Great features!

Yes, I'd recommend this product.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This camera was easy to set up and install and the app is also very user friendly. I appreciate the spotlight feature and also the picture and video quality is very clear, even at night. I have peace of mind with this camera.

Yes, I'd recommend this product.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This was pretty easy to set up. It only took me a little longer than I thought, because I had to buy a new drill. But once I was able to set it all up, it worked great. My husband feels safer now being able to see people coming up to our house, it gives us a nice sense of security knowing what's going on outside, while we are inside or not even home.

Good image quality

Yes, I'd recommend this product.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Arlo Essential security camera was easy to install and the camera does not require a hub either. The video quality is superb (1080p) The one feature I feel stands out with this camera is the siren feature that is activated if motion is detected but you can adjust the settings to be alerted and then you can manually sound the alarm because no one in your neighborhood wants to hear loud alarms in the middle of the night when the raccoons are looking for dinner in your trash bins. Installation was rather easy and the set up in the app has all the prompts and images to help you along the way. The camera works well with Alexa but for Google users works with Google Assistant as well. The two-way talk feature is nice not sure I will use this feature as much other than to warn raccoons to stay out of the trash. Fortunately I have not had to sound the alarm but it is nice to know that the option is available as I feel most would think twice if they heard an alarm go off when they were walking up to your house. The Arlo Essential Camera is a welcome addition to our home as I work nights and my wife and kids feel safer knowing that I can monitor our home when they are sleeping and it is a good deterrent for any late night unwanted visitors.

Great garden cam!

Yes, I'd recommend this product.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I used this camera to see what was getting into the garden and eating my plants at night. And man it worked great! I was able to catch the thieves in action. Now I have it mounted by my door and it's working great for seeing when things are delivered or to see who is knocking. For both applications the notifications have worked well. Picture is clear and the battery has been lasting a long time. All and all a great camera.

Great Features!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I had a little trouble getting this camera set up but after an online chat with Customer Support it was up and running in no time. This camera has some great features, such as the spotlight, the siren that you can trigger to run someone off, and it's wireless so no cords to deal with. The camera quality is also great both night and day. I love being able to pull up the app and check on things at my home any time while I'm away.

Love this camera!

Yes, I'd recommend this product.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This Spotlight camera works so perfect at my house. Its wireless which made it super simple to set up and get working. All you have to do is plug in the battery to the camera, download the app, make an account and connect it to your wifi. The battery is removable and charges using a plug. The battery doesn't stay charged for as long as it says it will but its not a problem to take down and charge the battery for a few hours. The quality pictures are very clear. Love this camera!
