Does anyone know if there is an Arlo Pro wireless camera with 1080p rather than 720p in the near future?  I am considering buying this system but the lower resolution is holding me back.  Other systems do offer the higher resolution, but do not have the other features I am looking for that are available in this system.

Haven't heard anything but it's unlikely that Netgear would announce anything prior to release much like all the other tech companies don't. I suspect the fear is that sales will dry up as people wait for the new release but I would have that same fear if I was a tech maker

Thanks for your input. You are right about them not talking about it. I may just wait or look at other systems.

Greetings,

Include me with those that are happy with the easy setup, features and mobile app of my Arlo Pro system. However, I previously owned an outdoor 1080p camera and the details I saw in the close proximity of my home were crisp (eg license plates, faces, etc).

It may have been mentioned before, but an option could be a firmware update that allows 1080p resolution when only connected to a charger/power cable. I agree that the batteries would not be able to support the option without constant recharging. Also, would not be a solution for cameras totally exposed to the elements; however, not all of my cameras are. 4 out of my 5 outdoor cams are not exposed to rain. Moreover, I would want just 2 cams to have 1080p resolution out of the 5. Additional features such as setting “active areas” for motion detection would also be uselful, but 1080p resolution will make a world of difference.

 

Again, I am satisfied with the system but my search and decision to buy it would have been more immediate if there was an outdoor 1080p solution.

 

Regards.
