Should not be called security cameras

Pros: - clear picture and sound - easy setup - convenient mounting - discrete/inconspicuous - local USB storage option - nice app and web access - free cloud storage Cons: - price - battery at 47% after 3 days - poor motion detection - late alerts - default recording only 3 seconds Despite the price I decided to give this a chance based on brand reputation and other reviews. Unfortunately they did not meet my expectations. Once you get over the price, you realize that there are some nice features that justify the price tag. The build quality is excellent and the setup is extremely easy. The app and web access are really easy to use and work well. The main problem for me is that they motion detection only works horizontally across the center of the frame. Meaning, if someone walks into the frame from the top, a trigger will not be set off until the pass the center horizontal plane. By then, with the delay to start the recording, the person is often already out of frame and you capture nothing. You can adjust the camera and have the image sideways so the horizontal plane is in the opposite direction but then it's hard to view. Other security cameras record continually so when a trigger is set it can record 10 seconds before the trigger. That's an actual security camera. The next biggest issue is battery life. The cameras come with fully charged batteries (which is nice) but after 3 days I'm at 47% battery left. At this rate I'll be charging them every week. I realize that I've watched more live video than I would in the future because it's new but that is unacceptable. Overall they are good quality cameras but the battery just doesn't last and, without constant recording, the delay to record and trigger just makes them useless as security cameras. I am extremely disappointed and let down so I'll have to pack them up and return them. Looks like I'll have to wired. Hopefully this helps others get the best product for their needs.

Great camera.. but motion detection is poor

I got this camera system to upgrade my home monitoring network. Loved the picture quality, ease of setup and wireless connectivity. Smartphone app was good to monitor cameras. Live play was terrific, especially with audio to see what was happening at home or business in real time. The big drawback for me however was the camera's motion detection.. which was poor and unreliable. I set the cameras for maximum motion detection sensitivity (100%) and it still missed vehicles pulling into my driveway or people walking right to my front door, well within camera range. I monitored for 2 full days to see if MD got better, but it didn't. Even when motion was detected, it would miss the first few seconds of the motion before recording .. sometimes with the person already out of camera range! For this kind of money, I want a system that senses motion RELIABLY and records those events in full. Kind of pointless to have a monitoring system that misses half the activity at your home or business. That was a deal breaker for me.. so I had to return the unit. Too bad.. I really liked the system otherwise. If you're using this system for simple live monitoring, then this system will do the job well. But if you're looking for a dependable security system that will catch ALL activity at your house or business, this one falls short.. at least in my experience. Pros: - Excellent cameras. Great picture quality, wide view range (130 degrees I think), excellent night vision. - Easy to set up and use. Almost too easy. Magnetic mount makes it easier for someone to tamper or steal. Would recommend a more secure mount for easily accessible locations. -good wireless connectivity. Easily hooked up to my wifi network with router in basement and cameras outside - Nice app to monitor cameras live Cons: - Motion detection is poor, unreliable. Missed a lot of activity. Even events it caught would start after a few seconds delay, sometimes missing the subject that initiated motion. -motion detection does not work through glass. If you wanted to set these cameras up inside the house to monitor outdoors, it won't catch any motion outside - Battery life. I was already down to 60% camera battery after 2 days of usage. That would mean having to take the camera down and recharge the battery every few weeks , which is a pain especially in winter. As a result, you would need to have the cameras installed in easy to reach places to access when batteries need recharging, which increases tampering chances. Would prefer AC powered cameras instead.

best thing ever

Just purchased this set of 2, took me about 15 minutes to set both in place (screw the 2 bases in place/strong magnet) and synchronize them...beside seeing the images on your mobile, you can be at your desk and view your home....from your work computer. they have rechargeable batteries with a 9V charger, comes in the box. the image is neat during the day....and the best thing...the clear image in the dark!! i wasn't sure of this purchase, however the 2 young men that explain how it works, were a great help to make the decision. I recommend this product for your piece of mind. LOVE IT!!

  • from Calgary, AB

Love them

The connectivity within my phone is really fast, the battery life is really good is been a month since I installed the cameras and the battery power is at 80%, not bad, really recommend getting Arlo pro cameras.

