Arlo Q 1080p HD Security Camera with Audio (VMC3040) is a perfect camera for monitoring your home. It has everything you need to be set up for monitoring is a few simple steps and set up takes just minutes. The Arlo Q HD Security Camera lets you see and hear everything in super 1080p HD detail. Listen in and talk to anyone who’s there. Use night vision, motion alerts, and free cloud video recording to make sure you never miss a moment when you're away from home. Nothing says peace of mind like being able to see what is going on in your home while you are not there, whether you are are work, out for the evening, or away on vacation. Arlo Q has you covered.
The Arlo Q HD Security Camera uses free app interfaces so you can be connected to your iOS or Android device, as well as through a browser. It detects motion up to 15 feet away, which is pretty incredible (I can even see my kids sneaking into the pantry if I want to). It will send you an email alert and push notifications to your phone (if you want to set those up) when it detects motion.
Some of the key features of the Arlo Q HD Security Camera include:
- 1080p HD 30 fps
- 2-Way Audio
- Night Vision (850 nm LEDs: illuminates up to 25 feet)
- Motion & Sound Alerts
- Free Cloud Recording for 7 days worth of recording
- 24/7 Cloud Recording
- Full-color CMOS and 8x digital zoom imaging
- 130° field of view
From the app and cloud, you can watch live or replay recorded footage, which means you can see what's happening in your home real time or review recordings. If you're away, you could use the speaker function to chat with your kids or help with homework. I suppose that feature could get creepy if you misuse it, but it sure would keep your kids in line. I love that it can be set on a countertop surface or mounted to a wall to save space and be out of the way, depending on your preference and need.
