[The Source] TheSource Arlo Pro 2 w/ 2 cameras $450 PSP PM with Bestbuy

The Source has an Intro Offer for the Arlo Pro 2 with 2 cameras for $450 after PSP discount. PM with Best Buy for another $7 off. There was a sale for $399 for the original Arlo Pro w/ 2 cameras but $50 more for the pro 2 seems a pretty good deal.

Salesperson confirmed the PM at my local Best Buy but I opted for the original Arlo Pro w/ 4 cameras for 679 which I thought was a pretty good deal as well.

Set the cameras up last night and seems to be working well so far (just need to play around and optimize the motion settings). Note the Arlo Pro 2 has Motion Zones and 3second look back before he motion happened,but the cameras need to be plugged in.

A few reviews on amazon.com but one interesting one.

"Please be VERY aware that this product (Arlo Pro 2 1080p) has a serious flaw. It will regularly and randomly go offline and only removing the battery will reset it and bring it back online. When this happens the battery depletes at approximately 10% per hour. Thus completely dead in 10 hours.

I have had an Arlo Pro 1 with five cameras for a long time without issue. But the Arlo Pro 2 has a fault and it is fundamental. A lot of people are discussing this on the Netgear community. Please be aware of the before you buy."

Price appears to be $529.99 now... How good are these cameras? Are they worth the premium for outdoor wireless cameras?

Can they run Power over Ethernet too instead of wireless?

You'll need to register for the PSP discount through The Source. They can be plugged into an outlet but that is to avoid recharging the battery, no PoE.

Couple of friends have the Arlo Pro 2 and haven't complained of this issue so I'm not sure it's applicable to all. This is fairly new to Canada, I think it just officially launched, so it's possible it was an early revision (US only) that had this problem.

I think it depends on the location you want to put the cams. If it is accessible to a power outlet then the Nest may work well. But if not, and the position of the cams can be accessed easily to take batteries out and recharge (in my case all I need to do is open my window to get to my cams), then the arlo pro may work better. Only concern i have now is both nest and arlo pro seems to not function well during very cold temperatures.
