What We Like

What We Don't Like

  • Local storage options: The SimpliSafe Outdoor Camera doesn’t have any storage options, so we had to pay if we wanted to save video clips.
  • Facial recognition capabilities: Facial recognition is fast becoming the hottest feature in security cameras, but SimpliSafe hasn’t yet gotten on board.
  • Reliability in climates over 113 degrees: It doesn’t usually get up to over 113 degrees here in Brooklyn, but that’s not true for everywhere in the world.

Bottom Line

The SimpliSafe Outdoor Camera is an important new addition to the SimpliSafe family of products: a true outdoor camera with 1080p HD resolution, color night vision, an IP65 weather rating, and a built-in siren. While we’d love to have local storage options, SimpliSafe does make its cloud storage options affordable.
