When does the SimpliCam Indoor Camera record?


The SimpliCam Indoor Camera records during the following events:

  • Alarms

  • Disarming your SimpliSafe system

  • Camera Detected Motion

  • User Triggered Recording

  • Secret Alerts (When Enabled)

  • User-Initiated Test of the SimpliSafe system

  • Duress Alarm

  • Silent Panic button

  • Entry Delay (After entering your home while the system is alarmed)

  • Power Restored

If you have the privacy shutter closed on your SimpliCam, you will see it open and the camera will record to your timeline for the above events. Most notably, the privacy shutter will temporarily open and record when your system is disarmed from the Keypad, Mobile, or Web App. Motion events are only captured by the SimpliCam Indoor Camera when the privacy shutter is in an open state.
