I love it! The quality of components; the ingenuity of the functionality and physical design; the flexibility of ways to employ the devices for monitoring, and so far,(1 year), the durability. Perfect product! The “doorbell “ systems are stupid! The first thing they do is tell an intruder that you HAVE a security system, and then, whether or not anyone is actually monitoring that system! All the intruder needs is a can of spray paint or a piece of tape to totally disable the system!
I put my ARLO cameras in places that are inconspicuous and unreachable. I want to see what potential intruders are doing when they DON’T think they are being watched! The movement detection feature tells me immediately when anything enters my security perimeters, and then, I can watch them to decide whether they are a threat. My system has detected and recorded, cats, birds and even hornets at my front door! I mounted an ARLO camera high in a tree at the back corner of my backyard; I can’t see or reach it, and I know where it is! This camera displays the entire yard and detects movement when I draw the shades on my back door!
I feel COMPLETELY secure and in control with my ARLO products and system. Five stars!
Excellent video; app not so much
When the system is working it works beautifully providing excellent video quality! I have two concerns that bother me somewhat: I have to reload the app several times a month when recorded events are cataloged but the video is brown and won’t play. After deleting the app and reloading it works well. I would prefer that the activity detection actually works when I’m running on battery power. If it did just limit activity detection to the activity zone that would be fantastic however any movement anywhere in the field of view whatsoever triggers a recording. That’s not all bad but I would prefer that it worked properly on battery power. A couple of times now I’ve had a problem with the hub going off line and others around the country have told me that their hubs were off/disabled at the same time so apparently there is some sort of system problem at all those facilities somewhere. I thought my hub was bad; nothing I tried worked even though I followed support instructions implicitly for a couple of hours each time. Don’t get me wrong though. I wouldn’t trade for my system. I just wish these little things were properly addressed and fixed fairly soon. Otherwise I certainly would have given a five star rating versus three stars. I chose Arlo because I found Netgear equipment to be outstanding and I’ve had very little experience with competitive equipment.
Cameras are good, but they find ways to charge you more
My main reason for giving them 1 star is because I bought the video doorbell and when my free trial ended it just told me motion on the doorbell vs vehicle, person, or animal which I was fine with. Tonight I saw a neighbors cat get attacked by a dog from across the street. I thought maybe I can check my doorbell to see if I could get more information about the dog and maybe verify which cat was attacked if the cat caused the doorbell to activate, because when I pulled in they were off camera at that time. After I chased the dog away I lost track of the cat, so I could not tell him which cat because it happened so fast, assuming the cat would have activated my camera. I could not do that because I do not pay, so it did not save the video, if there was video, to the cloud for 7 days because of that. The regular arlo cameras get saved for a week, but not the doorbell. So I paid about $150 for a doorbell to tell me there is motion, but not record anything unless I pay a monthly fee!! I do not know if the other companies using video doorbells charge or not, but I would think at least record but do not tell me if it is an animal, person, or vehicle unless I look at the video. I would not have a problem with them charging and granting 30 days for the doorbell camera and telling me who or what is causing the camera to operate, but unless I am watching I will not know who or what caused the camera to activate.
