      Very good, with a few things to consider

      I already had the Arlo camera, which I am using to supplement a traditional CCTV camera. So, this was a natural choice when considering an add on camera. We live in a place you aren't supposed to have installed cameras. Arlo was a good choice for a supplemental camera, Arlo PRO seems to address some of the issues with the original release. The good part about this, is that it is wireless, completely, and can be installed anywhere within range of the base station radio signal. WIth Arlo, you must use their base station and that plugs into your router. This is not a WIFI camera, but the good news is the base has a tremendous range. I have a townhouse, and the cameras are out in my garden, and above my front door, and both communicate clearly with the base. So, this base station thing is not a bad idea, in fact I like it. It is needed because the cameras transmit slowly back, to conserve battery. My biggest problem with the original Arlo (which I bought, returned, and after awhile, bought again) was the battery life and that the batteries are expensive. I've found that I use the original Arlo camera above my front door for alarms for motion between midnight and 5am. But with the Arlo pro, because it is rechargeable, you can have it recording all the time. And you can adjust the recording time beyond the 10 seconds that used to be the limit. WIth recording hundreds of clips in a couple of days (lots of activity in our neighborhood) I get about 5 days between charges. I'm not disappointed with this, because there is so much activity it is recording. Some annoyances are that the motion can be slow to activate, so the thing that triggered it is out of view, like a car driving by. But for the most part, this is a non-issue. I've found that at times, I get some blocky picture on playback, and I don't know if this is because I have the original base vs. the new base. Again, mostly a non-issue. Mostly the annoyances are a non-issue, but you should know of them. The app is one of my most favorite apps. And the features of this system seem to be endless - I'm someone who loves to fiddle with programming and I've been exhausted playing with the settings. So, you can do so many things with programming, it should fit everyone's needs. So, back to the one above my door - I have that set to sound a notifcation on my phone and email me, with activity, midnight to 5am, 7 days a week. And the Arlo pro does the same. But with the Arlo pro, because the battery is rechargeable, I have that in the garden looking out at my cars and walkway, and it records 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, and only sounds an alert after midnight. Again, this does alot. And it is amazing. I've been impressed enough to keep it, and the original one too, but they have different uses for me because of the battery vs. the rechargeable battery. And they both work fine for what they are. These are wide angle lenses, so please know that you will get a wide angle view, but not very long lengths....and the IR light should be bouncing off of something or else if just shooting off into the darkness with nothing to bounce off of, will yield almost no picture. The only thing I would like to see, is a solar charger for the Arlo Pro....which I'm sure they will come up with at some point. Arlo gives you 7 days of free cloud storage, and thank you for that, with my thousands of video clips that I have stored on the cloud, with a rotating delete of the older ones to make room for the newer ones. They do have a cloud storage paid plan for longer storage, but I'll know in 7 days if I need something or not. Of all the wireless cameras, Arlo is my favorite. Without the ability to install something more like a commercial CCTV system on our house, this is as good as it gets for the average homeowner.

      We bought Two sets of Arlo Pro base station-and-4 cameras (that's over $1300.00) One set for home, one for the shop. I signed up for premier service, so we could watch all the cameras, remotely. Both bases stations quit working just out of warranty. They are really cheaply made. You can't get any real help from Netgear support (yeah, they own them) They only have tech support, they don't speak English, and they can't solve problems. They can't even issue a refund for the unused part of the monitoring plan. I have made several calls, and so far have racked up nearly two hours on the phone. Not only did they not issue a refund, but they have CHARGED OUR CARD! According to their website, (https://kb.arlo.com/1215141/How-do-I-change-or-cancel-my-Arlo-subscription-plan) you get a refund by changing your subscription to basic, and they will issue a refund to your credit card in 1-2 business days. I took a screen shot of the message on my account (see below) that stated this. Good thing I did, as I never got an email, nor a refund, and on the phone they tell me they don't give refunds, and that I need to call my credit card company. This is not my first issue with Netgear. I had a poorly performing router, once, too, and was never able to get tech support to help with that, either. Had I known they owned Arlo cameras, I would not have bought them. Do yourself a favor, and try to reach tech support before you ever buy any product. Also see how easy it is to get help with billing issues before you buy. You won't buy this product, if you do. The cameras were really neat for the short time they worked, but it was a very short time for the price we paid, and now, I have to get extra charges off my credit card, and not just the refund we are due,

