Netgear Arlo Pro 2 review

 

The Arlo Pro 2 is simply the best smart home security camera system you can buy.

Advanced scheduling and geofencing controls ; 7 days of free cloud storage ; Optional local backup via USB ; Backward compatible with Arlo Pro ; Scalable multi-camera plans for businesses

App interface a little convoluted

The Arlo Pro 2 may carry a high cost of entry for anyone looking for their first smart home camera, but it pays off. It is the most full-featured home security system we have yet tested. We are particularly impressed with the sheer amount of included...

Netgear's Arlo Pro 2 outdoor security cameras go where extension cords won't

 

Netgear's $480 Arlo Pro 2 home security cameras bring 1080p HD live streaming to your yard.

The cameras and related Arlo app work well and allow advanced features like person alerts and motion zones (if you subscribe to the Arlo Smart cloud service).

$480 is pricey for a two-camera kit. It's difficult to angle the cameras unless you mount and attach them to the included magnetic bases (which requires a more permanent install). Alexa and Google Assistant integration didn't work well in our testing.

If you don't need Alexa or Google Assistant support, the Netgear Arlo Pro 2 security cameras ably deliver reliable live streaming and prompt activity alerts packed in durable weatherproof housing.

Netgear Arlo Pro 2

 

Netgear's Arlo Pro 2 outdoor security camera system is completely wireless, works well with other smart home devices, and offers stunning 1080p video with free cloud and local storage options for event-triggered video.

Excellent-quality 1080p video. Weatherproof. Rechargeable batteries. Supports IFTTT and Alexa voice commands. Pre-buffered video recording. Continuous recording capabilities. Free and subscription-based cloud storage.

Expensive. Requires hub (included). Many features are only available when plugged in.

At $479, the Netgear Arlo Pro 2 is expensive, but you get two weatherproof cameras and a base station with a built-in siren and USB connectivity for storing recorded video locally. As with the original Arlo Pro cameras, the Pro 2 cameras are completely...

Netgear Arlo Pro 2 review: This already impressive indoor/outdoor security camera gets better

 

The second-generation Arlo Pro comes with higher resolution, improved motion detection, and more flexible installation options.

Can be use indoors or outdoors ; Customizable motion zones ; Can operate on either AC power or a rechargeable battery

Motion zones are only enabled when connected to AC power

The setup process for the Pro 2 is exactly the same as s—you plug the base station into your router with the supplied ethernet cable, then press sync buttons on the base station and the camera in succession to pair them. You’ll know they’ve paired...

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...

Netgear Arlo Pro 2 Review: Top-Notch Camera

 

Higher-image resolution is simply a measure of the volume of data, not the quality of that data. Therefore, while the Arlo Pro 2 is a higher-resolution camera than the Arlo Pro, we found the video quality of the Pro to be a bit better than that of the...

Simple installation ; Clean, intelligent interface ; Flexible and easy scheduling ; Geofencing turns system on/off depending on phone's location ; Very good daylight video quality ; Free seven-day rolling cloud storage

Can login from only one device at a time ; No auto-rotate of live or playback videos on mobile devices ; Motion detection tools separate from setup section.

The Netgear Arlo Pro 2 provides a great combination of software, free cloud storage and video quality.

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...
