NETGEAR Introduces Arlo Q, New “Genius” Camera That Raises the Smart Home Security Bar with 1080p HD Video and Two-Way Audio

Consumers can now enjoy advanced 1080p HD video, two-way audio, night
vision capabilities, and free 7-day video cloud storage anytime, anywhere

a global networking company that delivers innovative products to
consumers, businesses and service providers, today introduced Arlo™ Q
1080p HD Security Camera with Audio (VMC3040)
, the newest member of
the award-winning Arlo IP camera family (
With brilliantly detailed 1080p high-definition video and two-way
communication, Arlo Q gives smart home security its biggest IQ boost yet.

Arlo Q delivers eye-popping HD clarity that reveals every detail —even
in total darkness— with a 4-megapixel-image sensor and built-in night
vision. Each Arlo Q camera also offers two-way audio so you can listen
in on any room in the house, from the nursery to the family room, talk
with anyone there, and receive alerts on iOS and Android™ devices when
sounds are detected. With Arlo Q, it’s easy to help with homework, kick
the dog off the couch, or monitor the baby from across town or around
the world. And an industry-leading seven days of free video cloud
storage makes sure your most important motion-triggered recordings are
automatically saved for later viewing.

Designed to bring ultimate simplicity to smart home security, each
AC-powered Arlo Q camera easily connects directly to any existing WiFi
network. In just a few minutes, you can customize sound or motion
alerts, access live video feeds, and watch previously recorded videos.
From monitoring the front door to keeping an eye —and ear— on pets,
kids, elderly parents, and more, Arlo Q makes sure you’ll never again
wonder what’s happening at your home or business or miss a single second
when something does.

“With Arlo Q, our goal is to deliver an incredible end-to-end experience
that leaves you feeling as though you are right there in your home, even
though you may be a world away,” said Pat Collins, vice president of
smart home products at NETGEAR. “In addition to Arlo Q’s amazing HD
video and audio quality, we are excited to be adding a new set of
powerful software features to the Arlo platform, including motion zones,
continuous video recording, and digital zoom, that will even further
enhance the Arlo experience. And by combining Arlo Q with our 100%
wire-free cameras, we now provide you with the only solution on the
market that easily covers every angle of your home or business – indoors
and outdoors, day and night, all from the same app.”

Using a 130-degree wide-angle lens, Arlo Q can see entire rooms from
corner to corner. Multiple mounting options —desktop, magnetic, or wall
mounts— mean you can place your cameras wherever they’re needed.

To enable seamless video streaming and uninterrupted cloud recording,
Arlo Q uses dual band WiFi for maximum wireless range and performance
without interference. Fast access to all your cameras —whether Arlo Q or
Arlo Wire-Free— is provided by the free Arlo app, which also puts your
library of previously recorded videos in your pocket.

With Arlo Q’s free basic video cloud storage plan, both motion- and
sound-triggered videos are always stored in the cloud for seven days at
no cost to customers, a level of service unequaled in the industry. Also
available for an additional fee is Arlo Q’s optional Continuous Video
Recording plan (CVR plan), which continuously records everything your
cameras see 24/7 and securely stores this non-stop video feed in the
cloud. You can rewind any camera to any point in time and track activity
around the clock at your convenience.

Designed with infinite flexibility in mind, Arlo Q also gives you
unprecedented control over the sound and motion alerts you receive.
Create activity zones and alert times tailored to your specific
lifestyle and use Arlo Q’s customizable smart detection abilities to
minimize false alarms caused by lighting changes, natural background
movement, and normal ambient sounds.

“Arlo Q packages the elements that consumers value for home security
into a well-designed product,” said Stuart Sikes, president of Parks
Associates, a market research and consulting company specializing in
emerging consumer technology products and services. “Arlo Q addresses
consumer desire for visual quality with enhanced audio and cloud
capabilities. The Arlo platform fuels the growing do-it-yourself smart
home security market.”

According to recent research from Parks Associates, approximately 14
percent of U.S. broadband households have expressed an intention to
purchase a networked security camera.
