There are four main lines of security cameras from Arlo. Arlo Ulta, Arlo Pro, Arlo Essential, and Arlo Go. Arlo Ulta supports 4K HDR video recording, while Arlo Pro supports 2K HDR video recording. Arlo Essential supports 1080p video recording, while Arlo Go supports 720p recording as it is meant to be used with a 4G plan.
Arlo launched their Arlo Essential Indoor Camera last month and it is currently retailing for S$199. Essentially (pun intended), this camera is the indoor version of the Arlo Essential Spotlight Camera that I reviewed last October.
The major difference is Essential Indoor is wired, and Essential Spotlight is wireless. Essential Indoor doesn’t have a spotlight, and its night vision is black and white only.
I decided to place my Arlo Essential Spotlight Camera in the kitchen since I already have a Nest Cam watching the outside corridor and my living room.
I bought an OEM Gutter Mount for Arlo Cameras from Shopee for S$12.09 with an additional S$1 for shipping to Singapore.
Arlo Essential Spotlight Camera is a wire-free mid-range IP camera from Arlo. Arlo is well-known for its wire-free cameras.
