My Hubby and I had been talking about getting a home security system for a long time. It is just one of those things we hadn’t done yet. When Best Buy asked me to check out this new NETGEAR Arlo Smart Home security cameras I jumped on the opportunity.
We were looking for a security camera for general peace of mind. It is nice to see when someone is coming up to your door and who it is before you answer, or when the UPS man drops off a box, or if there is ever an intruder! This NETGEAR Arlo Smart Home security 4 camera set is exclusive to Best Buy a great value at $499.99. This products enables you to safeguard your home or business with the 4 motion-activated Netgear Arlo Smart Home security cameras.
The cameras are completely WIRE FREE and can be used indoors and out! Plus they have night vision! I think they have all the bells and whistles I could have asked for. They withstand temperatures from 14° to 122°, capture 720p video footage both during the day and at night, with a 130° field of view, and they are easy to relocate! These would be the perfect security cameras for someone who rents because they aren’t permanent.
We decided that 3 of our 4 cameras would go outside and 1 went inside. These are not close together at all! In fact I was worried about the one in the back yard and it still gets a strong signal! These puppies can go up to 300ft from the base station! INCREDIBLE! They will tell you if the signal is weak and they need to be moved closer. We haven’t had any issues with them at all. So far we are really impressed!
Finally, I just downloaded the ARLO app to my smartphone. Apps are available for you to view live video from your compatible Android, Apple® iOS, Amazon Kindle, Windows or Mac device. Plus you can set them to be motion activated so they start recording when they detect movement. You can even schedule times you want the motion to turn on and off. The image was caught while we were at soccer last week. Someone was walking to our door and the neighbor stopped to talk to them. It is nice to see what goes on when we aren’t home.
Along with the ARLO Security cameras we are using this Netgear® Nighthawk™ DST Router and DST Adapter with Geek Squad included – new and exclusively at Best Buy. It is the best router I have ever owned, and trust me, I go through routers.
In our house we have a lot of Wi-Fi devices that tend to put a drain on our router. This Netgear Nighthawk was made for that! The DST Adapter helps extend the range of the router, and you can even prioritize device connections. I loved that it only took me a few minutes to set up with the help of the 1 year of free Geek Squad support. No appointment necessary! They are available 24/7.
