Completely wire free with a rechargeable battery but can be plugged in if you want. Cameras record in 1080p. Weatherproof and waterproof so they can stay outside all year. Comes with seven days of free cloud recordings. Works with smart homes.

What you get with this package are two wireless cameras and the base station that unites them. The cameras are completely wire-free and don't require you to plug them in, although you will need to plug them in for certain features. They record in 1080p HD resolutions and can be mounted just about anywhere.

Some of those features that require the camera to be plugged in include Activity Zones, where you can highlight parts of your camera's view to receive motion alerts for those sections, and Continuous Video Recording. The camera can record 24/7 if you want it to, and you can even upgrade to an Arlo subscription plan that lets you store the nonstop recordings in the cloud. When plugged in, the cameras can also provide a "3 Second Look Back," which gives you the activity from three seconds before a triggered event (like motion detection).

The Arlo Pro 2 works with your smart home system including Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, Samsung SmartThings, and more. You can view live video with just a simple voice command.

The kit comes with a one-month trial to Arlo Smart. This is a powerful service that upgrades your cameras with advanced features like advanced A.I. detection, lock screen notifications, and video storage up to 60 days.
