Simplisafe Selling illegally in California
This completes the legal process that started in May with the US House passing the bill with the ban and the August 1st Senate passing of the bill.
Direct Impact - Stop Purchasing and Removals
The ban technically starts one year after signing into law, which will be August 13, 2019. However, since the ban includes both purchasing and using existing equipment, it effectively starts immediately since it would make little practical sense to buy equipment today to have to remove it in 12 months.
The removal of Dahua and Hikvision branded equipment will be relatively straightforward since US government agencies can simply read the label on the devices. However, OEMs, which are included under the 'produced' for 'affiliates' clause, will also have to be removed.
