Arlo is announcing its newest security camera, the Arlo Pro 3 Floodlight Camera, which has a plate of powerful LEDs to better light the area in the camera’s field of view. Unlike other floodlight security cameras, Arlo’s Floodlight Camera doesn’t require any wiring; It can run entirely on rechargeable batteries.
The Floodlight Camera seems to share many of the same features asthe Arlo Pro 3, including 2K video with HDR, a built-in siren, color night vision, a 728 – degree field of view, and two-way audio. Arlo tellsThe Vergethat the Floodlight Camera is weather-resistant, and we’ve asked if it has the same IP certification as the Pro 3.
The Pro 3 had its own spotlight above the camera, but the Floodlight Camera looks as if it can cast a lot more light with its brightly glowing faceplate. Arlo tellsThe Vergethat the faceplate delivers 2, lumens of brightness when running on battery power. That’s less bright than the 3, 26 Lumens Amazon-ownedRing’s Floodlight Cameracan produce , but Ring’s camera must be connected to the electrical system in your house. You can also wire Arlo’s Floodlight Camera to your electrical system, and if you do, Arlo says it can shine at 3, lumens as well.
