Want to setup a home security camera but you’re intimidated by the potential wiring of it? If you’re the sort that does not like to get too technical nor do you want to pay an electrician to help you figure it out, Arlo has you covered as the company has announced a couple of new Essential wireless security cameras.
This comes in the form of the Essential XL Spotlight and the Essential Camera, both of which are powered by batteries which means that all you need to do is mount them on a surface, connect them to your home network, and you’re good to go. The former will offer a battery life of up to 12 months, while the latter should be good for 6 months.
With the Essential XL Spotlight, it will come with an integrated spotlight (hence its name), two-way audio, motion detection, and a built-in siren. It can also record 1080p videos with a 130-degree field of view along with color night vision. It is also weather resistant which makes it perfect for the outdoors.
As for the Essential Camera, it comes with pretty much the same features as the Essential XL Spotlight, just minus the spotlight feature. The Essential XL Spotlight will be priced at $150 while the Essential Camera will retail for $100, with the former being available for order today, while the latter will be available this holiday season.
