Anyone here use Wifi security cameras?
I have 4 Arlo Pro cameras, and I have been using them about 2.5 years now.
At the time, I looked at all the various makes and models, but I liked there were no monthly fees for Arlo cameras (unless you want them to store more than 7 days worth of video online).
I originally bought 1 base station and 1 camera, but added the other 3 cameras later. Had I known I would have ended up with 4 cameras, I could have saved some money and bought it all in 1 package. But, oh well…
Overall, I have been super satisfied with the Arlos. I like that I can recharge them, and no wires are needed. The battery does last about 2x longer when the outdoor temp is below 90F. I live in TX, so it gets pretty hot here.
Online, most reviews are positive - the only complaints I commonly see if concerning the Geofencing option, but I do not use that. I want them recording outside even if I am home.
I get instant notifications on my cell phone anytime someone is at my front or back door. And, I can even see who is at my door before I answer the door.
Being in the criminal justice field, I have quite a few enemies. It is nice to see what is going on around where I live, even when I am away.
I am very happy with the Arlo Pro Cameras. I have a 256GB USB drive hooked to the base station, so I can store 3-4 years of videos locally as well. I got the USB flash drive so I’d have no moving parts like a normal hard drive has.
What brands do some of you guys use?
