NETGEAR®, Inc. has introduced the Arlo Pro Wire-Free HD Security Camera Systems (VMS4X30). Featuring quick-charge rechargeable batteries and two-way audio, this latest addition to the Arlo family is a weather-proof, wire-free security camera complete with an ultra-wide 130-degree field of view.

Arlo Pro has a wire-free compact design that takes up minimal space and does not require a power outlet. The cameras can be easily and discreetly placed anywhere. A two-way talk feature enables the user to hear everything that is going on in and around the home.

The camera is powered by a long-lasting lithium-ion rechargeable battery that is quickly charged while inserted into the camera or by using the optional dual-bay Arlo Pro Charging Station.

Arlo Pro’s new RGB-IR night vision technology provides superior night vision viewing in clear, high-resolution video—even in total darkness. The RGB-IR technology evenly illuminates the night- scene viewing area, providing crisp details and images at the edges of the scene as well as in the far distance.

The camera’s onboard passive infrared motion sensor features a wide 130-degree capture angle and will detect movement at a range of up to 23 feet. 

The Smart Arm/Disarm feature enables the user to automatically arm or disarm the camera based on schedule or location. The Arlo application is now also accessible via Apple TV. The camera can also be connected to other Smart Home devices through platforms such as IFTTT, Samsung SmartThings® and others.

The Arlo Pro Systems (VMS4X30) are available now starting at $249.99. Arlo Pro Add-on Cameras (VMC4030) are priced at $189.99.
