home security monitoring services
If you want to add one or more SimpliCam security cameras the system supports up to four, they're $99 each. And the Video Doorbell Pro is an integrated 1080p smart doorbell with
camera that you can add for $169. Currently, SimpliSafe doesn't offer any packages that include cameras or the doorbell. they're add ons. Setup requires placing the base station in a central location within 400 feet of your sensors and 100 feet of your keypads, and plugging in the included power cord. The new base station integrates a 802. 11n 2. 4GHz Wi Fi radio, adding another layer of connectivity with SimpliSafe's monitoring service. The Wi Fi is a boon for those living in rural areas who wouldn't be able to use the monitoring service because of patchy cellular coverage. If you're concerned about IoT threats, you don't have to connect SimpliSafe to your Wi Fi network, the monitoring works just fine without
it, though you won't receive firmware updates. Inside the base, there's a siren, a backup battery the company claims will last up to 24 hours, and a SIM card for cellular communication.
