Connection issues 4/5
Issues where app will disconnect my devices over time. I would rate closer to five if not for this issue.
Arlo App 5/5
Easy to use app. Good images. Very little issues. Highly recommend this system.
Arlo Camera 4/5
Bought 4 cameras about 1.5 years ago. Picture is great. It burns thru batteries too quick making it expensive to operate & the batteries I buy are not always fully charged. I would like to be able to have audio too. I had a Blink camera which had audio but not a HD picture. I’m aware that I can go to another Arlo camera like the Pro & get rechargeable batteries, audio, etc., but I’ve got too much money tied up in these right now. I use them for security & also set them up on my deck with some food where I recently filmed 9 raccoons (4 cubs) in my backyard. My biggest complaint is that after about a year, I started having problems with all of the cameras going offline every few days. Every time I get ready to leave the house & go to arm them, I can’t . I would have to remove the batteries & try to sync or remove the device & add it back to my account. I rarely have time to do that on my way out the door, so that means that I can’t arm the cameras & must wait till later......then repeat the whole thing again when it goes offline in a few more days. If I’m out of town & it happens then I’m out of luck. If you are not using them much, then for the price they are a good value. I would definitely want to try the newer model like the Pro with rechargeable batteries & audio. Hopefully, the offline problem has been fixed since I bought mine. I give it 4 stars.
Geofencing Still Not Working 1/5
App is okay except for inconsistent geofencing feature. Says I’m away when home, says I’m home when I’m away.
You need it 5/5

Arlo cameras 5/5
They serve the purpose I purchased them
Delay a little long
It would be a nice feature to have an indicator in the device windows that would let you know the alarm is on or off. -Thanks
Arlo Billing 4/5
Got a message saying credit card needed to be renewed. Message said to go to site or app. Go there and there is no way to enter new info and no phone # to call. PIA - but love the system. They need better customer service.
Very good quality picture. Wished the batteries lasted a little longer but overall great product.
App ratings 3/5
Cameras are good but sometimes there’s glitches in the video
Love it ! Works great. 5/5
Love it works great!
5 seconds delay on the motion detection 2/5
The wifi camera has a 5 second delay to capture the image on the motion detection. This is really bad. Also sometimes the motion detector doesn’t detect if a person is just passing by in front of the camera. I believe this is due because of the 5 seconds delay on the motion detector. If this problem could be fix, this camera would be awesome. It’s a shame.
Arlo Review 5/5
By what nane do you wanr!
My daughter in law installed these cameras at my home after a young boy vandalized parts of my home. I felt the need to be able to produce evidence of this kids evil deeds.
These cameras are reasonably priced so I now have peace of mind 24/7.
Thank you Arlo!!!
Not reliable 3/5
The cameras sometimes do not record an event that a notification happens. Also the motion zones are not very good.
Works well 5/5
By redneck ohio
Easy to use
Too many issues 2/5
By poor des
Arlo itself has too many issues, so it makes using the app also difficult
Hot for trafficked areas 3/5
Cameras and apps does not work smoothly together, or they each simply have their own bugs or flaws. The app does however definitely work better then the Arlo Pro 2. And that’s not saying much because the ARpo2 does not live up to any of the claims that it’s supposed to do. So I guess it make sense that the app as a few flaws. But the apps flaws has nothing that can’t live with. Unlike the ARpro2
Glitch in app 1/5
My Arlo app recently updated and all my cameras show the power has been disconnected even though all cameras and the hub are currently receiving power. It is very frustrating because I have to click “got it” every time and then can view my cameras. I don’t know what happened to the app but I have had nothing but disappointment with the arlo app and cameras.
Too slow to load 3/5
Too slow to load video
Needs humanizing 3/5
For an avg tech it’s fine and completely manageable. For the rest of us ?!?!?!
Need some work 2/5
HD is not clear, motion detector is not to good...
