Have you ever had something happen that made you wish you had an at home security camera system? Maybe someone broke into your home or your garage. Or maybe even your car right in your own driveway. That’s how it happened for us.
We live in a relatively safe town. Safer than most I would imagine. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t things that go on that it helps to be proactive about. Last year someone actually broke into my husband’s truck that was parked in the driveway. It’s unnerving when something like this happens. Sure you can install an alarm system, but by the time the police arrive, the thieves may have already gotten what they came for and be long gone.
Ever since our truck was broken in to, we have tossed around the idea of getting a camera system, but they always seemed so complicated and we didn’t want to have to deal with wires for each camera.
The Netgear Arlo Smart Home at home security camera system has changed all that!
The Netgear Arlo Smart Home at home security camera system is a set of 4 motion-activated wireless cameras that you can mount around your home indoors or outdoors. This 4 camera set is available ONLY at Best Buy! The cameras capture 720p video footage any time day or night and record any detected motion. The cameras are waterproof and can be used in temperatures from 14° to 122° fahrenheit.
The cameras come with a base unit that connects to your home router. Netgear actually has a high performance router that is perfect for the Arlo camera setup. It is the Netgear Nighthawk R7300 DST Dual-Band Gigabit Router with DST Adapter. This router helps eliminate wi-fi dead zones and maximize your wi-fi coverage so you can place your Arlo Smart Home cameras even in the most remote corner of your home and still get a signal. This router is easy to setup and includes 1 year of Geek Squad® Set Up & Support to take all of the guesswork out of setting up your home wireless network.
The Netgear Arlo cameras are mounted via easy to install magnetic camera mounts. A single screw mounts the base to the surface, and a strong magnet in the camera holds in in place on the base. This makes them super easy to adjust to get just the right angle.
The Arlo Smart Home at home security camera system allows you to set schedules for when the cameras actually begin recording and you can monitor the cameras on a home computer or from your mobile device through the Arlo app. You have full control of when the cameras are activated and you can view any recorded motion on your mobile device or computer.
The Arlo Smart Home Camera systems also comes with free cloud storage for up to 7 days of recordings (1 GB max) and you can purchase additional storage as needed and an adjustable camera mount for areas where you don’t have a vertical surface to mount the camera on. You can even mount it upside-down and there is a setting in the app to flip the picture around so it is the right way when you view it.
You can also mount Arlo on a tree, or anywhere outside your home that you can attach a couple of screws to. It’s super versatile!
Viewing your camera setup is super easy within the app or on your computer. You can name each camera to that you can easily know which one is which, and you can view a live feed anytime. The cameras do not run unless you activate them either via the app (or computer) or if you have the motion-sensing activated which saves battery life on the cameras. On the cameras screen, you can see if the cameras are currently set for motion-sensing, check the wi-fi signal strength and check the battery levels.
The Netgear Arlo Smart Home at home security camera system can give you peace of mind at home or for your small business. It can help you see who is at the door, help keep tabs on kids, babysitters, elderly relatives and even pets. It is 100% wire-free is waterproof and night vision lets you capture things even in the dark. It is an ideal solution for all of your security camera needs. Paired with the Netgear Nighthawk R7300 DST Dual-Band Gigabit Router with DST Adapter you can rest assured that you will know exactly what is going on in and around your home at all times.
I just feel better knowing I can keep tabs on everything in and around my home day or night. And with Arlo, the setup and installation was easier than I ever imagined.
