Ideas from the Noorio camera for SS.
We have been using SimpliSafe for the past year and for the most part like it.
I recently bought a Noorio Camera for the front porch to try. There are several features that I really like I wish/hope SS adds them.
1) the camera is $99 the image is very good
*It has geofencing to switch modes and you can add multiple phones.
*You can schedule different mode switching.
*The motion detection is very good. You set it by the number of feet to look at.
*It does not have monitoring but has cloud storage(30 days) for $29/year per camera. In camera storage is free.
Four modes: Home, Away, Sleep, Disarm. All modes can be set to do one or all of the following. (Rec video, push notification, camera alarm)
when the motion is triggered it records video and very good audio. Besides a mic to talk back there is an alarm you can trigger or you can set to trigger if motion is seen. I don't use that feature.
I am not suggesting this camera instead of SS. I like SS alarm system, window triggers, indoor sensors, etc.
But many of Noorio features have been asked by me and others. Their camera price is very attractive also.
