Arlo is adding to its extensive line of security products by introducing a new home security system with the new Pro 5S 2K security camera.
The Arlo Home Security System is billed as an all-in-one system capable of eight different sensing functions.
In addition to motion detection, the system is capable of detecting door and window opening and tilting, water leaks, freezing temperatures, changes in lighting, and T3 and T4 smoke and carbon monoxide alarm sirens.
At the heart of the system is a multifunctional keypad sensor hub, which is not only used to manage various parts of the assembly, but also doubles as a motion sensor in its own right. The Keyboard Sensor Hub All-in-One Multi-Sensor also includes Arlo SecureLink technology, which enables encrypted communications between components and long range.
The system also works with Arlo’s 24/7 professional monitoring and emergency response system to assure users that their home is protected.
To go along with the new security system, the Arlo Secure app is being redesigned with a new user interface aimed at enhancing both control and customization.
Once set up, real-time emergency response status updates can be sent via text or phone call while emergency personnel are on their way home. This can help homeowners better manage emergencies even when they are away from home.
The app also introduces various automations to trigger recurring tasks. These include geofencing, mode switching, alarms, scheduling and other options.
The new Pro 5S 2K security camera is Arlo’s most advanced offering yet. As well as offering a 2K view of whatever it is pointing at, it does so with high levels of connectivity.
With tri-band connectivity, the camera will connect to the strongest network available between 5GHz and 2.4GHz Wi-Fi networks. Pairing with an Arlo home security system using SecureLink means the camera will stay connected to the system, even during internet or power outages, using strong encryption.
The Pro 5S also has increased battery life, with its new low-power mode potentially lasting up to 30% longer.
Arlo is yet to announce pricing and availability details for its new products.
