I’ve never had security cameras and recently tried a smart lock and discovered it worked on 2.4 ghz WiFi only. I have xfinity xb3 WiFi modem router and 3 xFi xpods creating a mesh dual band network in home. The lock did not work on dual band mesh network. Will arlo products work on a dual band mesh network ? If not what would you recommend?

Arlo Pro 3 does not use your local wifi network. It has its own hub that you plug into your router.

 

The hub then communicates with cameras on a dedicated wifi network that nothing else can use.

 

The app that you install on a mobile device does not care what wifi band it uses.

@michaelkenward gave you part of the answer (covering cameras that connect to a base station).

 

Arlo also has some cameras that connect to your home wifi network w/o a base.  They do use 2.4 ghz (which has more range).  They will work with a dual band mesh, though sometimes people have had some trouble on-boarding them.

 

I have an Orbi mesh (RBK50), and had no trouble on-boarding the video doorbell.

I gave the answer for the cameras listed in the footer on the first message.

 

It said Arlo Pro 3 Wire-Free Camera.

 

I decided not to confuse the matter with other devices.
