      I have had this camera installed for about a two weeks and I am not thrilled with it. First let’s discuss the cost, the camera will set you back $99.00 you might be able to find it on sale at a big box store. Once installed EACH camera will come with a 30 day free monitoring after that it will cost $4.00 for each camera. For what you truly get its way overpriced at best it should be a $20 camera because of the lack of simple features discussed below. Set-up- setting up this camera was very simple and took me less than 10 min. Simple. Video- it’s the most important thing isn’t it? Video quality is good however this camera has horrible camera lag, you can walk in front of it, and watch your phone you won’t see the action, go make dinner, have a drink, have desert, see a movie, look at your phone again and maybe by now it will show you walking in front of it (ok not that long but close) the lag is not acceptable! I have high speed internet in my house ( 50mps) I thought maybe this was my wifi problem so I installed a wifi range extender in the room where my simpli cam is and the result was the lag is now down to a 14 second lag, which doesn’t sound like that much but it is still too long. A thief could be in your home and disable the system before he would ever appear on video . Simpli safe does not even contact you unless the alarm is active for 30 seconds ! Video Storage- Simpli safe stores all video in the cloud accessible via the Simpli Safe app. There is no ability to add a micro SD card and I do not know how long they save stored events on their servers. At this price point it should offer both cloud and onsite storage. Adjustments- There are very few adjustments with this camera and all are done via the app. Basic adjustments are missing. Want to increase the sound? Can’t do it, want to zoom in? can’t do it, want to use two way talk? Can’t do it- there is no setting for this. I even contacted Simpli safe and they confirmed all of this. Mount- this camera only has one style of mount. It has to sit on a flat surface, no way to mount it on a wall. This limits where you can place it. Night mode- Night mode is very good, in fact mine is always in night mode (not my choice) I guess my rooms don’t have enough light. You can turn off night mode but then if you do the camera wont record anything at night. Frustrating Can I use it without Simpli Safe- No it only works with Simpli safe. Bottom line. This camera and the app are not ready for prime time, maybe by the 2nd or 3rd generation but right now it is not worth the money. There are MANY other wireless cameras to choose from that do not suffer the same setbacks as Simpli safe. Maybe Simplisafe will realize their camera’s shortcomings and allow companies that know how to make a camera integrate with the Simpli safe system. This camera was released out of Beta way to soon.

      I can't complain too much about the cam because there aren't many hundred dollar cams (or any) that integrate with and/or work independently from a security system...In short, you can pay 5 bucks a month for monitoring/recording without the SimpliSafe system or add it to the system that you already have and are paying 15 bucks each month for...remember there are still no contracts with SimpliSafe which is a bonus...however, it only records in 720, not 1080...Also, although it is matte black and on a metal stand, the Canary is a higher quality product and offers a siren too...Not a bad buy but maybe do your homework first to decide if you want to add Alexa/Google Assistant which this cam doesn't offer either.

      Does not stay connected to wifi router

      This camera came free with the Simply safe system I bought. If I had bought it I would have returned it. The pic quality is ok but it needs a lot more work to have a stronger signal to router. I have a new model linksys router, I put this camera in my detached garage near a window it is about 75' away from the router. This camera spends way more time down than connected to the wifi. To me the purpose of a security camera is to catch someone on it but if it is not connected to your wifi than it can not do it's job. It might work better if I set the camera on top of the router but have not tried it, but at a distance of 75' forget it.

      This camera was extremely easy to set up with my existing Simplified security system. The video quality is excellent and I can hear clearly from the internal mic. You can use it for live viewing to keep an eye on pets or kids for free, or for $5 month hey motion notifications and save clips for 10 days. It has worked great. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because it has gotten stuck during software updates a few times and I had to manually reset it to get it working again. Easy fix though, just unplugging it for a few minutes.

      The camera seems to capture video well and has some settings that you can program to operate more or less for privacy. I enjoy the access through the app to live video over WiFi. My biggest complaint is that the camera does not actually trigger the alarm system, you only get “activity” notifications to the app. This means they are basically forcing you into buying other sensors to actually trip the alarm and the camera is only a secondary sensor.

      Great Addition to Security System

      We have a SimpliSafe security system and I’d been thinking about ordering this camera. When I saw that Best Buy carried it, I decided to go ahead and purchase it. It was not easy to set up and required several phone calls to SimpliSafe which is why I only gave it 4 stars. Once we got the bugs worked out, it’s been working very well and I am much happier knowing that I can see what is going on in and around my home.

      Sorry SimpliSafe the SimpliCam is a flop! The alarm system I love it. The cam can only be viewed from an app on your phone and you can’t barley make out who the person is unless they are on top of the camera and the delay…. It takes more than a minute from when someone walks in front of the camera until it shows up in the little window on your app. The being said I took it back to Best Buy and purchased the Arlo system.

      This is a good addition to the SimpliSafe system. The camera image is super clear, even in the dark. The reason I gave it only 4 stars is because there is no sound and you cannot zoom. These features would be nice and add to its value. I got the camera for free though when I purchased my SimpliSafe system through Best Buy, so no complaints here.
