These days you might think that any smart security system will do the trick in keeping you informed while you’re away from home. While it’s true that any camera might be better than no camera when it comes to home security, the reality is that you tend to get what you pay for. Arlo makes a whole host of easy-to-install, all-weather, wire-free security solutions: cameras, video doorbells, and even floodlight cameras to light up outdoor corridors or back yards. And all are enabled with Arlo Smart to deliver advanced people, package, vehicle detection, and more.

A smart front-entry security system like the video doorbell is a must-have (especially, to keep an eye on packages and deliveries). To secure other parts of the home, consider Arlo Pro 4 2K HDR security camera with color night vision to capture every detail, day or night. Arlo leads the pack on both, part of a whole suite of security devices. And their privacy pledge sets them apart from other big names in the field because the point of home surveillance is to give you insight into your private space, not a corporation.

Digital Trends named the Arlo Video Doorbell one of the best smart doorbells in 2020, noting that it’s packed with smart features that can tell the difference between all sorts of activity, from package deliveries to pets. Not only is the doorbell powered by some great intelligence, but it also doesn’t suffer from fisheye distortion—instead you get a full, head-to-toe, 180-degree viewing angle that allows you to clearly see what’s going on. Toss in night vision, clear two-way audio, and prerecorded messaging, and you get one feature-packed video doorbell. And coming soon, Arlo is adding a wire-free Video Doorbell.

In September, Digital Trends gave the Arlo Pro 3 security camera its Editor’s Choice award and 9 out of 10 stars; the latest model only moves the needle up from there. The Arlo Pro 4 is a standalone camera that operates without a separate hub—just attach it to a magnetic mount, no wires required, and let it run for 6 months on a single battery charge. It’s armed with color night vision, a bright spotlight, and a siren, so it can detect intruders in the dark and also let them know they’ve been spotted. Like the doorbell, it’s also equipped with two-way audio. But most importantly, its 2K HDR video is crisp and clear, and with a 160-degree wide-angle view, allows you to track and zoom on moving objects with clarity.

For total peace of mind, Arlo Smart subscription services deliver what hardware alone can’t. Using the power of advanced AI and computer-vision technology, Arlo lets you filter notifications to just the ones that matter; be it people, package, vehicle, and animal.  You can also personalize your notification and create custom activity zones to ensure you only get alerts for what matters, reducing those that are less important. And, if you see something worrisome, e911 is just a tap away. Swiftly contact emergency responders near the camera’s location—not the location that you and your smartphone are at—saving valuable time and getting you help faster in the case of an emergency.

Then there’s the added convenience of using Arlo with your favorite voice assistant. Maybe your home has both Alexa and Google Hub users: Arlo is one of the few that works across multiple (and competing) platforms—including Alexa, Google, and Apple HomeKit—which makes it easy to integrate with any combination of smart-home devices. You can even get Arlo notifications on your Apple Watch, right on the lock screen with a thumbnail preview of whatever triggered the recording.

In 2020 you need smarter home security, and Arlo is the perfect security solution to protect your home and family.
