Its key USP is a larger battery for up to 12 months between charges. I don’t have to point out that that depends on the number of activations. It costs US$149.99 – $20 more than the Essential version.
It has the same basic specs as the Essential which scores 4.3/5 – not bad for a 1080p security camera. Like the other Essential line, it does not need a dedicated Arlo smart hub and can join to home Wi-Fi as well. All you need is the Arlo app.
Features of the Arlo Essential XL Spotlight Camera (US$149.99) include:
Extended Battery Life: One year of battery life on one charge, perfect for high traffic locations or areas that are difficult to reach so you can charge less frequently
Integrated Spotlight: Spotlight to illuminate the area of activity; spotlight can be motion-activated or manually turned on
2-Way Audio: Hear and speak to visitors
Built-in Siren: Trigger it automatically or manually
Colour Night Vision: See colour even at night thanks to an integrated spotlight
Full High Definition Camera: Capture clear details in up to 1080p
Weather-Resistant: Use it indoors or outdoors
