Description: The following article is designed to show us the review about Arlo Pro, the author mainly tends to tell us some information about the positive and negative aspects of using it.
I’m going to do a try to make it a quick review of the our low pro camera system, I am going to show my opinion about the good and bad, I don’t like whatever the case may be starting off, this is 100% Wireless.
There are no wires attached to this camera, it runs off a battery that is inside of here and it is rechargeable, so this is our low pro, the other ones are a little different without Modelo Pro here, this is a rechargeable battery, they say about 6 months, I’m going to tell you it depends on where you put the camera, depends on how much battery life you’re going to get these to do at work.
When Steve motion, it’s going to start recording, you can go in and change the settings to where it records all the time, I get about a month out of this, the other ones I get two and a half months. I’ve had a system for about three and a half months now , two cameras I have to charge there, they’re still on charge and I think they’re making my laptop over here, I think they’re on sixty percent.
After three and a half months, drive about sixty percent, they pick up about ten to fifteen recording a day, so they’re doing great, but this camera again probably picks up about five hundred recordings a day, so it definitely gets some activity, so the battery life is significantly reduced now.
As far as what are some good things about this system, obviously, the wireless cannot, it took me 10 minutes to set this up, you create an account online, you push this think button, put the camera next to the little base station, push the sync button for a few seconds, let it do its thing.
It’s good to go, you mount it wherever you want, it picks up things, you wouldn’t believe, it’s going to pick up in the sound, you can have two-way conversations with this, through the app, you can talk to whoever is in front of the camera.
You want to talk to your dog if this is in the baggage room or something like that, you can have conversations back and forth and it does pick it up, this is a magnetic thing, you stick around our show for this metal here.
I’ll show you how you know CH which is magnetic, so very strong magnet, however, if you’re putting these outside, I would not recommend using the magnetic one, because I’m going to easily walk up and snag it off the wall, so you don’t want to get stolen.
I did purchase four of the wall mounts, basically the big screw on to the wall and then these attach to the mount and the other screws on and then this screws into the image, that strong camera made me this, that’s how you attach it, as you tighten this down, it tightens down the position of whatever the camera is.
However, the camera is how it’s going to stay one thing as far as echoes, I would suggest for them to add, it is a disconnection feature, if it disconnects off, the siren goes off or something, so the intruder or the thief know that they’ve been warned you’re stealing property and you are also being warned that your camera has been disconnected, so that would be a great feature for them to add.
This is a fantastic system, the clarity of the picture is very good until you zoom, once you start to zoom, it gets grainy and fuzzy, but as far as everything else goes very clear, so pixel clarity is great, the battery life is great until it gets into those specific areas where there are high traffic.
What are the downsides? It would be motion activated, it is bad because they don’t allow you to cancel out, any areas where a lot of systems, you can go in and gray out or mark out spots and you don’t want motion detection picked up.
This camera faces a corner, I would love to gray out that intersection, not even see it, because I get five hundred plus a day sometimes up to a thousand a date and how much traffic is going on? If it’s a windy day and there’s a bush in front of here and the bush is blowing, sometimes, it’ll pick up three or four times a minute and it will record for ten seconds and you can change that ten seconds where there’s five ten 15 20.
It will record for ten seconds of this voice, blowing around, so they have to go through and delete all those video snaps of a voice blown around, it gets annoying, so I’d love to go in there and gray out areas, they give you an option where you can reduce the window of what is being seen.
I don’t like that, because it doesn’t allow your areas to be an angle like this, so you can’t bring this side in and bring the top down a little bit,you bring it like this, so you get one specific shape and you’re stuck with that and I don’t like that, because I don’t want a rectangular shape like this, so I can gray out the corner.
I’m missing all this over here, this is the battery slot, you charge it into the wall, it does use a standard micro USB cable, however, I have yet to find another cable that will plug into this camera, because outer tasting is too big or too small, I’m sorry it’s too small and it doesn’t allow all these standard micro USB cables to slide in and far enough to where it’ll start charging, so if you happen to break or lose the arlo camera charger, you’re stuck buying the little charging cable.
Because that’s bumping that I can find that works. I’m sure they’re out there, if you want to watch your dog during the day or something you have in the kids room, you want to watch the kids, you push the live button again, the siren is down, you turn the siren on and off.
You can change the spacing of exchange recording time about a 300 foot range of what they will pick up, because they’re wireless, so it’s got to have a range, I have no problem, wherever I want it to do, it picks up well through the wireless system, it’s a fantastic system, it is easy to set up great picture clarity, great audio clarity.
It’s a great system paying probably eight hundred and fifty dollars for the pro system and it’s worth every penny, biddin wanted to come out and and charge me 80 bucks a month for what I wanted, they wanted a contract, I didn’t want the contract, I didn’t want to pay for three years in ten months of what they wanted to charge.
I bought my own system, had it installed in hour and a half including all the mounting basis things secured up and running recording good to go, so nine and a half out of ten would raise it a little bit for a couple of tweaks here and there, but otherwise, I’m not going to complain about the system.
I want to say it is frequent when I plug these into charge them, there’s a software firmware update, so I’m sure they’re changing things and they will change things, as time goes along, that’s what people do, that’s what companies do to make things better.
The other thing is that you can’t see it here, but there are hard water spots on the actual lens, so if you have hard water and you use a sprinkler system, they tend to get on the lens and are hard to get off, so you might want to take the camera down for 15-20 minutes, whatever your camera or your sprinkler system runs.
The other thing is night vision on these absolutely fantastic, it’s great night vision, very clear picture at the night vision is very clear, the reflection of the light comes off the lamp post onto my license plates, makes it hard to see, the letters and numbers on license plate, so it’s useless.
If they have to pick up a license plate number because of the reflective material on the license plate, so as long as there’s no light in the area shining down onto it, it’ll pick it up, but this does work, the motion detection works.
If I can find some kind of night vision video here, I can show you real good of how clear it is, because it is very clear and it is least worth trying to show you if I can find one, give me just one second here.
I apologize it’s going to be on the 1 and I’m holding, because that’s the one, that gets the most traffic, so let me see if this one is at 551 in the morning, I don’t know why they can see, it is definitely a great picture, I don’t know why it bounces like that back and forth, it only does that on the actual website, it doesn’t do it on the camera app, so you can see that with a moth flying by the light in the middle of the night.
