This year’s Prime Day has already seen countless fantastic deals, but this pair of Arlo deals has to be one of my personal favourites. The Arlo Video Doorbell is already my favorite moment doorbell on the market — and the one I use on a daily basis — and it’s only $110 with that kind of Prime Day offer. That would be a savings of $40 over the typical cost. Arlo is tossing you an Echo Show 5 (2nd Gen) for your viewing pleasure on top of a wonderful offer. That product is generally $85 on its own, so you’re saving $125 by purchasing the bundle that includes both of these products. Because this is a wired video doorbell, double-check that you have all of the necessary power connections before purchasing.
Because this is a wired video doorbell, double-check that you have all of the necessary power connections before purchasing. Most existing doorbells come with the necessary power source, so if you have that, you’re probably fine. What is it about the Arlo Video Doorbell that makes it so appealing? The sophisticated detection capabilities given by an Arlo Smart subscription are without a doubt my favourite feature. By paying $3 a month for that plan, the doorbell will be able to differentiate between people, animals, vehicles, and shipments, allowing you to customise your notifications to your specific needs.
If you live near a busy road and are often harassed by notifications about passing cars, simply switch off vehicle notifications and you will no longer be annoyed. If, on the other hand, you merely want to be warned if someone knocks on your door unexpectedly, animated thumbnails and concise descriptions make it simple to understand what’s going on directly in your notification shade. Through which, without having to click anything, display and tell you exactly what’s at your door. If that wasn’t enough, Arlo’s one-touch quick responses give him a voice that helps you answer your door less – a terrific feature for when you’re stuck in a meeting, away from home, or have a lot of solicitors knocking on your door.
If you get shipments on a regular basis, the messages can be used to ask your carrier to hold tight for a minute while you arrive at the door. The included Echo Show 5 (2nd Gen) is a terrific smart display that’s powered by Alexa, so you can see who’s at the door as soon as you push the doorbell button. Video may be scheduled to play automatically on the Echo Show 5, or you can just ask Alexa to play the doorbell footage at any time. Similarly, if you need security cameras to cover the whole of your house, Arlo Essential cameras offer a wire-free experience that doesn’t require a hub.