      Netgear has absolutely no control about their RMA

      Posted

      Guys, If you're thinking to buy Arlo PRO, think twice, because if you need technical support/RMA you will be in trouble (especially if abroad), here's a summary of my case. Summary of the problem: One of the cameras that came in the pack is not syncing with the base. After three resets on the base station I was finally able to connect it. However the camera stays online for 5-10 minutes and then goes offline. I open the back of the camera, remove the battery, put it back again, then it blinks the blue led rapidly, goes online for 5 minutes and then offline again. Because of that, I contacted Netgear's support, here's how my saga started: 1) Contacted support describing the issue and informing that I had an Arlo PRO Product. I spent 1-2 days with back and questions/answers with the technician from Netgear trying to troubleshooting the wrong product (Arlo, and NOT Arlo PRO). Note that I've clearly indicated what was my product in the description of the product. Finally, you identified that it was as hardware problem and indicated a RMA (that would be made in the US). 2) As I live in Brazil and had an imminent trip to the US, we tried to arrange the RMA locally in the US. 4) First response was that a new camera unit would be sent out to my address in the US. At that moment there would be NO need to send the bad unit before, as informed to the Netgear technician. 5) One day later the same guy updated the ticket, he realized that ithe procedure was wrong, and that now I'd need to send the bad unit before receiving the new one. The excuse given was that for some states the previous procedure was the correct one. 6) Considering the above, the RMA was opened by Netgear. However neither I, nor Netgear had any view about what was going on. The Netgear technician put a note on the ticket that the swap of the bad camera by the new one would need to be made 'live' but no one ever acknowledge that, saying "yes", "no" or "maybe". We had not idea if someone was acting on that RMA (neither Netgear, they say that it's not "under their control"). Note that all this started THREE WEEKS before my trip, so there would be plenty of time to receive a feedback (negative or positive). When I arrived at my destination in the US, there were no cameras, no contact, no note, not even a visit from anyone from Netgear. Mission failed, I left the US with the bad camera. 7) Back home, surprisingly I was informed by NetGear's technician that the RMA could be made locally in Brazil! What a surprise! Why this was not told before?? Got an email from rma@netgear.com with instructions in Portuguese (too good to be true). Well, I followed all the instructions strictly sending via postal service the bad unit to the informed address. Again, all went wrong... Three days later, the local post service returned the same bad unit camera with the message 'recipient moved out'. 8) Now the last update Netgear's technician gave me is that the RMA can be made in Colombia (I will not even comment about that, remember that I am based in Brazil) or in the US. Netgear support is a joke, nobody has any idea about how a RMA process works nor control of the process; this is unacceptable for such a "premium" product. The ticket (#27985788) was opened on Jan/26th/2017 and till today I don't have a resolution for my case. Netgear should be shamed for such a ridiculous support.

      I was hesitant at first simply because of the wireless aspects and not sure if you can get the image quality with a wired system. Obviously you will get smoother video quality and higher resolution with a wires system but the Arlo Pro cameras work great in my mind for their purpose. I see so many people complain about such little things that they fail to understand the limitations with wireless technology. The installation of the base station and the cameras was extremely easy to follow and do. Most questions I have had, since i bought the system, were found in Arlo Netgear forums or other websites. The rechargeable batteries are the way to go as they are easy to recharge. I was able to place the cameras in locations that were easy to access from an upstairs window making retrieving and reinstalling easy each time. The half sphere magnetic base is perfect to keep the camera as close to the exterior wall to avoid attracting attention. I would post a screenshot of my setup, but for security purposes I decided not too, so instead here is a single camera shot to give you an idea of the quality you will see. Replay is easy from the cloud and accessing from your phone or tablet is simple and convenient. If you want to make the batteries last longer I would decrease motion sensing to 60% otherwise it records everything that moves. Living on a busy street would make it difficult to maintain a long battery life.

