The Arlo Pros have always been a good choice for smart home security. The Arlo Pro 3 ($499 for a 2-camera kit, with add-on cameras priced at $199 each) sits squarely between the two. While it lacks Arlo Ultra 4K’s headline-grabbing UHD resolution, it offers a broader suite of enhancements that make it — arguably — a better choice than Arlo’s priciest kit.
This new model boosts image resolution ranging from the Arlo Pro 2’s 1080p to a sharper, more vibrant 2K (2560 x 1440 pixels) with support for high dynamic range (HDR), which promises better video quality in very dark or bright areas. A 160-degree field of view may be narrower than the Arlo Ultra 4K’s generous 180 degrees, but it’s a noticeable step up from the 130-degrees offered by the outgoing model.
Hardware installation is simple, with screw and magnetic mounting. The Arlo’s concave new magnetic mounting has good balancing strength and versatility.
The Arlo Pro 3 is wire-free and can be placed anywhere, you can live stream and watch quality HD videos. It has a two way audio so you can listen in and talk back through the built-in speaker and mic from your smart phone, integrated night vision automatically switches on at night to shed light on the smallest wonders and long lasting rechargeable batteries take the expense out of uninterrupted security.
The Arlo Pro 3 is extensively equipped for your home’s protection. More of it’s features include weather resistance, a 100+ decibel smart siren that can be controlled remotely or, triggered by motion or audio, Arlo Basic service that lets you keep the past 7 days of motion- and sound-triggered recordings, for up to 5 cameras. It also has an advanced motion detection with wide-angle PIR motion sensor makes sure no movement will slip through without your notice.
The Arlo Pro 3 is impressive because it works well with thr Apple HomeKit, Amazon Alexa, the Google Assistant, IFTTT & Stringify. Security at it’s best.
