Arlo is a well known brand when it comes to security cameras. The company’s Ultra, Pro and Essentials cameras offer a range of cutting edge features and connect to your home network via Wi-Fi. However, what happens when you want to keep an eye on things but you don’t have Wi-Fi coverage? This is where Arlo’s latest Go 2 4G comes in. Arlo’s latest camera otherwise looks and operates like the rest of the range, only now it features with both Wi-Fi and 4G connectivity. This means it can happily connect via Wi-Fi and switch over to 4G connectivity if there’s an outage. However, the real benefit is the mobility that 4G brings. For example, you could put the Go 2 4G on the edge of a large property that doesn’t have Wi-Fi coverage. Arlo says that the camera suits many scenarios, such as on building sites for keeping an eye on tools and materials, on boats, RVs, in garages, holiday homes, on rural properties and much more.
The Go 2 4G comes with a SIM slot for inserting a card from a telco of your choice. And, as the camera is weatherproof, you don’t need to worry about rain, shine or snow. The camera has an extended case to house a larger rechargeable battery but many will want to connect it to Arlo’s solar panel accessory that will keep it charged up without power cables.
You don’t need to worry about where your Arlo is either, should you have a number of cameras on your property, thanks to GPS location tracking. There’s also an option to be notified if your camera is moved outside of a set location, such as someone wanting to pinch it.
Here’s a quick summary of the Go 2 4G’s features:
