Arlo Pro 3 Floodlight Camera Review

Arlo Pro 3 Floodlight Camera Review

The arlo pro 3 floodlight camera combines a high-quality, motion-activated LED light and 2K video with the convenience of wire-free setup. It’s one of the best options for homeowners looking to protect their property.

The Pro 3 Floodlight Camera does have some limitations. For starters, it only works with Arlo systems. It also doesn’t come with cloud storage, which means you’ll have to pay for it if you want it.

Clear 2K video

If you’re looking for a smart floodlight camera that offers excellent quality video, then the arlo pro 3 floodlight camera is the one for you. Its 2K resolution delivers crisp, detailed imagery both during the day and in low light conditions. And, thanks to a large floodlight on the front, it also provides high-quality night video.

The camera is able to detect motion and audio and transmit them to the cloud, where they’re streamed to your Arlo account. The app also allows you to mark motion zones, select which areas you want to record, and adjust other settings to optimize battery life.

Talk and Listen

The floodlight has a microphone that allows you to communicate with the camera via your smartphone. It also comes with a siren that you can turn on or off manually, as well as set rules to automatically activate it when the floodlight is triggered by motion or audio.

It’s a great feature that makes it a great addition to your smart security system and it also works well with Alexa and Google Assistant, though you can’t control these devices from the floodlight itself. You can however use the app to change its brightness, behavior and duration, as well as adjust the Dusk to Dawn setting.

But what we really like about the device is its neat design and wire-free installation. The floodlight itself can be powered by either an outdoor power adapter or solar panel charger (not included), and the magnetic charging cable is on the housing so you don’t have to remove it from the camera when you want to charge it.

It can be installed anywhere in your home, garden or outdoors, and it’s also waterproof. It’s rated to withstand dust, rain, direct shots with your water hose, and temperatures from -4 to 113 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s also backed by a 1-year limited hardware warranty.

Superior brightness

The arlo pro 3 floodlight camera offers superior brightness capabilities that make it one of the best outdoor security cameras on the market. It can deliver up to 3,000 lumens of light, which is double the amount you’d get from a 60-watt incandescent bulb.

That light is powered by a rechargeable Lithium-ion battery, which is located inside the central case of the camera. This means that the device can be recharged without the need for a power outlet, and the battery can be swapped out as necessary.

While other cameras in this range can only provide around 800 lumens, the Pro 3 Floodlight Camera can deliver up to 3,000 lumens. That’s more than twice as bright as competing options such as the Ring Floodlight Cam and Nest’s new floodlight cam, which offer up to 1,500 lumens of light each.

This makes it a great option for lighting up large areas of your yard, garden, or home. It’s rated to withstand dust, rain, sun, direct shots with your water hose, and temperatures that range from -4 to 113 degrees Fahrenheit.

It also features a 2K HDR video camera, 160-degree field of view, two way audio, custom lighting configs and a built-in siren. You can trigger the siren automatically or manually, and you can control the siren’s sensitivity in the app.

The pro 3 floodlight camera is also capable of detecting motion and alerting users to that activity. It can adjust its brightness and color night vision based on the surrounding environment to ensure optimal image and audio quality.

To further improve its brightness, the arlo pro 3 floodlight camera has a dedicated ambient light sensor. This allows users to set the sensitivity threshold to the surrounding environment in the app, which can help preserve the product’s battery life.

The arlo pro 3 floodlight camera can also be used in combination with a solar panel or an outdoor charging cable to keep it charged throughout the day. Personalized notifications keep you informed of events that matter, so you can take swift action–from phoning a friend to sounding an alarm or calling emergency services.

Wi-Fi-free design

The arlo pro 3 floodlight camera is the latest in the company’s line of wireless cameras. It offers the same great 2K video quality that Arlo’s other models offer, but adds a powerful floodlight to provide additional security lighting.

It’s a great addition to any home, particularly in areas that may need it most. It’s also very attractive, with the camera sitting in a white body with a black oval front that houses the sensor and microphone. The entire device is sealed to keep water out, and there’s no seam or joint to worry about – making it easy to install.

You can mount the camera on a wall or ceiling, or you can twist it onto the base that comes with it. We recommend using the Arlo ceiling adapter (sold separately) for optimal positioning. Once you’re satisfied with your placement, all that’s left to do is connect the Pro 3 Floodlight to your router and power up.

When you’re ready to view your camera feeds, open the Arlo app on your phone and tap Devices to see the floodlight in your list of devices. You can also tap On/Off to turn the light on and off, or adjust its brightness.

The light will stay on for the duration that you specify in the light settings, and then automatically turns off. You can also manually turn it off if you need it to.

If you’re an Arlo Smart subscriber, you can set up motion triggers in zones so that the floodlight is only activated when it senses movement. You can also configure audio triggers, which are triggered when the camera hears sounds in your home.

You can use the arlo pro 3 floodlight as a standalone unit or as part of a wider Arlo system. It’s easy to setup, with a straightforward setup process that involves a single remote. The Wi-Fi is strong enough to cover an area of your home or yard, and there’s a clear live feed with high quality audio.

Multi-user access

The arlo pro 3 floodlight camera is an impressive security device that jams a lot of useful features into one package. The camera comes with an ambient light sensor, which lets you set the floodlight to turn on automatically or when certain automations are triggered, a siren that can send police, fire, and medical services to your home, and two-way audio.

The Arlo app offers plenty of functionality and controls to make it easy for you to control your camera from any location. You can save 30 days of video history, get notifications for people, animals, and vehicles, and even see smoke and carbon monoxide to help prevent a house fire or a gas leak.

Another great feature that the arlo app offers is the ability to outline areas in your yard and specify what you want the camera to alert you about. You can also tell the camera to only record if it detects motion in those zones, and you can set a specific time when motion will trigger an alert.

You can also add friends to your Arlo account and give them limited access to your devices, which is a nice way for multiple people to see the same camera at the same time. These friends can view live streams and favorites from your cameras, and you can choose which cameras they see.

However, there are a few things that you should keep in mind when using this feature. First, you should only use it when your security is at risk. Then, you should always make sure that whoever is using the system has a secure password.

It is also important to note that you should only use multi-user access on devices you trust and where it makes sense to do so. This is especially true when managing campaign resources like remarketing lists and Universal Event Tracking (UET) tags across multiple manager accounts.

The arlo pro 3 floodlight camera also has a siren that you can activate from the app, but it only comes with an 80 decibel alarm that is a little on the quiet side. This may not deter a trespasser as loudly as some of its competitors, but it should still wake up your neighbors when something is going on in your yard.
