Applause to Simplisafe......

Last week I saw a recent filing from Simplisafe to the FCC for a motion sensor. I thought it odd as the diagram and label of the sensor looked the same as the current SS3 one being sold since day 1. They are small, work well, batteries last a long time, I wondered what was different.  Unfortunately but understandably, Simplisafe does request confidentiality for many of the documents with the filing but some are available to the public.  Today, out of curiosity, I went to the page again and I believe I found the difference what caused the necessity for the new filing.  The label shows the unit being manufactured in Thailand, whereas I believe the earlier sensor was made in China.  Given the political and economic instability with trade with China, and of course the negative impact on logistics, I applaud Simplisafe if this is the case and diversifying it's product sourcing.  Now if only they could find to make something in the USA. :-)

Securing and improving their logistic channels is important to SS and, in turn, us customers.  SS, feel free to confirm my speculation, and if correct, take a bow.
