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?

Before You Buy
(This would alleviate having to switch back and forth between two cameras.)
I've seen that the Arlo Baby 7" touchscreen Display has been marked as "coming soon" for some time. I would like to purchase the Arlo baby camera along with the touchscreen display. But I would need both products. Any clue as to how soon is "soon?" Are there any other Arlo displays available other than using a mobile device which isn't a closed circuit connection and isn't always running. Thanks
After further verification, I've been informed that the Arlo Baby touchscreen monitor will be able to stream two Arlo Baby cameras simultaneously.
So....just noticed this on the product page....
"This Arlo Baby combo set will be available for purchase in Spring 2018. Join our pre-order list for future updates on availability!"
What is going on? I bought into the Arlo Baby system - as I'm sure many others did - because of the dedicated display. This is a REQUIRED part of a baby monitoring system. Another 6 month delay is unacceptable.... please update.
Spring 2018?!?! @JamesC - Care to comment / provide an update? (And don't tell us Q3 again).
Sounds like Netgear ran into some major issues for the monitor. Common sense tells me that if the bundle is not available until Spring 2018, the standalone monitor is also not arriving until then. AFAIK, there's no practical difference between the bundle and standalone. The pricing is even the same as the two products individually.
Sorry, but unless there's a major change (like immediate availability for purchase) in the next week, I'm taking my business elsewhere. Netgear, you've lost my business.
The release of the Arlo Baby touchscreen display has been delayed as further development work needs to be done to bring the product’s performance to a level that we believe will satisfy our users’ expectations. With the touchscreen display, our goal is to offer a monitoring experience which is simple, real-time, and reliable while still allowing our users to access the smart features Arlo Baby has to offer. We understand that this delay may be causing disappointment amongst our existing Arlo Baby users and we ask for your patience while the Arlo team works on perfecting the product’s performance. In the meantime, we recommend that you use a tablet, if available, as a monitoring device.
Wanted to see if there is a more recent update on the release date for the Touchscreen that accompanies the Arlo Baby camera? It's nearly the end of 3Q 2017 so hoping to get a more definitive date.

This is ridiculous and borders on fraud. Is Netgear going to do anything to compensate all of us who bought in to a promised system? My child will be a year old by the time you release.
Time to take a breath. There are so many more important things to hyperventilate about. Sure, it would have been nice to have a product as originally scheduled but do you want a proper product or not? Maybe there are design issues, production issues, components not available, whatever.
It's not even close to fraud. It's simply a missed target and you're making all kinds of unsupported suppositions.
