Netgear home security camera
June 2018, CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring, Products

The next generation of Netgear’s popular Arlo Pro ‘wire-free’ security camera, the new Arlo Pro2, has been released. It features higher quality, 1080p HD video, a plug-in backup solar power option, and support for applications such as Amazon Alexa which facilitates remote, live monitoring from a smartphone.

According to Tobie van Schalkwyk, business development manager at Duxbury Networking, the SA Netgear distributor, the weather-resistant Arlo Pro2 is suitable for indoor or outdoor placement and is designed to deliver an innovative, flexible and easy-to-use smart security solution for homes and businesses.

“Arlo Pro2 camera records in HD video with the capability to zoom in for greater detail,” he says, emphasising the ‘pinch-to-zoom’ function that allows operators to highlight an image area to be viewed with extra clarity.

Key features of the Arlo Pro2 include a 130-degree field of view, night vision and advanced motion-detection technology. The camera also includes a built-in speaker and microphone for two-way communication, and the base station comes equipped with a siren which can be triggered remotely, by motion or audio detection.

Van Schalkwyk says the audio features allow users to listen to (as well as view) feeds from the camera and react to them using remote controls via the Arlo app on a smartphone.

“From a practical point of view, users can monitor every angle of their property, inside and outside, day and night, as well as talk to staff, delivery personnel, cleaning crews, children in the garden and even confront intruders on a property under surveillance,” he says.

One of the innovations of the Arlo Pro2 is its Look Back function, a pre-recording feature that captures images of a pre-selected ‘motion activity zone’ three seconds before the camera is motion-triggered.

“The result is a more complete picture of what has occurred,” adds Van Schalkwyk.

The Arlo Pro2 is complemented by Arlo-branded solar photovoltaic panels – sold separately – which help keep deep-cycle batteries charged as backup in the event of a power failure.

In a bid to make smart home security more intuitive and effective, the Arlo Pro2 can be connected to a range of smart home devices through platforms such as IFTTT and Samsung SmartThings.

The Netgear Arlo Pro2 is available as a single-camera-plus-base-station solution, or in bundles that include two, three and four cameras from R6299 excluding VAT.
