It is now time to update and check your security detail at home as the shorter days are now moving in swiftly and there has been many incidents of pet theft too this product offers a two in one solution giving you a good recording of incidents with a built in floodlight and a piercing alarm tone.
The installation is simple you will need a drill and most likely a masonry drill bit and a screwdriver and once mounted and your device is charged up you just set up the device in the settings to your needs and leave it there to do its job and that is done rather well not missing a beat for notifications..
The app is as always but now with some new features including 2FA for an extra layer of security,we have covered the app before but go through it quickly again in the video review, All the same offerings are present as before with a simple to use UI that makes it easy to use and set up with the option of geofencing and also zones to limit false notifications and focus on certain areas within the cameras range, A lesson I have learned from before was just leaving the camera on full view it was picking up neighbours washing blowing on the line for example but this is not a bad thing and shows just how effective the camera is..
This floodlight camera can be used either in the front or rear of your house and it can be moved easily should you wish too, I have the front of my house covered so used out the back garden as this offers a better wider view and with the floodlight built in it gives you more in return over a standard camera and good high quality visuals so any intruder will be picked up before they even see the camera if they have not done their homework. Most criminals are opportunists,some professional and now use drones to check out peoples property for evaluation to see if you have dogs and so on the property and what else might be worth robbing.
You have two way audio again which is fine and of course the really annoying piercing alarm which is good and you also have IFTTT and smart assistant options and this time around no base station is needed to use which I like. Another thing I need to point out is your data privacy which is a growing concern with people buying such equipment but Arlo have said they are committed to protecting your privacy
Overall this is a great product and easy to use and set up and has worked flawlessly during my test run.
