To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
4.0 out of 5 starsGood value but older tech starting to show

Great value as an add on camera but they’re starting to show their age with the 720p resolution. Great for detecting people but you can’t read logos on shirts etc at any distance so will be harder to ID intruders.
Needs to have timestamps on the videos. While there is metadata and epoch time is the name of the file, it is ridiculous that there is no date/time stamp on the actual video. It's in the cloud but that does you no good once you download a video for long term storage. Fix this Arlo. It's been a problem for years.
After struggling for a couple of hours, I gave up and shipped the camera back. The unit would not stay powered on. For the few seconds it did, the recording would freeze. It consumed 25% of the battery in less than an hour. Extremely disappointing.
