  • Advanced scheduling and geofencing controls
  • 7 days of free cloud storage
  • Optional local backup via USB
  • Backward compatible with Arlo Pro
  • Scalable multi-camera plans for businesses
  • You can sound the siren even when you're not at home - a potential deterrent for any intruders
  • When used on mains power you can set activity zones
  • So you'll only be alerted if there's motion in these areas
  • The two-way microphone lets you hear what's go

The editors didn't like

  • $480 is pricey for a two-camera kit. It's difficult to angle the cameras unless you mount and attach them to the included magnetic bases (which requires a more permanent install). Alexa and Google Assistant integration didn't work well in our testing
  • Premium price tag
  • Some features limited to wired
  • Reliability remains a question mark
  • Base station difficult to set up with some routers
  • Cameras need to be charged using lead and plug provided
  • Quite an expensive set up compared to other brands
  • Expensive
  • No activity zones unless powered
  • App interface a little convoluted
  • Free storage is only for seven days - any longer requires a subscription
  • It uses a base station that connects to your router - it may look unsightly
  • Depending upon where your router is positioned

  • Battery powered, Sharp, 1080p footage, Seven days free clip storage
  • Expensive
  • The Arlo Pro 2 is an expensive piece of kit, but it's hard to think of any missteps it makes along the way. The footage it captures is excellent, the motion and audio detection works well and it's pleasingly flexible.For many, the sheer number of features...

  • Easy to set up and install, Excellent control over recording, Cameras work with new Ultra Base Station
  • No activity zones unless powered
  • Verdict There are few systems that are as powerful or as flexible as the Arlo Pro 2. Giving you indoor or outdoor coverage, the system can be expanded to use multiple cameras. Image quality is generally very good – although a touch soft during the night –...

  • We have no doubt that the Arlo Pro 2 is one of the best smart security cameras on the market, but it is an expensive kit regardless of how many cameras you want. The value is better if you want multiple so if you just want one then you might want to look...

  • Abstract:  As with most recent items it is controlled by your SmartPhone via the Arlo App that you download from the iOS or Android store, next create an Arlo account. Now with the camera within a metre of the base station follow the onscreen instructions to link th...

  • It's expensive, but also the best wi-fi security camera system you can buy for your home. Easy to use, it records crisp, sharp video and even stores it in a secure area online for no extra cost. With plenty of flexibility and add-ons like the Arlo securit...

  • Premium price tag, Some features limited to wired, Reliability remains a question mark
  • Simplifying home security isn't easy, but Netgear has covered most of the essentials with the Arlo Pro 2. The 1080p cameras offer decent quality, they are IP65-certified for both indoor and outdoor use, and by using wireless connectivity, the entire kit c...
