Purchased my Arlo Q today from another vendor. I had it up and running in 15 minutes linked with a Netgear Nighthawk router. Smooth setup without any hitches. Great videos. The sound is so, so, and I am unable to to talk remotely. But what else would you expect from such a small device and you do not need great sound since it is a security device rather than a communication device. I already have the Arlo Q accessible from my computer, cell phone and tablet. I returned the last Canary today that was the third Canary in a row I could not get to link up to my network so I had great hopes for my new Arlo Q and it appears to be all I expected. So far my only concern is the bright blue light on the front of the camera. I may cover it up with a small piece of white medical tape so it will not longer draw the attention of an burglar.
01-10-2016 Update - There is a way to turn off the blue light in the menu. I tested viewing the Arlo Q remotely in three places today. I...
I own two of the Arlo wireless cameras and have been satisfied with them for my purposes, which are to monitor and elderly relative at a remote location. The Arlo Q was purchased to install in my home for general monitoring and security, I really like the audio monitoring feature. It's quite useful when checking on the status of things at home while away.
The packaging is quite elegant and Apple like in execution and design. Everything required to install was included including drywall anchors (not used in my case), mounting plate and four screws.
The setup of the Arlo Q was extremely simple, connect the 9 ft. long, detachable USB cable to a power source, provide the WIFI network credentials and five minutes later the camera was functional. I mounted mine about 8 high in a room with Cathedral ceilings and it covers the entire room I was interested in monitoring. The camera was easily added to my existing account that included two cameras at another...
Overall the best security camera option.
Pros 1. Motion only recording Cameras like Nest record everything, which is both unnecessary and a tremendous waste of bandwidth. The Arlo Q does a very decent job of selectively recordings so you only get events, thereby impacting other internet activities
2. Great night vision It's actually worse when if I turn on outside lights then if I let the camera do its thing.
3. Pricing structure Unlike Nest, the Arlo is much cheaper to record with for as many as 10 cameras. One plan of $10 a month covers all 10. With Nest you pay $100 then $50 a year per camera. This is likely because Arlo records only motion, but that's all you should need to record anyways.
Cons 1. Slow Connecting to get a live feed on both mobile and web desktop feels like it takes forever. I think it takes about 5-6 seconds to connect, which these days is slow. Hear a noise and want to check it out? The...
