    I was surprised by how this security camera. I have tested the Wyze Outdoor Camera and the ring stick up camera and i am a Ring fan but this Camera changes the game. i haven't seen many 2k cameras out there. This has a 160 degree viewing angle. Before i had to have two Ring stick up cameras but now i can just have one mounted. This not only has a ultra wide viewing it is also very smart. It has auto zoom and it detects animals , vehicles, packages, and humans. Mine is mounted on a 3rd floor story outside window ledge and it still detects the difference. the clarity is one of the best also as playback videos are 100% clear and there is no lag. The pictures i uploaded you can make out the detail like what a person is wearing or what make and model of a car is. ect. If my camera was mounted on a first or second floor i could easily tell license plates and faces.

    I’m a first time home buyer. I thought someone tried breaking into my house in the middle of the night and I was all alone. That same morning I went to Best Buy and purchased this camera. The three cameras didn’t take long to install and I did it on my own. The quality is great. The picture attached is about 9:30pm. You can do many things including zoom in, make the video brighter, 2-way talk from wherever. If you park in your garage like I do, nobody will ever be able to tell if you’re home or across the country!

    I spent several weeks researching smart security cameras before finally purchasing alto security cameras, I wanted to go with something cheaper like ring but after reading dozens of reviews and talking to friends and family I decided to go with the more expensive choice, alto cameras are great, they are the only wireless cameras I could find, the video quality is great and they are simple to install. I believe in most cases you get what u pay for and this is one of those things you are better off spending more and not taking the chance on a cheaper product.

    This product has very good quality during the day and night.The cameras work find just the audio is hard to hear when speaking to someone. The battery runs low very quickly on the front camera since so much activity is seen. Hopefully getting the solar panel for the front.

    I love the Arlo pro 4 , it’s a great camera and has great video Quality , I love how it zooms in and the camera will move when it text the animal or person moving, the only down fall is the battery life they say it last for 6 months no it will not last that long it depends on how much motion it picks up , the one that I have in my driveway the battery was at 100% 2 days later it’s down to 92%.

    It’s good quality and the battery life last reasonably long. No complaints other than I wish there wasn’t a required distance the cameras would need to be placed to connect to our Wi-Fi box.

    Live Feed Delay, Poor Battery Life, Cheap Material

    Posted .

    I have not owned cameras from other companies, so I don't know how this product compares to the competition. For the following reasons, I think the Pro 4 is a poor value: 1. Significant time delay in live feed and mobile app notifications: I bought these cameras because I've had packages stolen from my front door. I've had a couple instances of trespassing that my side camera has caught, but both times I wasn't able to catch the person because there was a 15-20 second delay on the mobile app feed. The camera is within 10 feet of my modem and router, so I am pretty sure this problem is due to outdated wireless technology in the transmitter. 2. Motion detection problems: The camera in the front of my house goes dead within 2 days because it mistakenly detects motion. I have the motion activity detection area set to a minimal space in front of my door, but if a car goes by or a light flickers anywhere in the field of vision, the camera will send a motion alert. I tried reducing motion detection sensitivity in the app, but it did not help. 3. Battery life: If you read through the reviews for this camera at any retailer, you will see the battery life is a universal issue. My cameras go dead as soon as 2 days, and in my experience last at maximum 2 weeks with little to no motion detection. Because of this, the cameras are essentially useless when used as wireless devices. 4. Poor quality plastics I have to regularly dismount and recharge my cameras because the battery life is so short. When I took one down off of its mount, I accidentally dropped it and the camera popped out from its white plastic housing. The inner camera plastic cracked so severely that the camera will no longer snap into place (see photos). I don't recommend purchasing this camera system. I made the mistake of buying several of them at once, and I regret not returning them as soon as I started having issues.

    Absolutely love Arlo Pro 4 cameras. I was able to get a clear picture of the fox that brutally attacked my chickens. The picture was so clear that it looked like the fox was smiling at the camera;but be sure to buy extra batteries and/or a solar panel. Other than that I love, love, love, Arlo Pro 4. This is the best camera system I highly recommend to anyone. Sad about my chickens that I lost but happy I know what killed then. Thank you Arlo Pro

    Have in front while the other is in back to record proof of loud neighbor after hrs yelling having parties. This one caught the car wash guy they hired. Dump his vacuum crap in front of our place along the curb. Went out and got his plates and he saw questioning I told him he needs to clean it up I got in on camera. If he dumps like this that means he dumps other stuff too and it may not be as small. This was from his first vehicle he cleaned and still had more to do. The camera is so good on zoom you could see his shorts were wet. Gross. Wonder if there cars smell like pee if he had to sit while cleaning.

    DO NOT BUY! WASTE OF MONEY!! Does not record most motions. Can not be set to record continuously even if you want to pay $9.99 per camera a month. Sensitivities set to high yet it will miss people 3-6ft away or capture a person right as they leave the camera frame. Very delayed after it records, it takes a while before you are able to view or find out it never captured anything. The images when watching live a very very delayed. Its a hit or miss whether it even records my vehicle pulling into the driveway! I had someone trespass after walking around my property 1 out of 3 cameras picked up the man as he left the camera view. My son was home alone and seen him. The cameras failed! I purchased for security and am livid by how awful these cameras work. Battery life is a joke lasts 1-3 days before needing to be charged. The microphone is useless cannot hear if you try to talk to the person in front of your camera however it does do a decent job of picking up sounds when it does record. I did not set up my cameras right away after purchasing otherwise i would have returned them immediately. These Arlo cameras are useless over priced junk. Hard to show examples of how horrible they are without seening the video it does capture. I added one picture below that shows it missed my vehicle leaving the driveway. How it missed me getting into a big brown suv right in view and driving away is beyond me.

