Here are my thoughts on the device. 5 Stars for Setup - can't get any easier than this. 5 Stars for complete wireless setup - absolutely no wires 3 Stars for wireless distance good reception, works well up to 50-60 feet, after that connection drops quickly so does video quality. 3 Stars for video quality, I would not call high-definition 1 Stars for field of view - states 130, but real world view is 90 two cameras barely cover 180 - see pictures 1 Stars for dependable recording - you must have a good internet connection that is up all the time - ONLY records to the internet, nothing local, if Internet is down, so is your monitoring. 0 Stars for other use - these cameras will only work if you have an arlo account, internet access, and the cameras connect to the base. 0 Stars for motion recording - motion recording only sets off when action crosses FOV, delay from motion to start of record, usaully equals activity has already moved out of FOV, or just get few of activity. 0 Stars for more than 5 cameras - you can only record to the cloud, more than 5 cameras you have to pay subscription. 0 Stars for monitoring - cannot actively monitor without running the batteries down very quickly. NO 4 camera constant monitoring, unless you want to spend $25 on batteries every 2 days. 0 Stars for simutaneous monitoring and recording - if you or someone else is viewing the camera feed live, it will not record any motion detection, the viewer would need to select record. 1 Stars for logging and viewing - takes about 2 minutes to get to live video feed. Far to slow to catch something in realtime 0 Stars for stated battery life - based on using the lowest video setting and very limited motion detection (5 mins per day)- no one ever would buy a HD camera only to reduce it the lowest settings. 4 Stars for Indoor Battery life, these perform well in a constant temprature. 0 Stars for Outdoor Battery perfomance indication, well below freezing tempratures, batteries will quickly report low or out. Must climb ladder, and re-seat batteries, to reset low battery warning. 2 Stars for Outdoor Battery life, iinstalled in Mar where temps -0 Batteries have lastest 1 month in a camera effected by pet traffic. 2nd camera seems to be holding up ok, 2 months. I have tried multiple WiFi Cameras, these work comparitively well, much easier to setup and use. After trying many WiFi cameras was going just bit the bullet and get a lorex, swan, or q-see system, then saw the Arlo. Wish I just went with my original choice of a wired system. This system is perfect for the NON-serious security monitoring. Not meant to replace a video recording system.No, I would not recommend this to a friendSorry, there was a problem.

GREAT PRODUCT|Posted .
I bought these cameras for my vacation condo in Florida which doesn't require constant video recording like i have at my primary residence. These do a great job and allow me to check in while I'm away. Running wires in a condo would be a nightmare. These cameras are completely wireless, which is perfect for my needs. I like the fact that when i leave i can setup the cameras on their magnetic mounts inside the condo and when i am staying there i can remove them. Reduces the Creep factor (don't like being watched in my own home). I can't give you solid feedback on battery life yet i haven't had them long enough but initial impressions are very good. Issues-Recording on motion sometimes doesn't trigger fast enough. Eg. when i walk out of my elevator into the condo the system snaps a picture and emails to me along with starting video recording(10-60 seconds) and sometimes nothing is there. i am hoping this will be fixed with a software update . 8/10 times it works perfectly. Setup is super simple. Image Quality - 7.5/10I would recommend this to a friendSorry, there was a problem. Please try again later.

After searching for a complete wireless home monitoring system I FINALLY came across the Arlo system online on their website. I had no idea that the system was sold in stores until I went to Best Buy in search of something else. I bought the 4 pack camera set that came with the hub. This was the easiest system I have ever set up. It took maybe 10 minutes to sync the 4 cameras. The hanging brackets are magnetic which makes hanging them and adjusting them as well. I have only had them around a month so I am not sure about the battery life yet. I have it set to send texts and emails on a set schedule when motion is detected in which it then automatically records 10 seconds. You can also go online or the app and view and take still shots. I can't tell you how much I love this system!!!I would recommend this to a friendSorry, there was a problem. Please try again later.

