Unlike other wire-free HD security cameras, the Arlo camera doesn't have to be recharged daily. Its single-use batteries have a total lifespan of 4-6 months, so there's no need to return them to a charging station or plug them in on a daily basis. The camera is waterproof, being able to withstand heavier downpours. Infrared night vision continues to detect motion at night, with the camera being able to see up to 25 feet away.

Arlo's HD Camera is a home security system that gives you peace of mind. The camera monitors for motion and sound, alerting you instantly via notification or email when it detects activity. It then records a short video of what's going on that's immediately available for you to view and downloaded. You can then view the live stream to keep track of the situation. This double system of alerts and videos helps you intervene quickly in the event of a break-in or emergency which is vital when it comes to catching those responsible and retrieving stolen property.

Product Information

  • 100% wire-free: The Arlo camera is battery powered, allowing Arlo to create a 100% wire-free design. This makes the camera more portable, while also making it harder for others to detect.
  • Protects your privacy: While we want to keep our family safe, we don't want them to feel as if they're being snooped on. You have two options when it comes to automating monitoring (schedules and geofencing), as well as the ability to switch off monitoring entirely.
  • Base station: You can place the Arlo camera's up to 300 feet away from the Base Station - a much larger range than home security cameras which simply connect to your router. The use of separate base station also helps to ensure speedy notifications and alerts.
  • A comprehensive network: By default, up to 5 separate cameras can be added to your home security setup. You can increase this to either 10 or 15 cameras through Arlo's Elite and Premier plans.
  • It costs nothing to ask: You can ask both the Google Assistant and Alexa to call up the live stream from a particular room on your phone or tablet - particularly useful for when you get a security alert and want to quickly see what's going on.
  • 7 days of cloud storage: Unlike with other home security cameras, Arlo lets you view the last 7 days of worth of video clips completely for free. This can be expanded with Arlo's subscription plans, or you can even have everything that the camera sees be recorded to the cloud.

The Arlo - HD Camera (VMS3130) in action

What you need to use the Arlo camera

There's nothing worse than buying a new piece of tech only for it not to work in your home. Avoid disappointment and read our breakdown of the system requirements for the Netgear Arlo camera:

  1. You'll need to have a high-speed internet connection (at least 1 Mbps). You can perform a speed test either on a mobile app or through a web portal. You can also contact your Internet Service Provider to get information about the speed of your connection.
  2. The Netgear Base Station needs to be connected to a router in order to connect to your Wi-Fi network. The router must have an available Ethernet port that you can use to connect the Base Station to the router.

How to place your Arlo camera

Placing the camera correctly helps you to improve two key aspects of the security camera's performance - getting the best motion detection possible and keeping the camera hard to detect.

First and foremost, you should place the camera 7 feet above the ground where possible. This is the best height for capturing everything that's going on in the room. Tilting the camera's lens slightly downwards also helps to get better performance out of the camera's sensors. We recommend either installing the magnetic mount at this height in a room or placing it on a high shelf (for example in a bookcase).

In terms of making the camera hard to detect, it's best to place it an area with a lot of surrounding objects, or against a solid white background. Placing it an area by itself or having it against a background with colors will cause the camera to stand out. Of course, you may want to have the camera stand out as a deterrent. However, this may lead to home intruders spotting the camera and disabling it.

A further option for placing your camera is by getting the additional 4-pack of the magnetic wall mounts. You can install these 4 mounts in different locations around your home, and change the position of the camera quickly throughout the day. The 4-pack is particularly useful for customers who want to make use of the camera outdoors, with the magnetic mount keeping the camera secure against strong winds.

  • The Elite Plan gives you up to 60 days of cloud storage and allows you to use up to 15 cameras in your home. The Elite Plan is available for $14.99 month/149$ year. .

For $9.99 per month/$99 per year (per camera), you can get 14 days of 24/7 CVR each month. $19.99 month or $199 year (per camera) gives you 30 days of 24/7 CVR. These plans are booked in addition to either the Premier or Elite plan.
