    Arlo Pro vs. Nest vs. Smartcam, December 27, 2016

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    I’m a longtime Dropcam/Nest and Samsung Smartcam user. I had some locations outside far from power outlets where I wanted surveillance, purchased and Arlo Pro system for this coverage. I have to say, after a few weeks of use I prefer the Arlo Pro to my Nest and Samsung camera systems. The image quality is slightly poorer, but the functionality is easier, there is free cloud recording, the app interface is cleaner, and the wireless feature means I can place these in spots the others can’t go.

    ** Ease of Use **
    Nest: 9.0/10. Works out of the box, recent app update lets you scroll through video feed in time-lapse fashion. It’s like the Apple-version of camera systems, even your grandparents can set it up and use it.
    Samsung: 7.5/10. If Nest is the Apple version, Samsung is the Android. It’s a little bit better of a camera, but it’s not as easy to setup and the app requires multiple logins to access the video feed, and doesn’t have single Touch ID access like Nest or Arlo. So even though my phone saves the first password, I always have to manually type another password to view the feed. Otherwise the app is straightforward, and setup is about average on the easy scale.
    Arlo Pro: 9.0/10. Like the Nest, this works out of the box and your grandparents could set it up. The app is self-explanatory and easy to navigate. A small hiccup in that a recent app update seemed to wipe camera settings, but afterward everything else has been fine.

    ** Cloud Recording **
    Nest: 2/10. $100 per year for 1 camera for 7 days of stored video; each add’l camera is $50/year. (4 cameras = $250/year for cloud). Because Nest cams run 24/7, they will constantly use your home’s internet connection bandwidth; the more cameras you have, the more of your bandwidth they chew up. From personal experience I will say the cost doesn’t sound so bad at first, but after 3 years of paying it I’m realizing using Nest cameras has become a multiple thousand dollar system for us. We are stuck paying for this as long as we want to keep using the Nest cams. Great marketing by them, but terrible long-term option for surveillance system. I wish I would have considered long-term costs before I bought Nest cameras.
    Samsung: 0/10. No cloud option; SD card stores video locally, app on phone allows you to view feed in real time. If you don’t need a camera for anything other than real-time viewing, can’t go wrong with the Samsung. But it’s not a cloud cam, if you need cloud storage/access look elsewhere.
    Arlo Pro: 9/10. Free cloud storage of video clips for 7 days for up to 5 cameras; $100/year for up to 10 cameras and 30 days; $150/year for up to 15 cameras and 60 day of clip storage. For comparison, Arlo Pro lets you have 10 cameras and offers 30 days of storage for what Nest charges for 1 camera and 7 days.

    ** Video Quality **
    Nest: 8.5/10, very good, but if you zoom in it gets exponentially poor. Night vision also good.
    Samsung: 9.0/10, ever so slightly better than Nest. In my experience, Samsung’s zoom is crisper and its night vision is superior than Nest.
    Arlo Pro: 6.0/10, acceptable daytime color feed, but overall Arlo Pro is poorer than the others (Note: this might be due to farther distance from router). Night vision is on par with Nest, but if you buy the Arlo Pro skins (sold separately), they actually reflect off the IR in the corners of the screen and wash out the image. So don’t use the skins.

    ** Audio Quality **
    Nest: 6.0/10. The Nest cam’s audio is the most frustrating feature of this camera for me. It’s two-way, but only one-way at a time (like a walkie talkie). If you use it to monitor & talk to a baby or pet, the lag is considerable and you cannot hear yourself on the other end. My wife & I tested this, she stayed home I left and tried talking to the dogs through the app. My voice came through choppy & was not clear. Some of what I said wasn’t sent at all. When listening through the app, audio is quieter even on highest setting. This is the Nest cam’s weakest feature, and frankly, it doesn’t work well at all.
    Samsung: 9.0/10. Fantastic audio quality, and it’s true two-way so both sides can speak and hear each other at the same time (like a cell phone). When you speak you can hear yourself speaking on the other end on your smartphone while watching the feed. Nest does not do this. Samsung Smartcam can also double as a baby monitor by playing lullaby music and a few other songs. Bonus.
    Arlo Pro: 9.0/10. Excellent audio quality, clips stored to cloud playback with crisp audio. The camera overlooking my driveway clearly transmits the crisp snaps of dried twigs being crushed as cars goes down my driveway.

