Why you should buy this Arlo video doorbell

The Arlo Essential Wireless Video Doorbell is one of the best video doorbells on the market, and an excellent alternative if you don’t want to go with a Ring video doorbell. Arlo is probably best known for its security cameras like the Arlo Pro 4, so it has a solid history in the smart home security space.

One of the best things about this Arlo video doorbell Prime Day deal is that this wire-free doorbell is easy to install; you can do it yourself with a screwdriver or drill. It has a 6,500mAh rechargeable battery that promises to last up to six months on a single charge, and no hub is needed as the doorbell connects directly to your Wi-Fi with a wide, 180-degree field of view that lets you see people at your door head to toe or packages on the ground.

The Arlo Essential Wireless Video Doorbell comes in black or white, and under the hood, it’s packed with features. The camera can detect everything from people to vehicles, animals, package delivery, and motion, with a 1536 x 1536 resolution video feed that lets you see details even in low light or bright sunny conditions, plus a night sensor.

Once motion is detected, the camera starts recording even before anyone tries to ring the doorbell thanks to Arlo Foresight, sending a notification to your phone so you can hear and speak to visitors with clear, two-way audio, or send a pre-recorded quick reply if you’re busy. Should an intruder show up at your door, the doorbell can notify emergency services and play an ear-piercing siren, while if you’re away on vacation and a package arrives, it can dial a pre-set contact.

Certified to withstand temperatures from -4 degrees to 113 degrees Fahrenheit, the Arlo Essential Wireless Video Doorbell can also weather wind and rain. When it comes to connectivity, it connects seamlessly to Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and Samsung SmartThings, as well as the free comprehensive app. The app itself is packed with all the usual options such as notification configurations and security zones, as well as a handy Silent Mode that bypasses the doorbell’s physical chime and app notifications — great if you have little ones napping.

With this Arlo video doorbell Prime Day deal, you also get a one-year limited warranty — and if your battery dies over time you can pick up a replacement for around $50. You can also pick up the Arlo base station or Smarthub (sold separately) to store videos securely and view them anytime, anywhere.

The 2-day Amazon Prime Early Access Sale is a bonus for 2022, so don’t hesitate to take advantage of this great deal on the Arlo Essential Wireless Video Doorbell. Save $48 off the normal $200 list price and snap up this deal for just $158 today.
