- Live view was 30-60 seconds behind and a laggy messby Chris
from Vancouver, BC on November 26, 2018
I researched WiFi home security camera systems for quite a long time before finally deciding to take the plunge on the Arlo Pro 2 system - one of the top rated systems on the market according to mainstream tech reviews. The hardware is super nice, well built, high quality devices that look good, and setup/installation was a breeze - it took me about 15mins from opening the box to having them up and running on the latest firmware. I was initially over the moon with these, as the motion detection and alerts were great, and most importantly, the recorded video footage was really good and super smooth. Switching over to live view was when my experience with this system took a turn for the worse. To begin with, all 3 of my cameras had full WiFi signal, and were all working on the latest firmware as of November 2018. Live view was an absolute mess - it's 30-60 seconds behind, and even then the footage you're watching is stuttering. Don't even bother with the 2 way audio with this, because by the time you see someone on the camera they had already left a minute earlier, plus the sound is crackly and broken. I played around with this for 4 hours trying to get live view working nicely, and nothing worked, which is a damn shame. I reset everything back to factory settings, restarted the base station, turned off the cameras and back on again, put them right next to my router etc and it was always laggy and behind on the live feeds. I was massively disappointed with this as I love the look and feel of the product, and the actual motion sensing and automatic recording looks and plays great with zero issues. With that being said, the live recording feature is 50% of the product and something I would use often, so I had to return them and look for something else that is battery operated, has a great picture, and the full feature set works reliably every time. The search continues :(
- Don't buy. Terrible life in weather colder that -1by SamLynsey
from Kelowna, BC on November 17, 2018
We purchased this product for our home in Kelowna. The weather is very mild and we travel often and wanted a reasonable system to keep an eye on the place if we were away for a few weeks at a time. The batteries were drained before we hit the 3 week mark (set to lowest video quality and reduced motion). We purchased solar panels and power cords to resolve this issue. It wasn't until the temperature dropped below 0 that we realized the power cords and solar panels will not charge the battery. So we must be within access of cameras all winter to pull them down and re-charge the batteries. Really defeats the purpose of having something reliable while we are away - also, can't wait to climb a ladder in the middle of a snow storm to access my batteries to re-charge. We have returned them and will be looking at other options.

I bought these cameras but will not recommend them. They are often off line. Instructions to get back on are not clear. Battery expense is high. Also if a camera is not working, you have to pay the shipping to have it repaired.
- Doesn't live up to expectationsby Paul
from Mississauga, ON on September 3, 2018
I positioned my cameras around the house pointed towards doors and towards gates. All were outside. Installation was easy but the set-up took some tweeking to removed moving branches that were setting off the motion recording. After 3 weeks I am returning. I had to charge the batterys after about 10 days, but I chalked that up to the false recording I had becuase of branches,and aiming the camera, etc. I ended up having the cameras "armed" only between 9 in the evenign and 6 in the morning. Aside from a few racoon sightings, there was nothing that made the camera film and record. Most nights were uneventful. After another 10 days the batteries are down to 50% again. This means that I'll be taking down the cameras and charging them about every 3 weeks, and this with nothign really to records. That will get boring very quickly. If I armed the cameras every time I left the house and then at night, the batteries wouldn't last 2 weeks. I need a wired solution. Oh the other thing I should mention is that netgear is very good at limiting themselves as the only option for accessories. The charger for example has to be theirs, otherwise you get an error message. Which means if you want to plug in your camera and leave it charging all the time you need their proprietary charger, and nothing else. Solar charging? Doesn't' work below zero degrees apparently. Actually neither does it if you have the camera plugged in. Might be ok if you're in florida, but not where there is a winter and definitely not in Canada where snow flied for 6 months of the year.
- Easy setup from box to outdoor installby Andrew
from Pierrefonds, QC on August 14, 2018
I bought this item, even though some reviews were not so good. My experience so far after 1 week has been pretty positive. The quick guide was pretty staright forward. I added the cameras 1 by 1, and all went well. I noticed that it was easier to add cameras manually by touching the base sation and then the cameras, rather than using the software app. All is good so far, I will dig deeper into the settings and see how things go. :)
- Rechargeable batteries in Arlo Pro cameras are problematicby MattB
from Squamish BC on August 3, 2018
Bought the 4 camera Arlo Pro system from Best Buy in January 2018. Batteries initially lasted about 3 months. Then in June they died in 2-3 days. After many complaints to Arlo from owners, they issued a new firmware update that solved the problem somewhat - our batteries now last a month on average, which still sucks. Arlo have acknowledged there is a problem and say they are working on it but no fix yet.So far, their customer service has been pretty much non-existent.
- Very bad system. Do not buy. Its not worth the hefty price tag!by Grant D
from Windsor, ON on July 17, 2018
This is a horrible system. The app itself is very unreliable and not very well designed/user freindly. If used in a busy area, the camera battery will have to be changed very frequently making the wireless part of this system very inconvenient. The lag time is quite bad, so what you are seeing on the app is behind quite a bit. Also, I have only had the system running for less then two weeks and one camera has already stopped working/communicating with the system. For what this system costs, do not buy it!
- Not happy with the Arlo Proby Bozaster

Very poor app. Huge lag. By the time you get notification thief has come and gone. Detection range only 20 feet. That’s not good when mounted on second floor.
- Finicky!!!!!by Not a Happy Camper
from Lethbridge, AB on July 14, 2018
I bought Arlo Pro 2 because it was wireless and showed flexibility in how the cameras could be positioned for excellent detection... NOT happy at all with how FINICKY that actually is!!! Unless the camera’s very outer edge is able to be triggered, no recording begins until the disturbance leaves (the other) line of sight. This doesn’t help if you’re trying to be discreet with where the camera is placed, or if someone happens to be approaching directly towards the unit. For the range the camera shows, it should have the ability of detecting everything within that spectrum... otherwise, why show it?? Also, if motion is still happening, why stop recording after 15 - 17 seconds... if it’s still in front of the camera?? Overall, I’m not too impressed.
- System Unreliableby Matt Blackman
from Squamish, BC on June 9, 2018
We bought our Arlo Pro system with 4 cameras and the base station in January 2018. Batteries typically lasted 3 months with setting them to Armed mode in the evening and back to Disarmed in the morning. Then suddenly batteries on all four cameras lasted 60-72 hours before going dead. We tried everything recommended in the manual to increase battery life but to no avail. Getting hold of Arlo customer service has been a nightmare. Will update this if they honour the 1 year warranty and replace the system.
