Transformer for Doorbell

We would like to install 2 SimpliSafe doorbells, but we have no existing wired doorbells.

Does SimpliSafe offer the necessary transformer hardware?

I had the same question and SimpliSafe tells me no they don't. Look up ohmcat.com they have everything you need.

Hi @largedoggie ,

Unfortunately no. The Video Doorbell Pro is designed to be installed into an existing wired mechanical doorbell, and no other wiring setups are supported.

FWIW, here's the ohmkat website: https://www.ohmkat.com/

Super helpful!

And if you are an Amazon Prime member, one can buy directly from Amazon and get free shipping to boot.

This looks like the perfect solution to the problem.

Arriving tomorrow. Will post back if any issues but the equipment looks elegant and easy to install; great instructions and video tutorials. Sure beats a ~$500 electrician fee :)
