As a leader in smart home security, SimpliSafe has unveiled its new service, Live Guard Outdoor Monitoring, to selected customers, heralding a new era in crime prevention and home safety. The service employs a sophisticated mix of AI-driven technology and human expertise, setting a new benchmark for residential security solutions.

Every year, nearly 2 million Americans suffer the consequences of burglary and trespassing, encountering not only financial loss but substantial emotional distress. Traditional home security systems activate only after a breach occurs, often too late to prevent damage or loss. SimpliSafe's innovative solution transforms this paradigm by offering proactive outdoor monitoring to deter potential criminals before they can cause harm.

Live Guard Outdoor Monitoring is engineered to keep a vigilant eye on your property's perimeters. Using cutting-edge artificial intelligence, the system alerts SimpliSafe's monitoring agents when someone approaches, enabling them to intervene before the situation escalates. This could involve anything from issuing a verbal warning via the system's two-way audio to contacting local law enforcement.

Christian Cerda, the CEO of SimpliSafe, emphasized the shift from reactive to proactive security measures. "For decades, the home security industry has remained reactive, jumping into action only when a break-in is already in progress. SimpliSafe has set out to challenge this standard and to offer our customers new, more proactive ways to feel and be safe. Live outdoor monitoring is our latest breakthrough, combining AI and advanced technology with expert monitoring professionals to stop crime before it even happens. This is a true game changer in customer safety."

The system's operational backbone is its AI capabilities, which analyze approaching individuals and compare them against saved profiles set by the homeowner. If an unrecognized individual is detected, SimpliSafe's agents can immediately assess the threat level and respond accordingly.

SimpliSafe is committed to user privacy; customers have full control over camera monitoring and the management of personal data. The service allows users to customize privacy settings, including managing profiles and determining when cameras are active.

It is part of SimpliSafe's Fast Protect Technology suite, which promises the industry's quickest detection and response times. Currently, the service is in the Early Access phase, allowing selected users to experience and provide feedback on the new technology.
