Video Doorbell Pro Motion Detection


All SimpliSafe Video Doorbell Pros uses both video analytics and passive infrared to detect motion in its field of view and now feature more granular motion detection options to let you better control the quantity and types of notifications you get. The camera has a 120 degree field of view and a motion detection zone of 90 degrees from left to right, downward, and straight out.

When motion is detected, the doorbell will issue a notification to you to alert you. If you have a recording subscription or an interactive monitoring plan, the doorbell will also record the event. If you do not have a subscription, you will be shown the live streaming view from the doorbell. 

Activity Zones

During the daytime, your doorbell can ignore parts of the video for motion detection purposes, such as a busy street.


People-only Detection

You can set your doorbell to only recognize motion triggered by human-like objects during the day.


Daytime and Nighttime Sensitivity

You can now separately set daytime and nighttime sensitivity for more granular control.
