I was surprised by how this security camera. I have tested the Wyze Outdoor Camera and the ring stick up camera and i am a Ring fan but this Camera changes the game. i haven't seen many 2k cameras out there. This has a 160 degree viewing angle. Before i had to have two Ring stick up cameras but now i can just have one mounted. This not only has a ultra wide viewing it is also very smart. It has auto zoom and it detects animals , vehicles, packages, and humans. Mine is mounted on a 3rd floor story outside window ledge and it still detects the difference. the clarity is one of the best also as playback videos are 100% clear and there is no lag. The pictures i uploaded you can make out the detail like what a person is wearing or what make and model of a car is. ect. If my camera was mounted on a first or second floor i could easily tell license plates and faces.
I’m a first time home buyer. I thought someone tried breaking into my house in the middle of the night and I was all alone. That same morning I went to Best Buy and purchased this camera. The three cameras didn’t take long to install and I did it on my own. The quality is great. The picture attached is about 9:30pm. You can do many things including zoom in, make the video brighter, 2-way talk from wherever. If you park in your garage like I do, nobody will ever be able to tell if you’re home or across the country!
I spent several weeks researching smart security cameras before finally purchasing alto security cameras, I wanted to go with something cheaper like ring but after reading dozens of reviews and talking to friends and family I decided to go with the more expensive choice, alto cameras are great, they are the only wireless cameras I could find, the video quality is great and they are simple to install. I believe in most cases you get what u pay for and this is one of those things you are better off spending more and not taking the chance on a cheaper product.
This product has very good quality during the day and night.The cameras work find just the audio is hard to hear when speaking to someone. The battery runs low very quickly on the front camera since so much activity is seen. Hopefully getting the solar panel for the front.
I love the Arlo pro 4 , it’s a great camera and has great video Quality , I love how it zooms in and the camera will move when it text the animal or person moving, the only down fall is the battery life they say it last for 6 months no it will not last that long it depends on how much motion it picks up , the one that I have in my driveway the battery was at 100% 2 days later it’s down to 92%.
Live Feed Delay, Poor Battery Life, Cheap Material
I have not owned cameras from other companies, so I don't know how this product compares to the competition. For the following reasons, I think the Pro 4 is a poor value:
1. Significant time delay in live feed and mobile app notifications:
I bought these cameras because I've had packages stolen from my front door. I've had a couple instances of trespassing that my side camera has caught, but both times I wasn't able to catch the person because there was a 15-20 second delay on the mobile app feed. The camera is within 10 feet of my modem and router, so I am pretty sure this problem is due to outdated wireless technology in the transmitter.
2. Motion detection problems:
The camera in the front of my house goes dead within 2 days because it mistakenly detects motion. I have the motion activity detection area set to a minimal space in front of my door, but if a car goes by or a light flickers anywhere in the field of vision, the camera will send a motion alert. I tried reducing motion detection sensitivity in the app, but it did not help.
3. Battery life:
If you read through the reviews for this camera at any retailer, you will see the battery life is a universal issue. My cameras go dead as soon as 2 days, and in my experience last at maximum 2 weeks with little to no motion detection. Because of this, the cameras are essentially useless when used as wireless devices.
4. Poor quality plastics
I have to regularly dismount and recharge my cameras because the battery life is so short. When I took one down off of its mount, I accidentally dropped it and the camera popped out from its white plastic housing. The inner camera plastic cracked so severely that the camera will no longer snap into place (see photos).
I don't recommend purchasing this camera system. I made the mistake of buying several of them at once, and I regret not returning them as soon as I started having issues.

Absolutely love Arlo Pro 4 cameras. I was able to get a clear picture of the fox that brutally attacked my chickens. The picture was so clear that it looked like the fox was smiling at the camera;but be sure to buy extra batteries and/or a solar panel. Other than that I love, love, love, Arlo Pro 4. This is the best camera system I highly recommend to anyone. Sad about my chickens that I lost but happy I know what killed then. Thank you Arlo Pro

Arlo Pro 4 Review: Simple, Effective and no need for a hubArlo's range of smart home security cameras has grown up so fast. I can remember the days when we had to buy batteries from Bunnings at a high price and
A:AnswerIntegrated Spotlight is enough to light up the area where the camera detects the motion to give colored video quality at night. You can choose to turn it off and let the camera use its night vision for more subtle video recording. ^RM
A:AnswerArlo Pro 4 Spotlight Cameras(VMC4050P) come with an Arlo Smart trial. When the trial expires, you have the option to purchase an Arlo Smart subscription. Without an Arlo Smart subscription, you can still add up to 5 cameras to your Arlo account, live stream, and receive motion and audio notifications. Arlo Pro 4 is not eligible for free rolling 7-day cloud recording.
A:AnswerYes. Bestbuy sells one that is 25ft long for 48-50 bucks or There are solar panels chargers you can purchase separately (3pack for 60ish bucks on Amazon). I’ve had mine up in a busy spot for a month or so I get about 250 motions alerts a day on it and I’m at 88ish percent on battery so you should get more than a month or two out of a charge.
A:AnswerBizarre design. Very easy to pop the battery out, but the charging cable connects to the camera HOUSING, NOT to the battery! So you can't charge the battery outside of the camera. To do that you must buy their very expensive external 2-battery charger for $50. And you'll want to buy at least one spare battery so you only need to get up on the ladder once, to remove the depleted battery and swap in the charged one.
OR, you can buy their solar panel and mount and connect that permanently. No trips up the ladder. But it's expensive - around $80. On the plus side, that has worked very well for me, keeping the battery charged to 100% nearly all the time, and with the panel mounted in a place that only gets sun for about 3 hours per day (in Phoenix).
The accessories seem to never be on sale. They've got you over a barrel. There are 3rd-party substitutes -- just be careful about the quality. I've seen very mixed reviews.
A:AnswerLocal onboard or local HD storage is not an option. A subscription for 1 camera provides 30 days of clip storage at 2K resolution at a modest less than $3 per month cost. Subscriptions for multiple cameras are discounted.
A:AnswerYou probably have a very clear picture within the first 20 feet. At night, that may only be around 15 Feet while using some other light source. Yes, you can see 40-60 feet away, but will only know it's a person, a dog, etc. Unless you know the individual real well, you would not be able to identify who that person is. I don't believe any of the competitors and their cameras are really that good. Just look at the price and the quality of the camera lens. For good night vision, you need a floodlight. The Arlo wired Video Doorbell works excellent by leaving your outdoor lights on all night. You'll get a very good view of someone coming up to your door. But the 160 - 180 degree view is very misleading. It doesn't show any of the sides of your house next to the door. The further out you go, however, the wider the view. The spotlight on the Arlo Pro 4 is very weak. I don't believe it to be sufficient when mounted outdoors.
A:AnswerLooks like you can. It's through the arlo.com website. The first time logging in, it sends a push notification to your phone to authenticate you. Once you're logged in, the interface looks very similar to that on your phone. This includes the ability to watch recordings, as well to watch live. As a reminder, there is a lag with all live recordings. I think it's something like 10 seconds.
