Arlo Pro 2 review

 

The Arlo Pro 2 may be more of a refinement than a reinvention of the original, but it remains one of the best smart home security systems money can buy. While a wave of low cost, standalone smart cameras — like the $20 Wyzecam — have sprouted up, Arlo...

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...

Arlo Pro 2 review

 

This review has been updated and the Arlo Pro 2 awarded CNET's Editors' Choice Award. The $480 Arlo Pro 2 kit is the latest option for anyone looking for a pair of outdoor-friendly wireless security cameras that can operate without the need to be...

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).

The 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...

Arlo Pro

 

The camera itself looks identical to the original Arlo, only bigger. It measures 3.1 by 1.9 by 2.8 inches (HWD) and weighs 4.8 ounces, compared with the first-gen's 2.5 by 1.6 by 2.8 inches and 4.0 ounces. It has a glossy white housing that meets IP65...

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).

The 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

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...

Arlo Pro 2 review: Solid security for a price

 

The Arlo Pro 2 is stacked with features but it starts pricey and gets even more so

Battery powered ; Sharp, 1080p footage ; Seven days free clip storage

Expensive

For many, the sheer number of features on offer will be overkill and the standard Arlo smart home kit will suffice. But for anyone who wants the extra bells and whistles – literally, given the standard version doesn’t come with a siren – there’s...

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

 

The $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).

The Arlo Pro 2 security cameras ably deliver reliable live streaming and prompt activity alerts packed in durable weatherproof housing.
