    Tried Ring first and had nothing but problems. The only thing that is a pain is having to reset password without notification. It will log you out and not tell you to reset password.

    I was a little worried about these cameras after reading some reviews but I can honestly say I have no regret about buying them. The only con I can say is that I have one high traffic camera that I constantly get notifications for through out the day for motion even when I lower the sensitivity drastically. But when it's all said and done I'll deal with it to have the ease of mind knowing it'll catch anything suspicious that's happening.

    This is my first security camera system. Set up was a breeze. Clarity in video is great even set on battery saver mode. Only downfall seems to be the lag in notifications from the time motion is sensed.

    Delayed notifications 20+ sec on fiber optic high speed internet. Bad intercome software. With out upgrades you cant use half of the advetised features. In the handbook no explanation except basic installation. Not happy with the 1080 model. The money difference between this and the 720 not worthed. Picture quality is not visible. Got it just because the intercome which is hard to use. Example : like using a walkie talkie with one button. The outside person never knows when he can start answering. For sure this needs improvement.

    I connected the two high definition cameras in front of my home. The cameras work great and give a good picture even when it is dark out. The only problem with the camera is the amount of notification. Using the battery you can't limit the area of the camera so you get too many notices. If you hook them up to an electric outlet them you can limit the notice area.

    Great field of vision. Motion detection is very sensitive though. Get several false notifications from bugs or trees blowing in the wind. Other than that no complaints. Easy to mount outside. Hold up to the elements.

    These cameras are amazing. They are easy to install and set up. The video quality is good in all lighting situations. The app is user friendly. Sensitivity can be adjusted for motion. There is a slight delay with notifications, however, I have satalite internet, so it could be related to that. I am very pleased with my purchase and highly recommend.

    High Traffic Area? Get the Pro 2 (instead of Pro)

    I first purchased a Arlo Pro for my shop (located in a high traffic area). The power cable free and the network cable free setup couldn't have been easier. The only problem was batteries draining almost daily (and a notification every time someone walked by my shop - 200 times a day). I returned it and got the Pro 2" (that stores 2-4 weeks worth of constant surveillance on a monthly charge). This is waay better than other makes / models (I've used Swaan for a long time). They're ok - this is waaaay better. Worth the extra $$

    I am a fan of Nest products because the quality & functions it uses. Purchased Arlo because of the good reviews AND 7 days free cloud storage. #1 - depending on where you place the camera, you will constantly get notifications in which there is no way to turn them off or at least adjust the motion. It is having a hard time identifying between the curtain blowing & our dog roaming the house. So notifications constantly goes off. #2 - the Live feed does have 3-5 second delay. I like it within a second like my Nest camera. #3 - the base station had to go thru some sort of update so I could not figure out where does it update from. Turning it on, turning it off. Had to set up the app on the phone and thats where it tells you theres an update for the base. So it is not as simple as pressing "sync".

    The 1080 cameras are very clear and capture a large portion of area. The app is very easy to use and you can set up any mode you want with any configuration of cameras. The deception is the activity zones. You are led to believe you can isolate an activity area to either ignore or view only, but what they don't tell you until you get deep into the instructions and community user posts is that to do this the camera must be plugged in. So on the wireless camera outside my house (main road) I can't isolate the street to ignore it so the camera doesn't capture every car that drives by. If I want to pay the extra fee I can have access smart notifications to turn off vehicle detection but it's not always accurate and I don't want to have the system miss something because it thinks it's a car. Smart notifications is not wholly accurate. This is a wireless camera system and all of the features should be operational wirelessly. How do I plug in a camera that's attached to a tree???? Activity zone works great on my Arlo Q which is a plugged in camera. Also, when the power goes out the cameras die - no battery backup? I haven't figured that out yet. Customer Service from Netgear is impossible to get through to, their chat window spins and never connects you to someone. Based on the cameras, the ease of the app I'd give it 5 stars. BUT FOR the activity zone and back-up battery problems which I consider big issues, and the lack of support from Netgear, both which I give 2 stars, I'd still recommend the system - with an * attached

