Outdoor Camera Firmware 1.6 (February 2022)
New year, new update! This one is focused on improving the experience for users of the Wireless Outdoor Camera. As a reminder, camera updates are pushed to your devices automatically - so no action is required on your end.
The full rollout is already in progress as of today (2/8/21), and will gradually be sent out to all active Outdoor Cameras in the next couple of weeks. You can check if your camera has already been updated through the SimpliSafe app, at the bottom of the Camera Settings page. If your camera has been updated, you should see version 1.6.5 or higher.
One more important thing to know is that the groundwork for this update was laid out in Base Station Firmware Update 2.5. To take advantage of these improvements for the Outdoor Camera, you’ll want to make sure that your Base Station is up to date.
Here’s what’s coming to your Wireless Outdoor Camera:
- Faster notifications on your phone for motion events
- Better support for select WiFi mesh routers
- Faster startup for live streaming and recording
- Resolved an issue impacting battery life of some devices
