You need 4K? 8K? 720p is fine to use in broad daylight. 1080p Pro isn't going to be much difference. I'll probably use these inside anyway, so high resolution isn't necessary...

Search the review for comparison of 720P and 1080P versions on youtube before you talk sarcastic. If you want the 720P go buy it, nobody is stopping you. I’m going to block you now so i don’t have to read your idiotic comeback comments. Get a life.

Just watched a few comparison videos and there really isn’t much of a difference either

I went to Walmart Candiac (QC) after finding one in stock as shown in stocktrack for $99 whereas nearest LaSalle was priced $300.
Alas, it was nowhere spotted on the floor nor any help from the associates to find it.
Didn't leave empty handed as found Sandisk Microsd 16g (UPC 619659116026) for $3 and got a few.

Back home and check again ... this time Walmart Lasalle show $99 for netgear cam and it is OOS while Candiac still has one ... still missing somewhere.
Likely it taken/reserved by one of it associates for hiim/herself.

Does anyone know whether you can plug the camera in for the vms3230 so you don't have to use batteries?

As someone who deals with CCTV on a daily basis, 720p is pretty bad. 1080p should be the absolute minimum when shopping for a security camera. Though there are other factors aside from resolution that contribute to image quality.

480i was bad too but we watched it for years didn't we? 720p for inside a house? For checking up on who is at the front door? On my phone? It's just fine...

720p is fine until you need to ID someone. It's one thing to record an event on camera; it's another thing for the footage to actually be useful.

I fully agree, i have 3 Trendnet cams, all 720P and they’re not really ideal for id’ng people. That’s why i’m staying out of 720P on my next purchase based from my experience. Cheers!

Sure you can, there's a small port inside the battery compartment. Most likely a micro USB. There are tons of YouTube videos that demonstrate that.

I thought the $99 set was the Arlo Pro 2 since that's what is shown in the pictures on the website. I was going to buy 2 sets to replace my Arlo Pro 1 cameras but when I got to the store, there was 2 sets in the display case and it was the Arlo Pro 1 that is $99. I didn't really want them but I ended up buying a set anyways so it doesn't seem like I wasted my time LOL

Lucky. I tried to find them at my local wm but no luck. Been eyeing the Arlo pro and pro 2 for the no subscription fees.
Hopefully maybe some deals come BF. But won’t be as good as these clearance deals. C’est la vie

From what I recall and I may be wrong, the issue and why you didn't see a difference between the 2 is the 1080 is compressed to hell so youre getting what is essentially 720. Another flaw with the pro 2 is night vision is actually worst than the pro.

These and cameras like wyze is only useful if youre constantly checking notifications or watch it it at work at real time to alert authority when something is taking place at that moment. If you want something thats actually reliable and can capture fine detail, get real cameras hardwired like hikvision

The reason I wanted a battery operated one is that the outside of my house has a porch/sunroom that is completely enclosed but has no power outlet nearby that I can wire into. I *could* put it inside the room since there is an overhead light there that I could tap into but then I have to turn off things like movement since it won't work through windows. Any wide angle camera would do then. The only other problem is that the batteries will fail to operate if it's too cold out and here in Thunder Bay, winter days and nights can get really cold. The sunroom however will stay well above freezing so at this point, it seems this is my only option for a security camera.

I'm in a similar dilemma too and that was why I explored Arlo a few years ago. I couldn't swallow the price at the time for what it was for Arlo. I really wanted to be sold on this camera, but just settled for Wyze and have it mounted inside the house looking out. It's basically useless at night with IR reflecting on the glass but serves its purpose to live watch while at work.

As long as you know its limitations and purpose, it's not terrible at $50/camera. What makes this deal cold is having to run around the city chasing the handful of stock that all of RFD is after (yes, I live in Downtown Canada).
