Looking for a proximity sensor to be installed outside a home entry point (door/window).  Objective is to detect and alert if something approaches an entry point PRIOR is it being breached.  Modern cars have such sensors to alert when something is close, so wondering if SimpliSafe systems have something similar.

Hi @geopcase, 

We offer a Motion Sensor that detects moving objects, but it is not designed for outdoor use. Our Outdoor Camera and Video Doorbell Pro are both designed for outdoor use and will send you a push notification when they sense motion. However, they cannot trigger alarms when motion is detected.