Poor Picture Quality

The look is very adorable, however the video is far from high definition, probably it is because it is wireless. After all it cost hundreds of dollars, this is not results I would like. I would not recommend this product.

  • from Calgary AB

the best

this is the best security home camera. Ilike ??

  • from Calgary, AB

Very impressed

Super easy set up, one screw (included) is all it takes. Set up process very simple. The picture quality, and sound are great and even the mic is great. Will highly recommend to family & friends, very happy with this purchase.

  • from Delta, BC

Simple, elegant solution

The Arlo Pro is very easy to set up, provides quality audio and video, and is scalable for all applications - indoor and outdoor. The image quality both day and night is very good, and so far, the battery life is excellent. If installing outdoors, I would recommend purchasing the outdoor mount as it is more secure than the ones provided in the box (though these ones are great if unconcerned about theft of the camera). If you can afford the price point, I would highly recommend

Prout support terrible

Purchased the Arlo Pro 4 cameras and base station on the 7th of Feb 2017 The process to set up these cameras was a breeze. The problem was one of the cameras would disconnet from the base with 12 hours. Emailed customer support, they suggested moving the camera closer to the base I relocated it 6 times changed batteries etc. Camera keeps disconnecting, Arlo customer support would not respond after the initial contact. Having one defective camera is a common theme with Arlo, just go to their website. Also have poor customer support as well. There is no way to reconnect the camera online, you have manually pull the battery and reset the camera. A real pain if the cameras are 3 hours away. Thankfully I kept the packaging as they are being returned to Best Buy for a refund tomorrow Feb 27. Great product if they all worked and support was available. Going to a hardwire system now, back to the Internet for more research.

These cameras ONLY save video to a 3rd party cloud system, nothing is saved locally unless downloaded from the 3rd party software. This makes the cameras hack-able and also if the 3rd party software goes down or out of business it will virtually make the cameras useless. HUGE and PRICEY disappointment from Netgear. Go with a brand that saves to a local hard drive, they are cheaper and more secure and have the same options such as remote smartphone viewing. BUYER BEWARE!

Great little camera

I have this camera for about a month now. The camera is easy to install and it has free 7 days cloud storage. The only thing is missing for me is perimeter notification. It would be nice to have this option because I don't need a notification every time when a car drive by or a person walk down my street. The notification is draining my phone battery

Arlo Pro

easy to install. working good. missing a zoom and would be nice for home to included the thermometer when we use live camera.

Great Product for Cottage

Just installed these at the cottage over Christmas. Very simple setup, love the magnetic mounts, although I suppose someone could easily make off with the camera? Did find the cameras really suck bandwidth on the wifi, couldn't stream a movie but all the more reason to geofence-app said beta but it appears to work fine. Both cameras and the base required a firmware upgrade, one of the cameras went weird for awhile but sorted itself out. So far very happy, app seems more than adequate, can't wait for the solar panels......

Arlo Cameras

I purchased two Arlo cameras with base station several months ago. I live outside of the typical high speed internet service area and went with these cameras because they work with cellular internet. I'm not a fan of the motion activation on these cameras as moving objects must enter the camera view from the left or right sides only - not great for capturing the face of an intruder or vehicle plate. The iPhone app is a little sluggish to respond and the base station fails to reconnect automatically if the internet hub loses a connection temporarily. On the upside, these cameras continued to work without fail during more than 3 weeks of -20 to -30 Celsius!!!!

  • from Vaudreuil, QC

Remarkable !

Quick and easy installation. Pairing is a cinch, the image quality is perfect, and it picks up the sound clearly. Although the price had me hesitating at first, I have to say, I have absolutely no regrets. We've experienced some low temperatures, and see no degradation to the battery power. I strongly suggest the purchase to anyone, wish I had made the decision before the vandalism ! I'll more than likely add on at least one more unit !

  • from Edmonton, AB

Not for Canadian weather.

I am disappointed, misleading information on the Best Buy website about the operating temperature. This system maybe for the Californian weather. My system is not working more than two weeks because of the cold temperature. Really big chance I can use it from April to October if I am lucky. I don't know why are they call it all weather camera system. Definitely not for Canadian weather.

  • from Richmond Hill, ON

Good product, but not great

I had both the arlo free and arlo pro. It seems arlo pro is better but motion sensor is better with arlo free instead.
