Camera views- Multiple Views

I am the Security Leader of my church. We recently purchased SimpliSafe and love it
I would like to set up my laptop so I can view all doors at one glance, in case someone goes out a door and leaves it open for another to enter with ill will.
Any one know how I can to this?
Thanks
Ed

As far as I know you can only have one live feed at a time.

However, if you have sensors on every door, you can use the app to see a list of them all at once with any open flagged.

Furthermore, live view tends to cut out pretty quickly, and needs a lot of upload speed to be any kind of current.

If you want to see a number of things at the same time, at a mere glance, you pretty much have to use wired cameras controlled by a DVR or NVR

SimpliSafe is not really conducive to that sort of use.

I use about a dozen Dahua PoE IP cams and experimenting with an additional four wireless IP cams using Blue Iris (BI) software on some used Dell OptiPlex computers. The systems run/record 24/7/365 and automatically send me snapshots of various trigger events, etc. The BI software is pretty powerful. I use a small fraction of its capability. I think you can use up to 64 cameras.

Can log into either system remotely and view live footage or stored video. There isn't any timeout on the live views. If you can maintain a connection you can live view indefinitely far as I know.

You can set up a video wall to see multiple camera and cycle though others if you want.
