    They'ren't overly bright. They're a breeze to set up. The app isn't remarkable or perfectly intuitive but for the price and ease of set up they're worth the money.

    Works a little too good.... Bought this for my back door going to the yard, only downside so far (as I am trying to figure out) is that when we let the dogs out, the Arlo app goes nuts until we let them back in. I have 4 cameras, 2 lights and the doorbell and all are controlled through the app. All in all a great system.

    Once it's set up it works well

    The hub wouldn't pair, then it crashed when I was factory resetting it. I had to go back to Best Buy and make them give me new hub. Once the the hub was paired with my network the lights set up very easily. The app could be more intuitive (like the cameras), and the lights aren't bright enough to light your whole front yard or anything. The work well enough and for the price per light you get more than you pay for.

    Great Smart Lights for Increased Security!

    Posted

    Arlo Smart Security Lights made my home feel more secure by providing light which be easily controlled through an easy and customizable android app that works flawlessly on my Samsung Galaxy Note 8. These lights can be placed virtually anywhere inside or outside within 100 feet from their bridge. Set up is very easy and straightforward. Just scan the QR code on each light and make sure you are connected to the same wifi network as their bridge and you know the password of the network. An easy way to know if the connection is strong is to turn on the range detection setting with green light flashing showing strong connection and red poor. Performance of the lights has been great so far with great battery life if not used excessively. The light is very bright and I can have the lights do what I want them through the many features in the app. Some of these features include: setting up triggering rules, syncing them with Arlo cameras, on/off switch, motion detection (which works really well), beam adjustment to flood (wide angle) or spot (more narrow angle), change colors, flashing, and others. Also, you can flip a switch in the app for 5 more minutes of extra time. Other great features: the mounts are very nice and can be easily mounted anywhere, batteries are rechargeable and the same type as for the Arlo Pro and Pro2 cameras, weather resistant, scheduling for when you are at home or away, push notification, email alerts, integration with other home devices, and compatible with Amazon Alexa. Just say "Alexa turn on my security lights..." and voila your lights are on. NetGear provides great customer service and the Arlo website provides all the info, you need to install and use cameras and smart lights. Thank you Arlo for making my home security easy, fun, and trustworthy! I will strongly recommend Arlo Smart Security Light for anybody who needs wireless lights in different places inside/outside home. Paul Botica for the NetGear Review Program

    Great upgrade to cheap wireless lights

    Posted

    I've an existing arlo pro camera setup to monitor my side yard. However, I live on a street without streetlights, so it gets really dark at night, making it often hard to see. The solar lights in the ground do very little to help with this, which is what I had been using. I've been slowly adding smart devices to the house over the years. I really like being able to sit on the couch and control things with my phone. I already do these with indoor things like lighting and the thermostat. Adding the ability to control lighting outside really increases the value of the cameras I've out there. My wife no longer worries about leaving on vacation because we can always "check on the house" while we're away, even in the dark. With the camera, we get videos alerts with actual lighting now in the dark. The biggest surprise to me was being able to use the lights for more than just security. I can also set mood lighting by playing with colors -- my toddler loves it. On a practical level, setting the lighting to soft pinks and reds doesn't run my night vision while still providing some much needed lighting to see where we're going at night. If you have those cheap solar lights to lightup your pathway, this is a perfect upgrade to actually get what you want, with the same wireless ease, and much improved usability. I do wish the lights themselves were brighter. However, the value here is pretty good, given a nice security light will cost at least $250, and doesn't integrate at all (and will likely be wired). It may be brighter, but won't be controllable with an app, nor easy to set a schedule, etc. So for the money, this is a great deal. In conclusion, assuming you already have an arlo camera setup, adding lights are a no brainer enhancement. I'm basing my rating on the value added to the setup. If you were looking to buy into Arlo, I still think they are competitive (especially on sale) and definitely still recommend over cheaper solutions. They work as expected and like everything else with arlo, are really easy to setup. I love the wireless aspect of the Arlo system, and almost expect it now -- I'm not running wires into my side yard for this. I received this product for free, in exchange for my unbiased review.

    Arlo Lights for Dummies

    Posted
    TheLowdown

    One of my favorite features is this system is totally rechargeable. @@@@@@@@ I'm weary of anything battery-powered-batteries don't last long and it gets expensive over time. @@@@@@@ Initial setup was pretty straightforward, although a printed quickstart guide would've been nice. The Arlo app on my iPhone had issues like not reading the QR code, but it could've just been an issue with my phone. BASE STATION . Arlo recommends plugging in the "Bridge" at counter height but it works just as well in an outlet near the floor. . ? Small, unassuming profile-I love how it doesn't detract from our home decor. LIGHTS . Easily recharged by connecting the provided USB cable from the light into a wall outlet. . Surprisingly withstands harsh weather like rain and direct sun/heat. . Super bright; can illuminate a large area of an indoor room or outdoor patio. . Can be scheduled for whenever I'm away from home, through the Arlo app. . Alerts me when motion is detected, through text/email. "I'M A DUMMY" NOTES I'm not the most tech savvy so if you're like me, you might think your Arlo Lights don't work. We followed instructions for the Motion Detection Test and Range Finder Test to find the best sensitivity and location. The lights responded well to both tests. But outside of test modes, the lights simply would not turn on. Here's what we finally figured out: . The lights are in automatic power-saving mode during the day! They're lights (duh) so repeatedly walking past them or wildly waving your hands won't do a thing during the day. They're meant to turn on when it's dark. Problem solved. . Another issue was the custom-colored lights and flashing on/off at different speeds. Apparently this is only available for "manual mode" (tapping the ON switch through the Arlo app). So my idea of chasing away evil intruders with a flashing, police-like red light didn't pan out. But for parties, those same features are great alternatives to strobes and disco balls. Bottom Line The system is solid and very well-made, providing functionality, security and peace of mind in a non-obtrusive way. Arlo thought of everything, even theft-deterring window decals. Paired with their cameras, it's like a blanket of protection without having to pay for a monthly security system. I received this product as part of the NETGEAR First Look Review Program.
