Transfer system to new owner

Hi!

I am in the process of selling my house, and left the Simplisafe system there for the new owner.  How do I get them to take it over officially?  I didn't have active monitoring, if that matters.  Thanks!

@rebeccarice you can call SS support and they will walk you through the process.

Simplisafe,   this post has come up dozens of times in the forums, yet:

1. Its still not in the new Hellp Center
2. You can't search previous answers in the forum as there is no search tool
3. You can't use a Google Site Search because it won't work anymore until SS fixes it (week 2, btw)
and 4, yes I want a response on this that its going to be addressed in the new help center.

And, course, If I am wrong on any of these points, I will promptly apologize.

I am pleading with senior managment to finally address this and many other issues posted in the forums.

Thank you.

HI rebeccarice,

You only need to take care of a couple of things:
  • Your Monitoring Service should be canceled, and if your Base Station is currently connected to the SimpliSafe app, that should be disconnected too.
  • Remove any cameras from the app, by going into the Camera Settings page for each camera, and hitting the Delete button at the bottom.

Once the above is complete, the system will be free to set up on a new account. The new owners can create their own separate account by heading to SimplliSafe.com.

@Captain,

The info is already covered in this article.

@Johnny M I am a man of my word, and do apologize for saying there was not an article in the help center covering this topic. Now on to the required search terms.

I entered "sellig base to new owner", "selling system to new owner", "transfering ownership of system" and did not come up with this article. Do suggest some additonal key words be updated to the index. BTW, what search would have brought this article up for turue reference? Thanks

Hi Captain,

We're a little ahead of you on that too! I made a request from our Support team (who handle Help Center updates) to add a few more keywords to the article. So when you search for "selling" or "transfer", that pops up the same article.

The same team has been hard at work on overhauling the Help Center for the past few months. So little improvements like this will keep coming over time.
