Does my Arlo Pro 3 Floodlight Camera need to be plugged in to use?

No. Your Arlo Pro 3 Floodlight Camera is wire-free and does not require a continuous AC power connection to operate. If you want to connect your Arlo Pro 3 Floodlight Camera to continuous power, you can purchase and use an Outdoor Magnetic Charging Cable. You can also use an Arlo Solar Panel to power your Arlo camera.

Note: You can’t hardwire the Arlo Pro 3 Floodlight Camera to a traditional junction box outlet.
