Plans Will Bundle Hardware with Service at a Low Monthly Price with No Upfront Costs
SAN JOSE, Calif. — March 7, 2023 — Arlo Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: ARLO), a leading smart home security brand announced today an integrated partnership with Citizens Pay, a market leader in consumer installment financing, to lower the barrier of entry and broaden the market for DIY home security. Plans include 0% APR financing and a simple point-of-sale experience for consumers.
Arlo Total Security powered by Citizens Pay will allow consumers to avoid the upfront investment typically required by DIY security purchases while bundling the hardware and professional monitoring into a single, low monthly payment. Several plans will be available at various price points and subscribers will have the option to upgrade to the latest technology every three years.
