Wireless doorbell?

So is the doorbell actually wireless or does it need to have a power supply?  Description says there needs to be an existing doorbell set-up for it to work...In this day and age, it seems that this should not need an existing supply for it to work.....

Hi,

Yes, the Video Doorbell Pro needs to plug into an existing wired doorbell for power and sound. But in terms of connection to the service, it uses WiFi.

@davey_d​ Hi. My doorbell is on the side of my entryway, so you're wired model will not work for me. Is there a wireless doorbell in our future?

Thanks

Hi @flygirl1212​, 

We have submitted the request of a wireless doorbell to our dev team. Once we get any news from them, we will provide an update in this thread

@davey_d​ will y’all be producing a fixed rate or rate of rise heat detector anytime in the future?

@jcrawford360​ This is a product request that we've submitted to our devs for their consideration. If we hear more from them, we'll let everyone know in this thread.

Is there any SimplySafe product that does not require a wired setup for power or sound?  I thought I read somewhere SimplySafe product 2 that avoids this requirement.

  • It should have a rechargeable battery within the bell structure and also
  • make use of wireless integration with the base station sound or voice capability to indicate that the Doorbell has been pressed.

Also, if that functionality does not presently exist, is there any plans to perform that functionality in the future?

@jennirudinsky​ unfortunately, we only have the one Video Doorbell product right now, and that's the one that needs to plug into an existing wired mechanical doorbell.

But we also have the Wireless Outdoor Camera, which is fully battery-powered. It does not have a doorbell function, but it can trigger recordings and notifications with motion.

@davey_d​ SimpliSafe seriously needs to work on getting a wireless doorbell, if not I may need to switch my service

@travelgirl2323​ I’m still in my 60 day trial and I’m thinking of sending back my system as I need a wireless doorbell.  It seems most companies have them.

i don’t want to buy from 2 different venders.  I have one wired door bell, but need two that are not as I don’t have wiring for them and it’s to expensive to have one wired.

It sure would be nice to have a battery-powered Videodoorbell Pro.  I thought Simplisafe was developing one.  Haven't heard whether they went forward with it.  As someone living in a 1968-built brick house, it would be messy, difficult, and expensive to run a wire to our front door.

I live in an apartment complex (and is too short to look through peepholes). I hope Simplisafe would come out with a wireless doorbell that is also safe to use and isn't damaging for apartments. I would like to keep all my security home products under one account/umbrella.

It is ridiculous that they have not come up with this yet.

Need to make a chime device for inside home when there is not a preexisting doorbell. Otherwise, the camera doorbell is useless.

Yep...I'm also waiting for a wireless doorbell/video product. They have to be working on one in this day and age.

It connects wirelessly to the base station. Needs a 24VAC supply either by doorbell or a 24 wall plug transformer.

Clearly, there is a demand for a wireless doorbell camera, based on the feedback you are receiving here from dedicated Simplisafe customers.  Can someone from Simplisafe please respond to let us know if a wireless doorbell camera is in the works and, if so, what stage you are at in making this item available?  Thank you.

Hi @jsnsssrs​, 

This product request has been submitted to our developers for their consideration, but unfortunately at this time I do not have any updates on it. Once we hear any news, we'll be sure to update the Community!

Thanks, Emily!  If Simplisafe won't develop a wireless doorbell, is there a chance that Simplisafe would cooperate with another company that has such a device so that it can be included as part of a Simplisafe "home network?"

I was wondering if you plan to offer a wireless video doorbell in the future? The wiring for my old doorbell has long since disintegrated and I don't want to call an electrician to reinstall the wiring. I have another doorbell system now but I am not very happy with it, and I would like to have one integrated with my SimpliSafe system. Thank you for listening.

This website works if you want to add the doorbell. You have to buy wiring for it, but it's a fairly simple set up.
