Arlo upgrades: a wireless video doorbell and Essential XL cam to make your home that much safer

Translation: Patrik Stainbrook

Home safety manufacturer Arlo is launching its popular video doorbell wirelessly. In addition, the Arlo Essential Spotlight camera will now also come in an XL version with a battery life of 365 days.

Arlo Wire-Free Video Doorbell

Video doorbells have long since conquered the Swiss market. This includes the popular Arlo Video Doorbell. And now it's also available wirelessly, making it easy to install anywhere. Visually, it's indistinguishable from the wired version. The new Arlo Video Doorbell impresses with an optimised diagonal viewing angle of 180° and 1080p HD quality. According to the manufacturer, it thus detects 25% more than conventional doorbells and records a detailed overall image. Since the Video Doorbell can be connected directly to Wi-Fi, no base station is required. It can also be used flexibly with rechargeable batteries, or connected to the mains by a specialist.

When I’m not working on my DIY projects, I’m probably chasing after a small, fast ball on a tennis court or in a gym hall. Once I’ve let off enough steam, I love soaking up the sun and discovering the wide world.
