Arlo Technologies Inc. announces Essential XL Spotlight and Essential wire-free cameras


Arlo Technologies, Inc., one of the providers of internet-connected camera brands, announced the addition of two wire-free security cameras to its Arlo Essential Series: the Arlo Essential XL Spotlight and Arlo Essential. The Essential Series delivers the peace of mind every family needs to feel protected, both outside and inside the home. The series is highlighted by the Essential XL Spotlight Camera which features an integrated, extended-life battery that works for up to one year on one charge and an integrated spotlight with colour night vision.

The two new cameras both feature 1080p HD video, two-way audio, motion detection alerts and a built-in siren – all in a beautifully compact, easy-to-install, wire-free design.

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 customise their experience to spot people, vehicles, animals or packages. Arlo Smart’s e911 feature provides access to emergency services local to the camera’s location for quick action in emergency situations. Controlled entirely through the Arlo app, users can easily view live streams and recordings, adjust their camera settings or access cloud recordings.
