Arlo Baby

by Volker Weber

ABC1000 family transparent

I am huge fan of the Arlo security camera system. There is an Arlo Pro at my door and a few Arlos around the house. Whether it's night or whether I am away, they tell me if somebody is approaching the house and what they are up to. The Arlo Baby is a completely different value proposition, and I have no use case for it. So I am just going to tell you that it exists, that it will be shown at this year's IFA in Berlin and should be available soon.

Arlo Baby is a supernanny. It can check temperature, humidity and VOCs levels where the baby sleeps. It can trigger sound and motion alerts, it can distinguish a crying baby from other sounds, it has advanced night vision and can transmit HD video. It serves as a multicolor night light, it can play lullabies and it has two way audio communication. It all integrates into the same Arlo app.

I don't have a baby to check on and the dog is pretty much grown up, so I am not going to ask for a test sample. Make of it what you want. What I can say is that all Arlo products I did try in the past were simply awesome.

I would have a use case, but 250$ / 299€ is a pretty steep price point. Competition is at half the price, possibly even two digits, maybe missing the VOC sensors (but really, that's a luxury, the camera already is). And for replacing an existing device which fulfills its job flawlessly... no way.

"... and the dog is pretty much grown up.". That made me laugh out loud.

I'm will be in a position to test in about 6 weeks if they need a reviewer.
