAFE PRODUCTS, IT IS FAST AND EASY TO INSTALL. BUT AFTER TESTING IT AND HEARING HOW LOUD IT IS, I HAVE TO WONDER, CAN I STILL HAVE BABIES?
I wasn’t impressed with the siren on the base station. So I ordered this. All I can say is this is freaking LOUD! I mean it’s so loud you can’t even hear the base station siren when they are going off together. Easily the best purchase you can make for your SimpliSafe. Just be careful. The warning is real. It will definitely cause hearing loss if you are around it to close. (Note: I play Xbox with a headset and I can’t hear anything or anyone with my headset on. My wife used to get upset that I wouldn’t hear anyone breaking into the house. But with this siren I can easily hear it, even with my headset on full blast!)
I was not aware that Simplisafe has two very similar alarm systems. unfortunately I DID NOT FIND THIS OUT UNTIL AFTER I HAD INSTALLED TO NEW COMPONENTS AND THEY DID NOT WORK WITH MY ORIGINAL SYSTEM. BUYER BEWARE!
