Arlo Safe vs. Arlo Secure: What’s The Difference?
Two Arlo Plans with one goal: Protect you (and your family) wherever life takes you.
Arlo Safe and Arlo Secure plans keep your family and home protected with just one tap. What exactly is the difference between the two, and which one is right for you?
The Arlo Secure App is a smart home security app. You can control all Arlo cameras and home security systems remotely. The Arlo Safe App, on the other hand, delivers exceptional personal protection and user experience outside the home, on the go.
If you’re new to the Arlo family, chances are you’ve come across Arlo Secure. Arlo Secure is a smart home security app that offers one tap interactive notifications, one tap 24/7 Emergency Response, and 4K video recordings.
All new Arlo cameras come with a free trial of Arlo Secure with access to advanced system features. Arlo Secure is compatible with all of our security cameras, including the Arlo Ultra 2 and the Arlo Pro 5S 2K Spotlight Camera.
After this trial period, you can decide whether to use your new cameras without a subscription, keep your Arlo Secure plan, or upgrade to something new.
With the Arlo Secure plan, you can react faster, take immediate action, and:
Protect your home and business: Use the Arlo Secure App to easily control, manage, and personalize home security across multiple properties.
See all the details: With the Arlo Secure App, you can instantly know what triggered every single camera. Get alerts that tell you when people, vehicles, animals, or packages have been detected by your camera.
Get a heads up before you watch live: Instantly see what triggered an alert through a short video clip from your phone’s lock screen. Automatic object detection of people, vehicles, animals, and packages keeps you in the loop at all times.
Store footage on the cloud: The major benefit of the Arlo Secure plan is exclusive cloud storage for your video streams. Automatically upload recordings of up to 2K video resolution to Arlo’s own secure cloud server. All recordings can be stored for up to 30 days, so you can revisit security camera footage from all relevant activity zones.
Ideal for families with children or elderly family members, the Arlo Secure Plus plan has all the basic benefits of Arlo Secure with a few upgrades. Unlimited cameras and premium 4K video cloud storage is ideal for monitoring large homes or base stations with complex security camera systems.
Many customers choose to upgrade to the Arlo Secure Plus plan for advanced emergency response. You can instantly alert 24/7 Live Security Experts to send police, fire, or medical responders to your home.
Even better, the Arlo Secure Plus plan lets you store important password data to inform the Arlo Emergency Response Team. With Arlo by your side, you will receive prompt and unhindered help in any emergency.
While Arlo Secure protects your home, Arlo Safe covers you and your loved ones wherever life takes you with one-touch emergency activation.
Only available in the United States (US), Arlo Safe is a personal and family safety app for total, on-the-go safety. Whether you’re walking home alone at night or in an unfamiliar area, Arlo Safe is your direct connection to help, anytime, anywhere.
The Arlo Safe app allows you to automatically notify your emergency contacts, check in with family members and instantly see their location, and automatically alert emergency response agents to send help to your exact location when you’ve been in a car accident. Plus, connect with medically trained security experts ready 24/7 to make sure you’re all set.
True to its name, Arlo Safe promotes three key safety pillars:
Stay safe with the tap of a button that connects you to a live security expert who will send emergency help directly to you. Upgrade to an Arlo Safe Family Bundle with one year of Arlo Safe plus 1-2 safety buttons. With Single Press Emergency Response, you can discreetly alert live security experts to get help in the palm of your hand.
If your family is anything like ours, they all have different schedules and places to be. Key features like location sharing, place alerts, and detailed check-in history help you keep tabs on your family 24/7. Plus, accessories like the Arlo Safe button make it easier to access help in minutes. Get notifications when family members arrive or leave their most popular locations like school, home, and work.
Whether you’re commuting to work or cross-country on a road trip, accidents happen. Arlo Safe automatically detects an automobile crash and sends help if you’re unable to do so on your own.
By connecting and protecting what people care about most, Arlo Safe brings our vision to life — and peace of mind for the whole family.
