Arlo Security Cams
Review date: 11/02/2020
Arlo security cameras include the standard indoor and outdoor models with HD video, two-way talk, and motion detection. They also sell a video camera that works over cellular data designed to be taken anywhere for mobile surveillance. That sounds kinda creepy. Arlo also makes a cute little rabbit-shaped baby camera with advanced night vision, a multi-colored nightlight, and air sensors and bills it as a "super nanny." All in all, Arlo's security cams allow for a whole lot of watching, which is what they are designed to do. We like that they have a "Privacy Pledge" on their website where they commit to keeping all this video you capture safe, secure, and private.
