Many of us would like to make our homes safer. And not just safe from crime (though that's clearly the top priority). We'd also like to avoid the intrusions of solicitors, salespeople, neighborhood busybodies and, well, anyone we're not in the mood to deal with. Does any of this describe you? If so, we've found an incredible sale at Amazon. The Arlo Essential Wireless Video Doorbell is one of the best smart sentries out there. And right now, you can get it for just $94, a cool 54% off. It's not even this cheap at Arlo.com. Time to pounce!
Live video feed
The Arlo Essential Wireless Video Doorbell isn’t your run-of-the-mill doorbell. It’s a smart device with 24/7 HD video streaming and a wide field of view — 180 degrees, compared to the Ring Video Doorbell 3's 160 degrees. Simply sync it with your smartphone, tablet or laptop via Wi-Fi and the Arlo app, and you'll always be able to keep an eye on your home — even if you’re at work, on vacation or out running an errand.
"This Arlo Essential Video Doorbell Wire-Free was easy to install and works very well. The setup was easy. There are some features that haven't been as simple as the rest to figure out (such as making a pre-recorded message when the doorbell is pressed,) but other than that, I'm very pleased," related one five-star reviewer. "It is not overly sensitive, as I've heard some cameras can be. It doesn't alert me when the wind blows or anything annoying like that. It only alerts me when people, cars or animals are close or, of course, when the button is pressed."
Phone call notifications
But what really separates the Arlo Essential Wireless Video Doorbell from something like the Ring Video Doorbell 3 is its advanced notifications. Instead of getting a standard notification banner on your phone that you can simply swipe away, you'll actually get a phone call for two-way talk from the Arlo doorbell itself. This way you'll really pay attention to that phone alert, instead of blithely swiping it away.
"This is our third smart doorbell, and it is my favorite! It does not notify for every car that passes by or when the wind moves the trees. I love not getting meaningless notifications all day long. Truly better than Ring or Nest," said another reviewer.
Wider motion zones
The Arlo Essential Wireless Video Doorbell has a customizable motion detection system that can alert you when anyone sets foot on your property. Its "near" motion zone detects areas up to 20 feet away from your front door (Ring's is 15 feet), so notifications are more precise compared to previous models. It even works after dark, using infrared night vision.
The Arlo Essential Wireless Video Doorbell is compatible with Android and iOS smartphones and tablets, Alexa and Google Assistant smart-home hubs and speakers and Windows 10 and MacOS laptops.
