The doorbell supports 1080p video recording and has a 162-degree wide-angle lens.

Founded in 2006, SimpliSafe has become one of the best brands when it comes to home security solutions. On October 16, the company announced its first outdoor security solution in the form of the SimpliSafe Video Doorbell Pro.

The Video Doorbell Pro replaces your traditional doorbell and has a camera lens that can record in 1080p Full HD and capture a wide field of view with a 162-degree lens. There’s also support for HDR and an infrared night vision for capturing movement no matter what time of day it is.

SimpliSafe detects motion in two ways — including a PIR sensor that captures human heat signatures and an image classification one that’s able to detect the shape/form of a person. Add that together with two-way audio communication, and you’ve got a pretty well-rounded package.

You can purchase the Video Doorbell Pro at Best Buy starting today for $ 169, and if you have other SimpliSafe products, it’ll tie right into those, too. Compared to the Nest Hello and Ring Video Doorbell Pro that retail for $ 230 and $ 250, respectively, SimpliSafe certainly has the upper hand when it comes to price.

Do you plan on picking one up?
