The SimpliCam is designed for indoor use. SimpliSafe sells an Outdoor Kit that covers the camera in a “wetsuit” to protect it from the elements and enable you to use your camera outdoors.
The camera will need to be close enough to your home to connect to the WiFi network. It will also need to be within 25 feet of a power outlet. If your WiFi network does not reach your ideal location, you may be able to purchase a WiFi extender. WiFi extenders are readily available online, or you may purchase one through our support center.
Using the SimpliCam outdoors without an outdoor kit may void your warranty.
