Arlo has introduced what it claims to be the first wirefree surveillance camera and floodlight combo on the market. Without the need for mains power cabling, the Arlo Pro 3 Floodlight Camera will be much simpler to install than other contenders for the best outdoor security camera (opens in new tab).
Introduced at CES 2020 (opens in new tab), the camera offers 2K video with HDR and incorporates a zoom for homing in on objects and details. It also offers night vision, recording in color or black and white. The camera offers a 160-degree wide-angle view.
The LED light offers wide floodlight coverage, and is activated by motion of manually. The unit is powered by a long-lasting rechargeable battery. Integrating with the Arlo smart home security system, the unit offers two-way audio and a built-in siren.
The new camera seems to have much the same specification as the existing Arlo Pro 3, but with the addition of a brighter floodlight.
Pricing for the Arlo Pro 3 Floodlight Camera has yet to be confirmed, but the unit will go on sale this spring with a three-month free trial to the Arlo Smart cloud-based backup service.
