The Arlo Pro 3 floodlight camera is the first 100% wire-free floodlight, giving you greater installation options, choosing where has the best view instead of where has access to a mains supply.
This powerful floodlight can illuminate the vulnerable parts of your property when motion is detected to deter intruders as well as provide a well-lit image for the camera. The light is more powerful than a car headlight providing up to 3000 lumens, it comes with an XL rechargeable battery that can last up to six months depending on how much the light is triggered, additional batteries can be bought separately. If relying on a battery that you have to remember to charge doesn’t fill you with confidence you can invest in the Solar Panel charger or Outdoor Charging cable. Set up is wonderfully simply, there is no hub or lengthy installation process, mount it in your chosen location, then download the app and connect to the camera. Just like so many security systems this one comes with options for subscription, unlike many security systems however it is reasonably priced with offers of $2.99 a month for one camera and $9.99 a month for up to five cameras.
The Smart plan will give you access to 2K Cloud Recording, 30-Day Cloud Storage, Advanced Object Detection for detecting people, vehicles, and more with Package Detection to see when your orders arrive at your door. Create Activity Zones to monitor specific areas on your property and set Intelligent Alerts that allow you to take action quickly when you are away from home and personalise the notifications to keep you informed of events that matter to you. The Pro 3 floodlight comes with a 3-month free trial included so you can decide whether you need the added extras or just run it on the basic free set up. The camera delivers clear and bright 2K video with colour night vision, a built-in Smart Siren can be triggered remotely, the lens provides a 160° viewing angel and can zoom in on objects whilst maintaining the clarity.
The two-way audio allows you to hear and speak to people on your property whether you are in the bath or miles away, the brightness, video, and audio settings can all be personalised via the app. This floodlight camera is a great choice for keeping an eye on those more remote or darker areas of your property, the robust unit can easily withstand the ever-changing weather and all those premium features make this camera excellent value for money.
