Are you upping the camera limit per account? Some of us already have 9 cameras plus a doorbell so we're at the current 10 camera limit. I'd like to add a couple of these to my hard wired constant outdoor set up.... But can't with the current limitations...

agree - dont want to add a whole new base station to just add more cameras as it would be a real pain. what is the limit cause by, was it just an arbitrary decision ?

@25northgateend  I think one of the issues is the up and down bandwidth required for each camera on  your WIFI.  10 cameras was probably determind as what SS would support by policy, meeting the requirements for the vast majority of customers.  I have six total with no need for more, outside and in combined.

I would love to hear SimpliSafe's response to this and not this conjecture. As someone who has dozens of WiFi devices recording at 1080p or higher I can tell you this isn't an issue for non-SS hardware and I'm running an original Google WiFi set up.
