    First, I bought the refurbished option. It shipped fast and everything was in new conditions. It even shipped with batteries. As for the Arlo itself, it has limited capabilities. The "up to 25 ft" motion sensing is closer to 5 ft than 25. It recommends mounting 7 feet high and pointing slightly down, but if you think about that, it limits where you can put it. These cameras are great for little city lots or in the house, but if you want them around your property, you are going to find it difficult to get them to trigger. Battery life is terrible on these, even with the image quality dialed back. They take expensive camera batteries. If you try any off-brand or rechargeable, it voids your warranty.

    Does not make a good Baby Monitor

    My wife and I purchased this product thinking it would make a good baby monitor system that could double as a security system. While the product works well in the security realm - taking motion activated videos and storing them to be viewed from anywhere - the ability to watch realtime was not very good at all.

    Not worth it

    Bought this refurbished because of the $100 savings. Only 2 of the four cameras worked. Netgear /Arlo customer service is beyond horrendous. Spent hours each day for 5 days in a row with them. Unbelievably awful. System now works but don't waste time trying to same money. The refurbished isn't worth it

    I bought Refurbished because I thought it was fully checked out and would not fa il mer. Well I was wrong. The base will not pair with mt Galaxy 8, thaat I also bought from Best Buy. The system should be phenomenal as per what I reviewed but be careful on the Refurbished Product.
