    The Arlo Pro is a wireless home security camera developed by the American company Arlo Technologies. It is one of the most popular outdoor cameras on the market, designed with industry-leading features such as color night vision and smart motion detection. This Arlo security camera is a versatile and customizable surveillance solution that is easy to set up and use.

    The Arlo Pro 3, Pro 4, and Pro 5s are the latest Arlo cameras in this line.

    Features Overview

    Video Quality

    The Arlo Pro 3, Pro 4, and Pro 5 cameras all have the same video quality.

    All three Arlo Pro cameras capture video at a maximum resolution of 2K (2560x1440). They also feature HDR (High Dynamic Range) and a 160-degree field of view. The video quality is clear and sharp, making it easy to identify objects and people in the footage.

    Color Night Vision

    The Arlo Pro features color night vision, which lets it capture full-color video footage even in low-light conditions. This is an improvement over traditional black-and-white night vision, which can make it difficult to distinguish between different objects in the footage.

    The color night vision is achieved through the use of an advanced image sensor and image processing algorithms. The camera's image sensor is designed to capture more light than traditional sensors, which helps to improve the color and contrast of the video footage in low-light conditions. The camera also uses advanced algorithms to enhance the color and sharpness of the video, resulting in a clearer and more detailed image.

    With color night vision, the Arlo Pro can capture video footage in full color even in complete darkness, making it easier to identify objects and people in the footage. This feature is especially useful for outdoor surveillance, where lighting conditions can often be less than ideal.

    The infrared night vision of the camera automatically turns on when the night mode is enabled. However, it is recommended to turn off Night Vision if the camera is pointed toward reflective surfaces like windows to prevent any glare or unwanted effects.

    The Arlo Pro also has an integrated spotlight that makes its vision in low-light conditions significantly clearer and sharper.

    Cloud Storage and Recording Options

    The Arlo Secure subscription offers additional features and benefits for Arlo camera users.

    Like other Arlo security cameras, the Arlo Pro 4 and Arlo Pro 5S come with an Arlo Secure trial, which includes a rolling 30-day cloud recording of up to 2K video resolution. The trial lets your Arlo camera stream and record in the maximum resolution it is capable of.

    Once the free Arlo Secure trial ends, you will have the option of purchasing an Arlo Secure, Arlo Secure Plus, or Arlo Safe & Secure Pro plan to continue enjoying Arlo's paid features, such as Cloud Recording, Activity Zones, and Smart Notifications.

    Without a plan, you will still be able to enjoy basic features of the camera like watching live video, receiving basic notifications on your phone, and talking with visitors through the Arlo mobile app with the two-way audio feature.

    While you won't have the option for cloud storage, it is also possible to connect a USB device to your Arlo base station or Arlo SmartHub for local video storage. It's important to note that only recordings triggered by motion or sound detection will be saved to the local storage, while manual recordings will only be saved to the cloud.
