What is Arlo smart home security?

Arlo smart home security is a collection of wireless security gadgets which help to protect you and your home. Typically, these include a combination of a hub, motion detectors, indoor and outdoor cameras, video doorbells and contact sensors. It connects your security with your personal devices such as smart phones, using home networks and wireless technology. In a nutshell, Arlo is a smart wireless CCTV system.

The central hub wirelessly connects to an app. And, by using the app on your smartphone or tablet you can conveniently monitor your home and garden by receiving alerts either when the alarm is triggered, or you can see suspicious behaviour via your mobile linked to your smart cameras of video doorbell.

When most people think of smart home security, they generally think of CCTV cameras and video doorbells which can be viewed on their phones, but there are many other smart home security solutions.

As with most Wi-Fi security cameras, the connection with your network isn’t always going to be smooth. This is something to note, especially when considering 2K or 4K cameras which require fast and reliable Wi-Fi. In some cases, a monitored security system might be a better way to go.

Who is Arlo?

Based in the USA, Arlo Technologies specialises in wireless surveillance cameras. The company was previously a brand of security products by Netgear.  Arlo produced the world’s first 100 percent wireless high-definition smart home security camera.

Free of power cords and all those wiring hassles, Arlo is now Europe’s number 1 smart home security brand. Intelligence, innovation and thoughtful design combine to make their products stand out.

Arlo Smart Home Security System – Key Features

Wire-Free Installation 

Arlo is known for its wire-free installation products. With every battery-operated camera you’ll receive a selection of choices for setting up and using Arlo cameras every day. Without wires, you’ll be up and running in just a few minutes.

Two-Way Talk

With the Arlo video doorbell, you can have real-time conversations with everyone from delivery drivers to friends who’ve just popped round – via Arlo’s mobile app. All you have to do is open up the live feed, tap on the microphone icon in the camera feed, and start talking!

Built-in Siren

Arlo smart home security systems include a built-in siren in every camera! This may not seem very cutting edge, but it’s definitely one of the most effective deterrents against intruders. The siren can be activated manually or can be triggered through the Arlo app when motion or sound is detected.

Smart Home Integration

You can control the smart home devices in your home with voice control via Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. Additionally, you can pull up live feeds and connect your cameras to a variety of smart home platforms including Apple Homekit and SmartThings amongst others.

Colour Night Vision

After Arlo 2, every Arlo camera has been manufactured with colour night-vision already installed. When you see your property lit up at night – and in clear, full colour, it gives you peace of mind and is one of the main reasons that customers keep going back to Arlo cameras.

If you want to take your smart home security to the next level, you might be interested in what is called ‘Arlo Secure’.

As a Wi-Fi enabled product, all you do is plug in the base station, connect it to your home Wi-Fi (via Ethernet cable to your internet router), then sync it with the wireless cameras. When it’s ready to go, download the Arlo App (iOS and Android) to explore its range of features.

Seamless Arlo app

With the Arlo app you can live stream the camera’s 1080p Full HD view, or you can rewind your cloud recordings and look to see if there’s anything you missed. If you want to add more cameras later, it’s an easy process and you can name each camera such as ‘Back Door’ or ‘Front Porch’ etc.

You can customise settings via the app. Adjust the system to fit your routine by setting specific times to keep watch, making sure you avoid false alarms, and reduce battery usage.

If you want to be extra careful, you can also set audio or motion alerts. This means you’ll be notified if there’s motion or sound where it should be. Magnetic mounts are included, along with mounting screws so it’s simple to put up cameras in a wide range of places yourself.

Weather & night-proof Full HD camera

It’s no good having smart security if your cameras aren’t up to the job, but there’s no issue when it comes to Arlo cameras.
