Camera on a different SSID

Can an outdoor camera be connected to a WiFi extender that is a different SSID name but on the same network as the rest of the SimpliSafe cameras and base station?

Hi @chuckstuh ,

All cameras connect to SimpliSafe's servers, and that's where all the account connectivity magic happens. So your cameras don't even have to be connected through the same WiFi network! They just need to be able to get through to the internet.
