Netgear Arlo Pro

 

Netgear Arlo Pro: A wireless outdoor camera that should be an essential part of your home security arsenal

Great image quality ; Reliable connection ; Weather-proof design ; Good-value subscriptions ; Easy set-up

Mandatory base station adds cost ; Motion detection a little slow ; No HomeKit support

A premium outdoor camera that’s worth every penny.

Netgear Arlo Pro 2 review

 

Pricy but professional cameras come to the home

Strong magnetic mounts for waterproof cameras ; Web interface offers high levels of control ; Free cloud recordings for up to 7 days ; Built-in siren

Base station difficult to set up with some routers ; Cameras need to be charged using lead and plug provided ; Quite an expensive set up compared to other brands

Looking for a professional-quality security camera set up for your property? Then the Arlo Pro 2 is definitely worth considering. The cameras are solidly built and capable of recording crystal-clear HD video, it's just a pity the base station is...

Netgear Arlo Pro 2 review

 

The Arlo Pro 2 is simply the best smart home security camera system you can buy.

Advanced scheduling and geofencing controls ; 7 days of free cloud storage ; Optional local backup via USB ; Backward compatible with Arlo Pro ; Scalable multi-camera plans for businesses

App interface a little convoluted

The Arlo Pro 2 may carry a high cost of entry for anyone looking for their first smart home camera, but it pays off. It is the most full-featured home security system we have yet tested. We are particularly impressed with the sheer amount of included...

Netgear's Arlo Pro 2 outdoor security cameras go where extension cords won't

 

Netgear's $480 Arlo Pro 2 home security cameras bring 1080p HD live streaming to your yard.

The cameras and related Arlo app work well and allow advanced features like person alerts and motion zones (if you subscribe to the Arlo Smart cloud service).

$480 is pricey for a two-camera kit. It's difficult to angle the cameras unless you mount and attach them to the included magnetic bases (which requires a more permanent install). Alexa and Google Assistant integration didn't work well in our testing.

If you don't need Alexa or Google Assistant support, the Netgear Arlo Pro 2 security cameras ably deliver reliable live streaming and prompt activity alerts packed in durable weatherproof housing.

Netgear Arlo Pro 2

 

Netgear's Arlo Pro 2 outdoor security camera system is completely wireless, works well with other smart home devices, and offers stunning 1080p video with free cloud and local storage options for event-triggered video.

Excellent-quality 1080p video. Weatherproof. Rechargeable batteries. Supports IFTTT and Alexa voice commands. Pre-buffered video recording. Continuous recording capabilities. Free and subscription-based cloud storage.

Expensive. Requires hub (included). Many features are only available when plugged in.

At $479, the Netgear Arlo Pro 2 is expensive, but you get two weatherproof cameras and a base station with a built-in siren and USB connectivity for storing recorded video locally. As with the original Arlo Pro cameras, the Pro 2 cameras are completely...

Netgear Arlo Pro

 

The Netgear Arlo Pro is a completely wireless surveillance camera system designed for outdoor use. It's a snap to install, delivers excellent video, works with other smart home devices, and offers free cloud storage.

Sharp HD video. Supports IFTTT. Works with other smart home devices. Free cloud storage. Geofencing support. Motion- and sound-triggered recording. Rechargeable batteries. Weatherproof. Easy to install.

Pricey. Requires a hub (included).

With the Netgear Arlo Pro you can monitor both the inside and the outside of your home (provided you buy two cameras) without having to run network cables, and you don't need an AC power source. The camera uses rechargeable batteries that will provide...

Netgear Arlo Pro 2 review: This already impressive indoor/outdoor security camera gets better

 

The second-generation Arlo Pro comes with higher resolution, improved motion detection, and more flexible installation options.

Can be use indoors or outdoors ; Customizable motion zones ; Can operate on either AC power or a rechargeable battery

Motion zones are only enabled when connected to AC power

The setup process for the Pro 2 is exactly the same as s—you plug the base station into your router with the supplied ethernet cable, then press sync buttons on the base station and the camera in succession to pair them. You’ll know they’ve paired...

Netgear Arlo Pro review: A great home security camera you can use indoors or out

 

Netgear's truly wire-free IP cam brings welcome flexibility to home monitoring.

Cameras are entirely wire-free (no power or ethernet cables) ; Highly customizable motion detection ; Can be deployed indoors or outdoors (IP65 rating)

Hard to see detail backround in night vision mode ; Setting up a separate hub might be a turn off ; Magnetic mount leaves cameras susceptible to theft

The Arlo Pro is a definite improvement over the original Arlo HD. Its ability to function equally well indoors or outdoors is fairly unique, and the app’s motion detection controls are some of the best we’ve seen. The idea of setting up a separate base...

Netgear's Arlo cam grows up and goes Pro

 

The Arlo Pro security camera is smarter than Netgear's last-gen model, but is it worth $250?

Netgear's $250/£300 Arlo Pro provides indoor and outdoor security monitoring in a single camera. You get seven days of free event-based cloud storage, and its rechargeable battery is supposed to last for up to six months.

The Arlo Pro costs more than its competition, and it was difficult to see what was happening in night-vision mode. Some customers won't want to deal with a hub accessory during installation.

The Arlo Pro is an even smarter DIY cam than Netgear's first-gen Arlo, but competitors are closing in fast with innovative designs and updated apps.
