We tested SimpliSafe's outdoor camera in a real backyard, and we're happy to report that it passed muster. The SimpliSafe Outdoor Camera has clear video and great sound. To top things off, it also comes with a siren, zoom, and a motion-activated spotlight.
Honestly, we're relieved that this camera works so well. You can't use SimpliSafe with third-party camera brands, so the only way to get professional video alarm verification is to use SimpliSafe's cameras. This one does the trick, but we do wish it had more than one privacy zone.
