Arlo's latest video doorbell had a rough start, with missing support for some must-have features, but it has improved quite a bit since its initial release. Now you can get the Arlo Video Doorbell AVD1001 for just $109.99, a discount of $40 from the original MSRP (and $39 below the current Amazon price).
Arlo is one of the premier brands when it comes to home security cameras. It released an updated second-gen version of its popular Ultra security cameras earlier this month, but there wasn't a whole lot of improvement when compared to the original. And today, Woot is selling refurbished Arlo Ultra systems starting at just $149 for a single camera add-on.

Doorbells are a necessary nuisance in our lives, but they're also among one of the best household features to go "smart" in years. Video doorbells have been around for ages, but cloud-connected smart video doorbells are pretty much a revelation if you've never experienced one. You'll know every time someone is at the door, be able to check for packages without getting up from your couch, and avoid pesky door-to-door solicitors (when we have those again). Arlo, Nest, and Ring all have compelling options, but there's one we think is the best choice for most people, especially if you're using an Android phone and a Google-powered smart display like the Nest Hub.
When it comes to monitoring your home security, Arlo cameras are some of the best out there. The Arlo Ultra 2 may have just been released, but the original Arlo Ultra is still a solid option. The camera had a bit of a rocky release in 2018, but since then the company has ironed out the launch issues. Right now you can get an Arlo Ultra kit with the hub and two cameras for $450 at Amazon and Best Buy.
The Arlo Pro 2 may be two years old, but it's still one of the better wireless camera options out there. We called it the best wireless camera in our 2018 review, noting its stellar battery life in particular. Last week we shared a great deal at Amazon where you could pick up a 2-camera kit for $200, but if you've already got Arlo's base station and just want another camera or two, you can now pick up discounted add-on Arlo Pro 2 cams for just $93 each.
Arlo has been making some of the best home security products on the market for a while now. Just a few weeks back we saw the launch of the budget-oriented Essential Spotlight camera, but users looking for higher-end surveillance could always turn to last year's Arlo Ultra. Now that model is getting a few tweaks, as Arlo announces the Ultra 2, a mildly refreshed edition of its 4K-capable camera.
It's important to make sure your home is secure, but that can prove costly. Arlo is one of the better choices these days when it comes to wireless cameras, but its models often come in on the expensive side. We called the Arlo 2 Pro the best wireless camera you could buy back in 2018, and right now, Amazon has a two-camera kit with the Arlo 2 Pro on sale for just $199.
The Alro Ultra line of outdoor cameras was first released last year, and it's still one of the best options for monitoring the outside of your home in crystal-clear 4K quality. Now you can get a full two-camera system for $399.99 ($300 off MSRP), or a single add-on camera for just $170 ($130 off MSRP).
For all of the genuinely useful smart-home products Arlo offers, sometimes it feels like the company's got a bit of a blind spot when it comes to combining them. Cameras have always been its bread and butter, but when Arlo introduced its first doorbell in 2018, it was audio-only — we'd have to wait another year for the Video Doorbell. And while Arlo's had its wireless Smart Light for years, it's only now that the company is taking one of its lauded cameras and integrating it with an extra-bright exterior light: the Arlo Pro 3 Floodlight.
There are many, many options for home security cameras, but most of those require a power outlet. Arlo is one of the most prominent purveyors of battery-powered cameras, and it has a new one to talk about today. The Essential Spotlight borrows some features from Arlo's more expensive cameras, but it sticks with 1080p resolution. It'll cost just $129, and unlike most of Arlo's cameras, it doesn't require a dedicated wireless hub.
