Each of the Arlo Essential Series wire-free cameras feature an integrated battery and are designed for quick and easy installation or placement nearly anywhere – inside or out, rain or shine. A direct to a WiFi connection enables the Arlo Essential Series wire-free cameras to function as a stand-alone home security solution without the need for a separate SmartHub or Base Station. Users with an existing Arlo security system can however, link their Arlo Essential Series cameras to a compatible Arlo SmartHub (VMB4540, VMB5000) or Base Station (VMB4000, VMB4500) to enable local storage recording and enhance camera range and battery life.
The purchase of an Arlo Essential Series wire-free camera unlocks a complimentary three-month trial to Arlo’s AI subscription-based service, Arlo Smart. Users will receive access to 30-days of rolling 1080p video recordings to store and view video clips. Notification settings can be adjusted, enabling Arlo Smart subscribers to fully customize their experience to spot people, vehicles, animals or packages2. Arlo Smart’s e911 feature provides access to emergency services local to the camera’s location for quick action in emergency situations3. Controlled entirely through the Arlo app, users can easily view live streams and recordings, adjust their camera settings or access cloud recordings.
