    Video was hella helpful! Thanks.

  2. A Christian on February 18, 2021 at 4:25 pm

    I am looking for a camera that will save my video files directly to my PC or NAS via WiFi? I DO NOT USE APPS OR A CLOUD.

  3. KYGamer on February 18, 2021 at 4:26 pm

    Eufy cam 2 is the best.. It costs more but no subscription fee.. Fuck subscription fees, you’ve already paid for the product.

  4. Constable Dodo on February 18, 2021 at 4:28 pm

    These all use wifi, which any thief can turn off with a simple device bought on amazon..

  5. Sergio Montes on February 18, 2021 at 4:31 pm

    I’ve been a prison guard for about 15 years from level 4 killers to level 1 low level offenders. They don’t care about cameras. Good luck.

    No thanks on any of the wireless options they got now a days. I know it’s easy to use your phone as a control, and viewer, but if it hooks up to your WiFi, or the internet you’re leaving yourself exposed, and it’s a lot more common then you think. Search here on YouTube for "defcon camera hack" and watch the first video "exploiting network survelience cameras"

  7. livelovelaugh on February 18, 2021 at 4:35 pm

    Since the Arlo Ultra is so expensive, it shouldn’t have any cons.

  8. Yosemite Sam on February 18, 2021 at 4:36 pm

    it is not recommended to be dependent on cloud recording. don’t count on Anyone to save to recorded data.
    in today’s world, it can mean a life or death situation.
    there are companies which offer you both. but you don’t have to use both. you can use either "your" own network, or a simple hard drive. or both, a hard drive and a cloud backup. (use a hard drive made for DVR or NVR. depending on your setup.
    (don’t be a fool and pay a monthly subscription) that’s a total ripoff.
    I’m surprised he did not include Hikvision camera’s

  9. Alex Yen on February 18, 2021 at 4:38 pm

    How is the zooming ability in them?

  10. SirGrey on February 18, 2021 at 4:39 pm

    Does any of the systems work when the internet is down or there’s an electric outage (in the case of the sync module)?

  11. K Sas on February 18, 2021 at 4:39 pm

    The blink xt2 I don’t like. Especially for outdoor, the camera has to be noticeable to discourage ppl from messing around your property.

  12. Get Lockers on February 18, 2021 at 4:42 pm

    I love this amazing video

  13. John Namias on February 18, 2021 at 4:43 pm

    Most of the cameras I’ve previewed have lousy security. They don’t accept the standard of UPPERCASE, lower case, number & special character mixed characters in their access passwords. Most use simple alpha character passwords which are easily cracked. Any recommendations for camera’s that use the more complex, harder to crack passwords?

  14. Berry Mucuckiner on February 18, 2021 at 4:43 pm

    I wonder if it works with people wearing a mask, sunglasses and and hat?

    Just curious?

  15. Jonathan Jacobo on February 18, 2021 at 4:43 pm

    Well honestly all of these suck ass…

  16. Frank Barone on February 18, 2021 at 4:46 pm

    0:11 He said, "I’ve included options for every type of consumer". No he hasn’t. I can’t find a decent wired camera system that has no IP capabilities. I want a CCTV "Closed circuit" cameras that are IP 67 or better weather rated, that can handle operating tempitures from -20 to 140F.

    nest camera is garbage. Not worth the money for what you get

  19. Kenn Gross on February 18, 2021 at 4:51 pm

    I could not get the Arlo Ultra 2 to connect with my cell phone. I think it is a hunk of junk.

  20. Ninjus88 on February 18, 2021 at 4:52 pm

    Thank you for saving me a bunch of time. I still cross-analysed the data but we can’t be too careful can we :] /^ thx for the up!

  21. Ja Te on February 18, 2021 at 4:53 pm

    I’m looking for a wireless, solar powered camera that works with no wifi just in case the power goes out.

  22. Albert tabron on February 18, 2021 at 4:53 pm

    No thanks, all these new security camera systems seems to be a lot of hard brain confusing work, unless you’re into that kind of work.

  23. jfbmax on February 18, 2021 at 4:54 pm

    about wyze cam?

  24. David Kaiser on February 18, 2021 at 4:56 pm

    Great another comercial

  25. D G on February 18, 2021 at 4:57 pm

    I’ve looked at all these brands and did some research and I eneded up with Lorex.

  26. binaryblog on February 18, 2021 at 4:57 pm

    These are toys and not outdoor security cameras. No vandalism protection makes me laugh.

  27. PORNSTARLIVESMATTER on February 18, 2021 at 4:58 pm


  28. r k on February 18, 2021 at 4:59 pm

    so just arlo and nest pretty much

  29. Security Cameras on February 18, 2021 at 5:00 pm

    Brought to you by ARLO.

  30. Jay B on February 18, 2021 at 5:00 pm

    Lets see, I can get a Lorex 4K 8mp with 30fps capability system with 8 cameras for around 1K. Why would anyone pay 500 for just one camera?

