    Not buying into Arlo until they introduce PoE to their outdoor cameras…….

    • +12 votes

      Introducing PoE would defeat the purpose of their whole 'wireless option' sales pitch for those who don't want to run cables through their home…

      Your comment bares no weight in a non-existent argument as the argument is Wireless vs PoE, then why is one better for your situation than the other, then what's the best system and brand you can afford for your budget.

        Agree with Andy. If you want PoE you better off buying a hikvision system. Arlo is favoured by many for the simplicity of setup and ability to move around as desired.

          My hikvision experience has been terrible. Just wondering what camera do you recommend?

          At the moment I am using the 360AI Smart Camera. You can get the 1080P version for a few bucks more https://www.umart.com.au/360-Smart-Camera-720P-Night-Vision_...

          @andrew81: Looks like a nest clone

        •  

          @andrew81: it all depends on your budget and network speeds. The one that’s good bang for buck is this 4MP one.

          In Aus they were selling around $150 but AliExpress have them for almost half that. From the research I did, I narrowed my searches to turrent style instead of bullet or dome as they had better reviews and less issues.

          If you have a higher budget you can go the 8MP which is a newer version and has the better compression format (H.265) so uses less network traffic compared to H.264. Including the NPR a 4 camera setup of these would cost around $1100 via aliexpress or $1500 via eBay (before any site wide discounts)

          @asa79: very similar. I have the original nest 720p aka dropcam :)

        •  

          @Slo20: thank you for the details.

      Is poe.. power over ethernet

        Yes. Once these wireless cameras are wired, I will buy them.. said that one guy on OzBargain circa june 2018.

    •  

      Maybe wireless charging would be better

    I have these and they're pretty good. My advice though is to get a 5-camera pack up front unless you're really really sure you just want 3, because adding cameras is very expensive (with that said JB recently had a sale on standalone cameras that brought them to $250, usually it's $360 though you can negotiate down to about $320).

  •  

    $250 per camera sounds like too expensive to me………

  •  

    How long real life do the batteries last?

    •  

      A long time considering it's wireless. General use will get you about 3 months before needing a recharge. That's with notifications and motion and monitoring on. Unless you sit there and watch it all day, then it won't last as long. For what it is, it's still impressive and charging doesn't take that long.

      •  

        Thanks, so will have to get up on roof to recharge 4 times a years

        •  

          Nope, they detach and you charge wherever you want.

        •  

          @DonaldDr4per: I think they meant to disconnect it, take it down and recharge it.

          In which case they'd need to get back up on the roof to put it back, so it'd be 8 times a year (removing and putting it back).

        •  

          Charge one of the more accessible cameras, remove its battery, take the battery to the less accessible camera, and swap it in place. Or fork out for the overpriced charging station and a spare battery.

          But changing the battery isn't the only thing requiring physical access to the camera. If it goes offline due to some random glitch, or a Netgear-initiated one (e.g. a troublesome base station firmware update recently knocked a lot of cameras offline), it may stubbonly refuse to come back online unless it's reset by removing the battery, or brought to the base station to re-pair it.

          They're not as set-and-forget as wired cameras and you're setting yourself up for a lot of potential frustration putting them in hard to get to locations. Also take note of range limitations regarding the PIR motion detection and night vision.

          Regarding battery life, I get about a month and a half from a Pro 2 that averages around 20 events totalling around 5 mins of recording time a day.

  •  

    Personally I've had a lot of bad experiences with solar-charged security light - think it's the battery in them that tend to die quite quickly (say within a year). So somehow I am worried about the longevity of this setup, especially considering the battery is going to be encased in a unit that's exposed to extreme heat in the middle of summer. I am sure it'll work pretty good when it's first installed, but then longer-term probably need to consider the cost of replacing batteries etc. Arlo battery is proprietary and pricey.

    But other than that the friends who have them can't stop raving about it.

    Upvoted for good price - it's the lowest so far.

  •  

    A cheaper alternative is reolink Argus 2. Although no cloud recording or base station. But comparably good or better than Arlo pro 2 based on reviews

    •  

      I was planning on getting it but it's only 15fps for the reolink Argus 2 is 15fps vs 30fps for the netgear Arlo 2.

      The fps can be the difference of getting a person's face.

  •  

    Netgear also starting an Australian division. More Arlo ecosystem products on the way soon.

  •  

    Have the Arlo Pro, the lag is horrendous. About 10 secs between what is happening in real life to what i am seeing on my phone in live view.

    Tried everything with Netgear tech support, no solution. Hopefully this will be an improvement.

    •  

      I had the original Arlo from about 4 years ago. It also suffered from terrible lag. It had about a 70% false detection rate and when it did detect, often the lag meant it was useless. Kind of put me off Arlos in general so interested to know if anyone has owned the original and has a view on whether the new Arlo products have improved.

  •  

    Do the cameras need to be set up with wifi? Need something for my farm and there is very poor service there.

    •  

      Similar situation and looking at an Arlo Go as a possible solution. It works using a 3G/4G signal rather than wi-fi.

    Is there a better poe camera kit?
