Amazon offers the Arlo Essential Indoor Camera for $79.48 shipped. Normally fetching $100, today’s offer amounts to the second-best price to date at over 20% off. It beats our previous mention by $0.50 and comes within cents of the best price to date. Outfitting your Alexa or Google Assistant setup with a standalone smart home security camera, Arlo Essential pairs right to your home’s Wi-Fi with an indoor design. It sports a 1080p sensor and 130-degree field of view and even takes a more privacy-focused stance thanks to a built-in automated shield that covers the camera lens while you’re home for some extra peace of mind. Then other features like support for both Alexa and Google Assistant, night vision, motion alerts, and two-way talk round out the package. Our hands-on review takes a look at how the camera fairs in an Assistant ecosystem, and you can get more details down below.
If integration with Arlo’s smart home security stable isn’t that big of a draw, going with something like the more afforable Wyze Cam V3 is worth considering instead. This offering arrives with a similar indoor and standalone design, sporting much of the same 1080p recording and voice assistant features, too. It just so happens to have a lower $34 price tag.
Then go check out all of the other markdowns in our smart home guide now that we’re halfway through the week. On the smart home security front, Eve’s new Outdoor Cam is still one of the more notable offers up for grabs right now, delivering HomeKit Secure Video and other unique features at an all-time low of $212.50.
