SimpliSafe Cameras Review

Updated by Alexia on

SimpliSafe lives up to its name with easy installation and no contracts, but its indoor cam, outdoor camera, and video doorbell aren’t the best standalone cameras. And these home security cameras don’t have as many smart home features as we would like.

Final word

SimpliSafe may not have many bells and whistles, but its cameras are easy to use and install. If you already have a SimpliSafe home security system, adding on a SimpliCam, SimpliSafe Outdoor Camera, or SimpliSafe Video Doorbell Pro will lend a huge security boost.

If you don’t have a SimpliSafe home security system, we don’t recommend their security cameras. Check out our picks for the best home security cameras of the year to find an awesome camera that fits your needs.
