A very versatile and unique mounting option for the Arlo HD, Arlo Pro and Arlo Pro 2 Cameras is the Arlo Quadpod Mount. This accessory consists of four attached legs and a middle portion where an Arlo Camera can be secured. The legs are flexible to provide several positioning options.

There are many possibilities with the Arlo Quadpod Mount and its flexible legs. The camera can be positioned horizontally or vertically upward on the center portion, and the Quadpod will serve as a stand. This setup allows the camera to look ahead or directly upward depending on the user's needs.

It is also possible to secure the camera to one of the legs and leave the other three legs on the ground. The leg with the camera can then be positioned as needed to give the camera a different view. Another option is to wrap the flexible legs to a pole or even a sturdy tree branch with the camera secured in the center. Since these cameras can operate wirelessly with no power cords, total installation freedom can be achieved.

Regardless of how the Arlo Quadpod Mount is used, the camera itself should always be within 300 feet of the Arlo Base Station. Obstacles like walls, ceilings and large metal objects may reduce this maximum distance. Arlo also offers other mounting options for their cameras, including Wall Mounts, Knob Mounts, Outdoor Mounts and Table and Ceiling Mounts.

The Arlo VMA4500 is the quadpod mount for the Arlo, Arlo Pro, and Arlo Pro 2 Cameras. The compatible Arlo Camera is mounted in the center of the quadpod, and four (4) legs keep the camera upright. The legs are flexible so that you can mount the camera in a variety of different ways. We have found that the quadpod legs do an outstanding job of keeping the camera upright, and they really allow for many different positioning options and angles. Overall, we really like the Arlo VMA4500 for compatible Arlo devices, and we have no problem giving this product a 5-Star rating.

The biggest benefit to the Arlo VMA4500 is that it keeps an Arlo Camera upright and positioned. That's really the most important job of any camera mount, and the Arlo quadpod mount accomplishes that task. The flexible legs are a nice touch, as they give the end user a variety of different options for mounting their camera. Although it isn't the most conventional option for mounting an Arlo Camera, we do think the Arlo VMA4500 does offer some nice benefits.

But there are some downsides to the Arlo VMA4500 that should be discussed. None of these downsides are super major, but you should still keep them in mind. The Arlo Cameras have a wireless range of about 300 feet from the Arlo Base Station, so that may limit where you can position the cameras. Since the quadpod mount isn't hardwired to anything, it may fall over in a very windy environment. This would need to be a pretty strong wind, but it is still something to consider. Finally, the quadpod mount looks very goofy, and it sort of makes the attached Arlo Camera appear as a four-legged animal. But if aesthetics aren't important to you, then this quadpod mount really gets the job done. We give the Arlo VMA4500 a perfect 5-Star rating.

Good: Keeps Camera Upright, Flexible Legs, Variety of Mounting Options & Positions

Bad: 300 Foot Range to Base Station, May Fall Over in Heavy Winds, Looks Goofy