Up And Running In Less Than Ten Minutes!
Up And Running In Less Than Ten Minutes!Posted .
I wanted a security system for my home but was a little intimidated by having to run wires inside and outside my house. So I was thinking that a wireless system may be the way to go. I was concerned that the quality would not be good enough for my needs. The Arlo wireless system from Netgear takes all those worries away! When I first received my unit the first thing that I noticed was the Arlo logo…a bird that has the wireless logo as its wings – very clever! I unpacked the unit and had a base station, power cord, Ethernet cable, 4 magnetic wall mounts, mounting screws and anchors, and cameras with batteries. The quick start is nicely illustrated and will get you up and running very quickly. The first thing you need is the Arlo app…you can search for it in your respective app store on scan the QR code in the guide. You then have to hard wire the base station to your router. You plug in the power adapter and turn on the power button. The base station is very light at 11.5 oz. At waiting a minute or two, the power and Internet LED will turn green and now you are almost ready to start playing with your new cameras. You launch the Arlo app (or you can use your computer) and select New System Setup. You put in an email and password to setup your Arlo account. You now put in 4 CR123 batteries into each camera. You bring each camera within 1-3 feet of the base station to complete the sync process. You press the Sync button on the base station and wait for the Camera LED to blink green and then press the Sync button on the camera. A blue LED on the will blink rapidly and then go out – a green Camera LED on the base station will let you know the camera is now ready. Launching the app will bring up the views of the camera with a play triangle in the middle of each screen. Pressing the button will activate the video feed on the camera. You can connect up to 5 cameras for free (nice as some companies charge you for this service) with 1 GB of cloud storage. You can only login in from one device at a time. I was amazed at how easy the setup was to get the cameras running! At the bottom of the app you will see four selections: Cameras, Library, Mode and Settings. Cameras is where you can see your video feeds – you can activate one or all of the cameras. Library is when you will see a calendar with the dates of your recordings. Mode is where you can set up a schedule for when you want the cameras to record motion. Mine had a default setting of 8:00 AM – 4:59 PM Monday-Friday to record motion and all other times had motion turned off. It is very easy to change any of the settings by just dragging the time sliders. Settings is where you can change the settings of your system. You can adjust the sensitivity of the camera and the length (from 10 seconds to 120 seconds) of the recording once motion has been detected. You can also change the names of your cameras and the base station. You can also adjust the orders of the cameras as they appear in your feed. Once motion is detected, your iPhone will get an alert telling you. I recently got an Apple watch and now the alert also appears on my wrist! How cool is that! The video quality of the cameras are simply stunning! HD quality at 720p is amazingly sharp – I guess I didn’t expect such quality in a wireless camera. I tested both indoors and out and got good results in both. I would recommend you downloading the manual from the Netgear website. It gives you much more information on all aspects of the camera – for example – “For best results, the path of expected motion should cross Arlo’s field‐of‐view and not head directly into or away from the camera. For example, if you want to detect motion near a couch, place the camera to the side of the couch, rather than above it or opposite it.” It has a great diagram that shows that the detection zone for motion is 20 feet at maximum and 5 feet at minimum. There a motion detection test feature that that will flash the camera’s LED amber when motion is detected. You can also adjust the motion sensitivity of the camera. This is something that helped me. I had a camera pointed at my driveway, but it keep alerting me for motion whenever I car passed on the street in front of the driveway. I adjusted the sensitivity so that it would only detect motion in the driveway and not the street. The directions also walk you through how to set up a schedule to have the camera record motions at a certain time – for example Monday-Friday from 9-5 when you may be at work. I didn’t want it recording on the weekends during the day when I was on my tractor mowing the yard! It is very easy to click record everything on motion if you want to supercede the schedule. Night vision works very well for short distances. I have one camera directed on my front door and at night I can easily see what’s going on. However, the camera I have on my driveway, because it covers a larger area, is pretty much useless at night. The directions say the best height for the camera is above seven feet – the driveway one is about 15 feet up and covers a large area. I have two suggestions for Netgear for this product. I appreciate that the system comes with four magnetic mounts. This will allow you to mount them in different locations and move the cameras as needed. However, since they only attach to the back of the camera and the mount is not completely round it limits the angles you can get with the cameras. You can only attach the camera to the mount at the back of the camera (quite firmly I might add). It would be nice (and probably an engineering nightmare) to make it so that they could be attached at the top and bottom as well. Also, instead of including the four half-round mounts – maybe include one of their adjustable mounts (VMA1000) or a table/ceiling/wall mount (VMA1100). As of June 2015, the shipping times on these from Amazon are 1-3 months! My only other concern about these cameras is the battery life. They only record when they detect motion so battery life won’t be wasted. I’m hoping that I can get up to 6 months on a set of batteries. I’ll update in about six months and let you know how I did! I realize that in the colder months the battery life will not be as good. The basic Arlo account gives you seven days of secure cloud DVD storage (up to 1 GB) and support for up to 5 cameras. You can upgrade if this basic service does not meet your needs. These cameras are also weatherproof. They have already survived a couple of good thunderstorms will no ill effect. I hope they will do equally well in a western New York winter. This is an amazing home video security system! I am so glad that I found a wireless system that meets my needs, has a ton of features and has a great app and website. I mean it when I say that the setup and features on this system is amazing!

