    wow.. i would have rather have got this.. i paid like $700 for the 3 cam version.

  •  

    Aren't these held magnetically?

  •  

    How is the warranty if this is from outside AU?

    •  

      I'm not sure about the warranty but support on these products in Australia is shocking! can't speak to anyone, chat hardly works and bugs in there application still exists after reporting a year ago… have not been happy with after sales support at all so might think warranty also might not be great perhaps…

      Most likely Amazon will refer you to manufacturer and only if manufacturer refer you back to Amazon (in writing) then they can help on return.

    Nice find BA!

  •  

    Decent price but I think the 4 camera deals from wireless1 are much better value at 800 aud. Could be just me though.

    Racv had a limited deal recently for 3 camera system just south of 600 which sold out pretty quick.

  •  

    I bought the 3 camera version on ebay few days ago for $700 delivered. Been watching them for 2 weeks and was no mega Black friday deals on these.

    Also added 2 x 720p cameras from amazon USA for about $220 ish.
    This deal is no better. additional camera on mine is about $218 which is a normal discounted one

    This is cheap

    But I am finding Reolink Pro interesting and cheaper

    Bought a 4 camera system a couple of weeks back. Worst decision ever. Probably the most buggy unstable piece of crap I've ever used.

    • +1 vote

      Aww man, I was pretty keen on the system.

      What was so bad with it? With the different revisions I thought they would've ironed out the bugs by now.

      •  

        Half the time I open the app it says the system is off line.

        Live view on the Web requires flash

        Smart notifications (which cost more money) don't work, I just get notified for normal movement. There are many threads open for this.

        The devices take around 10 or seconds after video has stopped recording until it will start again on movement detection. So I can see a car stop in the driveway, but sometimes I don't see them leave.

        Takes a few moments for recording to start after motion detection, so if something moves past the frame quickly you can miss motion. I have a lane way past my house and half the recordings that are triggered by a car don't show the car.

        Cross triggering has a delay, so if you use motion on one camera to trigger recording on another, it can take around a second or two to activate.

        This is all on dedicated 50mb/50mb ethernet over copper

      Unlucky. Usually this is not the case. Only problem I’ve had is the app has its moments. However, which app doesn’t. I think developers like creating problems to fix from time to time. Maybe check your internet is capable of cloud security video?

    •  

      That's a shame. Mines pretty stable. The alexa comment prompted me to check for Google home support and it has it now, still haven't tried it yet.

      Could you also clarify what were the bugs you had?

    •  

      No issues on my end. Got my Arlo Pro 2x Camera for $399.

      Looking for a camera only deal now either a Pro or Pro 2.

    •  

      They get the job done for me, but otherwise, I wholeheartedly agree. Terrible system.

  •  

    Reviews killed it for me.

    Also note one reviewer mentioned that it came with american plugs, which are NOT adapted to 240V, which is why it smoked and melted when he just plugged it into a direct converter.

  •  

    Is the home base just for a separate wifi network, or does it actually do something smart like cache/store the videos?

    I suppose it will be unusable on ADSL2+?

    •  

      From what I have read the home base creates a separate wifi network just for the cameras, but it is reliant on your home network for uploading, viewing etc.

    •  

      Yes I have it set up at a relatives with access and it's day and night difference in terms of accessing the live feed. They have adsl2+ and I'm on nbn.

    Just realized the "no 3 seconds delay" record only works on wired setup. That sucks!

    To everyone thinking of buying Arlo, I have been doing some research over the last few weeks. Including the people I have spoken to, most people have suggested if they had their time again they wouldn't go down the Arlo path.

    A few people recommend Ring, Nest isn't an option for some as they only have wired options. Both Nest and Ring only offer paid subscriptions for cloud storage. Ring being the cheaper of the two when having multiple cameras.

      Could you post some links to the Ring or Nest reviews please.

      •  

        Here is my review I left on Amazon.

        Arlo is great because no subscription required for 7 day rolling videos. Ring doesn't have that.

    •  

      Im also thinking of jumping into the Home Camera CCTV setup, and have NFI whats best. Keen to know what everyone at OzB uses!

    •  

      What are the issues with them that you have heard?
      I am genuinely interested, as many of the reviews I read about the Arlo 2 (as opposed to the Arlo) were fairly good. They do not seem to be up to a good wired system, but a good solution as wireless systems go.

      •  

        Wow. The Amazon reviews are broadly really bad. I think I answered my own question from just reading that for 10 minutes.

  •  

    Are you sure it's 10% cash back? I thought it was back down to 8%?

  •  

    Not sure what all these negative reviews are about.

    The magnetic mounts work just fine - if you want serious because you live in gale force weather conditions then maybe you need to screw mount it - otherwise not really required as I have not had any issues with the weather we have recently had in Melbourne.

    The app was buggy but it still worked fine w/ some patience. With the recent update - the app has ironed out a few more creases. The record button is a little slow to respond but if you give it 2-3 seconds it will work on first input.

    I have had my inquiries resolved w/ the Arlo community in the same day. I've had to make a couple of inquiries in the last 4 months.

    I got mine for $700 (3-pack w/ a spare solar panel). Solar panels are a godsend - you can just set and forget.

    The only downside might be that it runs off your WIFI (because it is not wired).

    •  

      The magnetic mounts work fine. I use them for surveillance inside the boundaries on my home. However, I was persuaded to buy the screw-in mount for the eaves on the outside of my property due to fear that it could be stolen if left on a magnetic mount.

  •  

    I have the first generation and an Arlo Pro (2nd Gen) camera. The Arlo Pro 2 is 3rd Gen with 1080p recording.

    The app on android is slow and buggy, unsure how it goes on iOS.

    For these to be any good, you need to have them on constant AC power otherwise you'll be recharging them regularly as their motion detection is complete garbage. Trees and birds will constantly set it off.

    I have mine plugged in and recording whenever anything moves. I only check it if I am concerned about something.

    We regularly have folks go through our letterbox and the footage is too poor to be of any use at night. No lights, and letterbox is about 5 metres away from the camera.

    But, they do the job when I am away from home and want to keep an eye on the place. If you place them right and set up the motion sensitivity, you should get about 2-3 months of battery life.
