A smart solution for the home, which however assumes that you already have the Arlo video camera system.
Arlo Audio Doorbell represents a new generation of products, which allows you to add a smart bell to your home.
It works in combination with Arlo Chime , the bell that can be installed anywhere in the house, as long as there is an electrical socket to be used.
Arlo Audio Doorbell is not a real alternative to the other smart bells sold by Nest or Ring , because it assumes that you have an Arlo room in your home , of which it represents a real accessory to complete the system.
Let me explain better, because this is one of the days in which to be understood is more complicated: Nest and Ring have put on the market very efficient smart solutions, which include a bell connected to the internet, equipped with a video camera.
When someone rings at the door, the video camera is also activated: hundreds of kilometers away, you are able to see who bothers you, in some cases even with facial recognition.
How Arlo Audio Doorbell works
The main difference of Arlo Audio Doorbell is that it is not equipped with video cameras, because it works in conjunction with Arlo Pro , Arlo Pro 2 ; it should in fact be kept in mind that Arlo Audio Doorbell only works if an Arlo base station is used.
The configuration is very simple, just follow the instructions in the Arlo app, which simplifies your use.
Installation is very simple because the power supply works with batteries and there is no need for power cables, which are needed to install the Nest bell .
When Audio Doorbell is installed together with an Arlo camera, the image coming from the camera is also notified on your smartphone.
Arlo Chime carries the bell everywhere
If you prefer a classic doorbell in addition to the notification on smartphones, Arlo Chime comes into play, which simply needs to be plugged into a socket and then paired to the system through the app.
