Is there an Arm/Disarm widget for iPhone?

Hi @shawnsmith4080, 

You cannot arm or disarm your system using the iPhone's widget, it does need to be done in the app itself. Currently, the widget only allows you to view a livestream of your cameras.

There isn’t a widget for iPhone.  At least I don’t see one.

@emily_sWidget support for SimpliSafe® on iOS is unavailable at this time.  13 days ago on this site!  Am I missing something?  You can’t view cameras on the widget page!

@davidasudak​ I connected with our internal teams on this, and they confirmed that there is a working widget for iOS devices that takes you to a livestream of your cameras. You can add it on your device by taking the following steps:

  1. Swipe right on your device's home screen
  2. At the bottom of the widget screen, tap Edit
  3. At the bottom of the widget screen, tap Customize
  4. Tap the green plus icon next to the SimpliSafe Cameras widget to add it to your widget home screen
  5. Tap Done on the upper right corner of your screen

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I will connect with the right teams to get that content updated.

We really need a widget like this. With iOS 17 making widgets interactive it would be a big convenience

I second this - an arm/disarm widget should be included, along with Siri commands

I'm actually disappointed this isn't an option. just joined from Vector and it was available.

The instructions do not work for iPhone14.  For 14 you press and hold on a page then select the plus button on the top left.  Search…

No widgets from SimpliSafe are found.

Same. The SimpliSafe widget does not exist for me. I found where to add widgets but searching or scrolling for SimpliSafe gets no results.
