      Just what I needed

      Posted

      After reviewing several different security cameras I decided to purchase the Arlo refurbished WiFi wireless system. I love it !! Out the box, no assemble was required, just attach to mount, no wires to worry about, and the Arlo smartphone download makes it so much easier to monitor. I only gave it 4 stars because it's advertised as having 5 mounts included , 4 magnetic indoor mounts and 1 outdoor mount, When my package was delivered it only had the 4 indoor magnetic mounts, There Was NO outdoor mount included. When I contacted Best Buy customer service about this issue, They told me I would have to send the whole order back and they would re-send me another order, Which I thought was horrible and alot of trouble, I don't understand why they just could not send out the missing mount, Therefore Best Buy dropped the ball on that. But as far as Arlo and the security camera I will at this point rate them Excellent. Best Buy needs to improve how they treat their customers. I eventually had to order additional outdoor mounts. The magnetic mounts that are included are strong but I wouldn't chance using them outdoors.

      Poor Software!!!!

      Great idea poor software! Pros: Completely wireless Easy Setup Cons: Too many limitations 1.Battery Replacement (if using the defaults will last 4-6 months, which is ok but you only get 10 seconds of recording once motion is triggered) 2. Cost of batteries 3. Buggy software, sometimes difficult to connect to and is very slow 4. Hub uses wifi n technology to connect cameras instead of the much faster AC 5. Warranty is only 1 year for such an expensive product! 6. Support for updates is slow!!! 7. No local recording, which means you have allow Netgear (Arlo manufacturer) access to your network and store your video in the cloud, which means privacy can be an issue! 8. Can be easily stolen! There is nothing to prevent someone from stealing the device. 9. Only 5 cameras allow per free cloud account then you have to pay. 10. Only 7 days worth of recording allowed per free account or you have to pay! too many limitations!!!!!!

      Got robbed - Arlo didnt record

      Posted
      Rosie

      I have had these cameras for 2 months now. On Saturday i was robbed and Arlo didn't record a second of it. These cameras do not pick up motion unless it is incredibly close to the sensor. The worst part of this system is honestly the customer service. I was on the phone last night with Arlo for 2 hours where someone with poor English tried to test my camera. After 2 hours they agreed the camera was faulty, and agreed to a replacement camera. Guess what, they will only send a camera when YOU the buyer ships the defective camera to their warehouse, and YOU PAY the shipping cost. Only after this they will contemplate whether to send a replacement. Save your money and go with a better system. This is the first review i have ever written, but wanted to raise this in case Arlo sees this / to save other buyers the trouble. I am stuck with a faulty camera and my property stolen.

      Easy set up, works as promised

      I'll start by saying I'm not the most "tech savvy" person and I deeply appreciate when gadgets are easy to set up. The instructions were clear and, once set up, everything worked perfectly. I was able to login, see videos, get alerts, etc. I love that these videos go to a cloud where I can then download them locally for further storage if I ever need to. My husband describes the app as "wife-proof" meaning there isn't alot of trouble-shooting or fidgeting, just open the app and IT WORKS! Cameras are good quality and give a clear picture, I love that they're great at night as well. The only thing is the battery life since these are wireless. If you will be accessing these cameras frequently or live-streaming, the batteries will die faster. I recommend getting rechargeable back-ups if that is your desired use.

      Caveat emptor

      Buyer beware! First year of having this system was ok, occasional connection issues but nothing major. Then, what seemed to be days after the warranty ran out, they send a software update which you have no choice but to install. One by one, as my cameras run out of juice and I replaced the batteries, they won't go back online. I have been nothing but patient with Netgear customer support. They have replaced my cameras numerous times and I have spent hours with them over the phone and via email over the last couple of months. No one can fix the problem, they just keep passing the buck and telling me to restart my system. When I ran out of patience and asked for a replacement system or my money back, they disappeared. In time this system will cause you major grief. It's basically a $400 paper weight. STAY AWAY DO NOT BUY.

      First, I bought the refurbished option. It shipped fast and everything was in new conditions. It even shipped with batteries. As for the Arlo itself, it has limited capabilities. The "up to 25 ft" motion sensing is closer to 5 ft than 25. It recommends mounting 7 feet high and pointing slightly down, but if you think about that, it limits where you can put it. These cameras are great for little city lots or in the house, but if you want them around your property, you are going to find it difficult to get them to trigger. Battery life is terrible on these, even with the image quality dialed back. They take expensive camera batteries. If you try any off-brand or rechargeable, it voids your warranty.

      Bought this camera January 19,2018 $213.98 warranty only good for 90 days guaranteed to last I was told. Never bought anything refurbished before and never will. Camera stop working I swear on the 91st day. It Stops connecting and when I do connect it the batteries are dead, twice it’s done it and I won’t put anymore batteries in it, because if you bought Arlo batteries before u know why, very expensive.I have four other cameras that’s not refurbished. And water has gotten inside one of those. I was enjoying arlo but no longer.

      Dishonest item description

      The description of this refurbished camera talks about the quick setup, the motion detection, the cloud service, etc. What it doesn't say is that none of that is possible without all sorts of equipment that is not shipped with it and costs extra, like a base station, an ethernet cord, an AC power cord for setup, etc. So your $80 camera purchase is just for the camera - you'll have to fork over quite a lot more to get it working. I am just gobsmacked by this and am taking it back for a refund.
