The Arlo Pro 2 is not just a camera, but a full-fledged home security system. It consists of wireless camera modules and a base station with a powerful 100-decibel siren.
A sleek mobile app helps you install and control the security system. The Pro 2 is also easy to integrate into a connected home, thanks to Apple HomeKit, Amazon Alexa, and Google Home compatibility.
Once set up, the Arlo Pro 2 can send you notifications or even activate the siren if it detects motion or unusual sound. The weatherproof Arlo Pro 2 camera modules can capture Full HD video, including in nighttime and low-light conditions. Their battery packs can last for months between charges.
You can connect multiple cameras to your Arlo Pro system as your needs change.
The optional add-ons include a floodlight camera and security lights.
A Tom’s Guide editor praised the Pro 2 for offering “a great combination of software, free cloud storage and video quality.” The Arlo Pro 2 comes with a week's worth of free cloud storage for videos (you can also store your footage locally in the base station via a USB stick), as well as support for up to five cameras. More storage options are also available via a subscription.
