    Cheapest? Did u search on ozbargain b4?

    I read through the first review I found for this, as I did with the previous versions. It might pay to do some research, if you haven't already. The professional reviews are good, but a common theme is the negative comments from owners that follow the reviews; all the reviews that I've read. There seems to be various problems with this system, as with previous versions. I'm looking for something myself, so this is just a heads up; http://au.pcmag.com/netgear-arlo-pro-2/50668/review/netgear-... It's like Ozbargain - I always read the comments and I often learn something from people who have experience or knowledge of the product.

      I have the original Arlo and an Arlo Pro camera with solar charger.

      Does the job and has been a massive help.

        That's great. Still reading, because I am interested. It seems to be hit and miss. Just found this from a review on amazon:
        "Please be VERY aware that this product (Arlo Pro 2 1080p) has a serious flaw. It will regularly and randomly go offline and only removing the battery will reset it and bring it back online. When this happens the battery depletes at approximately 10% per hour. Thus completely dead in 10 hours. I have had an Arlo Pro 1 with five cameras for a long time without issue. But the Arlo Pro 2 has a fault and it is fundamental. A lot of people are discussing this on the Netgear community. Please be aware of the before you buy."

        Similar complaints with night vision being a biggy, also discussed at length on the netgear forum. Still reading, battery issues but probably linked to the above. Zones not working, along with other features, unless connected to power. People who had previous versions believe video quality is worse (night and day video), which is surprising - that's supposed to be one of the improvements.

        If you're interested (anyone), some of the problems relate to the cameras not having features unless plugged into power. One of the commenters following the pcmag review (link above) gave details for what seems a well thought out power supply for the cameras. It's extra, of course.

          Main issue with Arlo is reliability, though experiences in that respect are hugely variable, seemingly ranging from trouble-free to endless frustration. I'd count myself as somewhere in the middle.

          I began keeping notes on issues I've encountered two months ago and so far have logged eight noteworthy instances of Arlo failing to perform - the most significant being a ~24 hour downtime related to this incident.

          Arlo is super easy to set up and probably the 'least worst' of the wire-free options, but if you can avoid it, do so. I've recently been salivating over Ubiquiti wired cameras as eventual replacements.

    What is the benefits of such a system vs a PoE style systrem? I guess it would best suite people who rent as they can’t drill holes and run cables?

    Thanks OP! purchased this yesterday at HN for $680 because i also had the $50 Amex deal as well…630 + $50 cashback sounds a lot better lol

      How’s your experience so far ?

        Sheesh, give him a minute :)

        hey i really enjoy them, the lag is concerning, but it is what it is when you choose the complete wireless system vs PoE. It'd been very clear for me day and night, running both powered to a double powerpoint next to my electric garage door motor
