Arlo introduces new Arlo Pro 4 spotlight camera, connects directly to Wi-Fi

By

Promising "even easier DIY setup", Arlo's newest camera requires no special base station, offers 2K HDR video quality and a 160-degree field of view.

Arlo arguably makes the very best wireless security camera systems on the planet, with a wide range of models at different price points, for external and internal uses, with spotlights, floodlights, doorbell cameras, even 4G LTE models and more.

The newest addition to its award-winning Pro series of security cameras is the Arlo Pro 4 Wire-Free Spotlight Camera.

It features "advanced technologies including 2K HDR video quality, an integrated spotlight with colour night vision and a 160-degree field of view to deliver clear video quality day and night."

Unlike its predecessor, the Pro 4 connects directly to Wi-Fi, "enabling an even easier DIY setup as a standalone security solution or compliment to an existing Arlo ecosystem."

The price starts at AUD $369 for a Pro 4 single cam, $699 for a two-camera kit and $1,299 for a four-camera kit, with the new range to roll out "at leading electrical retailers nationally in March 2021."

Brad Little, Vice President & Managing Director Arlo APAC said: "Our industry-leading products are designed to deliver peace of mind without compromise. The new Pro 4 features improved connectivity allowing for direct to Wi-Fi installation without the need of a Base Station or SmartHub while existing Arlo users still have the opportunity to add the new cameras to their current system.

“With Pro 4 we want to offer consumers the option to choose the installation method most suitable for their needs. Couple this feature with customised Arlo Smart notifications via the Arlo app and we enable users to confidently monitor and manage their security.”

Arlo’s reminds us that its "AI subscription-based service, Arlo Smart, compliments the Pro 4 Wire-Free Spotlight Cameras to deliver total protection.

"Users receive a complimentary three-month Arlo Smart trial included with their purchase. Arlo Smart provides extended 30-day rolling cloud storage of 2K HD video recording, for added peace of mind. Smarter, customisable notifications enable Arlo Smart users to detect people, vehicles, animals or packages."

It's controlled entirely through the Arlo app, letting you easily view live streams and recordings, adjust their camera settings or access cloud recordings.

  • 2K Video with HDR: See a crystal-clear picture in every detail through Arlo Pro 4’s high-performance lenses
