One of the main reasons we bought our dog was because we wanted our children to be safe when in the house alone, even when they were teenagers in high school. A dog will protect or alert you if someone should come in or is at the door but we live in a time when there’s home invasions, we need more than a dog. Besides, our dog is now family and we want to make sure she’s safe too! There have been reports of knocking on a door and when the person opens it to see who it is, the intruder kicks it in. A home security system let’s you see who is at your door before answering. It also can watch your valuables outside. If you have a shed or out buildings with gardening equipment, you know they’ll be safe. As a NETGEAR Ambassador I get to try products and play with them so I can tell you if you should or should not consider the product for you and your family. This is not just a home security system The Arlo will alert you via smart phone when it detects motion. You’ll know when the kids get home, if you get a package delivered or if anyone comes onto your property. You set it up for what fits your home best.
We have two cameras but this system will support up to five.
Set up is simple, you plug it into your router, sync camera by holding a button and they sync automatically, go to the Arlo app, follow the instructions and you’re up and running. It’s That easy.
When we set it up we were in the middle of a snow storm so couldn’t get the cameras outside but that didn’t stop us. We played around and had the cameras in the house, one pointing outside the front window (So I could watch the snow) and the other my husband thought would be fun to point at me while I was working. He didn’t anticipate the prompt notifications on his phone when motion was detected and to have a little fun, I decided to dance in my chair with robot moves. Needless to say the camera was taken off me! We still find an interesting fact that many times during the night our cat would sit at the window and mess around with my decorations.
This gave us an idea that these would be perfect to see what our dog would do while we were gone. We haven’t been able to leave her out of her crate for fear she would destroy the house. She’s two and still very into everything.
The beauty of this 100% wireless system is cameras can go anywhere you want them! So when we’re out we can watch the outside of the house and what the dog is doing. SCORE!
