Netgear has announced its latest Arlo smart home security product, the Arlo Outdoor Smart Home Security Light. The light is wire-free, rechargeable, and weather resistant. It features a customizable LED light, motion detector, and optional solar panel.
The Arlo Security Light will automatically turn on whenever motion is detected, but motion sensitivity can be easily adjusted for different areas to fit specific security needs. When out of town, it is simple to set a schedule to turn lights on and off to give the illusion that someone is home. Setting up a schedule can also be done remotely through the free Arlo app.
You can personalize the Arlo Security Light by adjusting its colors and patterns for specific situations. For example, shine a glamorous Hollywood-style spotlight on your front door to welcome visitors, or use a cool, bright floodlight to illuminate your path while taking out the garbage at night. You can even set a light to flash red when it detects motion, to draw your neighbors’ attention or frighten away human or animal intruders. The Arlo app enables you to control your Arlo Security Light remotely from anywhere, and to receive instant email or mobile alerts whenever the light is activated.
The new security light can also work as a trigger for the Arlo cameras and the turning on of additonal lights. You can also connect your Arlo account to IFTTT-compatible devices to create a series of automations. Additionally, the Arlo light supports Alexa, letting it be turned on and off via voice command.
“We’re excited to extend the Arlo Smart Home line of products to include 100% wire-free Security lights,” said Pat Collins, senior vice president of Arlo products at NETGEAR. “When we first looked at the Outdoor Security Light market, we quickly realized that there was a tremendous opportunity for us to innovate and significantly improve on what solutions are currently available. “By transforming the basic, unintelligent security light into a smart connected solution, Arlo now provides Consumers with an unprecedented ability to optimize and manage security for the perimeter of their homes. We’re also thrilled to offer customers the flexibility to combine and set up their Arlo lights to work intelligently with our 100% wire-free HD security cameras – all done easily through the Arlo mobile app.”
● 100% Wire-Free Set-Up
With no power cords or wiring hassles, you can easily mount your Arlo Security Light on walls, eaves, gazebos, and more, anywhere around your home, so you are not bound by the power source, but by where you want the light directed.
● Smart Controls with Arlo App
With the free Arlo app, you can control and automate Arlo Security Light from anywhere, and automatically receive instant alerts to your smartphone or email when it detects motion.
● PIR Motion Detection
You can set the sensitivity level for Arlo Security Light to turn on automatically when the PIR sensor detects motion, and even get motion-activated alerts without having your lights turn on.
Arlo Security Light is IP65-rated, making it ideal for outdoors, rain or shine.
● Customizable Light Settings
Adjust the colors and patterns (spotlight, floodlight, flashing) of your light for specific situations, and group together multiple lights and easily synchronize patterns to turn on/off together.
Use the Away Mode and discourage would-be burglars by scheduling your Arlo Security Light (through the app or manually) to turn on/off to give the illusion that someone is at home.
● Arlo Integration for Enhanced Home Safety
When movement triggers the Arlo Security Light to turn on, your Arlo Security Cameras can be configured to start recording so you can see the activity or have additional lights turn on.
● Smart Home Integration with Amazon Alexa and IFTTT
Use simple voice commands with Amazon Alexa to turn your outdoor security light on and off without lifting a finger. Arlo Security Light works with other IFTTT-compatible smart devices to create endless possibilities for safety and security.
● Rechargeable Battery
Long-lasting, rechargeable batteries take the expense out of uninterrupted security lighting and for added convenience; the optional solar panel accessory can keep the batteries charged indefinitely.
● Outdoor Mount
Easily adjustable mounts provide a 360-degree swivel and a 90-degree tilt for the perfect lighting angle when securing your Arlo Security Light over your door, porch, tree, and more.
