'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.

Arlo Essential Wireless Security Camera

As the holidays draw closer, Arlo has launched a sale for devices that can keep your property safe and secure -- whether or not you're away from home this Christmas. 

The site-wide sale includes a deal for a starter kit suitable to begin your security setup. While usually priced at around $260, a two-pack of Arlo Essential wireless security cameras is discounted by $100 (38% off), bringing the cost down to $160.

The Arlo Essential security pack comes with two cameras that can be used indoors or outdoors. You can expect video recording quality to hit 1080p over a 130-degree viewing angle. There is also an integrated spotlight and color night vision. The cameras are compatible with smart assistants including Amazon Alexa and Google Home, and you can use your mobile device to check in on your property at any time. 

You can choose between white or black cameras.
