If you’re not a current SimpliSafe customer, you can purchase the SimpliSafe Doorbell Pro as a standalone product for $169.99.

SimpliSafe Doorbell Pro Features

Ability to monitor your front door day or 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.

See & talk to visitors (and scare away intruders)

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.

Get notifications even when nobody rings or knocks

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.
