Arlo launches its first wire-free floodlight and security camera


Arlo has launched its first wire-free floodlight at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas with an integrated 2K camera for even more coverage and security.

Arlo has also launched Arlo SmartCloud – a global platform that adds numerous capabilities and features like computer vision to enhance live streaming and storage.

The new Arlo Pro 3 Floodlight camera is an extension of the award-winning Arlo range.

It offers a versatile floodlight through the integrated powerful LEDs with customisable lighting configurations.

Ideal for a home or small business, the 2K HDR camera also provides a 160-degree field of view as well as two way audio and a built-in siren.

The ambient light sensor allows the floodlight camera to automatically measure the amount of surrounding light.

This means users can customise when the floodlight turns on via the companion Arlo app.

When a customer purchases the Arlo Pro 3 Floodlight camera they will also receive a complimentary three-month trial to Arlo’s AI subscription-based Arlo Smart service.

Australian pricing and availability have yet to be announced.

The Arlo SmartCloud can be deployed as part of an advanced subscription service and deployed in a number of private and commercial use cases.

This is a SaaS version of its Arlo service plaform currently used as part of Arlo’s security camera solutions.
