Just because Black Friday and Cyber Monday have come and gone, it doesn’t mean the deals stop. Just ask our hardworking deals team if their work is done (hint, it’s not). Cyber Week is here, and we’ve spotted some fantastic deals on the Arlo Pro 2 security cameras on both Amazon and Best Buy.
A fair bit of warning: These security cameras are not cheap. In fact, they’re one of the more expensive options out there. But there’s a good reason for it. The cameras function better and perform better than just about any others we’ve tested. The cameras connect to a base station via a completely separate network from your main Wi-Fi network. It also allows for centralized recording of your cameras thanks to two USB ports on the base station itself.
It also sports geofencing and scheduling, allowing you not only to set times when you want the cameras active but also to be active outside of these times when you’re not at home. The picture quality is outstanding. Whereas other cameras often wash out due to bright light or sunlight, you can manually adjust exposure to keep the picture clear and useable.
The cameras record in 1080p and seven days of free cloud storage is provided with purchase (you can upgrade to longer storage for a fee, however). Larger packages can easily be used for small and medium businesses, and Arlo offers several business-centric features like cloud storage for large deployments and continuous video recording on a per camera basis with up to 30 days of storage.
None of the premium features are necessary for most home applications, however. Seven days of storage is more than enough for most, and if there are videos you’d like to save, you can easily download and store them from the app.
Several different Arlo packages are on sale on Best Buy and Amazon. We’ve shared the best deals we’ve found below:
- Two Camera Kit – $239 (43% off) on Amazon
- Three Camera Kit – $349 (40% off) on Amazon
- Four Camera Kit – $399 (38% off) at Best Buy
We haven’t been told how long these deals last, but we’d safely assume these will go back up in price sometime during the week. Our advice? Buy them now, you won’t be disappointed.
