Arlo Pro Black Friday Deals 2020
What’s up guys welcome to on our shelves today what I have is the for review and setup of the our low pro by net gear and just in case you missed my unboxing video earlier here it is again in about 10 seconds basically what you get in the box is base station AC power adapter camera AC power adapter Ethernet cable mounting screws magnetic wall mount rechargeable battery camera power adapter cable the auto pro camera itself the base station and some manuals so let’s get started to set this thing up
it’s pretty quick whether you have one camera or a 15 and yes you can add up to 15 cameras number one simply insert the battery into the back of the our low pro camera to download the Arlo app number three connect the base station itself to the internet would be included Ethernet cable fortunately the base station does not use Wi-Fi you have to connect it with a physical cable after you’re done with that connect the power cord to the base station also from there turn on the base station by pressing the on button on the back and then over on the front side wait for the middle light and the left light to turn green number four set up an account either with the app for when a desktop five syncs the camera with the base station you do that by bringing the camera within one to three feet of the base station press and hold the sync button on top of the base station for two seconds wait for the LED light on the right to flash green now press and hold the blue light on top of the camera for about two seconds a blue LED light will start to flash slowly once it flashes rapidly that means the syncing is complete so for those of you aren’t quite sure yet you’re probably asking yourself what exactly is Arlo Pro and why should I get it well basically it’s an outdoor and indoor camera that’s 100% wire free as far as the camera itself connecting to anything yes the base station has to be connected to something but the camera itself does not allowing you to install an HD camera pretty much anywhere you want within 300 feet of the base station without installing and running wires through walls and stuff like that and this isn’t the only system that does that but from what I understand they are one of the best at doing it aside from being wire free it’s ip65 certified so it’s weatherproof rain or snow hotter code will not affect it this shot is from a really bad rainstorm we hit and at one point you couldn’t even see what was going on outside but when it was all over the camera was fine 130 degree wide angle lens two-way audio however the speaker on the camera is not that good so if you’re talking to someone through the camera you have to really yell because it’s just not that loud night vision local back up towards the back of the base station has two USB ports so you can connect a physical hard drive to to store your data flexible power options you can go Wire free with the battery or you can do a wired connection with this included cable 720p HD quality it’s not the best 720p by far but it’s it’s just good enough I would say just good enough it’s kind of compressed here are some sample clips keep in mind these are motion detection clips the base station itself also acts as a siren just in case you want to set it up like that the siren itself is extremely loud over a hundred decibels and the last important feature is free cloud storage up to seven days with an unpaid subscription they do have more plans for a home and business use as of right now the prices break down like this for home use now let’s talk about the Arlo app a little bit I’m not going to go into a full breakdown of the output I will say that it’s a fairly simple app to use it allows you to search by day or a month for a certain recording and you can save it to your phone if you’d like or send it to someone you can totally customize how you want the camera to record whether it’s a certain time of day you pick the schedule and you can also choose how long do you want to record for weather or whether not you want the alarm to go off when it does to text something you can adjust the sensitivity level of the motion detector the type of alerts you want to receive when it does go off either text or email or even both and you can have multiple people receive those alerts as well you can check in any time I defecate you a moment with a live feed to see what’s going on you can do two-way communications take pictures record video and zoom in the app also allows you to check the battery status of the camera which is a very useful feature so you know exactly when it’s about to die or you on its last legs and you can also adjust the resolution so you can choose whether you want best video resolutions middle video resolution or the lowest video resolution which will give you the maximum amount of battery life but overall I would rate the average for its features and reliability a seven out of ten it does freeze from time to time and it does crash from kind of time and sometimes the live feed takes a little bit longer than you would like to bring it up but for the most part it’s very reliable and all the features do work and just a quick close out of the app and reopen up the app will fix whatever the problem is but most of you won’t have any problem before you in this video I want to show you a couple more things about the camera one just how small it is to the two ways to mount it while a with a screw which you screw in here and the other way with a magnetic mount there are different types of magnetic mountains but here’s an example with this one I like these magnetic mounts a lot I’ve been using one for two months and through rain snow high winds it stayed in the exact same position so this is what I use so in conclusion guys after using this camera for two months I am going to give it a score of 8 out of 10 and I don’t always gifting scores but I want to give this a score so you guys can see just how good it is and yes a out of 10 is a really good score and this thing is almost perfect for what I wanted to do one is very reliable as far as being online and doing what it’s actually supposed to do – I’m very impressed with the battery I installed this thing right in the middle of winter and I have yet to recharge the battery yet in fact the battery came from the factory charged to 100% and right now it’s about two months and two weeks later and still at 25% you just saw that in an earlier screenshot and as far as the camera resolution that I’ve been using I’ve been using the best quality so if I was using the lowest setting quality which will maximize my battery life I would probably have about 50 or 60 percent battery life left I’m just guessing but that’s my that’s my guesstimate 3 free cloud storage up to 7 days you cannot beat that there is more storage if you need it plus you can add a hard drive if you want to do that but they’re storing your data for free up to 7 days so that’s pretty cool not to mention you can access that data extremely quickly the way it usually works is when the mailman comes to my door there’s like a three-second delay so once it sees them within 3 seconds I’ll get an alert saying someone in the area of the camera and before he even walks away I can already go to rely sees and see what he’s doing or what’s going on and if I happen to miss it well neck here is going to save that footage for you for up to 7 days and for this thing is extremely easy to set up one of the biggest fears about buying home surveillance systems is putting unnecessary holes in walls and masonary and screwing things up for most people that aren’t in handy is just best to call it professional but that can be pretty pricey this eliminates all of that too – one simple screw for the amount which you can’t really mess that up you shouldn’t mess that up and the camera magnetically connects to it now since I talked about all the good things about this camera let me talk about the two bad things about this camera yes I found two and I want to talk about one the 720p camera resolution I wish it was 1080 T and even if it was it probably wouldn’t be that good with the way they compress files with this thing and I’ll just say it again I mean it’s good enough but I’m definitely not impressed by it it’s not something to brag about but it gets the job done it just gets the job done and – the price these cameras are expensive for one additional auto pro camera. I highly recommend it and this is one of those technologies where I tell people about it and show them how it works and they’ve seemed genuinely interested in getting it speaking of purchasing it I’ll put Amazon affiliate links below if you’re interested in
