Arlo HD 4-Pack - Security Camera Package Certified Refurbished Reviews
Submitted on 08/18/2020 Alarm Grid
The Arlo HD 4-Pack includes four (4) certified refurbished Arlo HD Cameras. These refurbished cameras are guaranteed to work just as effectively as brand-new cameras. The cameras work great with the free-to-use Arlo App for Android and iOS devices. However, you will still need to separately obtain an Arlo Base Station, which does not come included with this bundle. A single Arlo Base Station can support up to five (5) Arlo Cameras, so a single base station unit will suffice. It's also important to note that this 4-pack of camera deal has been discontinued by Alarm Grid, so you can no longer buy it from us. Instead, you must buy the cameras individually. But this was a good deal while it lasted. The refurbished bundle helped users save money by not needing ti buy new cameras. We give the Arlo HD 4-Pack a 5-Star rating.
One positive aspect of the Arlo HD 4-Pack is the fact that the cameras are known to be very easy to set up and use, even for DIY users. The cameras are wire-free, which is great for keeping things neat and organized. The cameras each come with a standard magnetic mount, and other mounting options are available for separate purchase. You can safely operate the cameras outdoors, as they feature an IP65 weather-resistant rating. They offer nice integrations with smart home assistants like Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, IFTTT, Stringify, and Telguard HomeControl Flex. The cameras offer IR night vision for capturing video in the dark. The 720p recording quality is nice, and the cameras are small and compact for easy hiding.
But there are also some downsides for the Arlo HD 4-Pack. The packaged deal is discontinued, and you can no longer purchase it from Alarm Grid. Each camera uses four (4) CR123A batteries, and you will need to change these batteries at least every few months if the cameras are used regularly. Battery costs can add-up very quickly. As mentioned earlier, the Arlo Base Station is required, so that will be a separate purchase. The cameras cannot integrate with Total Connect 2.0 or Alarm.com. And some users might be turned-off from purchasing refurbished cameras. But all things considered, we give this product a 5-Star rating, as it offers quite a bit of upside.

Bad: Discontinued, Requires Four (4) CR123A Batteries Each, Arlo Base Station Requires, No TC2 or ADC Integrations, Refurbished
