My lot is 2250 feet (square) with a 600 feet house. I have connected 3 x Ubiquiti UniFi AC LR AP to my router, where I have great WIFI in all corners of the house and lot.

My goal is to buy 4 camera’s with two way audio and put them outside in each corner of the lot, facing the house, so all movement around the house, will be registered.

I am considering buying 4 x Arlo Pro 2 and a VMS4230P Base Station. I dont really mind if it connect through WIFI or hardwire.

But at what I can read, then the Arlo camera’s need to connect to Arlo Base Station and can not connect to my Ubiquity AP’s? If this is true, then I am worried that range from Base Station to each camera’s will be too far away to be able to connect. What kind of Arlo camera’s would you suggest for my case?

Thats a shame. I found what I need from TP-link, where the product KC200 fit my needs:

Most of the Arlo cameras need to be connected to a base unit via wifi ( cameras talk only to the base )... the base needs connection of etherent.

 

The only cameras from Arlo that directly connect to wifi are the Q cameras ( and Baby cam )...

but they are not weather proof.
