Attention Android Users: Info using Widgets

For you Android users out there, did you know there are several great Simplisafe widgets you can use? Check them out and try them. My favorite is the most recent add for the cameras.  A nice little footprint, it allows quick access to any of your simplicams, doorbell pro or outside camera with a very nice carousel  interface; rotate through, tap on the one you want and it take you directly there (fingerprint required if you use it to secure your app). Works great!!!

Suggstion to SS: When your new site gets up, have a webinar, one for iOS and one fo Android, to walk through what is available and how to use it!

Hi Captain,

That's a great idea. Or at least a Help Center page. I'll send this up to our CX team.

I had to Google a widget's primary function. I know it is an option on my phone, but I still cannot figure out the benefit. I suppose I have more reading to do.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

(This, unfortunately, shows how little I use my phone)

@shiherlis The widgets allow different access to different features on your phone.  The only widget for SS I currently use is the one I posted about.  I like it for the ability to quickly scroll through my 6 cameras and then have direct access to a live feed with minimal effort. Simple most always works!
