Freezer Alarm

I'm not the first to suggest it, but I think it's a topic worth repeating: My SimpliSafe system would be of considerably higher value with a freezer alarm.  My limited research shows that freezer alarms fall into two categories.  The first are the manual ones that simply emit a noise/light response when the freezer is failing, which is fine if you're there when it fails, but completely useless if you're not.  The second category includes those that send you a text/email when the freezer fails, which has the disadvantage of requiring a monthly/yearly subscription.  

The solution is obviously SimpliSafe, as the company already has access to a system of remote notifications and has me paying a recurring subscription fee.  I don't want to re-purpose the SimpliSafe Temperature Sensor as a makeshift freezer alarm, as others have suggested.  I want a dedicated freezer alarm integrated into my SimpliSafe system.  This could not be that difficult, and I expect that it would give SimpliSafe as a company an advantage in marketing over companies like ADT who do not appear to have a freezer alarm as of yet.

I am open to suggestions, but I believe SimpliSafe would be much better off with a freezer alarm as part of their lineup.

Actually, the new SS3 temperature sensor could do the job very easily, if they allowed selecting only an upper temperature alarm.  I have tried using it as a freezer alarm and it actually worked very well most of the time.  Except my freezer dips below zero on occasion, and zero is the lowest you can set the lower alarm to, thus providing unacceptable false alarms.  

A shame, I would have bought 5 of them for all the freezers in the house and motorhome.

A shame, I would have bought 5 of them for all the freezers in the house and motorhome and might actually have activated my SS3 system. Without that benefit, my SS2 system already installed works perfectly fine, so not a lot of incentive to tear it out and risk the SS3 system not being as annoyance free.
