Questions & Answers
- QuestionIt has a wire in all the photos. Is it truly wireless? (10 Answers)Answers
The Arlo Q has a power cord only. It's probably about 10 feet long I estimate. It connects via Wi-Fi to your network and clips are sent to the cloud that way. The original Arlo cameras have no wires except for the base station that you attach to your network. Wireless ones are nice and allow them to be easily placed in most any area however every few months you have to change the batteries which can get expensive overtime.

The software continously saves up to 7 days on the free plan. You can download any videos within that 7 days. The paid plan will hold recordings for thirty days continously. In other words its not a 7 day trial, you have access to 7 most recent days via their software.

This camera needs to plug into a power source, but connects to the internet wirelessly. Once you complete the initial wireless setup, the camera will connect to your network automatically, even if you temporarily deactivate it or lose power.

- QuestionDoes this record decent quality through a window? I'd like to add a wired camera to monitor my front yard. The wireless outdoor cameras would gobble batteries. (5 Answers)Answers
During day time, it's OK. During nighttime, you will need to turn of the night-vision and if the front yard is well lit, it will record. However, motion detection may not be reliable if you choose to install in this way. Other option would be to install it under eaves or overhangs, where it is well protected from rain.
