From a wireless floodlight cam to intelligent video doorbells: Arlo news
Arlo smart security cameras are widely popular among our users. This year, in addition to a new colour variant for the Arlo Pro 3, a video doorbell and the 100% wireless floodlight camera have been launched.
A floodlight camera without any tangled cables
The unique thing about the Arlo Floodlight Cam isn't its 2K resolution or full-colour night vision, but its 100% wireless configuration. It's flexible and illuminates even the darkest corners of your home.
Another important element is the powerful floodlight with up to 3000 lumens, often compared to car headlights and reacting to movement. Then there's the built-in intelligent siren, which can be triggered automatically or manually via the Arlo App. The smart Floodlight Cam is also compatible with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and Apple HomeKit.
A successor to the Audio Doorbell, the new Arlo Video Doorbell trumps its competition with video calls directly to your smartphone whenever someone rings at your door. Thanks to 2-way audio, you can communicate with your visitor immediately.
Your little guard also has a lot to show off technically: thanks to a 180-degree view range and HD video, you can easily observe visitors from head to toe – even at night. Motion detection and the integrated siren can also be controlled from a distance. The Video Doorbell can be installed above your existing one, but hiring a technician is recommended. Furthermore, the Video Doorbell is compatible with Amazon Alexa & Google Assistant.
A darker Arlo Pro 3
It was launched last autumn, now it's available in black. The Arlo Pro 3 boasts a 2K resolution, 160° diagonal field of view and integrated spotlight as well as a motion detector and siren. In addition to full-colour night vision and 2-way audio, the smart surveillance camera is also compatible with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and Apple HomeKit.
For the new Arlo Ultra and Pro 3 series, the appropriate range of accessories has also been expanded. From replacement batteries and extension cables to the appropriate housing.
Speaking of compatibility, your Arlo Pro 3 can be controlled with Apple HomeKit as well as Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. Even within the Arlo family, compatibility between different generations is guaranteed, but the use of older ecosystems (Pro 2) will result in a degradation of image quality to 1080p.
Arlo Smart App
A free three-month trial version for additional app functions, such as custom activity zones, person, vehicle or animal recognition, is included when purchasing an Arlo Pro 3, Arlo Floodlight or Video Doorbell. To continue accessing cloud recordings, notifications and other extra features, opt for a Smart Plan – starting at CHF 2.79 per month and camera. However, without this «Subscription for Additional Features» you'll still be able to receive livestreams, notifications, auto zoom & track and 2-way audio.
