Amazon knocks $100 off Arlo Pro 3 home security camera system before Prime Day

Arlo Pro 3 – Wire-Free Security Add-On Camera

Although Prime Day has not yet officially arrived, some early Prime Day deals have already begun to roll in. The event officially starts on October 13, but if you’re in the market for something and see a great deal, go ahead and snag it. Products are likely to sell out quickly, especially on the really great Prime Day smart home deals.

Amazon has dropped the price of the Arlo Pro 3 home security camera system down to $400 for a total savings of $100. This package includes two wireless security cameras that can be mounted nearly anywhere inside or outside of your home.

The Arlo Pro 3 packs some impressive specs inside a small package. The camera has 2K HDR video, which means you can make out details even in areas of high contrast. Digital zoom makes it possible to zoom in and get a closer look at anything within the frame, and the high resolutions means you can examine things without losing clarity.

If your Arlo Pro 3 picks something up at night, the camera’s color night vision will give you a clear picture of whatever is moving around — and the integrated spotlight lets you illuminate an area and draw attention to any unwanted activity.

With a 160-degree field of view, the Arlo Pro 3 can be easily positioned to cover the widest possible angle.

The cameras are mounted through an easy-to-install magnetic mount. If you decide the camera could perform better in a different location, taking it down and adjusting its position takes only a few minutes of your time.

The cameras are wireless and run off of batteries. A single charge will last between three and six months and it only takes 3.5 hours to fully charge.

You’ll receive alerts of movement and activity through push notifications via which you can sound the alarm, turn on the spotlight, and more. The Arlo Pro 3 even includes features like package detection and up to 30 days of cloud storage.

If you have had your eye on a security camera for your home for a while, now is a great time to buy. The $400 price point nets you two cameras that will help keep your home safer. It’s one of the best Prime Day home security camera deals so far.

Smart home devices have become increasingly common, and if you want to smartify your doors, there are a lot of great solutions during the Prime Early Access Sale that will save you a few dollars in the process. Take the August smart lock, for example -- you can grab it from Amazon for $128 rather than the $200 it goes for, which is almost half off. That also means you can grab two for nearly the same price.

Why you should buy the August Smart Lock and Connect Wi-Fi Bridge
The August Smart Lock is great if you want something easy to install to make your doors a little bit smarter, especially since it can do things such as detect whether your door has been left open or not. What helps here is that the August smart lock installs over the inside part of any typical deadlock, meaning the exterior stays where it is, and you can use the same keys as before, which is a huge positive compared to smart locks that require you to change the whole thing. Access, as you may have surmised, happens through the application, which allows you to open and close the door directly from it and even share virtual keys with others if you'd like, which is great if you tend to rent a lot or have a room you only want a few people to access.
