Arlo Doorbell camera

Hi there,

there is a product that I nearly purchased, sent to me from iPhone magazine, it's called "Skybell WIFI Doorbell"

Which is obviously a doorbell with a camera that communicates with your router & smartphone, and not only can you see the person, you can talk to them too. Plus it was waterproof. I thought I really want something like that, but what stopped me buying it was it was not totally wireless like the Arlo systems I have bought. It needs to connect to a physical power source, not battery powered, so given that total wireless was the main reason for my netgear Arlo purchases, I couldn't buy that doorbell system.

 

I really hope that Netgear and their Arlo team come to up with something similar, as I would definitely buy one if it was available.

 

Cheers

Ross

So I asked about a video doorbell back in May of 2019 and was directed to a CNET page showing at least a mockup of a Arlo video doorbell but not seen any official announcement and looking at the issues here on the audio version that must be the reason for the lack of a video doorbell. Come on Arlo take my money.

Does Arlo have any plans to launch a video doorbell?

Excellent, will this unit work with my Arlo 4000 base unit?

Just looked at video for coming soon Arlo doorbell.  Unfortunately you need an existing hard-wired door bell for this to work, so not for me.
