Netgear Arlo Smart Home Security review

 

Of the DIY security cameras we've reviewed, battery-powered models are not particularly common. That's because you usually have to give up key features like live streaming and HD video quality so you aren't constantly swapping out batteries. The...

Arlo's 720p video works well whether it's resting on a table near your router or hidden in a tree hundreds of feet away.

It doesn't have any audio capabilities and the battery life will vary a lot depending on usage.

Netgear's Arlo is your answer to un-tethered indoor and outdoor DIY home security -- just make sure you have spare batteries handy.

Netgear Arlo review: Dated, but still strong

 

Incredibly flexible camera placement and great image quality, but the Arlo system is expensive

We were impressed with the video quality and wireless freedom Arlo provides, which are a major selling point over traditional wired IP cameras. Netgear has been forced to make a few sacrifices to prioritise battery life, meaning no sound or 1080p...

Netgear Arlo review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Netgear Arlo is a compact and stylish smart home-security camera that allows you to keep an eye on your house wherever you are. At £150 it's one of the pricier models on the market, reflecting the premium design, but is the picture quality any...

Rain won't stop Netgear's new indoor/outdoor security camera

 

Netgear's battery-powered Arlo security camera can tackle anything from a dark basement to a torrential downpour.

Arlo's 720p video works well whether it's resting on a table near your router or hidden in a tree hundreds of feet away.

It doesn't have any audio capabilities and the battery life will vary a lot depending on usage.

Netgear's Arlo is your answer to un-tethered indoor and outdoor DIY home security -- just make sure you have spare batteries handy.

Netgear Arlo Smart Home Security Kit

 

Interestingly, Netgear didn't do away with those power-hungry options when it made its battery-only, 720p-resolution, motion-sensing, night-vision-equipped, indoor/outdoor Arlo cameras. They retain the resolution and on-demand video feed of a...

Netgear Arlo HD Camera review: Stylish, smart, and currently proprietary

 

We like the Arlo's HD cameras with their clever magnetic mounting system, but there's currently no way to store your video locally.

Stylish HD cameras with magnatic mounting ; Easy remote access of video and cameras ; Promises to integrate with AllSeen-compatible smart-home products

Currently only stores video on the Web ; Cameras can't be used with other systems

Netgear's Arlo security-camera system could be a great Wi-Fi security system if Netgear makes the right decisions with regard to positioning it.

NETGEAR Arlo Review

 

A reasonable outdoor camera, but not a top performer in any category

Wireless, weatherproof

Expensive, relatively poor video quality and real time viewing, requires buying/replacing batteries

The Arlo is a relatively expensive outdoor camera that did not wow us in any of our tests. If you like the idea of a wireless outdoor camera, we would suggest looking at the .

Netgear Arlo Review

 

If you're looking to buy a networked security camera that functions equally well indoors and out, the $199 Netgear Arlo is a great option. Thanks to its waterproof exterior, wireless design and magnetic wall mount, the Arlo can be placed almost...

Compact, wireless design ; Waterproof ; Innovative magnetic wall mount ; Intuitive mobile app ; Night vision

No audio ; Lengthy setup process ; Limited ability to customize security modes

The Netgear Arlo is ideal for both indoor and outdoor use, thanks to its wireless, waterproof design and magnetic wall mount.
