Top customer reviews
I had the system up and running in five minutes. Super easy, you simply connect the base station to your router using the supplied cat5e cable. I had a shorter cat6 cable so I actually used this instead. After it is plugged into the router you go to the Arlo website and create your account. The final step was to put batteries into the cameras and pair them to the base station. Both cameras were paired almost instantly! Compared to running camera wires or dealing with powerline networking (Alert) this was a breeze.
Nice looking little cameras and they have a bit of weight to them. They aren't heavy by any means but feel like quality little units. They can sit on any flat surface or you may use the supplied magnetic mounts to install on a wall. They also have a tripod type adapter on the bottom which may open up some additional mounting possibilities.
There are three options for video quality:
High quality (reduced battery life)
Balanced (compromise of image & battery life)
Best life (reduced image quality)
I used the suggested balance mode and found the image quality to be comparable to my old non-HD wired system and a bit lower in quality than my old Alert cameras. I changed the mode to high quality and the image improved to be comparable to the Alert cameras. For my purposes the balanced mode is fine. I've attached some pictures of my patio to compare the two.
The cameras automatically switch to night vision mode when it gets dark. I found the image to be clear and sharp. I attached an image of my garage so you can see the clarity. This was taken during the day with only a small amount of light coming in through the door to the garage.
The website is easy to navigate but there are not as many options available as my Logitech Alert site had. You may schedule when your cameras will record on motion or just have them record on motion at all times or never at all. There are some rules and modes that you may create but I haven't explored those options yet. One missing feature seems to be being able to define the motion detection zone for each camera. You can adjust the image itself using pan & zoom controls (which may in itself adjust the detection zone) but with my old Alert cameras I could zoom the image all the way out but set specific areas that would trigger recording. You can setup the cameras to email specific addresses when they detect motion. In testing these seem to be sent within 10-30 seconds after movement occurs, pretty good in my opinion! The email contains a snapshot from the camera and you can click a link to play it without having to log into the Arlo site. This is much improved over the Alert emails that I used to receive.
I used the site successfully on my Windows 8.1 PC, a Windows 8.1 tablet & a Windows RT tablet. My biggest complaint with the website is that when accessing from my Windows 8.1 phone it defaults to a mobile page directing you to download the IOS or Android app. Of course neither of these works with a Windows phone so you are out of luck if you were hoping to monitor your cameras from a Windows phone. To be fair, I already knew there was no Windows phone app when I bought the system but I hoped there would be a mobile optimized site that would work with my phone. When will manufacturers stop ignoring Windows phone users? Fortunately the email that is sent when motion is detected does allow (even on a Windows phone) you to play the video that was captured. So from a Windows phone you can play videos after they are triggered (when they are emailed to you) but you cannot stream your cameras in real time.
Video playback (from website)
You may view your videos from the website and they are categorized by the date and time they were recorded. It's easy to delete both single videos and multiple videos at once. You may also choose to download a video, share it and mark favorites. I have not tested these three functions yet though.
Live streaming (from website)
The site basically gives you static images of each camera's view with a play button. Once you click the play button it connects to the cameras and within a few seconds live playback occurs. This is comparable to what I experienced with my Alert cameras and being 100% wireless totally acceptable to me. When you are live streaming you can adjust the image to play in small windows, a medium sized window or full screen. You may also take a snapshot of the image as well using a camera button.
As I have recently decided to move to a 100% Microsoft (PCs, tablets & phones) environment I have not tested the Android and IOS apps so I cannot speak to their functionality. I hope that Netgear decides to release a Windows phone app so I have live streaming functionality from my phone someday. I'm sure all of you Android & IOS folks are well supported though!
The free subscription enables you to manage up to five cameras. There are different subscription levels that provide more cloud-based storage and the ability to manage more cameras. I have not explored these as I only need five cameras.
I've had my system up and running for about 16 hours and haven't experienced any dropped cameras. The ease of setup and excellent video quality (for a completely wireless system) have left me impressed. The biggest disappointment is the lack of support for Windows phone but I'm definitely in the minority with that concern. I would like to see Windows phone support (either an app or a mobile optimized site) and the ability to specify detection zones. I want to expand my system to five cameras but the add on cameras are not available until the end of the month. Even with the few disappointments I'm giving it five stars because it is the best that I've used to date.
Anyway, this is the first review that I've ever posted on Amazon so I hope you find it helpful! I'll update if I have any issues, challenges with more than two cameras or discover any new features!
Some cons. You will have to replace batteries so if they are mounted high you probably have to get a ladder out every 4 to 6 months. There is a delay from the time it detects motion to when it records the delay is approximately 1 to 2 seconds.
I decided to return the Arlo. I did get a few recordings of nothing (maybe my sensitivity was to high) but also battery went from 3 bars to two bars in less than a week. I'll admit I had the recording length set to 30 secs instead of the default 10 sec so that may be a big contributing factor.
I'm waiting on Blink http://www.blinkforhome.com/index.html