    The hardware of OK, but the software is NOT

    If you value your sanity, you will look elsewhere. Everything was ok with the Arlo system until Netgear introduced an update and broke nearly every aspect of the app as well as the browser versions. Just a quick rundown: You can no longer view full screen video in Safari, you can't update the picture before changing activity zones (if you move the camera, you will have no way to adjust these zones). The battery indicators are now no fewer than 3 clicks into EACH camera, Notifications don't always work. Recording to the library doesn't always happen. Some times, the cameras will just stop sending these notifications completely (and the only solution is to re-sync them). Re-syncing them doesn't sound like a bad thing unless you have mounted your cameras high up and this requires a ladder. I have had to do this 4 times in 4 months. Tech Support is useless. They are overseas and will not be able to help you with problems. They are now replacing 2 of my cameras, but the form I had to fill out online doesn't work in any Mac browser (FF, Chrome, Safari). It also doesn't work in iOS. There's now a possible class-action against Arlo. Please save yourself the trouble and look elsewhere and read the Community Forums on the Arlo website before buying.

    Simple set up, ease of use and great quality

    We absolutely love this Arlo security camera system. From it's easy set up, great picture/video quality, to convenience to move, add, charge and adjust within the smartphone/tablet app, I really feel like this system is one of the best on the market. Free cloud storage is an added benefit however I also opted to plug in a USB drive to the base to record and save videos on. One issue I've found is if you're planning on putting a camera behind a glass window, say trying to monitor/record outside video while mounting the camera inside behind glass, it does not seem to pick up motion outside to record. I assume this is due to the glass interfering with the motion sensor. On a funny side note, the first night we had it set up we discovered that we have frogs in our garage and they were recorded crawling up our window, looking for flies I'm sure. The other concern I've is if you're considering using this as a baby monitor, you have to rely on the alerts within the app and your wifi. If your wifi stops working, you can't access your camera and you better ensure your settings are correct if you want to receive prompt alerts to monitor a sleeping baby. We still opted to have a separate, non wifi, baby monitor because we just couldn't trust the app notifications and our wifi. There is a few second delay within the app so that also may be an issue for a variety of reasons. We have to charge the batteries approximately once a month and that depends on how sensitive you have the motion and recording settings or how often you access the cameras. They are also convenient to use as intercoms. We chose to add additional cameras to the system which were also very easy to add, simply press a button on the base and a button on the new cameras and you're good to go. Just make sure if you're using them as a security video recording system to set them up within the the "Mode" settings within the smartphone app to record. My favorite part of this system is the ease of being able to move the cameras wherever you want with the included half dome magnetic mounts, two included in the package. The cameras are light enough to double side tape to the walls instead of having to drill/mount, at least for inside mounting purposes. If we were going to put them outside, I feel screwing them in would be the best option. I would suggest mounting them somewhere that is easy to access because of having to dismount the cameras, simply pulling them off the magnetic mounts, to charge the batteries.

    Poor software and hardware

    Posted

    Strike 3 Arlo Strike 1 was Arlo support blaming my Arlo Baby issue's on my network so returned. Strike 2 was missing parts in a new Pro box so returned to Amazon for refund. Strike 3 is Arlo Pro 2 purchased from BB Where do I start. 1. The software is as far from intuative as it comes. The App instructions make it seem like you can use Geofencing to turn the cameras on and off when location is turned to always on. The issue is you have to log into the app for it to know your location so defeats the purpose of always monitoring your location. My other geofencing apps work awesome so clearly it's a Arlo software issue. But when you do log in and it knows if your home it won't use your schedule so you are stuck with no video recording unless you are not home. Stupid stupid stupid! Also when you do have notifications on geofencing there's no way to turn off email notifications so your phone gets blown up twice over. There's also no way to continuous record onto the hard drive connected to the base station! I get you want to sell me a cvr plan but at $299 per camera per year that's $1500 a year in video recording plans. Ok onto the hardware The water right plugs on the rear do not stay in place at all. They all work their self out within a few seconds which means I cant put them out in the weather because water can get into the connection! The IR is very weak compared to other cams I have used. Even the Arlo Baby which was a seriously awful piece of hardware had better night viewing. I have to run flood lights in the areas the camera views as I cant make anything out. If these issues are not fixed this will be the 3rd item from Arlo I will be returning and won't be buying their products ever again. Curious to know what they blame these issues on this time around.

