Arlo is announcing the newest generation of its home security camera system called the Pro 3.
These new cameras offer a jump to 2K resolution recording quality with HDR, higher from 1080p with the Pro 2.
Every camera highlights its spotlight, too, which does precisely what you’d assume, flood the area in light.
Also, it provides colour night vision, so, in theory, you will be capable of making out colours and additional details in the dead of night.
Besides from a push up in image quality, a few extra things have changed.
The Pro 3 camera has a 160-degree field of view, a small but good development over the 130-degree field of view in the earlier iteration.
Arlo states that having conversations with people by the camera will be better now with the Pro 3.
This is due to their full-duplex microphones that support more direct back-and-forth chatter.
Additionally, these cameras will be equipped to pan and zoom in on a subject when it identifies movement.
Similar to the Pro 2, the Pro 3 is IP65 weather-resistant, and Arlo’s IoT ecosystem support yet involves Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.
The cameras are wire-free and rechargeable, serving up to six months before requiring to be powered up again.
The Launch Plan
The Arlo Pro 3 launches this week on Arlo.com and at Best Buy.
Arlo announces that these cameras will be compatible with preexisting Arlo Ultra accessories along with the earlier base stations.
Hence if you want one of these $199.99 cameras gradually, that is available.
This price is on the level with the charge of Ring’s battery-powered Spotlight Cam or the Nest Cam IQ Indoor.
Though Arlo’s system needs a base station, and the others do not.
Still, Arlo gives a higher resolution and some great features you will not gain from Ring or Nest.
The full package includes a Smart Hub and two cameras which costs $499.
That selection will include a free three-month trial to Arlo Smart which usually costs $9.99 per month.
Arlo Smart is a service that keeps a rolling record of recordings.
The examination of its Smart service has an e911 feature that permits authorities to pinpoint the area of the camera if you call for help from the Arlo app.
