You know those grainy, laggy or black-and-white security footage that are hard to decipher? Having an Arlo Ultra will fix this problem.

Expansive 180-degree diagonal field of view

Additionally, with an expansive 180-degree diagonal field of view, Arlo Ultra delivers one of the widest viewing angles in the wire-free security camera industry, providing more flexibility with the camera positioning.

This is a better solution than the fixed, fish-eye lens set-up which also gives you a 180-degree field of view, but with a distorted vision.

LED integrated spotlight for night vision

A powerful LED integrated spotlight illuminates the night, allowing users to see colour in the dark or traditional black and white night vision, depending on which option you prefer.

Two-way audio with advanced noise cancellation for clearer sound

Arlo Ultra also takes audio quality to the next level for clearer and more natural conversations. Designed with dual-microphones, Arlo Ultra delivers two-way audio with advanced noise cancellation that minimises background noises and accentuates foreground audio, such as voices.

Now you can clearly hear who said what and who threw the first insult when a dispute arises.

Accessible smart home surveillance system for home and small business owners

Arlo seeks to serve a gap in the security market. If you can’t afford to employ a security company or hire round-the-clock security staff, but yet do not want to resort to a cheap, mass-market and low quality security camera, the Arlo Ultra is the right camera for you.

The Arlo Ultra provides home and small business owners with a convenient system that not only delivers cutting-edge image and audio quality, but also AI and computer vision capabilities at a reasonable price tag (with all things considered).

The beauty of it all is really that the whole system is wireless, making the camera placement extremely versatile. You can tuck your Arlo Ultra camera into flower pots, stick them on any wall or any other configuration as you deem fit.

Featuring a newly designed magnetic mount, Arlo Ultra enables easy mounting to ceilings, walls, eaves, or position on tables or counter surfaces. The mount snaps on easily and is surprisingly sturdy. It looks elegant too, without the need for an ugly swivel ball of sort.

Ultra is powered by a newly designed rechargeable battery and magnetic charging cable. Arlo Ultra also features a built-in siren that can be automatically triggered by motion, audio detection, or manually activated remotely from the Arlo app for added protection.

Pricing and subscriptions

As mentioned earlier, each Arlo Ultra system includes a free one-year Arlo Smart Premier subscription. The subscription service utilises AI and computer vision technology to deliver customised notifications regarding people, animal, vehicle and package detection.

Arlo Smart Premier also includes cloud recordings of video clips at 1080p or lower resolution for up to 30 days. Premium video recording for cloud storage of 4K clips is available as an add-on subscription, or users can store 4K clips locally at no added cost using the SmartHub’s microSD card slot.

You should factor in the yearly subscription fee for your long-term set-up and maintenance cost for the Arlo Ultra 4k surveillance system if you would like to continue storing your video clips on the cloud. Don’t forget that are more home security options available at txpremierlocksmith.com.
