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.
Arlo Essential Spotlight Camera is a wire-free mid-range IP camera from Arlo. Arlo is well-known for its wire-free cameras.
TP-Link Tapo C200 is a pan/tilt home security wi-fi camera that retails for S$75. It comes with three years local warranty, probably the only wi-fi camera in the market that comes with a three-year warranty.
Tapo is TP-Link’s sub-brand for its smart home devices.
Aztech WIPC309HD Full HD Wireless IP Camera is launched in Singapore back in March 2018 at a recommended retail price (RRP) of S$69.
Aztech WIPC309HD is marketed as a budget wireless IP camera without any panâtiltâzoom (PTZ) functionality.
The usual retail price was US$299 (S$395), but during the sale, it went down to US$219 (S$289).
I guess most people have not heard of the brand Freecam before. If you tried Googling for the word “freecam”, you would chance upon a lot of NSFW links. I wished they have a better name.
The unique selling point of this camera is Apple HomeKit integration. Apple HomeKit is Apple’s proprietary answer to its Smart Home solution.
Beseye is a Taiwanese company that does home cameras and cloud services.
Its first product is Beseye Pro. Beseye Pro is a wi-fi monitoring camera that has won the reddot award 2015 because of its smooth design and clever magnetic mounting.
It was shipped to backers in May 2015.
