GadgetGuy’s take

Congratulations to Arlo on two fronts. The new Essential series fills the need for Arlo quality without requiring an Arlo Smart Hub (although they can use it too). It also enables Arlo to bring a better-quality product to market at a more affordable price.

Secondly, Arlo’s Privacy as a Pledge is unmatched by any security camera maker – your data is safe with Arlo and will never be sold.
