-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You will need a base station to power these, you'll find them on eBay or you can buy a 1 camera Arlo kit which will include a base station to go with this camera.

This is the lowest ever price on Amazon, but also never seen it this cheap elsewhere.

They also have a range of other cameras, some with 2-way audio, wired internal camera's and newly announced a baby camera. These will all work with the standard base station.

Looks like a Curry's price match for overpriced tat.

Obviously you've used them substantially. Perhaps you can name an alternative with similar functionality and is completely wire free?

Yup. Toytown tat.

Thanks, great review.

I was going to build a bird box this spring with a camera attached for my daughter to watch.

No, I didn't see that, nor did it pop up in suggestions. I spotted it because I had a camelcamelcamel price trigger set. No need for the hostility.

This is also available on Prime Now which means people like myself can get them delivered within an hour if you have Prime.

Hey, we may disagree but that isn't going to stop me helping people waste less money

Excellent cameras, thanks OP!

excellent camera I have 3 of them. Nothing else on the market like this. New pro version released so probably why these are being discounted. New ones are more than double this price though for one camera.

New Pro cameras have their place but not in my household.

I can see why you may want one above your front door, but otherwise can't see a useful exterior application.

I have a Ring Video Doorbell so even that is out of the question for me. If you want of those PM for a discount code.

I am personally interested in their new babycam, could get rid of my Logitech circle then and have 1 less app to tend to, not in the UK yet though.

I have a couple of these and considering getting a third. Great cameras and the app/web app works well. The major drawback is that they chew through batteries if you are doing lots of recording. Each camera uses four CR123 batteries such as these amazon.co.uk/gp/…c=1 . I would be delighted to hear if anyone has found any cost-effective rechargables.

Great deal. Thanks.

hot from me

When you say recording, do you mean the upload to the cloud eats batteries if it is left on 24/7? Or something else?

That is one of the reasons I abandoned this concept of battery-powered cams. I found it difficult to find cost-acceptable branded rechargeables, so used some moderate-cost no-brand allegedly rated 650mAh each. Soon became sick of swapping them out. Then employed a hack involving an external carrier with greater capacity, but this completed trashed the concept of compact and (arguably) aesthetically pleasing / neutral appearance and didn't particularly improve longevity. Eventually ditched the toys for a traditional solution.

If your batteries aren't lasting 3-6 months you're either setting your recording time too long, have weak WIFI and/or have it poorly positioned and recording too many false triggers.

Mine have been spot on over the last year, perfectly adequate IQ and trouble free installation for home environments, plus their versatility means installing them to cover things like your shed are a 2 minute job.

Horses for courses and completely dependent on your requirements but I don't find the battery cost prohibitive particularly in light of the free 7 day recording (I have 4 cameras). My Ring Video Doorbell costs me £24 a year for video archiving, my Logitech Circle wants me to pay £3/£7 a month based on additional functionality, and that's per device...

I change my batteries 3 times a year, I buy them in bulk, in fact the last ones I bought from Amazon warehouse, cheap.

Those of you with this - Can you tell me more about the cloud interface please....

Has anyone found a way to download the cloud stored recordings in full and an automated fashion? Ideally finding a way to use IFTTT to trigger a download to an FTP service or something would be ideal. Ideally don't want another server running for this!

Depending on the above, I was looking at buying the Pro version when it is available in the UK.

Cheers

It is encrypted end-to-end. I'm guessing the private key is Netgear side so I don't think it's possible to automate locally.

From a server side I expect they'd not welcome the additional bandwidth of automated services and the load that puts on the server wouldn't be properly baselines if it were commonplace.

Not something I've looked in to but might struggle.

What's your use case, or rather why is it a requirement?

Thanks - just want a longer term storage solution in the cloud (without paying them for it). I guess I can record to a USB drive connected to the base station, and transfer them to my NAS and host them in my own cloud.

Agreed they do seem to be excellent. Interested how to get more functionality through IFTTT and what the USB Port on the rear of the Base Station is mean't to be for too.

Mine turn on smart bulbs in the hall and flash my living room lights if motion detected.

Can also log detections to a spreadsheet on Drive et al, lots of different things.

Where are you have deliberately traversed to a deal I posted to make a comment that has nothing to do with the deal. Bravo!

Noob here and just got broken in to on Friday, we are expecting our first child soon so looking to beef up the home security, would you recommend this as a home security monitoring system? Aside from something like this looking to get a ring.com door bell and also a house alarm

The Arlo has appeared in the US in a rechargeable version, there are Amazon reviews on that. In the UK Netgear are probably dumping all old stock before introducing the new version arlo.com/en-…ro/
