    Caution: Not Ready for Prime Time

    Unfortunately this is another Arlo product that was not ready to be released when it was. I have a need for this type of system so decided I would try since I already have a number of Arlo and Arlo Pro cameras. This seemed to work fairly well for the first three days but now it is useless because no one that I have spoken to at AT&T has any idea of what I am talking about when I try to activate the SIM card. So basically I got to use the 15 minutes of data that was included and now the camera is inoperable. I have contacted AT&T via a number of methods and no one has helped. Arlo support is also no help. It sounds like no one at Arlo is aware of how the Arlo Go works and they have no idea of how their own data service plans operate. They continue to ask me about the base station that the Arlo Go is connected to (which this camera does not use) and they tell me I have no data left when it clearly shows that I have used 0 out of 120 minutes that I am paying for. I have pages of notes in front of me regarding the many people I have spoken to and chatted with online, but to no avail. Very frustrating. Although I do have a need for this type of system, Arlo will not be the one. It will be going back before my return period ends this week. Think twice before purchasing. This one is simply not ready to be out on the market yet.

    Update to my original review

    I originally gave this a 1 star review (see "Arlo or Barfo") and Best Buy doesn't have a way for customers to edit their reviews. Originally and despite having purchased my first set of the original Arlo cameras in 2015 AND LOVE THEM because they worked so well while we were on vacation in the UK, my Arlo Go purchased May 2018 kept showing "SIM CARD NOT FOUND." I took it back to Best Buy (5-3-18) to get a refund, and they were able to get the Arlo Go up and running. For now, I'm giving it a 4 star review and probably will go with a 5 star review in a few weeks, if it performs as well as my older Arlo cameras that use my wifi at home. I'm placing the Arlo Go in a tree near the entrance to a ranch we have, to see if any scoundrels try to enter our property (we have had theft here before) and I'm hoping the Arlo Go will give me some peace-of-mind for the gate (1/2 mile from our house) as do the original Arlo cameras do.

    Arlo, or Barfo?

    I own 5 of the original Arlo cameras and I have an Arlo app. Prior to my wife and I going on vacation to England and Scotland, I installed the original Arlo cameras at our ranch where we have internet through a wireless tower about 4 miles away. The setup was painless and I was stunned at how good the original Arlo cameras were in not only detecting movement at our ranch in a rural area, but the clarity of the images I saw even while on a tour bus that had wifi as we were traveling to Stonehenge from London. How disappointed I am today as I've been fighting the Arlo Go and trying to get it set up on another property we have with 4 bars of LTE service. The Arlo app keeps stating "SIM card not found" and the Arlo Go is pre-installed with a SIM card. I've built and flown my own FAA approved and inspected airplane, but I can't "fix" this worthless Arlo Go camera because it fails to recognize it's own pre-installed SIM card. The Arlo support website was worthless as well. No chat available and so I tried calling the number for support. On hold for a very long time and the battery in my cell phone went dead! Back it goes the Arlo Go to Best Buy for a refund.

    Completely unreliable!!!!

    Video quality is reasonable but the pros end there. After initial set up and purchase of data plan through netgear, the device functioned for maybe 30 sec. I spent 45 min on the phone with device support during which I was assisted with reactivating the device and was told the plan I had purchased was not showing up in their system. This is despite the fact that I had an email receipt confirming the purchase. I was told I would need to purchase a new plan in order for my device to work and that I would be refunded for my previous purchase if I submitted my receipt. I complied, as I was in desperate need of a working security camera immediately. The camera subsequently functioned for a few hours and then went offline again, leaving me without a functioning security camera at the critical time I needed it. I could not be more disappointed with this device. Absolutely worthless!

    GOOD AND BAD

    Posted
    Harry

    I have had this camera for 8 months now and here is my review: Pros: Wireless connectivity through sim card-no need for wifi nearby One can place it anywhere there is 3G (or better) signal. Adjustable sensitivity for notifications to motion and noise. Works well on that. Two way communication Very loud audio. You can hear anything even from 100m away. Good daylight picture (with average 4G signal) Cons: Bad picture quality if the weather is humid or has even a light fog. The lense gets wet and you cannot see anything. Look at picture on early morning and later that day. Very mediocre night picture (with average 4G signal)

    Great Accessory for Camping and the Outdoors

    I received my Arlo Go recently and took it on two trips. One to the east coast where we took the Arlo Go to our hotel, and one trip camping. It was great having a little extra piece of mind knowing that I could always see my hotel room to keep an eye on things. Camping was a lot of fun as we could see all the critters at night outside of our tent! Was it a monster?! Nope, just a coon trying to steal my food. Pros - light weight, and really good video quality. The connection from the camera to my phone was super fast when fully connected. Night vision was really good as well. Cons - it's bigger than I expected. Audio quality was OK, but I feel like the speakers could be improved. Cell connection was spotty in certain areas, so keep that in mind. I highly recommend getting the tripod holder as well. Makes it much easier to attach it to things wherever you are. I received my Arlo Go in exchange for an unbiased review.

    Decent for limited cellular cameras

    The camera works ok. The solar panel does not keep the camera charged, it will try to maintain the charge. The camera overheats in Phoenix, AZ. The skins make it overheat faster. The camera mounting options are limited even with standard 1/4-20 screw hole. The camera can't rotate 90 degrees. The camera is limited to 720p which makes it hard to make out detail at a distance. The motion sensitivity works ok at best. I have two of these with Verizon cellular.

    SUPER EXPENSIVE to operate, especially if you have a lot of motion. VERY ODD that regardless where you look Arlo does not post pricing until you have to signup for a plan. Remember the Arlo Go needs 2 plans. One wireless and one storage. See pictures below (as of 10/18/2017)
