The Foundation
The Foundation is SimpliSafe’s basic system. The box includes one Base Station, one Keypad, one Entry Sensor, and one Motion Sensor. The SimpliSafe Base Station, which acts as the key component to the whole system, connects to all other SimpliSafe components in your home and uses built-in cellular connectivity to alert emergency services. It also has a built-in 95-decibel siren. You can arm and disarm the Base System locally with Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant, or do so anywhere using the SimpliSafe smartphone app. You can also set up custom alerts for friends and family. The Foundation is sufficient for an apartment with one entry door and no ground floor windows. If you move, you can take all the components with you and add other sensors as needed in a new location. During the Father’s Day sale, you can buy The Foundation for $172 instead of the normal $229 and get the Simplicam for free with a one-month no-cost Interactive Monitoring trial.

Not a Prime member? Use the Amazon Prime trial to shop Prime Day deals for free
amazon government aid prime discount day 7 12

Prime Day, Amazon's annual blowout sale, was delayed this summer due to the coronavirus outbreak, but it's finally coming in mid-October -- less than two months ahead of Black Friday. That gives shoppers two big retail events to enjoy before the Christmas sales arrive, but while Black Friday deals are available to all and sundry, Amazon's official Prime Day sale is for Prime members only. If you're not a Prime member, though, then don't fret, because you can sign up for a 30-day Prime trial to shop this year's Prime Day deals for free.

As Prime Day falls in October this year, it's not a bad idea to start your free 30-day Amazon Prime trial on October 1 so you've got the whole of the month covered. This is the easiest and cheapest way ("cheap" here meaning "free") to shop the 2020 Prime Day deals, but remember that your Prime membership gives you more than access to those exclusive discounts: You also get to enjoy Amazon's impressive streaming library of music, shows, and movies, along with free two-day shipping, a ton of Kindle e-books, and more.