    easy to set up and nice video quality

    This is our first experience with a security camera system. So far I would say that the biggest plusses to the Arlo Pro 2 are that it is easy to set up and maintain and it gives one 7 days of free cloud storage. Set up simply involves connecting the Arlo base to your home router and then syncing each of the cameras to the Arlo base. This is easy and went quite smoothly. We placed our two Arlo cameras outside. They are protected by patio covers, but the cameras are weather resistant so outside placement should not be an issue. The kit did not come with any of the screw type Arlo mounts so we purchased two for the purpose of mounting them outside. It would be nice if the price was a bit lower than the $19.99 that Netgear charges for these adjustable mounts. Also, we thought Netgear is missing out on an opportunity to sell some sort of security cage or lock system for these cameras. If one was to use one of the supplied magnetic mounts in this kit someone would only have to be within reach of the camera to walk off with it. For the optional mount we purchased they do have to go to the trouble to unscrew the camera from the mount which takes a bit more time but with additional cameras costing $220.00 a piece this is probably a concern for most owners. As far as the daily use of the Arlo Pro 2 system we find it very easy to use. The Arlo app is fairly intuitive and allows one to view recorded video or live video. We have found the video to be of excellent quality and one can lessen the recording quality to achieve longer battery time if desired. We have been using our system for about a week and have seen little drain on the batteries thus far. The app also includes a 100 db alarm button that is actually quite loud. This is sure to draw some attention if one was in need of help. A user can set up notifications in the app to get email or push notifications when motion is detected. We have found the motion sensor and notification to lag just a little bit which is probably due to the wireless setup, but this lag is pretty negligible. In summary, the Arlo Pro 2 wireless, 1080P cameras are easy to setup and use. The quality and look of the system is nice and should meet the needs of most users. I feel there is room for Netgear to improve on the security of the mounting system, especially for outdoor use. Thus far in our use of the system we have only had one hiccup where the app indicated "Arlo system is experiencing an unexpected problem at this time". After trying the app a bit later the problem no longer existed and everything was working fine.

    Great resolution

    I have the Arlo base station and 2 Arlo Pro cameras, but was interested in an upgrade to the camera resolution. It turned out that the new cameras paired easily with my old base station. I'll keep the extra base unit as a backup if needed. Both camera models have a 130-degree viewing angle, but the 1080p HD resolution of the Pro 2 cameras is notably better than the 780p HD resolution on the Pro models. The Pro 2 cameras have some additional features (activity zones and continuous video recording [CVR]), but these features are only available when the units are plugged in (i.e. not on battery power) and the CVR feature is likely to generate larger files than can be accommodated on the 1GB of storage available with the free Basic service plan. Setup was simple with smartphone app. I had to try twice to synchronize the first camera with the base unit, but the second paired straight away and both worked flawlessly. Cameras can be given individual names for easy reference. Three video quality modes are available and can be varied for each camera separately. Zooming and panning are possible, but these are digital features only (i.e. zoomed images are cropped). Panning is only possible when zoom is active. The camera has no optical zoom or mechanical panning capabilities. You are better off capturing the entire 130-degree image and cropping after video is recorded. I have the free "Basic" service that includes 7 days of video "memories" on the Arlo cloud (up to 1 GB), up to 5 cameras, and 3 months of support. With the 2 new Pro 2 cameras, the 1GB limit might be more quickly reached, but I regularly clean old video footage (mostly of my cat) and I have not bumped into the 1GB limit over a week of use. WiFi connectivity between all 4 cameras (2 x Pro and 2 x Pro 2) and base unit is impressive. I have my cameras placed 25 to 40 feet away from the base unit with 2 interior walls and 1 exterior wall between and the signal strength (according to the app) is very good. These cameras are truly wireless. Magnetic mounts are effective, but must be located out of reach when placed outside to prevent theft as the cameras are easily removed from the mount. Cameras can also be place on a flat surface without a mount. Alternative mounting options are available separately. If you don't like white, there are black and camouflage "skins" available for the cameras. Video and audio recordings must be stored on the Arlo cloud. This has advantages and disadvantages. Advantages: 1) facilitates remote access via smartphone app when beyond the range of your local WiFi signal; 2) no local storage medium is required. Disadvantages: 1) "Live" video (and audio) is delayed by a couple of seconds; 2) You need to trust that the Arlo cloud is reliable, private, and secure. The Arlo terms of service suggests that they are not responsible for uploaded "content". There are two USB ports on the base unit for local storage, but this is in addition to (not instead of) cloud storage. Video and audio recording (and other actions) on individual cameras can be triggered by motion or audio or both. The length of recording can be set for the duration of the trigger (up to 300 seconds) or can be set to a fixed length from 10 to 120 seconds. The trigger can activate an alarm and send email and notifications in-app. The alarm is VERY loud and comes from the base unit, not the cameras. Unlike security service providers, video and audio are not monitored and you are entirely responsible for alerting authorities in the event of emergencies. Be prepared to receive LOTS of emails and in-app notifications and, likely, a bump in your cell phone data usage if you use your smart phone to watch video. The sensitivity of motion detection can be adjusted separately for each camera. The default setting ("80%") is quite sensitive and can be triggered by reflection from windows. Each camera can be turned off manually. The system can also be turned on and off and can be scheduled to come on at specific times for each day of the week. There is a built-in infrared (IR) light source that allows black/white "night vision". In IR mode, near objects and reflective surfaces are very bright. The two-way audio feature is nice and output volume is loud enough to have a conversation (considering the push-to-talk delay). Some browsers (e.g. Internet Explorer) don't support the push-to-talk feature required for two-way audio. The rechargeable batteries in my two older cameras actually do last up to 6 months without a charge. I have no doubt that the batteries will perform similarly on the Pro 2 cameras. Extra batteries can be purchased. If you don't purchased the optional charging station, batteries must be charged (indoors) in the camera.

