Battery operated Video Doorbells

My son just bought a house that has no doorbell, and he doesn't want to go to the trouble/expense of retrofitting a wired doorbell. Neither he nor I am very handy.

He will be installing a SimpliSafe home security system (already purchased for a prior house). Because he doesn't want to retro wire a conventional doorbell before installing the SimpliSafe Doorbell, I have suggested that he investigate a cheaper battery-operated local storage video doorbell and then mounting the new SimpliSafe outdoor video camera so he can get visitors recorded on the SimpliSafe system.

Can you see any gaps in my logic on this? Can you recommend some inexpensive non-wired Video doorbells?

Any comments would be greatly appreciated.

@glenbarrington I believe I read somewhere in the forums that SS was working on a battery operated doorbell  model. May be worth the wait for Johnny M to comment.

Hi folks,

Unfortunately I'm not able to give more info on what we've got in development. Right now, the Video Doorbell Pro is our only doorbell product.

That being said, you might want to consider the Wireless Outdoor Camera. Which it can't function as a doorbell, it can at least send notifications for anyone approaching your doorstep, and it's not just limited to being at your door, and can be placed anywhere for a better view.
