Hi @oldcrate!

Thanks for the feedback. Unfortunately no, the only video doorbell compatible with SimpliSafe is our own. And yes, right now we've only got the one model that needs to plug into an existing wired doorbell. We'll definitely keep you updated if we ever come out with a model that fits your needs!

In the meantime, we do have the Wireless Outdoor Camera. Unfortunately, it's currently out of stock. But it's fully battery-powered and can be mounted anywhere, so that might be a good solution for watching over your door.

Don't know if you're keeping track, but I'll add another request here for a batter doorbell. We're using your system in two different locations and neither one of them has power to the front door. As such, we can't use the doorbell. 

All of your competitors have a battery operated doorbell, so it seems like something you should have too.

Ditto, I need a video doorbell that runs on battery (like Ring has).  I do not have AC wiring at my front or back door.  Please add this to your products so I can dump Ring and switch my 2 doorbells to SimpliSafe.  Thanks

Throwing my 2 cents in as well. We have loved our Simplisafe video doorbell for several years but we just moved into a house with two doors that really need a video doorbell and they have absolutely no way of getting power to the front door. I really don't want to boot Simplisafe and our subscription service but the video doorbell is the most important part of our system and I really wouldn't keep paying Simplisafe if we had to use a different company's battery powered video doorbell.

@tchrisman2​ I absolutely hear you. We have submitted this feature request for a battery powered doorbell to our dev team, but unfortunately we do not have any updates on its status. 

As Davey mentioned above, we do have an Outdoor Camera which could maybe be a good solution as it is wireless and battery powered.
