Netgear Arlo Pro

 

The Netgear Arlo Pro is a completely wireless surveillance camera system designed for outdoor use. It's a snap to install, delivers excellent video, works with other smart home devices, and offers free cloud storage.

Sharp HD video. Supports IFTTT. Works with other smart home devices. Free cloud storage. Geofencing support. Motion- and sound-triggered recording. Rechargeable batteries. Weatherproof. Easy to install.

Pricey. Requires a hub (included).

With the Netgear Arlo Pro you can monitor both the inside and the outside of your home (provided you buy two cameras) without having to run network cables, and you don't need an AC power source. The camera uses rechargeable batteries that will provide...

Netgear Arlo Pro review

 

There's a lot to love about Netgear's $250/£300 Arlo Pro security camera. Its rechargeable battery is simpler to deal with than the original Netgear Arlo's expensive and hard-to-find CR123s. The Arlo Pro also adds in two-way audio so you can tell any...

Netgear's $250/£300 Arlo Pro provides indoor and outdoor security monitoring in a single camera. You get seven days of free event-based cloud storage, and its rechargeable battery is supposed to last for up to six months.

The Arlo Pro costs more than its competition, and it was difficult to see what was happening in night-vision mode. Some customers won't want to deal with a hub accessory during installation.

The Arlo Pro is an even smarter DIY cam than Netgear's first-gen Arlo, but competitors are closing in fast with innovative designs and updated apps.

Netgear Arlo Pro review: A great home security camera you can use indoors or out

 

Netgear's truly wire-free IP cam brings welcome flexibility to home monitoring.

Cameras are entirely wire-free (no power or ethernet cables) ; Highly customizable motion detection ; Can be deployed indoors or outdoors (IP65 rating)

Hard to see detail backround in night vision mode ; Setting up a separate hub might be a turn off ; Magnetic mount leaves cameras susceptible to theft

The Arlo Pro is a definite improvement over the original Arlo HD. Its ability to function equally well indoors or outdoors is fairly unique, and the app’s motion detection controls are some of the best we’ve seen. The idea of setting up a separate base...

Netgear Arlo Pro, First Take: Pricey, but plenty of options

 

The latest version of Netgear's clever little security camera, Arlo Pro , adds a rechargeable battery and higher video quality (720p), plus two-way audio and a siren. This lets you talk to the courier trying to deliver a parcel, or shout at the...

The Best Wireless Outdoor Home Security Camera

 

After spending almost three months testing outdoor Wi-Fi home security cameras, we've decided that the Netgear Arlo Pro is the best for most people.

After a lot of waiting, watching, and deleting email alerts, we’ve come to the conclusion that the Arlo Pro is the best outdoor Wi-Fi home security camera currently available. It’s easy to install, place, and use. It performed just as well as the other...

Netgear Arlo Pro Review

 

The Arlo Pro ties with the Arlo Q for the Best Security Camera Overall. The Arlo Pro produces excellent video and very-high-quality audio, and has a highly functional, convenient, intelligent and easy-to-understand user interface.

Simple, quick installation ; Clean, intelligent interface with rich set of features ; Excellent video capture ; Very good audio quality ; Flexible scheduling ; Geofencing tied to your phone's location ; Samsung SmartThings and IFTTT integration ; Very...

Can access from only one device at a time per account ; No continuous-recording option ; Limited sharing

The Arlo Pro is an excellent wireless security camera with great video, free cloud storage, powerful motion and sound detection and programmable scheduling.

NETGEAR Arlo Pro Review

 

The wireless capability is convenient for an outdoor camera, but it offer lesser video quality than other model

Wireless, weatherproof

Expensive, relatively poor video resolution, poor real time viewing

The Arlo Pro is a fairly convenient, wireless outdoor camera. However, its convenience factor won't outweigh its performance shortcomings for most users.

Netgear Arlo Pro Review: How do you improve something so good?

 

It's been two years since I first installed Arlo cameras at my home. These wire-free security cameras were a revolution – I'd always wanted surveillance video but there was no way I was running wires for power and connectivity. To have a weather proof,...
