Bulk Delete Videos

Add the ability to select multiply videos and delete the selected videos. I had a outdoor camera start recording at 3:00am every three minutes. This created 60 videos to delete. Deleting them one at a time takes forever.

I suggest a date-range archive/deletion capability to allow SimpliSafe accounts to archive unwanted video history in an accessible 30-day auto-delete bin, rather than having to delete each individual video manually; which is not efficient from an account user perspective, or SimpliSafe's active video storage functionality.

I am so surprised to see that there is no option of deleting multiple videos. This is so lame to delete videos individually. Any updates?

@anusinghus​ We have submitted this feature request to our dev team for their consideration, but at this time we do not have any updates from them. If/when this feature is brought into development, we'll let everyone know in this thread.

you would think someone at SimpliSafe would at least give us paying subscribers a reason why they won't implement this idea

@rwstaab​ if we had a reason not to, we'd say so! I would also mark the request above as "Not In Development".

Right now, it's just not in development yet. We'll keep you updated if and when that changes.

Hi, after all these are our viedoes and we should be able to have the option to delete one or all of them whenever we wish and not one at a time, I also have kuna camera system and it allows you to delete whatever you want with one click also google system has the same feature as does ring.

A bulk delete feature would be appreciated. The current multi-step deletion process is not user friendly or efficient.

@karensonne​ just to clarify, recordings from your cameras are saved to the cloud, with unlimited storage, not your own device. So while excessive recordings may fill up your timeline, it won't impact your phone's storage.

But thank you for chiming in with your support. If this feature is ever picked up by our dev team, we'll keep you updated here.

@davey_d​ what do you mean if ever? maybe they should consider what the subscribers want

@davey_d​, and there in your comment is the PROBLEM!!!  It fills up the time line because the cameras record EVERYTIME the system is activated and deactivated or motion is detected.  It's ridiculous the amount of videos you have to go through.  And I delete them and mysteriously there they are again.  Your reply is a little snippy!!  You'd think after so much time and COMPLAINTS they'd do SOMETHING!!!  Just my 2 cents!!!

I agree it is VERY time consuming to delete each video

I ask for this feature every time I talk to is Simplisafe agent. I'm not sure why Simplisafe refuses to develop what seems to be a fairly simple feature that would be greatly appreciated by those of us who like to delete videos.

My Ring system allows me to delete all at once or individually plus I can't start them to save the ones I want.

I read on several responses that videos are deleted after 30 days. If this is true then I have an error in my account as I currently have videos back through October 2023. Nobody wants that amount of videos stored on their account, especially as 99 percent of them are not relevant. THIS IS A MUST FIX!
