Hello Hello! You guys will not even believe how busy I have been lately. Your first thought might be I must be working on our house but have no time to share about it here. Nope! I actually haven’t done much of anything in our house because it feels like I’m never home anymore. I spent this Summer enjoying everything this beautiful state of Colorado has to offer and I haven’t regretted one second of it. Kayaking, visiting new places, continuing to work outside on our property to clean it up. Summer came to a close and as September started, I began a remodel and new build for my husband’s new office. It has been a lot of work and a ton of time away from our house. Sometimes what I’d like to be doing is reading a book right here in this spot…
With so much time away from home, this HOMEBODY started to worry a little bit about security. We get packages delivered a few times a week thanks to mostly Amazon subscriptions, someone’s book habit (ahem…) and a teenager who orders random things almost weekly. Speaking of teenagers, I also like to know when my kiddos get home from school and when they come in for their curfew…sometimes I just don’t want to get out of bed to make sure they are coming in on time. Lazy? Maybe. But thankfully I found a product that will help with ALL of these security concerns and more! Now I can keep an eye on my home day and night with Arlo Pro 3 security cameras.
How Arlo Pro 3 Works
These security cameras are an easy DIY install, indoor or outdoor. I chose to put mine up outside my front and back door. These security cameras are so well thought out and impressive, we are considering adding them to the other 2 entrances to our home. The system is completely wireless (YAY!), easy to install, protects you and allows you to stay connected to who and what you love. You will shine like a pro using the Arlo App for iOS and Android, view video directly from your mobile device/phone , spots unique details with 2K HDR and color night vision so that you can see more in dark areas in and around your home with the integrated spotlight. The advanced lens has a wider 160-degree field of view and lets you track & zoom in on moving objects clearly. You can also receive notifications when your camera spots people, vehicles, animals or packages, and view live video or recorded clips directly from your phone! Purchasing the product, which you can get at Best Buy or Arlo.com, in white or black, also includes a 3-month trial subscription Arlo Smart plan.
Features of The Cameras
I’m not technically challenged but I do like things to be simple and easy. Other cameras and security systems have seemed complicated and time-consuming to learn and install. I’m so pleased to have found America’s #1 internet-connected camera brand, Arlo Pro 3 which is simple, easy to use and reliable for keeping an eye on things around my home. We live in a great neighborhood in a safe place, but this adds a level of comfort and peace of mind that literally helps me sleep better at night, especially now that Fall is in full swing and it gets dark quite a bit earlier. I just can’t believe the simplicity of these cameras in conjunction with how many cool features there are. Because they are 2K HDR, you can zoom in and see clearer details and in COLOR, even in the dark. There is a spotlight integrated on the camera AND a siren that can be set to automatically trigger OR you can trigger remotely from your phone if you are notified of people, vehicles, animals or a package is delivered with Arlo Smart. 3 months of Arlo Smart service is included in your purchase. My favorite feature though, I think is the 2-way audio, yes you can hear and speak to visitors. Also, mess with your teenagers because why not? LOL! And you even get an alert when the camera detects a package, how cool is that?!?!
I mentioned the cameras are completely wireless, which means no cords. They come with rechargeable batteries that have an extra-long life and charge quickly so you aren’t feeling vulnerable while your batteries are removed. to setup all you do is connect a power cord and ethernet cord to the included SmartHub, then connect those to your wi-fi router. Then download the Arlo app and it will prompt you through the rest of the set-up, this took me a total of 7 minutes, and that included downloading the actual app, inserting batteries in my installed cameras, and naming both cameras.
Both Amazon Alexa and Google Assistance compatible, we are seriously loving these cameras. You can purchase them in-store or online at Best Buy or Arlo.com, they have rave reviews and I completely agree with all of them. Do you have a security system/cameras anywhere in or outside your home? These have been really fun to play with and I do feel more safe having eyes and both the front door and back door when I’m not home or when we’re sleeping at night.
