'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?
ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.
When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.
ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.
If you're like me and have been experiencing the dreaded porch pirates in your neighborhood, a camera can help deter unwanted visitors from stealing your packages. With cameras usually costing a pretty penny, it's refreshing to see the Arlo camera set on sale for up to $90 off. In particular, the Arlo Pro 4 camera currently will cost you $174 – or $25 off the original price.
That's for one camera, which promises up to 2K image playback with an Arlo monthly subscription that employs a 160-degree angle to monitor your home. When the camera alerts you to movement, you can see exactly who's at your door by using the accompanying app to auto track and zoom in with HD quality. And if you want to keep guests away, you can flick the spotlight to alert them that you knowthey're on your doorstep.
The camera is weather resistant, hassle-free to install, and can connect to your smart home WiFi system. With an Arlo subscription, you'll be able to store the camera playback for up to 30 days, just in case. They also come in two colors to help them blend in or stand out.
Right now, a single camera is on sale for $174, or $25 off the original price with code ARLO25. If you have a larger property and want to invest in more cameras, you can get two and save $7. Or, if you want to get one to cover a front yard, a backyard, and an alleyway, as an example, you can opt for three cameras and save $90 with code ARLO90 for a total of $559. These cameras typically don't go on sale, so if you want to pick them up, now's the time to act fast.