    This system is by far the easiest installation I have done in a long time. I had this system ready to go in under 10 mins and installed the magnetic wall mounts in 7 minutes. To be honest I didn't even read the instructions I just plugged everything together, installed the batteries to the cameras which came fully charged btw (saved a lot of time), hooked up the base to my mesh linksys router, plugged the adapter and I was done! I did read the book to sync up both cameras to the base which was easy too, just pressed and hold the sync base button for 2 seconds and pressed the sync button on the cameras as well for 2 seconds (one at a time or course) and I was done. I was really impressed with the Arlo App (I have an iphone), its very easy to use, the dashboard interface is easy to navigate, and the two cameras are on the home screen of the app for easy navigation. Arlo has 3 service options or "view plans" that you can use with this camera system, the first one is the basic option which is free, provides up to 7 days of recording through Arlos cloud service (up to 1 gb), up to 5 cameras, and support limited to 3 months, the other option is the "premier" includes 30 days of video recording in cloud (up to 10 gb), up to 10 cameras, and unlimited support. The fee is 100/year. Last but not least is the "Elite" option which has up to 60 days of video recordings in cloud(up to 100 gb's), up to 15 cameras, and unlimited support. The fee is 149/year. They also have packages for business, but these options are for home. If you are interested in the difference you can go straight to their web site. I decided on the basic package to try it out first. I did all my customization through the app, I set up the cameras to automatically recording with motion, there is also an option for audio detection recording (you can also use the cameras speaker to speak), or scheduling recording. I turned off the push notification because I was getting notified as I was walking through the room it was getting kind of annoying, but I can see how this would be a good option if you are out of the household. The library (recordings bank) is really easy to use and offers a calendar type lay out so you can view your recordings by date. Since I had my recordings to start with motion I only got recordings in 8 sec to 1 min videos lapses which is fine. I ended up installing a camera inside my studio apartment and one outside. I don't recommend to use the screws that came with the wall mount if you are planning to install it outside. I would use a bigger screw for installation just make sure it will fit through the wall bracket in the back of the wall mount. The picture quality is really great, it's 1080hd so its very clear, the app has options to change the clarity, you can lower it to save battery. I also don't remember reading about how long the batteries last, but I will eventually buy a solar panel for my outdoor camera so I won't have worry about a low battery (it cost roughly $80). The cameras are weather proof, I installed my outdoor camera right under a fascia so it won't be too expose to the elements. I really like this camera and I would recommend to anyone! My mother loves it too that she is thinking of buying one for her home. Good product.

