Hello Arlo Support,

 

[Please don't tell me to extend range by getting one more Ultra smart hub; it won't work for my application.]

 

I am a new user, and only went with your system because you charge the most outrageous price tag for your equipment and for your cloud subscriptions, so I figured you must have a better shot at delivering proper user experience. See, I don't have much time in my life, so have to pay with $$$ (which is OK as long as the service is there).

 

Now, users have been asking Arlo for over 5 years for a proper outdoor unit.

 

Why can't Arlo work with their once parent company, Netgear, who already have an outdoor unit: https://www.netgear.com/orbi/rbs50y.aspx to make it work with Arlo Ultra?

 

My property goes quite far, and I need a proper _outdoor_ weather-protected unit to extend the signal. Please make your solution complete. Without an outdoor extender unit it is incomplete. Thanks.

Because that would annoy every other maker of network systems and would tie Arlo to a company with which it has had no direct connection for near-on two years.

Hello Arlo Support,

 

You should know that this community is essentially a user-to-user venue with some input from a small band of Arlo techies. But they probably have little influence on corporate policy

You will find that the idea has been knocking around for some time.
