    Wireless is a good selling point but I just can't justify the price compares to wired ones. Got a friend installed these ones at home but the video quality simply just not in the same level as my home wired system.

    revivor, I have the Arlo Pro 4x Camera system, just put on a Arlo solar panel today "on the chicken Hutch". I was Unaware of the new firmware that fixed the battery drain. I Wondered why the battery was lasting longer. Great system.

    •  

      Is it worth getting the solar panel for the Arlo? I might need it for one on the side of the use facing a reserve creek.
      I suppose it will still be limited on it's functionality when using a solar.

    Op. Is it easy to install? The camera just screw into the wall?

  •  

    Couldn’t you get three proper cameras for much less than this price? Hikvision etc.

      Hikvision was said by US Gov to have spyware & ABC spread the words

    • +8 votes

      Nothing beats Hikvision right now on the market at the price point they are selling it for. They are like the Xiaomi's of cameras. The new Hikvision 4K, 8MP cameras are $200 on ebay and the pictures are STUNNING. Change to 4K to see footage example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y5HmHRy7pvo . After buying camera, you need to spend $400-500 on a 4K/8MP capable Hikvision NVR + big HD to make sure the 4K video is stored properly.

      One word of warning, Hikvision have horrible software and with regards to the spying, I believe there is some truth to this. The previous models all had a HUGE security issue whereby it was was extremely easy to reset any persons camera remotely if you knew their IP address (usually their ISP IP). Unfortunately, updating the firmware is a long and tedious process which I have not got around to and my cameras keep getting accessed by random internet trolls. I have my cams at the front/back of house so it's not really bothering me since there's no privacy issues for me personally. This issue affected all firmware 5.25 and below I believe. The new cameras sold today do not have this vulnerability, HOWEVER you never know… The old vulnerability was only discovered after millions of Hikvisions were sold/installed. People say Hikvision purposely allowed this vulnerability so the Chinese gov could access any remote camera. This could be true..

      Despite all of this, I am buying the new 4K/8MP versions and fitting these cameras at my house/stores since they really are the best you can get when compared on price:performance/feature ratio. You will simply not find any camera company out there that can deliver more features, better picture quality at this price point. The new 4K/8MP cams also have 265+ encoding. Similar competitors offering H.265 are selling their cams for 3/4x price point of the Hikvision's. I believe all Arlo Pros 1+2 do H.264 encoding, which is why people complain it's slow to stream since it uses a lot of bandwidth.. Watch this video to see comparison between H.265+, H.265, H264.. You can see how much bandwidth is consumed during a live feed. End result: H.265+ is a HUGE improvement which is only available on Hikvision. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jOH3u8ZNkjA

      To sum it up, I would get the Nest/Arlo Pro 2 if you want easy to install security. The apps are decent and you get alerted if there's movement around the house. You can also remotely activate the alarm. As for Hikvision I would get that if you need 24/7 recording with video like resolution that's on par with the Go PRO 7 camera. This is good for retail as you can wind back and check for thiefs, etc. They are also built like a tank, my old 2/3MP POE ones are still going strong after 5+ years, however be prepared for lousy software experience.

        Do you know of options other than ebay to buy hikvision cameras?

        •  

          AliExpress is the cheapest option but you have to wait longer to get them due to shipping times. You can buy from Australian resellers but the markup is huge (100%+)

    I've been waiting for this but the Finance Minister is asleep! I've got a 2x Arlo (original) at the moment and the pros most definitely outweigh the cons. It's easy to set up, even my parents were able to set up their Arlo Pro (not 2) easily. Fingers crossed this doesn't expire before the Finance Minister wakes up. Thanks op!

    Will it work well on ADSL2? Some reviews say you’ll need NBN to avoid lagging etc

    • +1 vote

      Depends what your main use is for. For recording, ADSL is fine but if you want real time viewing and 2 way audio then it may be an issue. I only have 8.3 Mbps down and 0.83Mbps upload speeds at home so there’s about 40-70 second delay on real time audio and video.

      Danlew,
      It does require a good bandwidth for decent remote Viewing, I am on 25Mb NBN. Have lag some times. I just stuck a 16 GB thumb drive in the base station, more that adequate storage.

  •  

    Great deal. Thanks!

    I experienced the battery drain issue with my Arlo Pro 1 system. Finally got it resolved when they sent me a replacement base station

  •  

    Arlo just seems so expensive, even at this price.

    I really only want them to monitor the kids rooms and backyard.

  •  

    True.. Arlo is so expensive even at this price.

  •  

    Good system, i have a 5 camera setup - this (was) a very good price. The picture is decent, night vision is good, they're very well made so the waterproofing is excellent. Biggest problem i have is trying to angle the front cameras down enough so they don't record every single car that goes past. When this happens i have to charge them every couple of days.

  •  

    I believe a minim of two cameras is ideal, which I have set up. I would not use the magnetic mounts outdoors, only indoors. I have complete front coverage of my house using two cameras using fixed screw mounts which was easy to install. These cameras are facing each other. The only way someone can tamper with these is to jump my neighbors fences , climb the wall, and use a ladder to grab these around the corner of the house so they don't put their face in view. I missed this deal, I would have had complete 360 protection if I got three more. Oh wells.

  •  

    Oh no this has been ozbargained

  •  

    Omfg bargain!!! Got this from last Futu sale and I am sure I paid ~$850 for it

  •  

    This listing https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/263881875728?ul_noapp=true still has stock for single, 2 and 3 packs for $719.20 which is only $18 more after PODCAST 20% discount.
    Got the last 4 pack this morning for $950 and added extra single camera to take advantage of the 5 cameras allowed under the Basic cloud storage.

  •  

    Couldn't agree more on arlo being expensive, as much as want to have another one, I hope they give better deals now that it's almost the Black Friday. it really is good, quick to set up. But the battery charging is getting to my nerves already. We placed one on our front porch, faces a busy street, which I think drains the batteries faster than it should be.
