I love these Arlo Lights! I programmed some to automatically turn on when a camera is activated and vice versa. The batteries have yet to need to recharged and it’s been several weeks. Oh, and the ability to change the colors with the Arlo app makes my kids happy @ night.
I have 9 Arlo cameras. I use these 2 lights to supplement dark areas of my backyard. Some features I like are motion detection notifications, color changing and overall ease of use. I wish it utilized the magnetic mount that the cameras use. This was a drawback for me. It does come with 2 premium mounts, but I prefer the magnetic one. Included are 3 batteries, so you’ll have a spare for the light or Arlo camera.
I added this wireless lights to my Arlo security cameras and they work great , no wire and battery last long as long as you have the right settings on the app. This package comes with an extra battery and a bridge, that’s great for the price. The 400 lumens makes my back yard bright enough at night. The motion detection is adjustable up to 23 feet, the range from the router to the bridge is over 90 feet but make sure you install it at least closer to both lights to avoid any disconnection from your WiFi; the range from the bridge to the light is also over 90 feet. One of my favorite features is when the light detects motion, your Arlo cameras can start recording and you’ll get a notification to your phone, also works great with Alexa . Great addition to my security system.
i was very excited to hear about this security light coming out by Netgear. i have been waiting since 2017 when they announced the upcoming release. i have recently moved into a new house that lacked lighting in the backyard and have been looking for something wireless and Netgear answered my calling. i frequent my backyard multiple times a day to take my dog out to do her business. this helps illuminate the grass area so her and i could both see, especially when i pick up her doo doo. the set up was very simple and user friendly. just follow the step by step in app to add devices. i played around with it before installation. the motion sensor will only trigger in dark settings when indoors or at nighttime but you are able to manually turn it on thru the Arlo app or via Amazon Alexa voice. i have also connected the security light to turn on when my Arlo pro camera is triggered in the backyard. nice to have the light on before i get to the very back of my house. i placed the 2nd security light indoors in my living room and i use it as a cool disco light where it flashes and rotates multiple colors in which you could select thru the Arlo app.. it's great when used in conjunction with the rest of my Philips Hue's and Nanoleaf lights to create a nice ambience. i call it my "party lights." :) installation was just 3 screws into my walls, felt sturdy enough to not use the anchors. no connection issues so far. works like a charm. must have for any smart home addict. best of all, i'm so lucky to have been selected for the opportunity to review this new item for free!
Fast and easy to install, east to setup, instructions are straight forward and easy to follow. No wires to run, just plug in the rechargeable batteries (which last six months) and your are good to go. I love mine.
I like these, but here a few notable pros and cons:
- uses same battery as Arlo Pro and Pro 2, which is nice for those of us that have extra batteries.
- Easy set up and coordination with your existing Arlo cameras
- Multiple Color Option
- Allows you to set to "Flood" (wide light spread) or "Spot" (more narrow light)
- NO MAGNETIC MOUNT OPTION - this to me was the biggest flaw and the reason I took off one Star. I would have liked to have the option of using a Magnetic Mount Option for these lights. Magnetic Mounts make it easier to access and recharge the batteries. Plus, Magnetic Mounts allow for easy relocation of the units if you decided to move them to a different location and only require one small screw. The "fixed" mounts that these come with require that you drill three holes and force you to have a more permanent placement of the lights
- Lights are decently bright on standard white but not so much on Color. As I learned from my Hue Lights, this is to be expected with any "color" light but something you should be aware of.
- A little larger and heavier than I expected
- The App only allows you to activate the camera for a 5 minutes or longer. It would be nice to have the option of having it activate for a shorter period of time. I suspect this can be easily fixed with an app update.
If you need small weather resistant lights to help light up the yard, these are amazing. They offer a color output, but in terms of quality the colors are not that great or bright. However, for bright white lights these are great. They come with a recharge battery but you can also get usb power supply which I've done. They also come with the tools needed to mount these. Finally they are smart home capable and work with ALEXA. I have 6 of these to help light up backyard to let the dog out and to help light up a outside storage area.
My true negative about these is it seems the range of the hub is not amazing. I have many smart home products, most needs hubs, and of all the brands - this hub seems to have lowest range.

These are only lights. Not cameras. You can turn them on anytime you want. Or set for motion. But they are very sensative. I've had to completely turn them off during the daytime. I have 2 in my yard. They light up a good portion of my yard enough to see yes they are racoons. Grr. Lol
A:AnswerOne in my driveway is pretty busy only last about two weeks before needing to be recharged. The one in my back yard sees less movement so this one has lasted about a month and a half before needing to be recharged. And recharging it is not the issue, issue is having to take down the camera just to charge it. A bit of inconvenience for me when my one light needs to get recharged every two weeks.
A:AnswerThe cameras use the Arlo hub. These lights come with their own little bridge That you have to use. The bridge plugs in and wirelessly connects to the Arlo hub so it can be a part of your system.
