Whether I’m at home or out and about, I want to know that my family and my home are as safe and secure as possible. The Netgear Arlo Smart Home helps me do that. Netgear Arlo Smart Home adds an extra layer of safety to my home with four indoor/outdoor cameras that offer 720p HD video and a handy app.
Netgear Arlo Smart Home – Next Level Home Surveillance
The Netgear Arlso Smart Home offers next generation home surveillance. Their set up features four indoor/outdoor HD cameras, an app for when I’m on the go, and it works with the best router in the industy – the Netgear Nighthawk.
I was thoroughly impressed with the Netgear Arlo Smart Home system. The cameras offered crisp, clear video, and I was even able to see what was happening at night. The app made it easy for me to access the video and see exactly what was going on in my home, even when I was away. Another feature that I loved was the motion-activated recording and 130 degree field of view. Those two features working together mean no wasted footage and a viewing angle that lets me see everything that’s happening.
Arlo by Netgear
Let’s start with the core component of this smart home surveillance system – the Arlo. You can get Arlo cameras at other retailers, but you’ll pay for it. With their “Only at Best Buy” offer, you can get the four camera Netgear Arlo set for $499.99 at Best Buy. That’ s a great deal.
Even though I laid out some of the great features of the Netgear Arlo, I want to give them again in bullet form for easy reference.
- Completely wireless
- Indoor/outdoor – weatherproof for temperatures from 14 degrees to 122 degrees
- 720p footage with 130 degree field of view
- Night vision
- Motion activated video that sends e-mail or app alerts
- Convenient app
The other half of the Netgear Arlo system is the hard core router it uses – the Netgear Nighthawk. This router is the brainchild of Netgear and Best Buy, and it’s designed to provide us with an easy, all-in-one solution for better support of our WiFi connected devices. The Nighthawk is more than a router, it’s a high performance WiFi machined designed to give owners the best possible WiFi experience.
- Includes one Dead Spot Terminator adapter to place in areas with little or no reception. Additional adapters are available.
- Supports over 10 connected devices.
- Prioritize devices for streaming videos or music.
The third and final piece of the Netgear Arlo Smart Home system is Geek Squad. I always get Geek Squad protection when I purchase anything from Best Buy. With Geed Squad, you’ll get all the tech support your need for your Netgear Arlo system, and with their phone and web service, you can get that support 24/7.
A Better Surveillance System
The Netgear Arlo Smart Home system is a better way to keep eyes on your home when you’re away, whether on a trip or just at the office. Their indoor/outdoor, 720p, motion-activated cameras provide crisp image detail day or night, and their companion app makes it easy to stay connected with what’s going on. When you factor in the Nighthawk router and Geek Squad support, you’ve got a fantastic system in the Netgear Arlo.
