The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free
With my youngest of my children finally out of the house and away at college, I find myself in unchartered territory with not only am I home alone, but now that I’m also retired, I’m home alone a lot. Living between a convenience store and a super playground, sometimes I have to admit it can be a bit unnerving to hear an unknown knock on the door. Add in the fact that the holidays are upon us, online shopping has begun and I now find myself traveling all over, I needed a reliable way to monitor things back home no matter where I was-be it in the kitchen or on the other side of the country. I always thought that a home security system was out of reach, especially now that I have to make those retirement dollars stretch but luckily for me it was Best Buy to the rescue with their Arlo By Netgear four camera security system which enables users like myself to safeguard their home or even their business with reliable security cameras.
I am absolutely no expert in anything remotely electronic but I have to say this was so easy to install, that even someone with no electronics background like myself had it up and ready to go in under an hour. Because it comes equipped with 4 cameras, I was able to pick the places where I felt needed maybe just a little bit more security, including one inside my house downstairs to alleviate all the worries that come when you hear a bump in the middle of the night and you’re upstairs all alone.
With the easy to mount outside cameras, now all always know when a package has been left on the porch no matter where I am or what I’m doing. The best part it that all of the outdoor cameras come with a swivel mount and the indoor ones are easily attached with simple magnetic mounts. Add in the extra bonus that they are all completely wire free and I was up and monitoring in no time at all.
The system comes with an easy to use Arlo app that allows you to change the setting at any time. I can decide if I want to be notified from just one camera, or several if motion is detected and even adjust the sensitivy so that with winter approaching I don’t necessarily have to be alerted each time the leaves are blowing in the wind or I can turn it off when trick-or-treaters come to the door. An extra bonus, think of what fun it will be when Santa comes to my front door on Christmas Eve to see him actually standing there all thanks to the app on my phone.
