Peace of Mind with NETGEAR Arlo Wire-Free Security System.
Knowing that your family is safe is the best feeling in the world. It’s even better when you can actually see any potential danger or theft that can occur when you aren’t looking. With the NETGEAR Arlo security cameras, you can do just that from just about anywhere in the world you may be.
One of the best things about this system is that it is 100% wire-free, it literally takes 10-15 minutes to set the cameras up and you don’t have to worry about cords and wires. Once you connect the cameras to the base station to your WiFi router, you download the free NETGEAR Arlo app, add your cameras and you are literally ready to go!
You don’t have to worry about the weather when it comes to having your cameras set up outdoors. The magnetic mounts make it easy to mount them to just about anywhere. They can withstand nature and with sharp 720p HD video, you’ll be amazed at how clear the footage is.
We decided to install them on both ends of our home, that way I can keep an eye out on the front of the home, the front door and the driveway. I can see who is at the door right from my phone as it pushes notifications whenever it detects motion. It’s great to avoid solicitors and to see when the courier arrives. It also helps in catching any thieves if anyone gets any ideas.
Even though when we are away on vacation, we always have family house sit. But, having another line of defense is absolutely beneficial. You have access to free cloud storage, where you can store and review the last 7 days of recordings for free. You have upgrade options available if you need more and you can always download any footage you want right through your phone or computer.
A Part of Your Life.
I have been using our cameras from the very day we installed them. I no longer miss packages because I get notifications that someone is at the front door and in seconds, I can look who it is. I’ve had visitors who stopped by to tend to the house and I’ve been able to see any activity.
The surveillance doesn’t stop at night, the Arlo has crisp and clear night vision
One of the best parts of Arlo is that you can use it with IFTTT. You can create simple IFTTT Recipes to connect Arlo to other devices and apps to do things like getting your smart lights to turn on when Arlo senses motion. Since I have smart lights, I have been able to connect them to my Arlo and I definitely have peace of mind.
The Arlo is very affordable and start at $329.99. In comparison to other systems that are more complicated and not as high quality, this is bang for your buck. There are a few options, all which come with more cameras and more ways to make your home smarter.
Once you have the system, you can connect up to 15 cameras to the cloud. We are going to add more cameras to have access in every angle you can imagine!