It's good. Just one complaint. 3/5
Love having the security and it works great! EXCEPT, the geolocation doesn't always work... meaning when I leave the house (with my phone) it doesn't always arm the system. Which also means when I come home I get alerts that there's movement (which would be me). I have to log in to the app and then it'll recognize that I'm home and disarm. This happens roughly half the time.
Great quality 5/5
I have 3 cameras that are easy to use, adjust as needed, and recharge. App is very user friendly and no monthly charges.
Base won’t update 1/5
Base station won’t update once you hit update Which is making the cameras not work so you can’t see anything when someone walks in front of the cameras nor can see the live feed.
Easy to use 4/5
Pleased with the coverage and the notifications.
The best wireless cameras hands down! 5/5
Very user friendliness, great quality videos, and so easy to share!
The cameras systems are horribly slow... like awful slow!! 1/5
No. No ..
Poor battery life 3/5
Poor battery life. I have to charge batteries every couple of days. Customer service told me to change the recording time but if you do that then you will miss details if an event should happen. There is also a delay in recording.
Amazing app, amazing product 5/5
By Anthony in South Florida
Thank you for this accessible, easy to use home security solution. Truly amazing stuff that no home owner should be without.
Very easy to navigate and change settings. Arlo is kinda pricy but I think is worth the price.
Good product 5/5
By Ligma Ballz pls
Camera has a good picture and decent range.
Going off line 3/5
Seems to go off line and doesn’t reset its self spoke other devices
Good but could be awesome 2/5
I was like you once let me se if I can cover a year of use in 100 words.
I asked my self “Should I buy Arlo or one of the others ?”
It’s good and stable certainly good enough to do the job.
The camera hardware
The cameras are all pretty good make sure you buy the resolution you need and not just the picture you like to look at. Eg FULL HD for face recognition camera positions or licence plate.
The base station
It’s ok but the range is variable it needs to be in the middle of your properties RF density.
Buy 2 that way you’re sure to have coverage
Quite good !
But the door bell is rubbish.
I’d still install Arlo for retrofit
I left this till last the cloud service doesn’t record all cameras 24x7
Read the product info !
Camera app 5/5
I’m very impressed with the Improvements to the app (awesome)
The app has been awesome for me, it allows me to view activities and make camera corrections.
Geo location is always off 2/5
Does not get it right when I leave and return to my house. Keeps the cameras on when I am at home.
One more camera 1/5
It would be nice to have one more camera. Bought two 3 packs, bummed out.
Pink display 3/5
Works good but it has a pink picture
Good system. 2/5
Everything works well except that the function to connect an external hard drive doesn’t work. Every time I connect it and then use the app it tells me the hard drive needs to be formatted. When I do it it tells me the drive failed to format. Please fix this. I can’t use this critical function. I formatted to fat32 standard and using a 2TB drive like it’s specified in the instructions.
Overall ok 3/5
By Otis 70
App is slow to access cameras. Would love to look at camera right away when it detects motion.
Easy to use and setup 5/5
Good do-it-yourself wireless system. Some nuances that you have to work through but would recommend highly.
Arlo app 4/5
Very good system 5/5
We’ve had the camera for nearly a year and are pleased with the picture quality. One improvement would be an option for a
Longer recording time. Would be nice to be able to set recording time for certain times or for when you are away. Could set it from the app fairly easily with the right software — I would think. We’re happy with system.
By Sham from FL
The app is good for the most part. Some bugs exist with regards to the geofencing; ie there are times (about 50% in my 6 months of ownership) where the geofence doesn’t update when you get into the range. I’ve found a helpful (yet annoying) work around where if you briefly change the setting (ie from geofence to armed), and change it back, it’ll then update to the appropriate geofence setting (home or away). Otherwise I like it.
It’s alright to record, not for live streaming 2/5
Can’t use for live feed, always seems to have a 15-45 second delay even with 100 mbps internet speeds.
App is as good as advertised
Arlo pro 2 4/5
Missing additional alert siren
Bought Arlo for geofencing, never works
