Need to come out with alternative doorbell

I know this is probably not a big concern to most of the costumers, but I am unable to sync my entire home with SimpliSafe technology as my home did not come with a pre existing doorbell, therefore I cannot install the doorbell pro. A suggestion would be to come up with an alternative which would allow you to be able to sync without having to direct wire into home.

It has nothing to do with "synching" the camera.  All that needs is a good Wi-Fi signal.  The camera comes with a doorbell BUTTON, which activates your EXISTING doorbell system (but not all doorbell systems, sadly).  If you don't have a doorbell system,(or the right kind of doorbell system), you can add one, or you can add just a doorbell power supply.  SS recently announced an update to have the base go "ding dong" when the button is pushed, but I  have not heard if and how well this is working yet.
