When it comes to smart home security systems, there are many options to choose from. This ranges from smart home security cameras, motion sensors, doorbells, alarm systems, and more, and Netgear has recently announced a new addition to the already-growing list in the form of a smart home security light for outdoors.

Dubbed the Arlo Outdoor Smart Home Security Light, the name pretty much tells you what it does. This is a spotlight that you would place outside your home where you would typically place such a device. However it is smarter than your regular spotlight because it is motion-activated, can be scheduled, and will work with digital assistants like Amazon Alexa and also IFTTT. There is even a red light mode which should hopefully scare away any unwanted visitors.

Unfortunately the light does not come with a built-in camera, which means that if you wanted visuals you will have to supplement it with a separate camera, such as Netgear’s Arlo security cameras. As for pricing, Netgear has chosen to remain mum on how much the light will cost for now, except that it will be released in the first half of 2018. There will also be a solar panel accessory that will be sold separately if you’d rather not have to change the batteries every now and then.
