One Hour Smart Home brings you a step-by-step guide on how to install the SimpliSafe Video Doorbell Pro. This model is the latest video doorbell from SimpliSafe. To begin the installation process, the first step is to turn off the power to your existing doorbell.

If your existing doorbell is working, you can simply press the button to see if it lights up or rings. However, if it’s not working or lit up, you’ll have to ensure the power is off in a different way. One option is to turn off the circuit breaker for the doorbell at the circuit panel. This will turn off the power to the doorbell, and you won’t hear the chime anymore.

If you don’t have an existing doorbell or are unsure if the power is off, you can use a multimeter to test it. Carefully remove the doorbell and make sure not to touch the contacts inside. Set the multimeter to voltage reading and check if there’s any power. If there’s no reading, it means the power is off.

Once you have confirmed the power is off, it’s time to remove the screws and take out the existing doorbell. Make sure to disconnect the wires carefully. Now, let’s move on to installing the SimpliSafe Video Doorbell Pro.

In addition to the doorbell itself, you’ll need a base plate and an angled plate for adjusting the angle. The angled plate allows you to change the angle of the doorbell by 15 degrees. You can choose to install it with or without the angled plate, depending on your preference. It’s recommended to angle it upwards for better visibility of people’s faces.

To install the doorbell, insert the wires through the base plate and secure them with screws. Remove the clearance tab if there’s anything obstructing the doorbell’s placement. Attach the wires to the terminals, ensuring a strong connection. Finally, tighten the screws to secure the doorbell in place.

Remember to use the small security screw provided to lock the doorbell into the base plate, preventing theft. Once everything is set up, restore the power by turning on the circuit breaker. Install the security screw to ensure the doorbell stays in place.

Once the power is restored, it’s time to set up the doorbell using the SimpliSafe app. Download the app, create a username and password, and log in. Open the app and click on “Set up a system.” Select “Video Doorbell Pro” and give your property a name. Choose the Wi-Fi network and enter the password.

After connecting to Wi-Fi, follow the app’s instructions to complete the setup. You can customize settings and notifications through the app to personalize your experience. Make sure to secure the doorbell’s settings by adding the security screw provided.

With the SimpliSafe Video Doorbell Pro successfully installed and connected to the app, you can now enjoy the convenience and security it provides. It’s an excellent addition to your smart home setup, allowing you to monitor your front door and interact with visitors from anywhere using your smartphone.

In conclusion, the installation process for the SimpliSafe Video Doorbell Pro is straightforward. By following the steps outlined in this guide, you can successfully install and set up the doorbell to enhance the security and convenience of your home.
