You won’t have to get up and peep through your blinds – or even be home at all – to see who’s knocking at your door with the SimpliSafe Doorbell Pro. If you’re not a current SimpliSafe customer, you can purchase the SimpliSafe Doorbell Pro as a standalone product for $169.99. For access to video recording, you have two options: you can purchase a SimpliSafe home security system and choose either the Interactive or Pro Superior monitoring plans that range from $14.99/mo. – $24.90/mo., or purchase a SimpliSafe camera subscription from $4.99/mo. – $9.99/mo. With either option, you’ll have access to your recordings for up to 30 days. During that period, you can choose to download any footage you’d like to save or share.

  • Monitor Day & Night

    With the SimpliSafe mobile app, you can check in on your front door during the day or night. The SimpliSafe Doorbell Pro is designed with a 162° field of vision and night vision that allows you to see footage even in low-light conditions.

  • Two-Way Video & Audio

    One of this doorbell camera’s greatest features is the ability to not only see but also communicate with your visitors. Using the SimpliSafe app, you can speak with a delivery person if you’re away from home and even warn an intruder no matter where you are.

  • Automatic Notifications

    When a visitor doesn’t ring or knock, you’ll still be notified with mobile alerts so you can view the feed and see what’s happening yourself. With advanced motion sensing capabilities, this device picks up on any activity nearby. Dual-sensor design helps to ensure you only get notifications for things that matter, like whenever a person is on the doorstep, rather than a car passing by in the street.
