Arlo Unleashes Arlo Pro 3 Camera

Arlo has unleashed it’s latest indoor/ outdoor camera, the Arlo Pro 3. Unlike it’s predecessor the Arlo Pro 2, the 3 features:

  • 2K HDR video as opposed to 1080p HD
  • Infrared as well as color night vision through a motion-activated spotlight
  • Built-in siren.

The camera is weather-resistant and works with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and Apple Watch, according to a press release from Arlo. It is currently available for $199 at Best Buy. Naveeen Chhangani, Vice President of Product Management at Arlo, said in the press release,

“As our new Pro Series flagship product, Pro 3 is packed with the latest innovations that give DIY users the ability to monitor their home or business with more clarity and details, along with all of the convenience of Arlo’s award-winning wire-free design.”

The Arlo Pro 3 comes with three months of Arlo Smart, which includes smart detection for people, animals, vehicles and packages, along with a safety button and 30 days of cloud storage.

Initial Troubles With Arlo Ultra Release

Last February, Arlo pulled the Arlo Ultra 4K camera from shelves along with Amazon and Best Buy, before releasing it again in early April. In it’s initial release, the camera had performance issues and was found to only be capable of shooting in 1080p HD as opposed to 4K. After four firmware updates surrounding timeout issues, charge voltage, video corruption, and audio and image quality improvements, the cameras were released again.

In the second release, Arlo maintained that the camera had 4K video, HDR, plus two-way audio, according to their Senior Vice President of Products Pat Collins. Both the Arlo Ultra 4K camera and the Arlo Pro 3 require the Arlo SmartHub and can be used indoors and outdoors via a magnetic mount. However, the Ultra came with a year of Arlo Smart Premier, as opposed to three months of Arlo Smart with the Arlo Pro 3. It remains to be seen how the Arlo Pro 3 will do in comparison to the Arlo Pro 2 and the Arlo Ultra 4K, which did not satisfy customer expectations initially.
