It works sometimes. 6/20/2020 7:55:10 AM

Pros: I bought this to check in on my back office should the alarm go off. The resolution is good and nice to have audio.

Cons: Sometimes the remote login just sits and waits and waits. If I needed quick access I'd be in trouble.

Overall Review: I don't think I would buy this again. I'll probably buy something else to replace it.

Arlo Q camers 5/10/2020 3:30:23 AM

Pros: First pro no battery's . There are 2 Q cameras one being the Q that only uses wifi and the Q+ that uses power over ethernet . Both also use the Arlo base station . With the base station there is a option for Attached storage via usb . Standard 5 camera free cloud access with the app on IOS or Android . You're account can also be accessed from your web page with Arlo on pc or Mac . This cam uses the same base station early generation Arlo's used And as far as I know the base station still works with any arlo camera . I have 4 pro and 1 Q camera with the base at home using Ios and android acess .

Cons: There is a lag depending on your internet and wifi . Keek in mind these are not expensive real high end cameras . I believe for the price they are a good buy .

Overall Review: These are a good camera for home user I would not recommend them for security in large business or buildings . My experience with Arlo has been good . We are able to look in at home when away on vacation . I would suggest using a smart outlet you so you can power cycle the base station if needed when you are not home to reset the base if needed . My Arlo cams are all inside and the Pro cams are constantly powered by the charger . I use a camera from a different manufacturer designed strictly for outdoors that uses power over ethernet .

Worse Product Out there 8/7/2017 7:53:32 AM

Pros: If you get it to work it has a nice picture

Cons: I bought the Netgear Arlo Q thinking this was a good deal for a 1080p HD Wi-Fi Security Camera with 2-way Audio! I was Wrong! Let me list what went wrong with this unit within 2 months!
1. I have two wireless networks and this unit was a pain to setup on either one but all my other wireless equipment works great on either one!
2. After one month, I noticed that half of LEDs in the front were only lighting up for Inferred.
3. The Arlo Web page would not let me view the camera in real time but would detect motion and record it so I could view it in the library!
4. After trying a factory reset and messing with it for HOURS it finally would not be seen at all in the Arlo Web page! I saw other people had the same error That I was having, I would get all the way to the point that it chimed for the setup and it would never stop the blue blinking and then time out!
5. Half the time the inferred didn’t work.
6. The unit gets very HOT in light intensified mode and the picture would blank out!

Overall Review: If you are looking for something that will cause you nothing but aggravation and pulling your hair out then this is the unit for you!

plagued by server lag. avoid. 6/4/2017 9:59:13 AM

Pros: good picture, decent audio and controls if you can live with lag.

Cons: - live view is NOT LIVE. There is a delay from camera to Arlo servers and from servers to your streaming device. Of the cloud cameras, the arlo has the worst lag. To even make this useable I had to downsize the picture to 720p and I still get a 5 second lag.

Overall Review: netgear had a great product, but crippled by poor server load and inability to bypass server for in network streaming. avoid.

Pros: Arlo Q is the usb power cam no battries great 1080 P res with 2 way sound and it can also do non stop recording if needed noted it is WIFY no ethernet cable .

Easy to set up, works great! 4/11/2017 9:16:05 AM

Pros: - easy to set up
- great picture
- sound is pretty good

Cons: -app could use some work, wish it was more like the NEST Dropcam app.
-the scheduling doesn't seem to work, it takes several steps to disable/turn off the camera and even when it's off the LED light is still on.

Overall Review: This is a great camera, comparisons are horrible but if you want to know about a product you want to know how it stacks up to the competition. I bought the NEST Dropcam first, which I think is the best camera by far(quality of pic, motion detection, great app but unless you pay for service(starts at $10 a month) then you just end with a camera and one motion detection a day or so. The Arlo Q has a very comparable pic quality, the specs are very similar and it offers free cloud service for 7 days, The motion detection is great(the NEST Dropcam has great motion detection if you pay for the service, the free option is not enough).
I use this to check on my puppy, I have bought the NEST, Arlo Q and an Armcrest and out of the three the Arlo Q is the better deal, the 7 day free cloud service and motion detection tips the balance toward the Arlo. I already ordered the second Arlo Q and have a Arlo Pro for the outside(but that another review).

Not a Security Camera 7/4/2016 5:46:24 PM

Pros: Simple Setup
Clear Video
2-Way Mic
Easy App

Cons: Requires an internet connection. You can't store your recordings locally and you NEED an internet connection to log into their site to view the video feed. That is a pretty lousy 'security' camera if you ask me.

Item is overpriced, and then they ask you (2) times during setup to pay for subscriptions to store X amount of data or have the ability for 24/7 CVR (constant video recording). If you want to add more cameras, the subscription fee could apply PER camera. Then you find out by reading the agreement that they 'may share' (and likely sell) whatever information they extract from your videos recordings, that is stored on their servers, with 'third parties' and you think...why is the camera so expensive if they're going to charge me quite a lot monthly and then sell my information?

Your Wi-Fi password is required for the camera to work and that information is stored for the camera to function. If their information/security is compromised then your home network could be as well.

Sound/Motion detection are WAY, WAY too sensitive by default; lower the settings immediately. I suppose this could be a pro/con situation, but the push notifications to my phone got really annoying, really fast. The wind would blow outside the window of our bedroom, and the shadows of the tree moving in the room would cause the camera to pickup motion.

2-way audio has a pretty bad delay, making the the 2-way mic pretty useless.

Overall Review: The price for the camera MIGHT be justifiable if you could store your video recordings locally. Until then this is a poor excuse for a security camera. The only thing it is securing, is profits for Netgear if you pay for their monthly/yearly services.

Often loses connection after firmware update 6/16/2016 6:44:18 PM

Pros: Easy setup, working great right off the box

Cons: Worked well and stable when I first set it up but forced me to update firmware to 1.8.0_5551 once I logged into the web application. After that the camera started losing connection every 1-2 min of live stream making it completely unreliable.
