    Could be brighter and the batteries could last longer but it gets the job done.

    These lights work great, the battery life is good, unless you place them in a high traffic area. I have one near the highway in-front of my house and that one is constantly picking up motion and is around 25% after a few weeks , but the 2nd one is in my back yard and the battery life after just a few weeks is down to roughly 85%.

    I got this as part of the daily deal for under $100 so for that price it was well worth it for the batteries alone. I have one light already and just need to find another spot for these.

    Works great with my Arlo security cameras

    I added this wireless lights to my Arlo security cameras and they work great , no wire and battery last long as long as you have the right settings on the app. This package comes with an extra battery and a bridge, that's great for the price. The 400 lumens makes my back yard bright enough at night. The motion detection is adjustable up to 23 feet, the range from the router to the bridge is over 90 feet but make sure you install it at least closer to both lights to avoid any disconnection from your WiFi; the range from the bridge to the light is also over 90 feet. One of my favorite features is when the light detects motion, your Arlo cameras can start recording and you'll get a notification to your phone, also works great with Alexa . Great addition to my security system.

    I do not find these to be as good as the cameras. The battery seems to die a lot quicker and the amount of light is just okay. Better served to purchase a brighter security light system that is solar powered for a lot less money.

    I've an Arlo ecosystem, so adding these when they were on sale was a no-brainer. For the price of $99 for a pack of two, with 3 batteries, (I could only normally buy two replacement batteries for that price) made this an easy choice. The lights are a bit larger than the Arlo cameras themselves, but mount cohesively next to them. They have an array of white LED lights, with varying intensity settings and then 4 colored LEDs in the center. I've set then up to cover the back yard and also the side of my house, motion triggered and linked to my camera, so if they go off, the camera will trigger and record anything that's going on. They run off of their own hub, which is the only let down I can see with these, as I already have an Arlo hub connected to my router, so now I've to have a light hub plugged into an outlet (doesn't need to be connected to your router). That is a downside, but... the upside to the separate hub is that the connection between the lights and the hub is incredibly robust! Really happy with that, so it's at least a decent trade-off! They are brighter than I was expecting to see, after reading some reviews, so that was a nice surprise. I've them on a 30 second timer from the moment of sensing to the moment of turning off again and that's more than adequate for my needs. I get notifications on my phone when they sense motion, which is reassuring and they are working flawlessly in that respect. I've had them installed for about a month so far, and the battery life is still at 92%, which is fantastic. I don't have the light shining all the time, but I do get about 10-12 notifications during the day from birds and cats moving around the property. So very pleased with the battery life so far. You can manually control the lights as well, turn them on, change the beam (spotlight or floodlight) and also change the color of the lights too, however the colors are not as intense as the white light that they put out in floodlight or spotlight mode. So far, very impressed with the lights, better than I expected, and at $99, such a good deal, I couldn't pass them up.

    I was surprised at the brightness of this light. The Arlo app works great to control multiple lights. Also been pleased with battery life. Would purchase again.

    I bought these lights to add to my Arlo camera system. They were easy to install and are pretty bright for battery powered. My only issue is how sensitive they are to the cars going past my house. It would be nice if you could set up a perimeter for motion detection.

    Good Battery Powered Security Light

    It's a bit pricey if all you want is a battery powered security light. However, with this one, you have also a brighter light than most, rechargeable batteries, and smart phone control. Away from home, with your phone, you can turn it off or on, adjust brightness, go with spot or flood light, change colors, and make it flash. If used with Arlo Camera, I've found it's best to turn off phone notifications as you get duplicate notifications.

    Got these lights on a deal of the day sale, and glad I did. Not only are they bright but the battery last a long time. Im able to change color which is a plus added feature to mess with people when I'm bored. Adjusting the brightness is a plus as well I have it set at a low-level so the battery last longer. This is a must for areas where a light is needed but you don't have a circuit to connect to.

    Battery last for a long time. Easy touse, setup and configure. Use it with your smartphone and integrate with any other Arlo device you have. For example, I can program the light to turn on every time a camera catch a movement. It`s awesome!

    We tried a couple motion sensor solar LED lights and was not happy with them. Found these lights, thought why not. Much better than the solar lights. Easy to install, battery life so far so good, except the spare battery may be problematic, need to investigate. Other wise very happy, lit up the dark corners of our yard.

    These security lights are much brighter than expected and integrate so well with the Arlo Pro system. The battery life is outstanding. The security light mounted in my back yard is still at 85% battery after 2 months. The side driveway security light, which gets a real workout, was still at 60% during the same period. They also integrate well with Amazon Alexa and can change colors and flash. I believe there is an audible alert that can be used and can trigger the adjacent camera if needed.

    Nice lights... a little too difficult to set up

    I bought these to go with Arlo lights I've had for a year or so. Getting the bridge connected to my network took WAY too long. I had to reset the bridge 4-6 times, and each time, I'd have to unplug it afterward so I could scan the OCR tag from the app. To tell the truth, I came close to just throwing everything back in the bag and taking it all back. However, once I did get the bridge set up, the lights connected without issue. The lights are quite bright and so far the battery life is excellent. Overall, I'd recommend these but I'd tell anyone to be prepared to spend 30-60mins getting the bridge set up, based on my experience.

    Great addition to my new home

    My wife and I just purchased and moved into a new home and security was the first thing we looked at. Netgear was nice enough to send us a couple of these lights as part of their NETGEAR First Look Review Program and they were both incredibly easy to set up as well as very bright and effective. The installation was as simple as three screws, and since they are battery powered (with rechargeable batteries) there was no need to run wire and find the nearest outlet to my desired location. I just picked a place the light up my driveway as well as my backyard and mounted them. I love that I have been able to control them by my phone as well as with my amazon alexa. I already intend on adding a couple of more lights around the exterior of our house. These are a great first step in our new homes smart security.

    The motion sensor lights have worked well for our backyard. We have the Arlo Pro 2 cameras and it helps improve the video quality at night. We also just use it as a regular light for taking the dog out and has been excellent for that. The one thing I haven't been able to figure out yet is how to sync with the cameras so that it turns on the camera when the light sensor is activated. Also, the light isn't super bright so if you're looking for more of a flood light this might not be the right product. It does provide enough light for the uses I described though. And the battery life has been excellent so far. They have been installed for several weeks and still up near 100%.