    Top notch

    |
    Posted .

    All the same great features of the Pro 3 but now you can connect direct to Wi-Fi. What this means is if you do not want to buy a kit with the hub, or you need to mount it far away from your hub which may provide a weaker signal, then this is for you. Now you are not limited to the distance from your hub, but rather the distance from your home/business Wi-Fi. If the distance is not an issue and you plan on using with the hub, then the Pro 3 would work fine for you as well. I tested the new Pro 4 both as a straight Wi-Fi connection and then also through the hub. I noticed that when you create an activity zone when connected straight to Wi-Fi you are limited to drawing a square or rectangle, but when connecting through the hub I can draw any shape of activity zone I desire. Battery life is determined and how much the camera is activated both during the day and at night which also used the LED light. I get a few months out of my PRO 3 cameras on the front porch which get less activity and maybe 1-1.5 months from the camera facing my driveway which detects more traffic as this is the main entry point of our house. It was easy to add this camera to my system. Simply opened my Arlo app on my android device, went to devices, chose ‘Add Device’, Choose ‘Camera’, Choose my Pro 4, then follow the instructions. You will get a QR code that displays on your phone that you simply hold up to the camera about 8 inches away for the App to find and connect the camera. User friendly interface. The only con that I have with these cameras is when you are in live stream mode, there does seem to be at about a 5 second delay from a person's movement to actually seeing that movement on my viewing device. That also makes audio back and forth delayed as well. Hopefully, this will be tightened up with software in time. The Arlo Pro 4 comes with a magnetic mount. Works well at most angles, but the way mine is angled it feels a little loose. It has not moved yet and is somewhat protected by my porch so I do not foresee it being an issue, but you may need to test before mounting. Overall, the Arlo units are top notch cameras with a great interface. The cost to monitor and keep 30 days of history is reasonable as well. I have recommended to neighbors and friends.

    Wire Free and Hub Free

    |
    Posted .

    The Arlo Pro 4 Spotlight Camera works without a hub or base station, and being wire free makes installation a snap. Download the app, register an account, enter your wifi information then plug the battery in the camera, scan a QR code, and you're pretty much done other than the actual camera mounting itself, which is as simple as everything else. I did an indoor installation in my server room and it took me 10 minutes start to finish. Not requiring a hub means you will have to subscrive to their cloud storage (a 90-day free trial is included) which starts at $2.99/mo for one camera. The camera comes with a removable battery which you can charge using the magnetic charging cable (it takes about 3 hours for a full charge), but it requires you taking the camera down. The claimed battery life is 6 months, but I saw it drop 25-30% in a week so if you put it anwhere there is much activity, you won't see anything close to the claimed battery time. They do offer an accessory battery and charge kit, so you can simply swap batteries when they get low, as well as a solar charger to keep a constant charge. The Arlo Pro 4 is full of features including HD (2K) live streamin, wide angle 160-degree view, built-in spotlights and sirens, two-way audio, color night vision, rechargeable batteries, weatherproof housing and support for Alexa and Google Assistant. The 2K resolution offers a clear and bright view of what's going on. Overall it's hard to beat. The only negatives I found is that it only supports 2 Ghz wifi, and the magnetic mount system which makes it so easy to install would also seem like it may make it easier for an intruder to take down or steal the camera.

    Great when works

    Posted .

    I purchased three Arlo Pro 4 cameras because we were burglarized. I set the sensitivity to high, but it doesn't stay as "high". I continually have to check it and change it back to high. Of the two cameras on the front of my house (pointed toward the street), they missed people and vehicles that were directly in front of my house. I changed the audio sensitivity to high so they basically record all day, 5 minutes at a time. I catch everything now. Well, sometimes the cameras go offline for no reason, but they generally come back online. One time I had to completely remove one camera from my account and reinstall. That was pretty annoying. There is no way to speed watch the recordings (that I know of). However, this is a minor inconvenience when you consider a stranger could be burglarizing your home and you don't know who they are, how they got in, etc. I purchased 2 extra batteries and will purchase a dual battery charger because even though I gave the cameras only 3 stars, I do like them.

    Great camera!

    Posted .

    Excellent quality, well designed functional camera. I own blink and ring cameras too, so a good basis for comparison. I've had a great experience with the Arlo Pro 4 (so far, couple of weeks of use). It worked well on weak wireless signals, just down in the canyon off my backyard. Detected multiple coyotes within 24h! Had a large rain storm for several days and no issues except slight blur from water over the lens cover (that dried itself within a short period). One slight caution is that the battery will run down within a couple of weeks if the video recording is too frequent (eg. motion sensitivity too high). Overall an excellent, highly recommended product that puts out high quality video with accurate motion detection and provides the outputs in a convenient format for viewing (including push notifications if you so desire).

    Beware! This is a custom BESTBUY Arlo Pro 4 Camera! Its not the regular Arlo pro 4 camera. The mount comes permentantly attached to the camera and isnt removable. Also the camera requires a special security tool (included in the package) to open the camera battery compartment and also to remove the mount so if you lose that special tool, you cant change the battery or mount versus the REGULAR Arlo Pro 4 that you can buy in a regular bundle or as an add on which isnt permenantly attached to a mount and has a small push button to remove the camera battery compartment! Buy the single camera add on or a bundle with a base station.

    Battery doesn’t stay charged for nothing. Hate the app! It’s depressing!

    Good quality videos

    Posted .

    The picture and sound is good quality for being a wifi camera. The videos can be zoomed in on and it covers a lot of area. I would recommend them if you are looking to self monitor.

    I honestly wish the picture quality was better. It was easy to sync to my base I had from using Arlo pro 3, but it wasn’t as good as an updated as I thought
