This Is The Arlo Pro 3

Arlo pre-announced the Arlo Pro 3 on Twitter this week… without actually naming it. So, as I’m wont to do, I went ahead and tracked it down. While, at first glance, it looks a whole lot like the Arlo Ultra, there are some distinct differences:

Unsubstantiated rumors suggest the Pro 3 will see a resolution bump to 2K, along with a brighter LED than Ultra and improved, possibly full duplex audio. Should we see those higher resolutions, I could imagine a realignment of the non-Pro and Pro models to better differentiate the tiers. For example, perhaps the Pro will increase to 1080p. As to Apple HomeKit support, it appears the Pro 3 will ship with the same basestation as the Ultra… which is still awaiting integration. The good news is that all will be revealed in just a few short days.

UDAPTE: Twitter crowdsourcing has panned out, thanks to to itson98888843 who uncovered an Australian merchant’s product page. 2K video resolution is confirmed and “superior” two-way audio gets a shout out above. Field of view is a nice 160 degrees, but down form the Ultra’s 180, and likely why the lens looks less bulbous.

  1. So question whether these will be backward compatible with Arlo Pro2 and have access to the “free” 7-day video access.

    Or whether they will be in the “Ultra” category and require the purchase of a plan for most features
