SimpliSafe Home Security Ranks No. 119 on the 2014 Inc. 5000 list

Home Security Company, SimpliSafe, ranked as the 119th fastest growing company in the United States by Inc. magazine.

NEW YORK, Aug. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- SimpliSafe Home Security was ranked no. 119 on the 2014 Inc. 5000 list of America's fastest growing companies. SimpliSafe's innovative alarm systems and customer-friendly business model has propelled 3,076% growth over the last three years.  Companies previously holding positions in the 500 include GoPro, Facebook and Zappos.

Safety for your home and family is a universal and fundamental value, but problems with the traditional industry have kept it out of reach for many people.  SimpliSafe is taking home security into the 21st century using mobile technology, user-friendly design, and — at last! — a smart business model that puts customers first. SimpliSafe is ushering in a new era — one where anyone, anywhere can afford to have a mobile, interconnected smart security system.

SimpliSafe sells their home security systems and 24/7 professional alarm monitoring services direct-to-consumer online.  Having cut out the middlemen, SimpliSafe is able to offer home security at dramatically lower costs and without the long-term contracts found in the traditional alarm industry.

SimpliSafe designs and engineers home security systems that are wireless, cellular, user-friendly, and can be set up by anyone in minutes.  Integrated apps allow comprehensive, instantaneous system control from anywhere in the world.  The company's constantly expanding arsenal of sensors — from smoke detectors to temperature monitors to glassbreak sensors — provide all-encompassing protection.

Recently, SimpliSafe partnered with venture capital firm Sequoia and raised $57 million dollars to continue bringing peace of mind to the masses.

"We're honored to be a part of the Inc. 500. We're proud of our growth, and plan to continue offering innovative smart security solutions to customers at an incredible value," commented SimpliSafe CEO Chad Laurans.
