Arlo Pro 2

The next generation of the Arlo Pro security camera is here (check out the original NETGEAR Arlo or the Arlo Q review here at Craving Tech if you haven’t). The new Arlo Pro 2 includes all the features from the previous generation of Arlo Pro, plus some more.

Arlo Pro 2 includes higher quality 1080p HD video, a plug-in option with solar power and support for Amazon Alexa for live monitoring of your cameras from the Echo Show and TVs connected with FireTV.

With its water resistance capability (IP65 certified), you can place Arlo Pro 2 anywhere you want around the house to cover the main entrances, or even hide the camera away to catch unsuspected intruders by surprise. A good option is to place it somewhere high, out of reach.

It also supports the Arlo Solar Panel (sold separately), so you’ll never have to take the camera down to charge or change the battery. If you can plug the camera in, there is an option to do non-stop recording and keep the videos in the cloud 24/7.

There is now a “3-second Look Back” pre-recording feature which also captures the 3 seconds before a triggered event so you know exactly what happened. Very often we get a triggered motion event but if the subject moves fast enough, we might have missed the tiny window. This should come pretty handy.

More NETGEAR Arlo Pro 2 features include:

  • Motion Activity Zones which highlight the specific areas you wish to monitor through the Arlo app
  • Smart arm/disarm scheduling capability – cameras can be active based on a schedule or location
  • Connectivity to smart home devices – compatibility with IFTTT and Samsung SmartThings
  • Arlo Skill for Amazon Alexa – view live feeds or recorded video from an Arlo camera, on the screen of the Amazon Echo Show or the Amazon Fire TV

Arlo Pro 2 complete system and add-on cameras are available now through authorised NETGEAR partners and other reseller channels and ecommerce sites, starting at an RRP of $349 (AUD).
