What is the latest Hardware versions for Arlo Pro 2?

What is the latest hardward version for Arlo Pro 2? I've recently purchased 2 cameras and their hardward version is displayed as H4. Just interested to see how this compares to others. Thanks

When did you purchase your devices out of interest? Mine are Oct 2018 vintage...

I am curious to know why there is such a range on Hardware versions between the same model?? It actually worries me that different hardware versions have different behaviors...

 

I have 3 Arlo Pro 2 cameras that are all listed as H3. Does anyone know the difference??

Just bumping this. 

Does anyone know if the H4 is better than the H3 in any way?

 

I am thinking of getting the Arlo pro 2 and wondering how you can tell the hardware version by just looking at the box?

You can't tell. ANd the difference in hardware version likely just means nothing substantial has changed in the design considerations but may just be some different components or a different manufacturing plant.

Ok thanks very much for the info. I was wondering if it had any slight improvment on the night vision. One user suggested so.

I wouldn't expect so other than on a batch by batch basis with some batches having the same components but slightly different actual specs.

I just got 2 Arlo pro 2 camera's in March 2019 and they are both H4 hardware. But I also think they have been on the shelf at my local store for a few months. Seems like H4 rolled out late 2018.

I think all of my Pro 2 cameras are H3, including four I purchased late last Fall (2018).  

 

Sadly the versions are not very helpful for users.  I have Pro cameras at H6 & H7.  Original Arlo cameras at H7 and H11.  Arlo Q Plus at “6” with no H.  It would be nice if somewhere, the app actually mentioned what model camera it was.
