Lowest price on Amazon for the 2 camera kit. Still a good option for those that don't want to pay monthly fees but wants cloud functionality.

In stock July 7.

These are not very reliable. Turn off with no notification needing restart. Delays like crazy.

There are pro and cons of those two systems, people will have to do research and decide for themselves. For my use case, free cloud storage and pre-recording are the reasons I went with Arlo.

Mine have been great. Not a security system by any means, but if you want an affordable solution to monitor your home, these are great.

Got turned off them due to recent server issues causing downtime. Cloud recording as well as local would be nice too but costs extra with Eufy.

Not really sure if there is a system that doesn't have flaws though. Almost bought a Reolink Argus 2 system but then found out they have poor motion detection range. I don't want to pay a monthly subscriltion so ring is out. And my blink xt got attacked by wild animals and is a pain to save clips.

Great got this as back up/extra batteries and extra charger for my Arlo Pro 2s. I also use them as Samsung Smartthings motion sensors to turn on my stairs light. Plus activated Chase Freedom card now has 5% cash back for Amazon.

As someone who has this exact set for the past two months, I regret buying them. The video quality is not true 1080p. All recorded video is sent to Arlo servers and when you try to play back, the quality is severely degraded. Also there is a delay when trying to live stream.

If I were to say one good thing about it, the 3-second pre-recording when plugged into a constant power source works very well. But what good is it if the video quality is poor?

My advice to others new in security cams, save your money and look at other cameras.

Eufy all the way.

no free cloud storage is good if what you are recording is garbage quality. Eufy resolved that issue with local recording.
