Security cameras usually need to be connected to the same wireless network as your phone in order for them to pair successfully. Being able to access your security camera through your smartphone will allow you to keep tabs on what’s going on around your home even when you’re far away.
So, which mobile-friendly security camera should I buy? A camera with versatile capabilities like real-time motion detection and live stream capabilities is essential. With plenty of Arlo wired or wireless security cameras that connect to your mobile phone, peace of mind is a tap away. Here’s where to start:
Did you just move into your new home, and aren’t sure where to start? A security camera with high video resolution and color night vision is key to getting a clear picture on your phone. Available for both indoor and outdoor use, the Arlo 2nd Gen Essential Wireless Security Camera is completely wire-free and can be placed (almost) anywhere for added peace of mind. Set up a camera in the nursery to keep an eye on the baby and another in the living room to monitor your pet while you’re at work.
Monitoring your driveway on mobile is the secret to peace of mind. Pick a floodlight camera with high-resolution video so you can view clear, crisp footage on your phone. Ideal for larger areas, a floodlight camera is perfect for job sites, above a garage, or to monitor a vast backyard or alleyway. A floodlight camera such as the Arlo Pro 3 Floodlight Camera has integrated 2K video with HDR and a bright LED-powered floodlight to stop any trespasser in their tracks. Plus, you can reduce unwanted notifications with Activity Zones and only receive alerts that matter and avoid unnecessary notifications.
Perfectly set up to show you who is at the door, Arlo 2nd Gen Video Doorbell cameras come with 2-Way Audio capabilities so you can talk to someone at your door through your phone. With an Arlo Secure Plan, you can react faster and take immediate action from your video doorbell feed. Pro tip: Know the difference between a person, package, vehicle, or animal with Object Detection for smarter alerts.
