Wire-Free, Indoor/Outdoor with Night Vision, I've never seen these reduced before, so you have a few hours to buy at these prices (Usually £199 for single and £410 for triple.)

These are reasonably well reviewed branded cameras, especially compared to other brands. The only issue is needed to change the battery often in busy places (like roads) where movement is detected.

Good app too.

Motion alerts - receive push notifications and emails if anything moves
Night vision - see what is happening even in the dark
Weatherproof - place Arlo anywhere, indoors or out
HD quality - enjoy sharp 720p live video and save those important moments with free cloud storage

Useful article here on differences between these and the "Pro" models (which I think I'll hang on for)

Why so cold? Seems like a good price to me

Can anyone suggest cheaper alternatives? I'd like to try one but this is a bit pricey - especially if don't find a good use for it after testing.

I'm not sure, perhaps because many people are not sure of the start-up costs of setting up a decent security system.

I agree the Pro model does seem to be a lot better, but unfortunately, £680 for a three cam set up is beyond my means.

​Yes £680 far too steep for me. After being disappointed with numerous Chinese branded "security" cameras at £50 a pop, the cost of this setup doesn't seem too bad.

I was tempted to get the Pro version, but it seems there's a delay with both versions between when it detects motion and starts to record.

Was also looking at Nest Cams and Blink ones, but the Cloud storage costs of them put me off.

I was going to get this but unfortunately it doesn't record audio which is a bit of a let down at this price point. The pro version does record audio but at £600+ that's out of my price range.

A friend who bought arlo (not pro) said it does record audio.

I would not recommend Arlo as security cameras, especially for outdoor use. Arlo Pro is only different in having a rechargeable battery, sound and alarm. I believe the technology and faulty design is the same for both. Positive reviews are coming from those who only looked through the spec and performed the setup but not actually used the camera. Arlo is only good for live viewing, though this will drain the batteries. It has SOME sensitivity to the traffic across (left to right) but not in any other direction, making it tricky to mount, unless you are interested in birds flying over or cars passing down the road. Even if installed as recommended, it misses about half of the events it was supposed to detect. Therefore it's an expensive toy and not a security camera. Night vision may detect the motion but the image is as dark as it is outside, so you will never know what triggered the camera. No pan and tilt mount - make your own. Without email notifications and very limited live view the batteries last around 4 months which totals £15 running costs annually per camera if you buy in bulk. These cameras have been completely mis-advertised by Netgear and will be a waste of your money and time.You may have more luck using them indoors but then they perform not better than any cheap network camera. While the price may be hot, the product is freezing cold.