      Late to start & non motion-based recording

      First off, the Arlo Pro is worlds better than the older, regular Arlo cams. Those things were just plain bad. These Pro cams are good, but still not great. I'm still ticked off that the "talk" function DOES NOT WORK AT ALL! if it did, I would have given another star. The other problems, for me, anyway, is that the Pro still doesn't always start recording immediately upon motion so you only catch the tail-end of the action. The other beef I have is that the motion recording is not based on continual motion sensing but is only 'triggered' at the first motion it detects and then only records for a set period of time (which you can adjust between about 10 seconds and a couple of minutes, if I recall correctly). What I prefer, and am used to from using the app Manything is that the camera continues to record as long (or as little) as there is motion being detected. In other words, if the camera detects a cat running across your porch, it's only recording for 5 seconds. But if it's someone creeping around, checking several windows and doors, you capture the entire event. Other than that, the battery life seems to be reasonable (going on month 2 with still 90+ percent on the batteries), and the app is pretty good, although some parts are not overly intuitive (like finding where you can set the record length). Notifications do pop onto my phone rather quickly, but often when I open the app immediately after receiving a notification, it takes quite a bit of time (20 secs?) for the captured video to show up in the app...by then the scoundrel(s) could have amscrayed! All things considered, for the immense price you pay for this setup, all of those little bugaboos should have been eliminated so I would not recommend this to a friend.

      Good for monitoring or intercom use

      I currently have 6 of these cameras in and around my house which I mainly use for viewing purposes when I’m away from my home or to check on my children when I’m outside doing work. The battery life is great. The picture quality is pretty good but could be improved but not bad overall. The two way speaker works very well aside from the annoying 3-5 second delay which you’ll miss many responses from people if you don’t make them aware of the delay. The motion and sound detection alert work like you’d expect from a low budget camera picking up some false movements and sounds as well as missing some movements and sounds all together especially when they occur further from the camera. Also when movement and sound does occur the camera has a delayed response to start recording which will cause you to only pick up the middle or end of what caused the movement or the sound and for things that move through the camera sight faster it won’t even pick them up at all when the recording alert kicks in which you’ll check back on your video feed alerts only to see nothing at all which will happen quite frequently. The night vision works very well too. In short it’s a very good monitoring device and a very good intercom system but if you have a need for a very good security system you might want to spend a bit more money.

      Arlo Pro, a big thumbs down!

      I purchased the Arlo Pro and Arlo Pro 2 and returned both. First and worse problem I had with Arlo Pro & Pro 2 was that when looking at or playing back video it would constantly cut out or freeze up on me. Second, the Geofencing wouldn’t work, in that it wouldn’t recognize when I was home and disarm itself and would have to manually disarm it. Third, the speaker on the Arlo Pro sounded like I was whispering to whoever I was talking to yet the speaker on the Arlo Pro 2 worked great. Fourth, the Zoom is worthless on both the Arlo Pro & Arlo Pro 2 in that picture quality gets worse as soon as you start zooming in. Fifth, Arlo customer service sucks. I don’t know what nationality the customer service person was that I was helping me, but I couldn’t understand a word he was saying because of his strong accent and called four different times and every agent had the same strong accent and as a result was not able to resolve the any of the issues I was experiencing. In a nut shell, if Arlo could resolve the issues that I was having in addition come up with a better more secure camera mount and lower the price, it would in my opinion be one of the best wireless cameras out there. But until then I am not going to waist my time or money on a product that doesn’t work as advertised.