Expensive, Unreliable & roblematic Customer upport

Are you excited to have completely wire-free camera system? I was too, until of course I was spending $40-$50 every other month on new batteries. Since using about 2-3 sets of batteries I decided on buying some authentic rechargeable batteries (made for arlo cameras only). They were excellent and couldn't of been happier with my $90 purchase for 16 rechargeable batteries. Since using these cameras about 8 months I've discovered the motion detection works, sometimes too often but always too late. They won't even triggered when I'm standing directly in from of camera. So, after reading how they work, these cameras only detect new objects coming in to the screen from sides. Weird but seemed like a cheap software. But, my main concern is when checking these motion notifications or the live view via Arlo mobile app. Every single time I attempt to view these cameras in live view or check out the motion alerts is that the camera can't stay connected more than 5-8 seconds, as you can see for yourself in my photos. Not only do I seem to have connection issues with the app, the cameras are literally only 15-25 feet away from the base station. I just deal with the issues every day and try not to let it bother me, even after 2 or 3 attempts. No customer should need to worry, especially if there's someone lurking around the home. The worst thing to encounter would be connection failures if something were to happen and you missed it. Lately these Arlo cameras haves been OK since the new batteries, but the newest issue is that I've now been plagued with the pink camera issue. A well known issue from Arlo support blog. I just randomly got it and luckily I am still under 1 year warranty and they were able to send a replacement and told me that we waived shipping costs for your replacement, LOL. Wow, I'm feeling blessed up to this point. But wait there's more. After receiving the replacement camera fairly quickly from FedEx, I open the package and see multiple scratches and dents on the outer casing of my new replacement from Arlo. I thought for sure they would send a new camera, but I was 100% wrong. I'm simply upset to say the least and after doing plenty research on outdoor cameras, Arlo was definitely not the 1st or initial pick, but we decided to go with Arlo during a holiday deal for about $350 ish. Like the saying goes "cheap is expensive". But, actually Arlo pro products are simply outrageously priced. Now the saying doesn't make sense, or are big corporations again taking more advantage of the general population. Oh I forgot to add that when I opened a case regarding my pink camera, I didn't hear anything back for almost two weeks & then decided to check up and get the status. After calling in it was discovered someone had closed my case and the issue was somehow resolved. Man, good thing I got back to them before my 1 year manufacture warranty expired. Be careful and do your research. That means checking reviews on multiple websites, not just the websites Arlo pays people to submit reviews on. Overall, I'm now reluctant to return my new camera for a refurbished one. I guess I have no choice this time now that I'm in the hole for more than $400 with everything. But, I certainly have a choice next time when shopping for outdoor surveillance systems and I'll likely disregard any/all Arlo coupons or deals at this point. No more headache and I work too hard for my money to just spend it on same products year after year. I just want a camera to last me at least 3-5 years before having to upgrade. All the best to you folks. PS) Do not put a review unless you've taken the product home and used it for at least a few months.

All that I hoped for!

After doing quite a bit of research on the Arlo system, between articles and non-bias reviews, I figured I'd go for it, because why not? You can return it if you hate it anyway... My husband, who is NOT tech-computer handy was a bit leery of helping me set this system up. He just told me a few minutes ago that he was surprised and very happy that it went so well and wasn't difficult at all. About the battery life - I've only had it set up for a day, however these cameras are activated by motion. If you have the camera pointing somewhere where there will be motion ALL DAY LONG then you will defiantly drain the batteries. You can also set motion sensitivity, so for instance, if you have plants moving in the breeze, you can change the sensitivity to essentially filter that out so it doesn't record when the plant is moving. So, if you are using it like we are, to detect and record motion when there isn't usually motion, then you'll be fine battery wise according to the many other reviews on other websites. Also, the other reviewer that said the batteries are $10 each, clearly doesn't know how to do a google search for products. You can get these batteries for about $1 each when you buy in bulk - each camera takes 4 batteries, so yeah, it will be $4 to replace them every 4-6 months, but that's not bad considering you didn't have to hire someone to drill holes in your house and run wires and all that. Cloud storage - the fact that this system doesn't require the use of a DVR or computer is cool. At first, I thought that it was weird and I would want more control over my own storage space, but it's actually really nice to not have to deal with another device. The system does require you to hook up it's wifi hub, but it's sleek and small and just plug it into your existing system and go. I will add though, that my existing routers are in the basement though, and when I hooked this up initially in the basement, by the time I got the cameras outside and to the back of my property, the signal wasn't strong enough. When I brought the hub onto the ground floor it worked absolutely fine. The pipes and other metals in the basement aren't too kind to wifi. Overall my household thinks this is great, my non computer savvy husband finds the app easy to use and so do my kids. I am very glad I made the purchase!I would recommend this to a friendSorry, there was a problem. Please try again later.

Incredibly easy to setup, function is lacking.

I read a lot of reviews about these and most of them were really good, a lot of people recommended this product. I purchased it because of the ease of installation, I'm not a handyman by any stretch of the imagination but these took me 30 minutes to setup 3 cameras around my house. Great picture quality, and easy to use the app and the notifications are almost instantaneous. However, it doesn't always work. I have a camera set up pointing at my driveway, my front door, and my back door. The first morning after I set it up, I walked out the front door and to my car in the driveway, walked passed two cameras, and neither camera recognized any movement, but throughout the day I got multiple notifications about cars driving down the road. My cameras are set up perfect, so it's not that, it just doesn't work all the time. I pulled in my driveway and walked up to my front door, and nothing went off. A solicitor came to my front door, nothing went off. I let my dogs out the back door, nothing goes off. It seems to be very picky on when it goes off or not. It has no issue alerting me my neighbor left for the store, but doesn't alert me when someone is at my front door or pulling in my driveway or walking in my yard. I messed with the sensitivity settings and that did not help, only received more notifications about cars going down my street. Good idea, but not perfect.No, I would not recommend this to a friendSorry, there was a problem. Please try again later.

These are great quality cameras! The only reason I took off a star is because you have to recharge or replace the batters every 3ish weeks.
