Keeping our Home Secure
For the past few years, my husband and I have been talking about home security. We wanted a way to be able to keep our home secure while we were at home and away as well as keep tabs on our kids when they were in different areas of the house. We looked at several camera and home security options but the upfront cost was usually thousands of dollars with a monthly fee as well. I didn’t realize there were other options out there until learning about Best Buy’s Arlo by Netgear camera system.


Arlo Netgear Best Buy


Arlo is a wireless camera system, with a 4 camera exclusive set available only at Best Buy. The camera set is motion activated and records in 720p video. Other features of this set include:

  • Downloadable apps enable you to view live video from your compatible Android, Apple® iOS, Amazon Kindle, Windows or Mac device
  • For use inside and outside – weatherproof for temperatures ranging from 14° to 122°
  • Enables you to capture 720p video footage both during the day and at night , with a 130° field of view
  • Motion-activated design automatically records motion once detected, sending e-mail or app notifications
  • Comes with 6 magnetic camera mounts and 9 mounting screws, for easy installation on a wall or flat surface
  • Works with other Netgear products

I must say that I am super impressed with this camera system. The cameras are tiny and it’s nice that there are no wires. We can set the motion for certain times of day, when we are away and it’s all able to be done with the Arlo app from my phone. I’ve noticed that when I’m away from my house, that I can see when the ups driver drops off a package or the neighbor kids want to come play.  I can also peek in on the rest of my family when I’m away at work and it’s fun to be able to see what they are doing.  The video is really nice and the way that the app is outlined makes it super easy to use.

Along with our Arlo camera system, is paired a Netgear® Nighthawk™ DST Router. This is not just any router and I’ve come to realize this as I compared it to the router that we were using before. It is also exclusively available at Best Buy. It eliminates the problems of dead zones and slow wi-fi, which can happen with an average router. I’ve noticed just how quickly my internet is even if we’ve got 2 kids on ipads, are streaming on the TV and I’m working on my laptop. Generally, I would feel some lag on my computer with all of this going on, but not with the Netgear® Nighthawk™.

Other features of this awesome router include:

  • Built to support 10+ connected devices – you can also prioritize devices for streaming videos or music, and included advanced features for lag-free gaming
  • Best Buy makes it easy with this new high performance Wi-Fi router, which includes a Wi-Fi extender and Geek Squad Set Up and Support via phone & web, for one full year.
  • The Geek Squad service via phone & web allows customers to call or get help 24/7 whenever they want, vs. the need to schedule an appointment.
