SimpliSafe DIY Video Camera Promised Soon
For more than 5 years the popular leading provider of DIY home security has been promising a surveillance camera product. Promises made for release of a video camera accessory in September of 2011 on the SimpliSafe community forum proved to be a disappointing ambition.
SimpliSafe Tries DIY Video Camera Again in 2014
A second discussion on the community forum dated as January 2nd 2013, promised a video camera accessory to be added to the SimpliSafe product line up in “Early 2014”. This discussion was tempered with frustration on the part of again disappointed SimpliSafe users. It would appear that there is considerable demand for an easy to use consumer DIY video camera product.
SimpliSafe DIY Video Camera Starts Beta Testing
After more than half a decade the long awaited SimpliSafe DIY Security Camera has started Beta testing in the middle of 2016. Early reports indicate it to be another consumer centered product using WiFi as a transmission medium. We have learned that the beta samples are not rated for exterior use but the final product is yet to be revealed. Because it is a WiFi device and as such draws considerable power the SimpliSafe cameras are powered by a plug in power supply. All in all it would appear as if the short range of the WiFi based communication, the lack of exterior use and the need for a plug in power supply will limit the flexibility of use. There has been no discussion if using the camera will increase the SimpliSafe $25/month fee for app service. Unfortunately SimpliSafe is missing the mark in that there has been no discussion of any video verification feature so there is no promise of Level one response from law enforcement. Simplisafe has indicated that the camera is expected to be ready for market sometime in 2018. Only time will tell.
