GetSafe: DIY Home Security Monitoring!

Hi Everyone!

I hope you all have plans for a fun and exciting weekend. My weekend is going to to be spent away from home at a Bachelorette party. I love traveling or being out and about constantly, and that is why I’m excited to talk about GetSafe today. When they reached out to me and asked if I’d like to try their home security system, I jumped on the opportunity immediately. It brings me a sense of peace while I’m away from home (especially when the whole internet knows I’m gone)

What I really love about GetSafe is that it’s not overwhelming. There is no weird tools required or anyone coming over to install it. I could do it all by myself 🙂 GetSafe: Home Security SystemThe box arrived in the cutest packaging. I wasn’t expecting a security system to arrive so elegantly. There was also a really kind note from the GetSafe team that I appreciated. Make sure you don’t throw away the beautiful packaging because you can reuse it if you move into a new place. img_6546The GetSafe system provides you with all the batteries and cords. There is nothing worse than taking a break from setting something up because you have to drive to the store and buy extra pieces (it’s the small things.)

All of the sensors and motion detectors have sticky tape on the back, so I didn’t have to drill any holes or damage the walls while installing.GetSafe: Home Security SystemI admit, I’m not good at putting things together. I usually give up after ten minutes, or make someone else do it. These were the easiest and most accurate directions I have ever had to follow. There weren’t 100 installation steps  and the directions were very clear. img_7780-1024x660-2I was done installing my GetSafe security system in 20 minutes. I actually made a cup of coffee because I figured it would be an hour or two. There are only four steps and everything was up and running before I headed out on my road trip.

I have the super affordable starter kit, but you can go all out and add all kinds of extra gear to make every inch of your house secure. I want to get the cameras (mainly to watch my dog when I leave!) My kit comes with the hub, entry sensors, a motion detector, and the siren, which is perfect for an apartment.

I love that I can keep an eye on my place while I’m away with the GetSafe app. I can arm and disarm at anytime. If my internet ever goes out, AT&T 3g cellular backup is installed on every system! Don’t worry, you do not have to be an AT&T subscriber. img_4152-1024x768-2I love the warning stickers too. I feel like an intruder will look at those and automatically turn right around. I put them on all my outside doors. I love that there is always someone watching out for me, even when I’m not there. If there is a problem, they’ll let me know. If I don’t respond, they’ll contact my emergency contacts or authorities. It’s whatever you choose for your emergency settings. Even if your devices are tampered with, you’ll get a notification on your app. If you aren’t happy with your GetSafe, you can quit at anytime. Most traditional companies lock you in for 3-5 years. GetSafe: Home Security SystemThe GetSafe support team is SUPER nice and helpful. I called them to make sure everything was up and running (because I thought it was too easy to install) and they confirmed everything and walked me through some steps. They were so friendly.

If you are living alone, travel a lot, or want to feel safe and protected, I highly recommend trying out the GetSafe security system! I’m excited to watching over my app all weekend while I’m out!

    Great post!

    I leave my teenagers at home while I’m at work after school and I’d love to keep an eye on them!

    My security system right now is very expensive and does not have cameras.

    Your blog is great. I love when you introduce me to new products like this. I just recently moved into a new place and get kind of scared at night so maybe I should ask my dad about this!

    Have you ever used a security system?
    No. I want one!

    Do you travel or spend a lot of time away from home?
    Just away during the day

    What are your thoughts on the GetSafe security system!
    I am very excited to look into it! Looks easy like you said.

    I don’t travel as much as I would like, but it’s nice to know that when I’m home alone or out somewhere that my home is safe. I’ve been wanting a security system but didn’t think I’d be able to have one since I’m in an apt. Is it easy to move around? I want to be sure I can use it in homes to come 🙂

    I really want to try this, it sounds perfect for me! Thanks for the tip!

    That looks like something perfect for me, as I am always leaving to go on a trip on a whim! You say it doesn’t lock you in to a 3-5 year price, but you didn’t mention any additional fees, beyond the starter kit. Is it a monthly/yearly fee? Can you just buy the starter kit, and never pay anything else? Thanks!

    I’ve used ADT in the past and when I moved, the equipment had to stay at my old place so it’s sounds like GetSafe has some definite advantages! Currently I use ACOM but I’m going to look in to GetSafe to see if it can suit my needs better! I love to travel and I have a tendency to get in moods where I just have to get out of the house! I also work nights on a consistent schedule which could make my place vulnerable to break ins! I wander what Mr. Grumples likes to do when you’re not around! I imagine he lives it up like The Secret Life of Pets! Have a good trip! Don’t party too hard!

      Hey girl!

      That is definitely a bummer, but the great thing about GetSafe! Sounds like you’re the perfect candidate for a system for sure!! Glad you’re on top of your safety!

      I had a camera on him one time and all he did was sit on the couch, by the door and on my bed. MADE MESAD!!!

      If he did have a crazy life while I’m out, I’d love that haha.

      Thanks so much!

    Wow! How cool is that.

    I have never used a home security system before, but I’d love to try this out. I live all alone and it can get kind of scary!

    Yes! I am a traveling nurse.

    I love how easy it is to set up.
