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


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 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.

Netgear Arlo Pro, First Take: Pricey, but plenty of options


The latest version of Netgear's clever little security camera, Arlo Pro , adds a rechargeable battery and higher video quality (720p), plus two-way audio and a siren. This lets you talk to the courier trying to deliver a parcel, or shout at the...

Can access from only one device at a time per account ; No continuous-recording option ; Limited sharing

NETGEAR Arlo Pro Review


The wireless capability is convenient for an outdoor camera, but it offer lesser video quality than other model

Wireless, weatherproof

Expensive, relatively poor video resolution, poor real time viewing

The Arlo Pro is a fairly convenient, wireless outdoor camera. However, its convenience factor won't outweigh its performance shortcomings for most users.

Netgear Arlo Pro Review: How do you improve something so good?


It's been two years since I first installed Arlo cameras at my home. These wire-free security cameras were a revolution – I'd always wanted surveillance video but there was no way I was running wires for power and connectivity. To have a weather proof,...

Good system BUT Arlo's tech/after sales help is awful


Bought this, & had issues from day one. The notification on the phone was not coming through. Spent many days & hours with Arlo's tech help. Had to go through the 'installation' from scratch over four times & when the camera is installed on the first...
