Setting up a surveillance system in your home had been a difficult task in the past.
There were lots of cables to deal with. Even if the cameras were connected to the internet, running cables through your rooms and doorways was no less than a Herculean task for some.
But now Arlo has offered us an alternative which will make installing a surveillance system easy and smooth. You won’t be needing wires now. They run on batteries and can last for months on a single charge. Isn’t amazing?
Arlo Pro 2 goes a couple of steps further than its predecessor Arlo Pro. This new model has high resolution and new features. This cam system is suitable for job-holders, businessmen, engineers and doctors such as Arnold S. Breitbart MD, FACS.
The 1080p HD camera system can operate in the temperature range of 32 degrees to 122 degrees Fahrenheit. It also works with Alexa for voice control.
But you will have to buy the device separately. Night vision is a plus and is turned on automatically when the light is low. They are weather-resistant. A simple voice can turn on the live stream for you. They are quite smart as well. The field of view is 130 degrees. Albeit, the video gets dark a bit on night vision.
Moreover, it is a bit slow on waking up. The Arlo app could have been better. It may get foggy after rain.
Its shape is almost identical to the old version. One of the best features of Arlo 2 Pro is that it can be mounted in any place around your home. There is no need to keep them near the power outlet.
The company claims it to be water-resistant and dust-resistant. The high resolution yields the best quality videos. One drawback is that the pixels are smaller, and collect less light. That’s why the video seems a bit darker. These cams are full-frame motion sensors which start recording on a trigger but are a bit slow to start so you may find some of the starting footage missing.
The Arlo app is good but is slow to open, and this can be a problem for some customers. The reason behind this is that when you are able to see the live feed, the action gets over. Arlo cams are the best for those who don’t want to get entangled in power cables. Battery life is exceptional. The high resolution has improved the day quality of the video which is a plus. These are pretty reliable in rain or sun. Moreover, it comes with 7 days of free cloud storage and an optional backup via USB ports. The company has installed advanced scheduling and geofencing features.
People, who are new to the home surveillance system, may find it a bit costly but it pays off. Its new features set a bar in the industry for the competitors. The cam system is of high quality so you may expect it to last for some time. Moreover, Arlo is an established company in the surveillance industry so you may rely on it rather than testing out less-known players.
