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.

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 Prime Day 2021. That’s right: Amazon Prime Day1 is coming, and it happens to be an ideal time to buy an Arlo home security camera or package for your home.

FYI: Buying lots of home security equipment at once can be overwhelming. Use our handy home security comparison tool before you buy to figure out what kind of system you really need.

Specifically, let’s talk about how you can save money on Arlo cameras on Amazon’s biggest shopping event of the year, which is now slated for June 21-22, 2021. Here’s what we know so far:

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 earlier years:

  • In 2020, Prime members enjoyed a 25 percent discount on the Arlo Pro 3 two-camera home security system for Prime Day,2 from the retail price of $399.99 to $299.99.
  • 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

With cameras starting at $99 for Arlo Essential, Arlo is sold commonly in package form, with two-, three-, or five-camera kits tied to an Arlo SmartHub. Between equipment costs and any extras you might add in for storage and monitoring, you’ll likely spend hundreds on an Arlo system.

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.

If past Prime Day events are any indication, Arlo cameras are sure to make a strong showing on Amazon’s biggest shopping event of the year. 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 is simply your best bet.
