Arlo introduced a new indoor security camera: the Essential surveillance camera can be integrated into the smart home and warns of intruders via the smartphone notification . At the same time, the manufacturer also thought about the protection of privacy.
Arlo is expanding its Essential product line with the Essential Wireless Doorbell and the Essential Spotlight Camera. As the builder announced in a press release on Wednesday, a new indoor security camera will be available from April 2021. With its compact design, the new Essential indoor camera should fit perfectly into the home. The flexible bracket and mounting plate allow it to be placed anywhere in the house. The surveillance camera has a 230 volt electrical connection and is connected to home WiFi.
Complete deactivation to protect privacy
If the surveillance camera detects movement, it automatically sends a notification to the owner’s smartphone. They can then watch the live video transmission in HD quality. A night vision mode can also detect intruders in the dark. According to the manufacturer, the AI-based security platform SMART allows the camera to differentiate between people and pets. If people are recognized, Essential users can communicate with them using a built-in microphone and speaker. In addition, a siren can be triggered manually or automatically as a deterrent.
If the Essential indoor camera is not currently filming, the audio and video functions may be completely disabled. To do this, the shutter of the camera is closed, which guarantees privacy. The videos recorded by the surveillance camera can be stored in the cloud for 30 days if desired.
Arlo Essential Indoor goes on sale April 1 and costs $ 129.