  31. That Guy on February 18, 2021 at 5:02 pm

    why no ubiquiti

  32. lynn faraj on February 18, 2021 at 5:03 pm

    Thank you, great review!

  33. George Jungle on February 18, 2021 at 5:05 pm

    So what stops someone from just grabbing the Arlo from the mount and taking off… if they are 500$ thats kind of pricy to just have magnomounted.

  34. UZB7777 on February 18, 2021 at 5:06 pm

    2:10 is he stealing a PS5?

  35. Scuba Steve on February 18, 2021 at 5:09 pm

    They look like cheap plastic if a humming bird flew into them it would be game over!

  36. Major Havoc on February 18, 2021 at 5:09 pm

    They’re all junk!
    If you want 1080p quality then all of these fit the bill.
    If you want to make out license plates and faces then go for 4k cameras.

  37. Will Major on February 18, 2021 at 5:11 pm

    $2,000.00 paper weight and this is their equipment that can’t be used anywhere else on any other system and won’t work just like mine didn’t and cost me $2,500.00 in damages from someone shooting out my $85,000.00 Mercedes Benz windows with his high powered BB Gun in full view of my VIVINT Camera. VIVINT won’t give me all the money I’ve spent on a system that didn’t work for me and hasn’t work for others check out the Better Business Bureau. DON"T GET This System if you have and have same problems lets do something about it lets get a class action lawsuit against VIVINT going to stop this nonsense. I’ve sent in proof to VIVINT showing my neighbors camera caught the guy shooting out my window in plain view of my very expensive VIVINT Camera. VIVINT said, "I’m sorry but we can’t stand behind our Camera’s, but we can offer you a free upgrade". What, free upgrade I’ve been paying on a system for two years that don’t work false sense of security costing my family $89.00 per month for the past two years. There going to throw in free upgrades are you kidding me, right? No, come get your system out of my house it don’t work period never did so no I’m not canceling my service I never had your service.

    They refused to come and get there equipment. Now I’m going public with it, in search for a good lawyer who might take up a class action lawsuit against VIVINT. Have the same problem, but this person has way more has more patients then I do. Cost me $2,500.00 damages done to my vesicle to a system that don’t work.

    I’m asking for anyone with the same problems and don’t trust VIVINT! My expensive camera’s from VIVINT didn’t pick up someone vandalizing my Mercedes Benz several times but my neighbors across the street capture it showing the person was less than 10 feet away shooting out my windows right in front of my VIVINT camera. I showed this t Vivint and the police but they refuse to give me credit for a system that I thought was protecting me and my family for last two years. They refuse to come and pickup their system which didn’t work and they demanded that we cancel. I repeatedly asked them would you pay for something that don’t work or continually don’t work? To make this right pay for the damages done to my Mercedes Benz or give me all the money I’ve paid into this system thus far. They refused, and stated we can install new updated equipment free of charge, but they should be offering this to everyone right now to save face cause this will happen to everyone who has this system. So i save them a possible lawsuits in the future only to be punished. They offered was an insult to injury with possible upgrading a system I can’t trust anymore and they will not backup there equipment or stand behind there expensive system. Why should you then? They just told me we will not stand behind our equipment so you want me to take a free upgrade knowing you will not stand behind your equipment? Are you kidding me, anyone else think this is funny?

  38. Subhas Chandra Boss on February 18, 2021 at 5:16 pm

    Sorry yanks. If you can’t buy the best like Hikvision, blame Trump. China makes so many gadgets affordable. You guys will have to do without in future or pay more.

  39. karen l Smith on February 18, 2021 at 5:16 pm

    What about the fires from the power adapters

  40. Angel garcias on February 18, 2021 at 5:17 pm

    The 2 camara with battery can use osay how long can used fard way for the internet can can put in say the my car thing still work thank you s much

  41. Isidro Oliva on February 18, 2021 at 5:17 pm

    I have the Blink camera and it lags a lot. I updated my wifi thinking that was the reason. After 2 months later lag still continues and can not see faces the best. Will be updating to Arlo Ultra after watching this video!
    Thank you!

  42. joe hendrix on February 18, 2021 at 5:17 pm

    Not paying subscription fees to connect it to a phone or laptop. No thanks. Most of these if not all are subscription cloud service bound.

  43. Diana C on February 18, 2021 at 5:18 pm

    This was a really helpful video since you use everyday language. One thing I’m interested in is record time once motion is detected. I’ve noticed this isn’t always listed in descriptions and is important. But this absolutely helped a lot. Thank you

  44. Jeniva Cruz on February 18, 2021 at 5:19 pm


  45. David Kaiser on February 18, 2021 at 5:22 pm

    I don’t want to put my personal surveillance on big brother Google cloud.

  46. David Torrez on February 18, 2021 at 5:23 pm

    Thanks for telling everyone what not to get. Yes, if you’re broke and need something immediately maybe buy a ring or something. But if you really want to protect your home don’t buy this crap

  47. Tax Payer on February 18, 2021 at 5:24 pm

    Awesome, a full review of outdoor security cameras…but it’s NOT a full review…give. the. damn. prices.
