    Buy on sale only

    Was on 1 day sale ($99) so I could afford to buy it. Otherwise at around $279, it was not worth it. The features are basic and has it's own wifi bridge (plug in outlet). The biggest drawback is you can only control on 1 device (phone). I set it up on my wife's phone, but cannot set up on my phone. If there was an incident where we either of us need to turn on the lights in an emergency, II would have to call my wife. Even my smart lights, cameras, etc can be controlled from multiple devices using their app and passwords. This makes no sense and for that reason I would not buy another set. I'm sure Ring has a better setup than these Arlo lights.

    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.

    I have 2 ARLO Security Systems installed and qty 2 security lights and the installation was just minutes. I purchased 2 additional security lights and thats when my troubles started. The lights were synched to the bridge but would not update to the latest software rev so they wouldnt react to motion. I was on the phone 3 times with ARLO tech services and each time we failed to get my lights to work. I returned the lights, purchased a second light add on kit and same issue.

    these lights work well when they are close to the base station but are intermittent when 30+ feet away and there is a long processing delay with the farther one. The motion detection is good and they send you notifications via phone. If you plan on keeping them close to the hub then they are worth the buy but if you need lights in various areas around the home I’d recommend going a wired route.

    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.

    Good if you are in the Arlo Ecosystem

    I like the fact that this integrates with the other Arlo devices and also does have the motion sensor as well. However, it's over priced for what it has to offer. If it was in the apple homekit eco system or the alexa ecosystem it would make total sense

    Not worth the money

    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.

    Good device. Could be a brighter light though. Easy install but difficult to control and figure out.

    Adding multiple deterrents is best when securing your home or office.
