Simplisafe - new competitor - please read

In the UK there is a new firm just launching and they already have a full page on their site destroying simplisafe v what they offer.

Taking most of it with a pinch of salt there is 2 areas they are pushing hard on.

"Our police dispatch is when 2 sensors are triggered in your house v simplisafe that require visual verification from cameras that need wifi to be on"

Now why cant simplisafe have that?
I would prefer 2 sensor triggers OR visual. Would give me more peace of mind.

Bell box

Where are we in production for this. About a year ago it was the most requested item . I'm aware of pandemic happening but the competition now have one ready for launch. Are we any further forward on the siren with the strobe....

Um, are those things available now?  If you can't buy it now, you should be prepared for it to never be available, or not be as described now.

Yeah there not available now. That's just my point  when they arrived in  UK they forgot about the bell box that EVERY alarm system offers. My 8 year old would tell you thats the first thing needed my point just being SS should have this if EVERY other system does but the main point is the police dispatch my suggestion is it moves to 2 sensor triggers as if your wifi is off then police ain't coming

They do have the external siren, which is rated for outdoor use.  Would that serve?

what happens if you do not purchase a camera when you bought the system and you have the 2 alarm triggers in place and the single burglar enters and exits threw the same window/door? You loose all your stuff! That;s what happens. :-)

Unless you have motion sensors or other interior triggers (technical term is "layered security")
