The Arlo Go 2 is a versatile battery-powered security camera which can be placed anywhere and stream video via both cellular or wi-fi. Its arrival brings the UK up to speed with the US market, where the camera is already available in LTE form, and adds features like industry standard 1080P with the much rarer cellular connectivity.

Specifically the Arlo Go 2 offers 1080P, color night vision (via a built-in spotlight), local storage via microSD, and up to 6 months battery on cellular connection (or 12 on wi-fi). Users can remotely trigger a built-in siren of 80db to deter possible intruders (or surprise wildlife). The camera is also conscious of its location via GPS, so able to indicate its location on a map – a feature intended for businesses with multiple installations but potentially useful for nature enthusiasts (or the forgetful!)
