IP cameras for Simplisafe system??? I've been asking for years.

We already pay for the service, we already pay for the cloud storage for our indoor cameras.  Why not ditch the plug-in indoor cameras and implement some POE IP indoor/outdoor cameras into this system.  Then all we would need to run is cat6 ethernet cable to each camera from a simplisafe DVR, no plugging cameras into a 120v outlet.  I want outdoor cameras, but I need to purchase a totally separate camera system than simplisafe to make it work.  

When will simplisafe get with the times?

IMO, won't happen because for 99% of SS clientele running a bunch of cables is the anithesis of "Simply".

I use several PoE cameras, about a dozen or so actually, but in a completely separate system. There are plenty of options that don't have one in a locked ecosystem for the 1%ers, so to speak, that want to go that way.

Have had very good results with Dahua cameras and Blue Iris software.
