Arlo Baby and Dedicate Touch Screen Monitor

My wife and I have an Arlo Pro system and are interested in the Arlo Baby. We also really like the dedicated touch screen so we could separate the Arlo Baby from our other Arlo's a little and because the live stream on the app times out after awhile and it would mean we don't have to dedicate our tablets or phones to streaming the baby's cam. We have a 9 week old, so we hope to get the Arlo Baby sooner versus later and noticed the version with the dedicated touchscreen monitor isn't on preorder and is said to arrive sometime in the summer. 

 

Questions: Is the current pre-order Arlo Baby model without the dedicated touchscreen able to function with the touchscreen monitor later? Will the monitor be sold separately as well so that we could pre-order an Arlo Baby now and then buy the touch screen monitor separately to go with it when it comes out or if we simply wanted a second dedicated monitor later?

Dear Arlo Baby user,

 

First of all, we would like to thank you for being an Arlo Baby customer. We hope that this product has been a valuable addition to your family and keeping you close to your little one. Our ultimate goal has been to create the best, most innovative smart baby monitor in the market. Since the product launched in May 2017, our product and engineering teams have been working on improving connectivity, response time, and adding background features to make using Arlo Baby a delight for you to use every day. We recently launched our integration with Apple HomeKit to provide even more ways for you to make the most out of the product.

 

We wanted to let you know that we no longer plan to release a dedicated display monitor. Instead, we are offering people who bought an Arlo Baby a $30 coupon for an Amazon Fire HD 8 Tablet (16GB, With Special Offers), redeemable on Amazon.com. We think this tablet is a great alternative to the Arlo Baby Touchscreen Display. It works great with the Arlo app, offers great image and audio quality, and is Alexa-enabled so you can take advantage of the voice control capability offered by Amazon Alexa. If you would like to take advantage of this offer, please reach out to the Arlo Customer Support team. Please be prepared to provide your name, email address, and your Arlo Baby serial number/MAC address which can be found under the camera. Once our team has been able to verify your ownership of an Arlo Baby camera, we will respond to you with a one-time use coupon. This offer is only available to owners of Arlo Baby cameras registered before March 31, 2018.

 

Warm regards,
The Arlo Team

dsmythe,

 

The touchscreen display will be available as a stand-alone add-on for Arlo Baby in addition to the bundle. More information will be available on this closer to release.

The Arlo Baby 7” Touchscreen Display, shipping in Summer of 2017, will be available for purchase as an add-on to your existing Arlo Baby camera for $99.99, or in a set with the Arlo Baby camera for $349.99.

 

In its Direct Connect mode, the display will allow for live streaming of video from the Arlo Baby camera without the need for an Internet connection. Cloud features such as remote live streaming and Library access will not be available from the tablet in Direct Connect mode. The display can also connect to the cloud via WiFi, just like a regular smart tablet. When connected to WiFi, the tablet will have all the cloud features as you would expect from the Arlo mobile app, and allow you to access all devices on your Arlo account.

When is the release date for the dedicated tablet?  We are well into summer and I bought Baby expecting an imminent release for the tablet.

Hi, James.  There is an article on the arlo site that the touchscreen would be available in July 2017:

As we are closing in on August, any updates?

Hi there,

We currently have the Arlo Pro system and were curious if the touchscreen display would work for the cameras we already have or if you have to have the baby monitor. Also, it keeps being noted that the display will be out this summer but as August is about to end is there a more accurate release date?

Hello,

We have twins... so, will we be able to monitor both of our Arlo Baby's streams at the same time? I am hoping the Arlo Baby 7" Touchscreen Display (ABD1000) will be able to have a split screen mode. Please let me know if this is an intended functionality.

 

Thank you
