Not In Development


Local video recording storage

I am actually surprised that SS does not have a feature/device allowing to store camera recordings locally.

Why not?

I think the user community would welcome such a feature.

Our current lineup of cameras are built around Monitoring Service functions, which make important features like Video Verification and 24/7 live guard protection possible. As such, our lineup of cameras - including the SimpliCam Indoor Camera, Video Doorbell Pro, Wireless Outdoor Camera, and Smart Alarm Indoor Camera - are not capable of local storage. If we ever release a new model of camera, you'll be sure to hear about it in this Community!

Especially when cameras that cost from 1/3rd to 1/5th the price from competitors have that functionality...

I agree. We should have the option to save locally

It doesn't make them money that way.   They don't care what the community wants, I'm learning that the hard way right now.  Good luck to you.

Am I missing something? I like others would like the ability to control when the outdoor cameras record and notify. Not an all or nothing solution. This would of course mean less drive space needed for Simplisafe. To a novice this doesn’t seem that difficult and would save Simplisafe money. My concern is that maybe it is not possible with the current Simplisafe ecosystem and that is why it hasn’t been done yet. Do we need to wait for SS4? Any thoughts?

Note: This comment was created from a merged conversation originally titled Wouldn’t Simplisafe want to have less video storage?

Sad but true.  When we move I'm thinking of switching as not having local video storage is ridiculous.
