Arlo has introduced new additions to its Pro and Ultra series of security cameras. The new Pro 4 retains all the great features of its predecessor, but offers an easier DIY setup with its ability to connect directly to a Wi-Fi network.
Just like the Arlo Pro 3, the new Pro 4 security camera is capable of capturing 2K HDR video with a 160-degree field of view. It also has an integrated spotlight for color night vision. Unlike the Pro 3, however, the Arlo Pro 4 doesn't require a smart home hub. This means it can even be installed as a standalone security solution in your home. The camera is compatible with Amazon's Alexa, Google Assistant, as well as IFTTT. Arlo claims the removable battery inside the Pro 4 can last up to six months on a single charge.
The more expensive Arlo Ultra 2 offers 4K video with HDR and a 180-degree field of view. It also has an integrated spotlight for color night vision, two-way audio, a siren, and up to six months of battery life. In addition to Alexa, Google Assistant and IFTTT, the Arlo Ultra 2 is compatible with HomeKit as well.
The new Arlo Pro 4 is now available to pre-order on Arlo.com and Best Buy for $200. Arlo's Ultra 2 one- and two-camera kits, on the other hand, start at $300 and can now be pre-ordered on Amazon, Arlo.com, and Best Buy. If you want an Ultra 2 four-camera kit, you can grab one today from Costco for $900.
