SimpliSafe has made a large marketing push with their do-it-yourself no-contract cellular/GSM based system. Targeting the big players, ADT, Frontpoint and Vivint, SimpliSafe offers a straightforward DIY install and upfront costs system costs instead of a contract.
One pro of SimpliSafe is that it is really "simple" to understand their pricing model, nothing is hidden. But that doesn't mean everything is perfect with their system.

SimpliSafe is a solid mid-priced system with competitive pricing and basic DIY features. It is not the "magic potion" as they advertise, and does have many short comings. Specifically the lack of hardwired device integration, and the lack of UL listed Smoke and CO detectors. Prices are lower than Frontpoint, ADT or Vivint, but monitoring is far higher than many DIY systems.
