What We Like

What We Don't Like

  • No smart home integration: SimpliSafe doesn’t have any smart home integrations with its video doorbell, sadly. As proud owners of more than our fair share of smart home devices, we were pretty disappointed with this missing feature. In 2020, smart home devices reached $4.3 billion in sales. That tells us that there is definitely a high demand for products that work with voice assistants; we hope SimpliSafe can update this in the future.
  • Hardwiring required: Bad news for renters: hardwiring is the only option when setting up the SimpliSafe Video Doorbell Pro. On the bright side, installation is completely DIY and doesn’t require a professional technician, though that is an option for a fee of $79. In addition, an existing doorbell is required to set up the SimpliSafe Video Doorbell Pro, so it may not work for all homes.

Bottom Line

Like the rest of their security system, SimpliSafe impressed us when it came to their Video Doorbell Pro. Our favorite features? The camera's 1080p HD video, 162-degree field of view and clear infrared night vision, to name a few.
