  • Great combo!
    Reviewed by Atxjrev - March 11, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love the combination camera and spotlight. I have it over my garage and I’m able to see partially in may garage, both my cars, and my driveway very clearly. There is a bit of a delay but that’s to be expected on WiFi. Installation was easy and took a total of 30 mins altogether. That includes setting up the app and trying to find the best placement. The app has been easy to use so far. I’m still working through the modes and programming to make it right for my needs but it’s an easy adjustment. I have the competitor camera as well. I think with the light, I like this one better. I would definitely recommend this camera to anyone wanting to set up a new home security system.

  • received a defective unit
    Reviewed by Lisa - April 15, 2021

    No disrespect to Best Buy because they immediately provided a free return shipping slip and subsequently reimbursed me once I returned the unit. So bravo to Best Buy for amazing customer support. I was hopeful about this unit after reading the reviews, and I'm sure this unit could be great, but I received a dud. The battery wouldn't charge to more than 85% after 24 hours of charging. Arlo's customer service tried to help, but in the end the unit was useless due to the defective battery. Plus, I didn't realize until later a monthly fee would be required to fully benefit from the unit once the 3-month free trial ended.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

  • Nice Clear Picture
    Reviewed by Ramilla - March 12, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a great security camera. The picture is very clear on the app and it was cinch to put up. I love that this camera can be added to the main home such as Google. The motion action works well and picks up everything. The motion sensor light is nice and bright giving a much better picture at night. The light comes on quickly and will help with security as well. The versatility of this camera and the amazing picture makes this a great buy!

  • Cutest and dependable unit
    Reviewed by Sandra Lynn - March 22, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Wasn't sure how well this thing would actually work but I read a few reviews n such before even taking it out of the box. So many positive comments. It does originally make comment about paying for an added service which will be awesome if needed. But it does offer great service all on it's on. Being able to monitor without others really knowing it. We just purchased our home and have a few areas we want to monitor. The fact that it can be there, not seen easily, and has a night vision feature is perfect. It's clear, motion sensors and so far easy to use. So many benefits!

  • Waste of money
    Reviewed by Big G - March 13, 2022

    The cameras don’t hold a charge very well ,especially in cold weather. The picture quality is terrible if it is raining, snowing or foggy.If you install these cameras at a high level good luck trying to charge them in bad weather especially in the winter. You also have to pay a monthly fee which is expensive for the poor quality of the cameras and the service that you receive. Look for cameras that are hard wired so you don’t have to climb up a ladder in bad weather to take them down to charge them. Poor quality very inconvenient terrible waste of money.I would not recommend them look elsewhere for a better product you don’t have to charge every 2 weeks.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
