New Motion Sensor on Order!

Simplisafe announced two new product releases late yesterday that were seen months ago on the FCC website. Nice to see them announced and I have one of them, the new AI enhanced motion sensor, on pre-order at Best Buy!  Back in the day with SS3 just released, I tested the "new and improved" motion sensors with my son's 6 pound dripping wet miniature dachshund Stella.  She fearlessly roamed the first floor of our house at night testing all of the six room motion sensors and was able to trip almost all of them, no matter what sensitivity setting or location I tried.  Eventually, with more than a few days of testing, Stella and I found the optimal location and settings to make a "Stella proof" setup.

Unfortunately, Stella is on to much nicer stomping grounds at this time so my neighbor has graciously volunteered Lexie to fill in for testing duties, coming in at a much more hefty 22 pounds, but well within the claimed specs that SS has provided.  Ship date is unknown but I will post my findings on how intelligent that artificial intelligence actually is! 

Finally, thanks to the Prod Development team for delivering what appears two significantly improved products (motion sensor and smoke/CO sensor combo.)

Where did you order the new motion sensor from? I only seen the new 2-in-1 smoke/CO detector on the SS pages.

@worthing​ Found it at BestBuy.com If you do a more generic search on "simplisafe" it will show up, with a "Pre-order" status. As of this morning, it still has not shippped. More information is available at the FCC site. Definitely looks different and very curious how it will handle my neighbor's dog.

Found it at Best Buy for pre-order:

https://www.bestbuy.com/site/simplisafe-motion-sensor-white/6543525.p?skuId=6543525

Model is CA001-01RUS and price is $34.99 which is $5 more than the old model? But at least there's supposedly new features to justify that cost unlike the $20 hike in the Outdoor Camera Price.
