    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.

    Arlo didn't drop the ball, they plum forgot the ball. I have the cameras and they perform great but these lights are an embarrassment. Inconsistent, unreliable and over priced. I think its time to upgrade to RING.

    Poor motion detection and very little light. This a very expensive nightlight. Motion detection not anywhere near as accurate as my Arlo Pro camera. I bought as an add on to my Arlo Pro camera system. I gave it one star as it is a great idea but does not work as advertised.

    I returned my item. I have a middle size back yard so I placed the flood light on the side where I didn't have an Arlo camera. The other side of my yard I had a camera and a normal back pouch light. Since I had the regular pouch light and the Arlo flood light on the other side, the flood light would not work properly. Since the flood light was facing the pouch light, the flood light would come on. I even moved the flood light over a lil, and it still would not come on. If seem as if the flood light only works it your back yard is completely light free. I guess I could have just not use the regular pouch light and got another Arlo flood light, but at that time the lights just came out and it was expensive. Maybe Arlo fixed the problem by now.

    Arlo Lights for Dummies

    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.
