The Negear Arlo Pro security camera is considered one of the best wireless cameras on the market. Today Netgear have announced that the next version of the Arlo Pro, the Arlo Pro 2, is now available here in Australia.
The Netgear Arlo Pro 2 comes packs with features, options and accessories demonstrating why it is considered the best on the market in that space.
The Arlo Pro 2 improves on the previous Arlo Pro with the addition of 1080P HD video, an option for a plug in solar panel along with support for Amazon Alexa to control viewing of live and recorded feeds.
The Arlo Pro 2 is ideal for indoors or outdoors and includes a IP-65 certification to withstand rain, sun, heat or cold. It is truly wireless with a rechargeable battery (which can be kept charged with a solar panel).
Indoors, while plugged into a power socket, provides faster motion detection and faster beginning of recording. It also offers a “Look Back” recording feature where if motion is detected it creates the video from three seconds before the motion was recorded.
With the Look Back recording, a 130-degree field of view, night vision along with the advanced motion detection technology the Arlo Pro 2 promises to be a great solution to your home security requirements. The base station also includes an alarm which can be activated remotely via the Arlo app, by motion detection or by audio detection.
Of course there are online storage options possible. Included with the purchase of each camera system is a basic Arlo plan which includes online storage for a rolling seven days for up to five cameras for the life of the product. Of course there are options for greater storage and camera numbers if that is something you require.
Thankfully, if you already own an Arlo Pro there is no reason to throw the baby out with the bath water with the Arlo Pro 2, Arlo Pro and Arlo wire-free cameras being interchangeable. Arlo Pro 2 cameras can be added to already-installed Arlo Pro or Arlo Wire-Free base station.
The Arlo Pro 2 Add-on Camera is now available for RRP$349. The Arlo Pro 2 Security Camera System with two cameras and including base station is available now starting at an RRP$799. Accessories are sold seperately with the charging station selling for RRP$99, the rechargeable battery similar at $98, skins to hide the cameras for RRP$39, and the solar panel for RRP$149.
