Arlo Pro 2 camera contains everything you would expect from a wireless Wi-Fi surveillance camera. It is robust enough to withstand the weather, has two-way communication along with an intuitive app, which is quite easy to use. Since Arlo Login is equipped with both motion and sound detection, the camera does not rely on motion to trigger a notification. This is a very useful feature if you want to see what was going on in the neighborhood and to find out if our animals were causing any harm.
Large field of vision
You will be amazed at how much you could see with this camera. Wherever you install the camera, you can view a large area precisely. This incredible camera will give a complete overview of the dead end.
You will also have a great view of the backyard, but looking over the fence into the abandoned property would have required a different type of surveillance camera. Inside you could see the entirety of each room in which you have placed the camera.
Another incredible feature of this camera is the wide range of built-in microphones. The camera has the ability to pick up the clatter of dog nails on the parquet floors as clearly as the steps of the people crossing the street and entering their vehicles in the morning. You can also try to communicate with the dog (and with each other) and you will find that the messages are received loud and clear.
One thing that you will learn while using the camera is that you need to manually turn off the two-way conversation function in the app as soon as you activate it.
Excellent night vision
You will be surprised to see how crisp and clear the picture quality is during the nighttime. Regardless of whether the camera was installed outdoors or indoors, it automatically adapted to the lighting conditions in order to deliver an image of the highest quality. You can make use of the app to adjust the camera to different lighting conditions.
The only thing that will annoy you will be the inconsistency between black and white or color images in low light. Sometimes the videos were in color from the middle of the night, but it was dark and I could never figure out what made the difference.
Hypersensitive motion detection
It is a well-known fact that the Arlo Pro 2 camera records movements. However, it is so sensitive that your cell phone will be flooded with warning messages telling you that “motion is detected”. When the camera is in front, it will pick up every person going to school or work in the morning and bombard you again when everyone in the neighborhood comes back home.
Unfortunately, you will not be able to find a way to change the alert or motion detection settings, but you can easily put the camera on a schedule. You can keep the camera still during the hours that triggered many alarms, but it meant that if something troubling happened during that time, you would not notice it. It would be better if there were a way to either limit the warnings or change the motion detection settings.
