Netgear’s Arlo lineup has established itself as one of the most popular home security options on the market today. After first being announced late last year, we’re finally getting a release date on the latest accessory to join the Arlo family. The new Netgear Security Light goes beyond your typical outdoor luminary with smartphone control, adjustable temperature and Alexa-friendly features. More below.
One of the main reasons that Netgear has done so well for itself with the Arlo lineup is the wide range of price points it offers. Beginners can get in for around $150, while pro-grade models top out at $500 with a bevy of features including integrated DVR, 1080p streaming and more. Netgear’s inclusion of free 7-day cloud storage is also a standout, something that other brands typically charge a monthly recurring fee for.
The new Arlo Security Light delivers IP-65 weather resistance and a rechargeable battery, which is a standard feature on all outdoor cameras in the lineup. Where it goes next-level is the ability to adjust the LED light bulb’s temperature, from cool to warm, along with an option for flashing red as a warning against any unwelcome company.
Speaking of LED, this is one strong light with an impressive 400-lumen output, which is enough to illuminate an entire yard. Netgear alleviates any battery life concerns with a battery saver function that bounces between day and night modes. Motion detection will activate the light when needed, or it can be manually controlled by Alexa, your smartphone or IFTTT.
If you’re looking for something a bit more low-tech (and affordable), we’re big fans of these wide-angle Mpow Solar LED Lights. You can grab a 4-pack for $32 over at Amazon right now. While these do lack smartphone-control, the wall-mounted design makes for an easy solution to illuminating just about any space.
ALL-NEW ARLO SECURITY LIGHT SYSTEM ILLUMINATES OUTDOOR AREAS AND PROVIDES ALERTS AGAINST POTENTIAL THREATS
SAN JOSE, California — May 15, 2018 — NETGEAR®, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTGR), the worldwide leader in home networking and smart home security products, announced today the availability of the Arlo® Security Light System. A new addition to the best-selling Arlo Smart Home Security product portfolio, the all-new security light system is 100% wire-free and weather-resistant. Designed to illuminate dark, outdoor areas around the perimeter of homes and commercial properties, the Arlo Security Light System is a smart lighting solution that enables users to receive alerts whenever motion is detected and manage their system via the Arlo mobile app. The Arlo Security Light System is now available as one, two or three wire-free smart light kits.
The Arlo Security Light System was designed by NETGEAR to seamlessly integrate into existing Arlo smart security ecosystems. When motion is detected, the smart light triggers the user’s Arlo Smart Home HD Security Cameras to record and turn on additional lights as desired through simple menu options in the Arlo app. The Arlo app enables users to remotely control their security lights from anywhere, instantly sending email or mobile alerts whenever the lights are activated. Arlo Security Lights can also be controlled with simple voice commands via the Arlo Skill for Amazon Alexa®.
“Gone are the days of basic, non-connected security lights. Our all-new system is sophisticated, yet easy-to-use, working in concert with other products in the Arlo smart ecosystem for coordinated, automated outdoor detection and monitoring,” said Pat Collins, senior vice president of Arlo products at NETGEAR. “A completely wire-free setup means Arlo Security Light users aren’t restricted by cords or power sources. Integration into the Arlo mobile app delivers instant alerts, coupled with smart automation features, all easily accessible and controllable remotely anywhere, anytime. We take security seriously and the exterior of the home is no exception.”
The Arlo Security Light System enables users to illuminate and secure areas around their homes such as the entrance walkways, front gates, front yards, long driveways, deck and backyard areas including those behind the trees. Featuring superior motion sensitivity, the security lights can be adjusted to best serve each user’s specific security needs. Arlo Security Light System can be installed anywhere by any users without professional help, thanks to the battery power operation, and superior long range wireless connection to the bridge. It is shipped with rechargeable, removable battery and flexible mounting kit. Optional solar panel can be purchased separately to enable continuous operations without worrying about battery recharge.
To further draw attention and deter intruders, the Arlo Security Light System makes it easy to change colors, flash on or off, adjust beam width and more. Lights can be set to automatically flash red, or any other color, or illuminate in synchronized patterns individually or in groups when motion is detected by one of the lights or cameras, thus bringing attention to unexpected activity.
The Arlo Security Light System is available now in the U.S. through authorized NETGEAR partners and other reseller channels, ecommerce sites, and major retailers. The Arlo Security Light System is expected to be available worldwide later this year.
