Netgear Arlo Smart Outdoor Security Camera

Safe Distancing

Netgear Arlo

Netgear Arlo (UK version here).

Arlo outdoor models come with generous 7 days of free cloud storage. In addition to weather resistant, they have standard smart features like notification, motion detection, 2-way audio and so on. The newer models include improved features like color night vision, motion-activated spotlight, higher resolution of 4K HDR, wider view angle of 180º and even free subscription plan for 1st year,

These models would have been our first choice if they work without base station. With base station, Arlo outdoor models are more expensive than competitors which do not require one.

What to Check Before Buying

Verify that you can download the free app and run the app in your smartphone. If you can’t find this app in your local Google Play store or Apple App Store, then download it from US app store directly.

Where to Go From Here

Due to the international shipping costs and custom duties, it’s worth buying locally even when the price is slightly higher than overseas prices. The only 2 reasons why you should buy the recommended items here are: 1) the items are not available locally, 2) the local prices are significantly higher.
