SimpliSafe Doorbell Installation

If you are looking to install a SimpliSafe Video Doorbell Pro, you’ve come to the right place. In this step-by-step guide, we will walk you through the entire process of installing the doorbell, ensuring a seamless and secure setup.

Preparing for Installation

Before you begin the installation process, it’s crucial to turn off the power to your existing doorbell. This can be done by switching off the circuit breaker that controls the doorbell’s power supply. If you don’t have a working doorbell, you can use a multimeter to check if the power is off. Simply remove the doorbell, ensure the power is off using the multimeter, and proceed with the installation.

Here are the steps to install the SimpliSafe Video Doorbell Pro:

  1. Remove the existing doorbell – Start by removing the screws that hold the existing doorbell in place. Be careful not to touch the contacts inside the doorbell. If you are unsure whether the power is off or have trouble finding the right circuit breaker, use a multimeter to confirm.

  2. Attach the base plate – In the SimpliSafe Video Doorbell Pro package, you will find a base plate and an angled plate. If you want to change the angle of the doorbell, use the angled plate. Otherwise, you can install it vertically without the angled plate. Put the wires through the base plate and secure it with screws.

  3. Connect the wires – Loosen the terminals on the doorbell and slide the wires underneath. Connect the white wire to one terminal and the red wire to the other. Ensure a secure connection.

  4. Install the doorbell – Slide the SimpliSafe Video Doorbell Pro onto the base plate. Make sure there is clearance above the doorbell for it to slide in properly. You can also insert the security screw provided to prevent unauthorized removal.

  5. Restore power – Once the doorbell is securely installed, turn the power back on at the circuit breaker. Wait a few minutes for the doorbell to power up and initialize. You will see a green light and a flashing blue light.

  6. Set up through the SimpliSafe app – Download and open the SimpliSafe app on your smartphone. Create a username and password, then log in. Follow the app’s instructions to set up the SimpliSafe Video Doorbell Pro by selecting the appropriate options and inputting your Wi-Fi network information.

  7. Secure the doorbell – Don’t forget to insert the security screw provided with the doorbell. This will prevent anyone from easily removing it.

With these steps, you can install the SimpliSafe Video Doorbell Pro and ensure a smooth and secure setup in your home.

By preparing properly, attaching the base plate, connecting the wires, installing the doorbell, and setting it up through the SimpliSafe app, you can enjoy the convenience and security of a video doorbell in your home.
