Arlo - 3 Cameras

Arlo – 3 Cameras

Arlo has been named among the best wireless cameras several years running, and is known for their sharp, super HD resolution, easy installation, reliable motion detection, and sleek, modern design. It’s also known for leading the market of battery-powered security cameras.

In my full hands-on Arlo review, I was able to get down to the finer details of these well-made cameras, testing the features and tech. But today, I have slightly more pressing business to cover: the business of the second Prime Day of 2022.

Of course, the first Prime Day, which was held on July 12 and 13, is over. The second one, however, dubbed the Prime Day Early Access Sale, is in full swing (October 11-12). And just like the previous Prime Day, it’s a two-day event full of deals on lots of security equipment.

Prime Day happens to be an ideal time to buy an Arlo camera, so today, we’ll talk about how you can save money on Amazon’s special shopping event. Here’s what we know so far.

Prime Day Early Access Deals: Arlo

It comes as no surprise to see Arlo offer lots of deals you shouldn’t miss. There are deals on Arlo cameras for new users, as well as accessories for those with existing Arlo cameras.

So far, one of the best deals we’ve found was on the Arlo Ultra 2, the most advanced wire-free camera from Arlo with a 4K HDR resolution and an integrated spotlight. It’s usually pretty expensive at $299.99, but right now, you can get one Arlo Ultra 2 for just $246.99. It’s still up there in terms of price, but $50 is a good discount for a camera like it.

Here are other deals we found:

  • Save 28 percent with the Arlo Essential Indoor Camera, from $99.99 down to $71.99.
  • Get an Arlo Pro 4 for $143.99 (28 percent off).
  • Get a two-pack Arlo Pro 4 bundle for $319.99, a $60 savings.
  • Save 31 percent with the Arlo Essential Spotlight Cameras, for a total price of $89.99 (originally $129.99).
  • Get a two-pack Arlo Ultra 2 with an Arlo Smart Hub for $474.99, $120 off the regular price.
  • Get $50 off the Arlo Pro 3 Floodlight Camera’s price to slash the price down to $199.

In addition, you can save anywhere between 10 and 20 percent on Arlo accessories, including the following.

  • Upgraded Solar Panel Charger for Arlo Pro 4, Pro 3, Ultra, and Ultra 2
  • Upgraded Replacement Battery for Arlo Pro 4, Pro 3, Ultra, and Ultra 2
  • Security Wall Mount for all Arlo outdoor cameras
  • Flexible Twist Mount for Arlo Pro, Ultra, Go, and Baby models
  • 30 ft. Magnetic Charging Cable with Adapter for Arlo Pro 4 and Ultra 2

Arlo: Past Prime Day Deals

A former partner of Netgear, Arlo has been flying solo since 2018. The California-based brand has eight cameras available, with some models recording in 2K and even 4K video resolutions. Arlo also makes a doorbell camera, a floodlight camera, and a baby monitor camera.

Though they’re always expanding and evolving their inventory, one constant I’ve found with Arlo is that they’ve always seemed to have a few really good deals for Prime Day. Here are a few Arlo deals I’ve spotted from their previous Prime Day participations.

  • During the July 2022 Prime Day event, the Arlo Essential Indoor was the cheapest Arlo camera on sale. From $99, its price dropped to $79, a 20 percent savings.
  • In the same event, multi-camera bundles stole the show, with the three-camera Arlo Essential Spotlight bundle retailing for just $249.99. That’s about $80 for each camera that originally costs $130.
  • In 2021, Arlo gave customers $80 off on the Arlo Pro 2, 3 and 4, the Arlo Essential Spotlight and the Arlo Video Doorbell.
  • Also in 2020, Amazon rolled out a nice two-for-one deal on an Arlo Ultra camera and Smart Hub system plus an Arlo Video Doorbell for $659, a savings of $168 off retail.
  • In 2019, a renewed (aka refurbished) Arlo Pro camera was priced on Amazon at 53 percent off retail for Prime Day.3
  • In 2017, Amazon offered a $74 Prime Day discount off an Echo Dot speaker + Arlo security camera bundle.

Arlo Camera Pricing and Packages

Arlo is a great manufacturer of security products, but the drawback is you’re going to have to pay for the quality.

You might spend more than, say, a package of Swann security cameras with easy installation and an NVR; however, you won’t get Arlo’s equipment quality and motion detection features in those Swann cameras, either. Just something to keep in mind, as I’ve always found you do get what you pay for in this industry.

Final Thoughts on Arlo Prime Day Discounts

One of my favorite characteristics of Arlo cameras is their “smart” look. I’ve long been a fan of their modern, sleek design, and in my experience with their cameras, they tend to outpace the competition in equipment quality, functionality, value, and ease of use.

Just like in previous Prime Days, Arlo started the Early Access Sale strong. And that’s good news, because as I mentioned earlier, Arlo cameras aren’t cheap. If you’re looking to save money on an Arlo camera, Prime Day October is simply one of your best bets.
