Android & iOS App - Dark Mode

I've done some preliminary searching on the forums here, but haven't found a request for this.... so, my retinas, and my sanity are formally requesting Dark Mode for all App flavors.  Please... PLEASE, can we get a simple dark mode for the apps?

Thank you!

@Brad8989 I have some great news for you and for everyone else following this thread. Dark Mode is rolling out now for iOS, and the Android version will follow suit very soon. You'll just want to update to the latest version of the SimpliSafe app, and the option will be available. Check out our post here to learn more.

We need the app to recognize "Dark Mode" background settings. Trying to look at a bright white screen in the bright daylight or in a night black room, the gray fonts cannot be easily seen.

@BubbaRog Excellent suggestion! SS, you can make it an app setting or, default to system setting. Either one will work, whatever is easier for you!

Any movement on this or confirmation on whether dark mode will be supported?

Love SimpliSafe and the app,  but dark mode would be great! Old eyes friendly.

Simplisafe; Been 3 months now... Can we at least get acknowledgement and if there is any projected forward movement on our request?  A timeline or any other progression is appreciated.

@BubbaRog​ I'm sorry to say, at this time there is no update to this request.

Is there anything on your end you can do to push this forward?  It's almost 2023 and not having the option of dark mode (especially for paying subscribers) is a bit ridiculous.

@davey_d​ would there happen to be any good news as to this topic?

SimpliSafe cannot be blind to this feature that is so ubiquitous across all companies and platforms. It is not only an aesthetic choice, but it is also a medical benefit, too.

I have eye disease, and the bright is hard for me to read. Dark mode would be very much appreciated.

Is there any update on the forum? Why does Simplisafe still not offer a dark mode theme for the app?

@raims430​ This request has been submitted to our dev team, but at this time it is not currently in development. When this request gets picked up, an update will be provided in this thread.

Adding my request for dark mode as well. 

(Note I couldn’t add new comment to the thread so am trying as reply to a comment…)

Some coding commentary:  Reading posts on this forum appears nice n dark on Brave (w Night enabled of course), but this comment box appeared w light background and is bugging my eyes while entering this text.

It’s been over a year at this point. It’s frustrating to see this kind of timeline for such a basic feature that countless other free apps have supported for years. What is going on?

@AMonitorDarkly​ We have forwarded this feature request to our dev team for their consideration, but right now it is not in development. Once we hear more from our devs regarding this request, we will update this thread.

@emily_s That’s very disappointing to hear considering Dark Mode in iOS has been around since 2019. This is a very basic feature that virtually all apps support.

Please let the development team and customer relations know that their customers expect better from a service that we’re paying for.

It would be a very welcomed feature if the SimpliSafe app supported a dark mode on iOS & Android.

@PismireWestern Now this is a great idea.  My Pixel 8 is set to dark mode and most apps have this feature.  SS, a college intern during their lunch hour with a few slices of pizza and six pack could do this coding!  Please implement as soon as possible!

Right, this is the most basic thing. There’s zero excuse for SS to be dragging their feet this much.

Yes! It's late at night and trying to monitor my system using a bright screen is horrible! Please allow dark mode.

1 Message

Adding my voice here… we are paying customers, please PLEASE implement this basic feature!

This is a safety issue; if we are unable to monitor our system, what good is it?

Pretty unacceptable for a company as big as Simplisafe to not have a feature as basic as dark mode by now. Please get on it. I’ll do it for your iOS app myself if your dev team is incapable or too busy.
