Can we use the Simplisafe Alarm system in an RV (vs Ring)?

The short answer is no. In fact, before we got our Ring Security System, we purchased a SimpliSafe before we ever got our RV. You can see it in our original RV tour video. The trouble is with monitoring. To have a monitored system, you need a permanent address (for police dispatch and such), which doesn't work when you move all the time. And, the SimpliSafe system is crippled without monitoring. This is from Simplisafe:

“While most of our customers opt for 24/7 Monitoring with either our Standard Monitoring ($14.99/mo) or our Interactive Monitoring ($24.99/mo) plan, you do have the option of monitoring the system yourself for no additional cost. Unfortunately, while self-monitoring your system there are many limitations. Without 24/7 Monitoring you would only be able to Live Stream and receive Push Notifications from the SimpliSafe cameras but not the SimpliSafe system.”

The Ring Security System, however, can be completely self-monitored. We've been using it for a couple of years now, and it's been great! It does require you have internet access.