    **Wireless Connectivity**
    Nest: 7.0/10. Inside my house, connections are mostly good. Cameras at far edges of my house drop signal constantly. I know because I get notifications daily when a Nestcam drops offline. I used…

    2 month review…updated 11/10/17, May 9, 2017

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    I’ve had these cameras for 2 months now, so I feel I can write a fair review. I bought this system because I wanted to hang cameras outside of my house so that I can see what’s going on when I’m not home and so my wife can feel safer. I also didn’t want to drill holes and run wire through the house. After doing lots of research, I decided on this system. I have 4 cameras all together, and 3 of them are attached to trees outside, the 4th is outside, but attached to the house. I didn’t want to get a wired system and run wires to the trees. I put black sleeves on the cameras so that they blend in with the tree better. After reading many reviews on home security systems, I realized that even the wired systems rarely got good reviews, so why not just get a wireless system. I have some positive and negative feelings about this system.

    The camera sends you an alert, almost immediately (which I love) when it detects motion. A few weeks ago I got an alert and checked it out, to find out that somehow my cats had gotten out of my house and were in the backyard!! I called my wife who wasn’t home at the time, and she ran home. I was looking at the camera image in real time and when I saw one of my cats in the backyard I was able to tell her where he was and she was able to retrieve him. For that reason alone, I am eternally grateful to Netgear and their very sensitive motion detection. I never would’ve known that the cats had escaped if it wasn’t for the cameras. That being said, I have lots of trees near my house, and even with pruning branches, I still get so many alerts when it’s windy that I tend to turn off the cameras until it gets less windy. It would be nice if Netgear can work on an algorithm that allows the camera to “learn” when it’s just branches moving from the wind. Also, I had to work on placement of the cameras so that I don’t get an alert every time a car drove by my house. I’ve since arranged my 4 cameras in a way that I get mostly relevant alerts (except when it’s windy).

    Battery life: I’ve had the cameras for about 8 weeks now, and I haven’t had to change the batteries yet. One of my camera’s is running low because it used to be triggered by every car that drove by, but I bought a spare battery and the battery charger (which took a month to arrive) so that i always have a fully charged battery on hand. If you don’t do that, then you’d have to remove the camera and bring it inside to plug into a USB plug to charge. That would be annoying for me since I don’t use the included magnetic mounts because I found that they didn’t allow me to aim the cameras well. I bought the mounts which extend outwards (amazon sells a double pack which is ok) so that I can aim the cameras better. For me to get on a ladder, unscrew the camera from the mount on the tree, bring it in to charge via USB, then go back out and get on my ladder and try to re-aim the cameras is a pain the butt. With the spare battery I’d just open up the camera , swap batteries, and be good for another few months.

    Image: This is why I took off a star (I’d prefer to take off a star and half). The camera is supposed to be an HD camera, but the image during the day is really pixelated, especially if it’s windy. I actually think the night images are better in sharpness then the daytime ones! The cameras internal IR light is puny, but I have security lights outside to light up my yard, so I don’t rely on the cameras own IR light. I don’t understand why the daytime image is less sharp then the night time ones, it’s almost like the sensor is overwhelmed by any movement, and this is even when setting the cameras to maximum sharpness levels (as well as the recommended medium level). The camera would never be adequate to read a plate or even see a face very clear, but it’s good enough to get a broad idea of what’s going on. I can see when UPS drops off packages, but I wouldn’t be able to identify the driver from a line up. I can see if someone is peeping through my window, but again, I wouldn’t be able to identify his/her face. Nevertheless, it serves it’s purpose because I just want to know if someone is in my backyard.

    Range: I have 4 cameras set up, 3 on outside trees. The furthest cameras are about 100 feet away from the base station. I get 2 of 3 WiFi bars on the camera, so that’s ok. I tried getting a WiFi extender in hopes that the WiFi signal would be boosted to the camera, but you’d have to plug the base station into the WiFi extender, which for me defeats the purpose because then I’d have to move the base station away from my wireless router! Nevertheless, I’m always able to get a live feed from the cameras, with minimal buffering, so I have no complaints about range.

    Software: The software is easy to use. I get an alert almost immediately when there’s motion and I get an email with a 10 second movie clip. When I get an alert I usually go onto their software (I have it on my Galaxy…
