The Latest and Greatest Arlo Security Camera System
The Arlo Ultra is Arlo’s newest wireless security camera that works both indoors and outdoors. It can be set up anywhere using a magnetic mount or a hardwired mount for a more sturdy installation. The Arlo Ultra security camera includes an Arlo Ultra SmartHub to connect multiple Ultra cameras and enable camera features using one central connection. It also includes a magnetic charging cable to quickly recharge your camera’s battery.
The Ultra camera uses 4K high definition resolution (HDR) image quality for sharp, clear footage. Arlo’s new and improved camera quality includes a close-up zoom and a 180-degree field of vision view to see your home’s vicinity far beyond the front door. It includes two microphones with noise cancellation for crystal clear two-way audio and a built-in siren that’s automatically triggered when motion is detected.
When used outdoors, this Arlo security camera shines a built-in spotlight when motion is detected. It also includes enhanced night vision to see the camera footage in color – whereas most security cameras with night vision only show video in black and white. This Arlo security camera system is weatherproof to withstand rain, extreme heat and moisture. The Arlo Ultra works with Apple Watch, Google Home Hub, Amazon Alexa and the Arlo mobile app for remote or hands-free control.

Arlo Security Camera FAQs
Are Arlo security camera systems weatherproof?
Only the Wireless Arlo, Arlo Ultra, Pro 2 and Arlo Go cameras are designed to withstand rain and extreme weather conditions. The Arlo Pro 2 functions normally up to 104-degrees Fahrenheit, while the Wireless Arlo can last up to 122-degrees Fahrenheit. Keep in mind that Arlo camera power adapters are not weatherproof and should be stored in dry, room-temperature conditions.
Are Arlo security cameras Bluetooth-enabled?
Arlo security camera systems are Wi-Fi-enabled only. The Wireless Arlo, Arlo Ultra and Arlo Pro 2 only work when connected to your base station and Wi-Fi network. However, the Arlo Go connects to your wireless mobile network provider. When setting up your Arlo camera, you’ll need a mobile device, the Arlo mobile app, Wi-Fi connection, internet router and an ethernet port for your Arlo security camera system base station.
How far does my Arlo security camera system detect motion range?
The motion detection range will depend on the camera. Most Arlo security cameras can detect motion up to 23 feet. Remember that you can adjust the motion detection sensitivity using the Arlo app or web portal to trigger how sensitive the camera is to any movement within range.
