down $50 for My BestBuy members. Offer valid till 22nd July 2017.
Rather basic functionality and closed ecosystem. But a decent add-on for Simplisafe subscribers with existing system. Might even be able to use without additional hardware. Monitoring subscription required if you want to record to cloud.

looks like this requires $4.99 monthly service for camera, correct?

you can view live feed on your phone for free, It will record short motion triggered clips as well. But for recording on demand, you have to subscribe for $5/month irrespective of whether you have an existing active monitoring subscription

I got it. You have to be a Best buy member and sign in online to get that price.

One thing to note is that this camera has a motion sensor. If you already have SimpliSafe and you've been thinking of adding on motion sensors, if you buy this you get your motion sensor plus added benefit of a camera for only $20 more than the motion sensor price ($29).

My experience with this camera is:
  • Setup is quick and easy
  • Picture is clear and nightvision works great
  • Viewing angle is much wider than any other camera I've tried
  • You do not need to pay SimpliSafe $5/month if you don't care about recordings. I use mine mostly to verify that it was the cat that triggered the false alarm (again).
  • The SS app lets you easily turn on and off your recording subscription per camera.
  • You have control over whether the monitoring company can see your cameras.
The only things I don't like about this camera are that it doesn't come in white and that it makes a clicking sound when it turns on. You can't turn that off.

Amcrest cameras are $49 all the time and better functionality for a stationary home camera

This product is useless imo. You can easily purchase a wifi surveillance camera with 1080p and pan/tilt for same amount of price on Amazon without a monthly fee. Also, I believe this simplicam is communicating through your wifi router, instead of their GSM network.

If I don't want the recording plan, am i able to download the short motion triggered clip to my phone?

Also if I don't have Simplisafe's interactive plan, will I receive alert when motion is detected?

I have simplisafe and we are happy with it. It uses cellular and battery so safe even with no electricity. However, for this camera, there is no zoom, no pan, it's $4 per camera for cloud recording not $4 for all the cameras. I would stay way.

Agreed! But didn't know they had a different model. How does this compare to the ip2m-841 models?

I've had them for three years and it's been great! Quick to get a call if the alarm goes off and it was really easy to setup. What I like the most is if I'm going out of town for an extended period of time, I upgrade to the $25 plan for that month and I get access to all the remote features and notifications. Then I set it back to the low $15 just monitoring plan.

My one advice would be to buy your system refurbished from their website, it will save you 25% if you're setting up a full house (but only if you'll actually use all the sensors it comes with).