    Don't need 1080p, go with the original Arlo Pro

    This review may be a bit long, but will be worth the reading prior purchasing either Arlo Pro systems. In summary based on the retail price of both the Arlo Pro ($649.99) and Arlo Pro 2 ($799.99) for the four camera system at Best Buy, you are basically paying $37.50 more for each camera for just the 1080p resolution and that's pretty much it. Video resolution: Yes, the video for the Arlo Pro 2 is crispier than the Arlo Pro, however, if you zoom in, the resolution is still grainy. As for night vision, I still think the Arlo Pro is better. Battery life: If you set the battery to "Optimal" in the video setting and the motion settings to 50% in the mode settings and don't really have any motion or noise activity, then your battery will take a while to drain and can last more than a month. However, if you place your camera in a location where you have semi-frequent or frequent, the battery will drain quickly and you'll require either a solar panel or will need to take it down frequently to recharge. If you want to get a solar panel, then I would recommend the Netgear solar panel verses the compatible one that Amazon offers and USE the "Simply Solar" app to place the solar panel and position the angle of it. On the camera with semi-frequent motion, I started off at 100% battery life, then overnight, it went down to 96% and at noon, it was recharged to 100% again. However, if you have overcast skies, the charging may be hindered. 3 second delay: Depending on the angle placement of the cameras, the actual trigger of the motion sensor can vary. For my camera with semi-frequent activity, motion going from right to left activates the video recording quicker than motion from left to right. So when you read reviews that you can totally miss a person from taking your stuff at the front door, that's definitely a possibility for both Arlo Pro and Arlo Pro 2. You may hear that the Arlo Pro 2 can display the activity during the 3 seconds that you would normally not see in the Arlo Pro, however, you would need to have continuous AC power plugged on to the camera and that defeats the whole purpose of the Arlo Pro systems being wireless. As for zone coverage recording for the Arlo Pro 2, it is useless unless you have AC charging. Arlo app on your smartphone: Tendencies to see it go offline, but I think it is still recording, but don't know for sure. You do get push notification, however, when you look on your smartphone for the video, that video can show up 10-20 seconds after getting the notification even when you are in your house and when you add that to the 3 second delay, it can be too late if you want to fend off any intruders when you are not at home. Magnet mounts: These are good for indoor, however if you plan on mounting the cameras outdoors, then you better purchase screwed on mounts so that no one can easily take it or have a bird land on it and knock it off. If you are looking for a wireless and WiFi outdoor camera, then consider the Alro Pro unless you really want the 1080p resolution, then get the Arlo Pro 2...again (my opinion), you are just paying for the higher resolution and nothing else. In conclusion, both Arlo Pro systems are nice because it is battery operated and on WiFi. However, if you plan to place the camera in an area with frequent motions, you better purchase a solar panel to keep the camera(s) juiced up. Otherwise you'll be taking the camera on and off to recharge it in a matter of a couple of weeks. Features like seeing the 3 second recording, continuous video recording (CVR), and zone coverage in the Arlo Pro 2 are good, but require continuous AC power connection to the cameras. Again, that defeats the whole purpose of why you would purchase the Arlo Pro system to begin with...to be wired free. I decided to keep my Arlo Pro 2 only because I can afford it, already spent some money on accessories like the Netgear solar panel, additional mounts, skin coverings, and it has the 1080p resolution and was able to get it on sale at Best Buy, but definitely would not buy the Arlo Pro 2 at retail price of $799.99 (so look for sales). I also would have returned the system if the Netgear solar panel did not work as I don't want to constantly take down the semi-active camera to recharge every two weeks. Again, with the Arlo Pro 2, you are basically paying more for just the 1080p. Honestly, if you are just looking for a security system for inside the house for a peace of mind or a baby monitor and don't need to have the camera wireless/battery powered, then take a look at wyzecam.com, especially if you have a very tight budget and cannot afford to spend hundreds of dollars...you'll be surprised if you just want something simple indoors with 1080p and with no frills. As for whether or not I recommend this product to a friend, it is up to your wants and needs, but Best Buy requires you to select either a Yes or No. So if you don't need 1080p, then no, you should just go with the regular Arlo Pro, but if you want the 1080p then yes, but the additional features require continuous power.
