Really great camera system.
Posted by: Mitch from: on
I was looking for a camera system that is 100% wire-free. The cameras use CR123 batteries and WiFi, so they are 100% wire-free. Nest cameras use WiFi but need an A/C power source. Also, the monthly fee is much cheaper for these cameras. Arlo lets you use a free plan that gives you a small amount of space for cloud recording, where Nest won't let you use anything. Overall, I really recommend it.

Excellent Camera System with no wires
Posted by: vafaskillz from: on
I bought the top of the line system to monitor my Dog that was diagnosed with a debilitating form of cancer (RIP Namac). During his last month, I had confidence that every angle was covered in my home and being able to speak through 2 of the cameras was a big plus. The image quality is excellent and you have the option to lower the quality to save on battery life. It has other options, such as motion detection, but I was getting annoyed by all the notifications. My only negatives are the delay (about 3 seconds) and the voice quality on the 2 way audio. You need to really speak up to be heard! Other than that, this is an excellent system and exceptionally easy setup. I would not hesitate to recommend to my friends. And for those of you interested, here is a video on the BEST dog ever, Namac.

Easy set up no mess of wires.
Posted by: AlexO from: on
The arlo cameras are amazing for the price in my opinion. Easy to set up, easy to mount and the magnet is very strong on the camera. You can adjust the sensitivity level as well as duration of the clip when motion is detected. You can choose to record from 10sec to over 2min. Arlo has an app so you can view the recordings and live view threw your iPhone or android. The night vision on the cameras give a well view at night. The arlo q has same functions as the wireless ones but with some extra features like you can hear what's going around the area as well as you can speak threw the phone and you will be able to hear yourself threw the camera. The only thing I do not like about the camera is that it can only record one camera at a time which ever detects motion first.

Decent security system for homeowner installation
Posted by: atstern from: on
The Arlo system is fairly decent if you need to install a 100% wireless system. The indoor cameras (AC required) were very good - we were able to stream on demand and also listen/speak (we once used it as a monitor for our puppy and freaked him out by talking to him). The base is magnetic or it can be screwed in making it simple to install and adjust. The outdoor cameras had surprisingly good WiFi connectivity and battery life. We had the cameras for about 6 weeks in a high-traffic area and the batteries dropped only to about 88%. The magnetic mounts make them easy to adjust, while the optional screw-in mounts are more secure. In the end we wound up returning the system for 4 reasons: 1) the geofencing option, which is still in beta, only worked successfully about 80% of the time. The other times the cameras would activate even though I was home. 2)The picture quality I would rate only as fair. The indoor cameras were slightly better but the outdoor cameras were too far away...even though one was mounted about 6' from our front door, it was still difficult to make out faces. The camera would practically need to be mounted to the doorframe to get a good look. 3) the controls, via iOS and web browser are very limited- no FF, Rewind, slo-mo etc. and bar to drag ahead and back often didn't work at all. 4) the 'free' storage option is only good for up to 6 cameras and the videos are only saved for about a week. If you need more cameras or longer storage (30 day max?) you have to pay a monthly subscription. Bottom line, if hardwiring is not an option, the Arlo is probably the best system out there. If you can run Cat 5e, go with Ubiquiti UVC G3 system or Synology instead.

Batteries die fast, poor customer support.
Posted by: jmsbrdh from: on
Batteries die easily. Customer service denies bad batteries. Batteries are expensive. Getting the minimum of what I purchased it for. Do like the fact that it was easy set up though. I'll find a better system once I get my money's worth. Should have returned it while I could. I would have rather purchased something else. Best Buy employees weren't able to give me any help with camera systems.

Fantastic wireless home camera system!
Posted by: Jesse from: on
I had my doubts about the functionality of this system but now I'm convinced it works as advertised and I think it's great! Being a Netgear product is what finally convinced me to try it - I've had great luck with Netgear routers over the years including my current Nighthawk X6 tri-band. Set-up was quick and I only had a few challenges paring a couple of the wireless cameras but after a few tries I got the hang of it. I would have given it a 5 star but the App seems to have a few quirks - still works well and intuitive. Battery life is okay and down about 10% avg on all 4 batteries after 8 days - note not armed all the time. Some lag as others have noted but for what it's supposed to do not a real issue and picture quality is very good. Two variables that make the difference for me: 1) Wireless and can install just about anywhere around the house; 2) access from anywhere in the world!

Easy set up. Effective and fun to use
Posted by: stupech from: on
Bought this after recommended by my son, who researched these types of home video monitors and recommended this one after buying it himself. I'm reasonably capable with home and businesss IT electronics, and found this relatively easy to set up. As I've played with it, I've figured out the best way to use the various cameras and recording modes to suit my needs. But it would have been nice if the box included more detaled instructions on how best use the set up, mode, and scheduling functions, instead of making you find what you want toknow on their website, or trial and error like I did. I have not been able to set up the "geofencing" mode, which I believe is supposed to turn the cameras off if it detects you are at home with your geopositioned cell phone. It shows that as a beta function, so maybe it's not supposed to be functional yet. I had previously looked into having a professionally installed wired system for much greater cost. Very glad I found this instead. Only problem is if power or internet is out, it becomes nonfunctional, But so does almost everything else electronic we live with.

No wifi on large cameras
Posted by: Crazyfuntime from: on
We had read some great reviews and had friends purchase Arlo so we thought it would satisfy our need for cameras indoor/outdoor. I returned this item when we realized the 2 larger cameras needed to be plugged in and opted to get the 4 camera pack instead. I don't recall seeing anything on the box saying 2 cameras needed to be plugged in.

excellent online camera
Posted by: Derek from: on
The camers battery life last over two months before you have to replace them. Cameras do have a 2 or 3 minute delay, yet they are very useful.

Very easy to set up
Posted by: Nick from: on
This system is very easy to set up and the cameras look and feel like high quality. It's expensive. One of my cameras developed a red tint to the image. Netgear replaced the camera but I had to pay for shipping which I thought was lame as my problem is a known issue and I bought it less than a month ago. I would have had to take down everything if I wanted to exchange at best buy which is also lame. Other than the bad camera it is a wonderful product and it gives my family piece of mind.
