NETGEAR Intros Smart Security Camera

netgear-arlo-vmc3030-1115NETGEAR today introduced Arlo Q (VMC3040) — a 1080p HD Security Camera with audio and two-way communication. The Arlo Q has a 4-megapixel-image sensor and built-in night vision as well as two-way audio so you can listen in on any room in the house and talk with anyone there, and receive alerts on iOS and Android devices when sounds are detected. It connects via Wi-Fi.

Using a 130-degree wide-angle lens, Arlo Q can see entire rooms from corner to corner. Multiple mounting options — desktop, magnetic or wall mounts and, when it detects something, it starts video streaming and cloud recording. With Arlo Q’s free basic video cloud storage plan, both motion — and sound-triggered videos are always stored in the cloud at no cost to customers or for an additional fee, Arlo Q’s optional Continuous Video Recording plan (CVR plan), which continuously records everything your cameras see 24/7 and securely stores this non-stop video feed in the cloud. You can rewind any camera to any point in time and track activity.

Arlo Q 1080p HD Security Camera with Audio (VMC3040) ships in December in the United States, and will launch in Australia, Canada, and Europe soon thereafter and lists for $219.99 (USD), £169.99 (GBP) and €219.99 (EUR). Here are all the specs.
