Reviews
Arlo Essential Wire-Free Spotlight Camera is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 55.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Satisfied - but only just we purchased the Arlo products as they had great reviews, but I have to say friends have a different brand and appear to have a far better outcome. The night vision option doesn't actually provide any better view than the normal vision option once the sun goes down. There is a lag (1-2 minutes) whereas other products seem to operate in realtime. The setup functions for motion detection doesn't seem to work effectively. We receive constant notifications for movement (vehicle street traffic) which is outside the range of the configured range, but sketchy results with people and vehicle movements within the target area.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product but no storage without an Arlo hub. This is a great value camera if you already have an Arlo hub. Without the hub you can only view events happening in real-time and not able to back up incidents unless you pay for an Arlo storage plan. I have an Arlo hub so it isn't an issue for me. Battery life so far is great and looks like it will last the advertised 6 months between charging and maybe even more. I added this camera for our front door as it has a built-in spotlight which works well. The Arlo app is fine but I choose to use the Apple Home app which is great for what we need.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use Setup is easy enough but thought it came with magnetic stands, must be the more expensive ones (like these aren't expensive enough), but overall good quality. I can ask my android tv or Google nest hub to show me each camera and it works well. Just had to setup a mesh network to get the best wifi signal coverage. The are really good, I might use another one for the front door instead of the video doorbell that really doesn't know how to function!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Quite disappointing I bought this about a month ago but had problems connecting to my internet. This was due to a problem with my internet, however I found contacting customer support very difficult. In the finish it took me a couple of weeks to get the cameras functioning and installed. After being up for only 3 days I got a notification telling me the battery was low, despite them being fully charged before attempting to set them up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Arlo does the job Very basic but does the job. Good value for money.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Meh!! Delay in footage due to connection to the Arlo server. Battery only last 3 weeks on best video quality mode and spotlight brightness at 100%. They don't tell you that in the ads Easy to connect the camera to the mount. Easy install / connection Check your WIFI range prior to buying or you'll most likely need a stronger router. Activity zones appear pointless. Camera's pickup every that moves outside of these zones regardless :/ Super annoying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Won't connect after re-charging. Charge lasted a few weeks, then wouldn't connect again after that. Thought it was great before that, but useless now. If it worked, then at around $200 each, OK value, functions well. Unfortunately, I now have 2 that don't work after first use! Googling shows this reconnection problem as a common issue, so not exactly a 'DIY' security system for me. They seem very easy to steal too.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Battery low Smart product but not great for general areas such as front doors etc. you can only get the camera to be a camera on times you set or by geofencing so there on when your away from them. But geofencing is clunky and doesn’t always work, so either way you get hundreds of videos of yourself walking around. Because of this you have to charge the battery’s every month.

Hi. Does the Arlo essential record locally in a personal storage device or do i always need a subscription? Does it work if i buy a hub?

Asked by: Joel
Hi there. Thanks for your question. To store locally, apart of the subscription, it will be needed to get the camera connected to a base station, from there you can use USB sticks or SD cards for storing footage.

Is there a extra cost through the internet to run the camera

Asked by: Philly
Hi Philly. Thanks for your question. Using this device should not increase your Internet bill but, in any case, it will depend on the type of product you have hire with your Internet provider. If you have broadband or any other fixed standard product it would not alter the consumption, however, if using data it will likely increase the consumption.

Does this camera send to a tablet? What Distance will it send pictures to?

Asked by: Gramps
Hi Barry, thanks for a great questions! You can receive notifications and access video footage anywhere, so long as your selected device has the Arlo App installed and an active wifi or data connection. You can place the Arlo camera a maximum of 300 feet (90 meters) from the SmartHub or base station. The maximum line-of-sight range of 300 feet is reduced by each wall, ceiling, or other major obstruction between the camera and base station. Hope this helps.

Do you need wifi in your house to operate these cameras

Asked by: Rich
Hi Rich, thanks for your question. Most Arlo cameras do require an active internet connection within camera range, as their cameras and systems are designed as an online, cloud based system. However, the Arlo Go system features local back-up and storage, and accepts SD card input, should internet connection drop. Hope this helps.
