    NETGEAR’s update to its Arlo Pro security camera gets a few new features added, as well several standard capabilities found in other cameras. New stuff first…

    First, Arlo Pro 2 is a 1080p high-definition camera, touted to produce clearer pictures with its 130-degree field of view, providing even more detail when zoomed in from the Arlo app in day, or thanks to night vision, in the dark.

    Next, with a separately available Arlo Solar Panel, the Arlo Pro 2 uses rechargeable batteries to power itself with energy provided by the sun. Given that the Arlo Pro 2 is weather-resistant, having the capability to sit outside and get power from the sun adds a degree of hands-off maintenance and interesting options for where the Arlo Pro 2 can go.

    Lastly, the Arlo Pro 2 gets support for Amazon Alexa, providing a video feed for the Echo Show and FireTV connected televisions via Arlo Skill for Amazon Alexa voice commands.

    Arlo Pro 2 also includes two-way communication via its built-in speaker and microphone, a siren/alarm that can be triggered from the app or through motion or audio detection, and rolling seven days of cloud storage for the life of the product (up to five cameras).

    Other features listed are a Look Back pre-recording function that creates a three second clip of what happened before a triggered event occurred, and motion activity zones that let customers focus their cameras on specific areas or “zones”, a feature that takes advantage of motion detection for critical areas such as entrances.

    Available now, the Arlo Pro 2 costs $219.99 for a single camera, or $479.99 for a two-camera system with base station. Additional Arlo accessories also available include the charging station ($59.99), rechargeable battery ($49.99), protective skins ($29.99), and solar panel ($79.99).
