SimpliSafe introduces Video Doorbell Pro
SimpliSafe, a popular DIY home security system, has announced the SimpliSafe Video Doorbell Pro, which can either serve as a standalone device or part of the integrated security system, connecting with other cameras.

From the tech or outlook design perspective, the SimpliSafe Video Doorbell Pro is pretty similar to Nest’s Hello doorbell and the Amazon-owned Ring Video Doorbell Pro.

The SimpliSafe Video Doorbell Pro features a 1080p camera with 162-degree field of view, infrared night vision and HDR imaging, which allows the camera to adjust the footage under extremely bright conditions like direct sunlight. It’s designed to replace a wired doorbell ranging from 8V to 24V.

One feature that the SimpliSafe Video Doorbell Pro has to differentiate itself from its competitors, is its dual-sensor motion trigger. Two different sensors operate in parallel inside the device - a passive infrared (PIR) sensor which detects human heat signature, and an image classification sensor that identifies a human form. The two work together to more accurately differentiate a visitor or intruder from a pet or a biker passing by.

Users may get one or more cameras. Users who have just one camera will need to pay a US$5 monthly subscription fee for video cloud storage, and those who have multiple cameras will need to pay US$10 per month.
 
SimpliSafe has been actively renewing its smart home offerings this year. It gave its home security system a re-design at the beginning of the year, offered compatibility with the August Smart Lock, and announced support for Alexa and Google Assistant.
 
The company also announced plans in June to bring its smart home platform into Canada and UK.
 
The SimpliSafe Video Doorbell Pro is now available for US$169, online and in Best Buy.
