More than ever, home builders are looking to integrate smart home technologies as an added value and differentiation within the market,” said Tom Babula, SVP worldwide sales at Arlo. “This strategic partnership with Kartchner Homes will provide homeowners with the industry’s most intuitive front entry monitoring solutions.

“Kartchner Homes seeks to offer convenience and value to our customers, so when selecting smart features for our homes, the Arlo Video Doorbell was an obvious choice,” said Evan DeLong, Kartchner Homes Smart Home Specialist. “With one of the most competitive price points, Arlo has packed their video doorbell with all the same features as their pricier competitors, plus some. We love its notification features and slim form. We are excited to introduce this amenity to all of our customers moving forward.”
The future residents of Kartchner Homes with built-in Arlo Video Doorbells will enjoy smart notifications to detect front entry activity, along with two-way audio allowing them to speak with visitors without having to answer the door.
