The mysterious Arlo Gen 5 discovered last month has been revealed as the Arlo Ultra. And, based on an early 2019 release date, missed an anticipated holiday launch. Not only has Arlo’s styling been enhanced, the Ultra is more powerful on all fronts — with 4K video, wider field of view, dual microphones, and a built-in spotlight. However, all this wire-free surveillance goodness comes at a cost… in the range of $250-300/camera. Ouch?
I’ve long been a proponent of the battery-powered Arlo… but the market has evolved and I’m currently giving Ring a shot. Having said that, being a gadget flipper, I’ll certainly fire up Arlo once again when the timeline scrubbing app update is released.
