Doesn't live up to the marketing
Owned for less than 1 week when reviewed.
Even though this camera is marketed as 4K, and it has the right number of pixels to qualify as 4K, the quality of it's imagery is far below what I expect from a 4K camera. Three images illustrate my point. The first is a 4K video screen-shot from my Samsung S9+, the second is a 4K video screen-shot from the Arlo Ultra 2, and the third is a 2K video screen-shot from the Arlo Pro 4. I expected the Samsung quality, but instead I get something that is just barely a little better than the quality of the Pro 4. Bottom line, I don't think the Ultra 2 is worth $100 more than the Pro 4.

The quality of the picture is better than the pro three that was replaced. Oh it doesn’t last six months unless you have it on the simplest settings but the battery definitely lasts a lot longer than my pro three was. Easily hooked up to the smart hub that I have. The color night vision is awesome you can see what color the vehicle is going by or what color the clothing is someone is walking by even the dog or in my neighbors case the cat they walk. Very happy with the upgrade. Two of my cameras did not fair weather this winter.
In the picture below is a view of the camera top one is pro three bottom one is ultra two.
One other thing that I like is the fact that I can add someone else to keep an eye on the house.
These Arlo 4 K Cameras are clear and are definitely a deterrent. Sometimes they go offline for no apparent reason but usually recover quickly. I have additional solar panels that I purchased with the cameras because I didn’t want to change batteries. I highly recommend doing that.
Arlo Ultra 2 comes with dual-band and better wireless rangeThe original Arlo Ultra (check our review out) is already one of the best wireless security cameras out there with 4K HDR video recording capability. However, if you live in a large house without a good mesh router system, you are going to
A:AnswerThe Arlo Ultra 2 will come with a free trial to Arlo Secure. After the trial expires, you will have the option to purchase an Arlo Secure plan.

A:AnswerIf you have internet and wifi service at the location where you plan to mount the camera, then any of the Arlo Essential camera series or the Arlo Pro 4 would be a good option for you. These camera models do not require an Arlo base station for them to work as they connect through wifi. If you are looking to get a camera that uses cellular service to get internet, we suggest to check Arlo Go camera. ^RM
