Good concept from netgear, just poor promises

The Arlo Basic plan gives you access to motion- and audio-triggered recordings from the past 7 days for free. And the plan never expires!

Is Arlo compatible with VueZone products?
The Arlo system (Arlo Wire-Free and Arlo Q) is a completely new camera system and is not VueZone compatible.

NETGEAR appreciates its loyal VueZone Home Monitoring system customers and developed Arlo based on the valuable feedback from these customers. Although we performed extensive research in an effort to pursue compatibility between Arlo and VueZone, it was determined that the infrastructure of the VueZone platform could not support the technology that will be the future of the Arlo Smart Home Security System.
Many usere felt ripped off:

I've had VueZone for several years, I just used it to watch my pets when I was at work.
Recently, my husband died and someone broke into my house right after he died and stole a bunch of stuff.
I bought four more VueZone cameras and upgraded my system. I was really happy, and then started getting
emails saying that NG was phasing out/getting rid of VueZone and I'd have to upgrade to Arlo. I was eventually
sent a special offer to get Arlo for $229 as an existing VueZone customer. They said when I bought Arlo, my
VueZone system would expire 21 days later. I took this to mean that VueZone would no longer exist, period.
Not just for me, but for anyone. WRONG!! Evidently, VueZone still exists and I just got roped into buying Arlo
for $229 that I do not have (I am a widow, down to ONE income! This could not have come at a worse time!!).
When I wrote to Netgear to complain that I have five VueZone cameras that worked perfectly well, they said
basically "sucks to be you" and thanks for upgrading to Arlo. Now, I am stuck with five brand-new VueZone
cameras; a cancelled VueZone system/account; and a VueZone router which is no good to anyone. Why can't
we use the VueZone cameras with the Arlo system? That is just insane. They are almost the same exact
camera!!!! They even take the same battery and have the same on-off switches! I'm so pissed off. I am ready
to start a Class Action suit against NetGear. This is total bait and switch. My VueZone system was still fully
functioning and would have continued to function until they cut everyone off completely (which apparently is
coming up some time in the future, but it ain't right now!!). One very disappointed customer.
So maybe the PLAN never expires but the hardware may only be supported for a few years until they change the name again.

How dare a company come out with a new product! Absolutely despicable. Netgear should stick to producing 56k modems.

PS: these are already outdated. They are still supported but there is a newer improved version out.

Honestly if you get 2 years of use out of this you get your month's worth of security already IMO

Arlo Pro is better but cost way more lol

The problem for many of us was that we bought the system with the promise of long term support and then a few months later they came out with the new incompatible version.

I've several FOSCAMs of various vintages, even the 10 year old one still works.

Do not use with expectation of security. These often fail to pick up motion accurately. See amz reviews before buying

I have had these cameras for about a year and they are absolutely horrible. Customer service is even worse paid about $500 for my system and after 5 months of them making me uninstall and reinstall the cameras they finally admitted to a faulty base station. Their solution was to send me a refurbished unit after I had just spent $500 for a brand new one. You will not speak to anyone in the US whatsoever for tech support and they have the technological understanding and authority of a 2 year old at day care. Thanks to Best Buy I returned them and paid a little more for the new system with the two way voice and the better motion sensors. This model is completely worthless for home security.

Is there any similar alternatives (wireless, motion battery operated)? Saw one of these in operation recently and they seem alright for what it does.

Wired cameras was the best option but didn't want to deal with the wiring. Ring stick up cams were the next option but the $30/yr subscription for each cameras x 4 cameras and 1 doorbell = $150/year. Nest was after that but was completely wired at $200 per camera. Arlo was the best solution for wireless and 7 days free cloud recording. Figured with the Best Buy geek squad warranty if anything happens again can just go in and exchange them rather then deal with netgear/arlo support team. 2 days using them now working great - rechargeable batteries, 2 way audio, great picture, and MUCH better motion sensor. Also mount attachment is now in the back rather than underneath so much less awkward to point in direction needed. Figured with geek squad warranty if they don't work out again can just return them and go back to wired.

Depends on a lot of variables. However having these I will make a recommendation. 2 sets of Rechargeable batteries is the only way to go. Carry on. Great cameras if you do that.

I have two of these cameras. They worked fine for around two months but then both camera's videos turned pink. Called Arlo and they just said "pop out the batteries and put them back in" they'll still pink and they won't answer my emails. Hmm
