Will the white arm mounts shown in the video (not the magnetic balls) be part of the 2 camera package, or even available for purchase?

Hello ArloNewbie,

 

Yes, there will be an accessory available for purchase (coming soon) as seen in the video. However, the Arlo camera can be mounted using a standard camera mount of your choosing.

 

Let us know if you find creative ways to mount your camera(s) outside!!

 

We look forward to hearing your stories!

Are the mount accessories going to use the magnetic mount, or will they offer the screw in camera mount to ensure the weather will not cause them to fall off the mount?

When will the outdoor mounts like the ones in the video be available?

I was trying to get some dusk/early morning pic of the local deer with the Arlo cam... was pleased to be able to attach the camera right to the metal post of my chain link fence ( with the internal magnetic ).

Bah, over a month? Any other sources? However, I did find two/2 mounts from http://arlo.com/en-us/products/kit/VMS3230.aspx 's bottom right sections that go to http://arlo.com/en-us/products/add-on/vma1000.aspx ($19.99) and http://arlo.com/en-us/products/add-on/vma1100.aspx ($24.99). However, buying these add-ons resulted  "Page Not Found -- The page you requested could not be found or is no longer available..." errors. I assume those would also be ready on Fools' Day. 😞

 

What about third parties from local stores like Fry's Electronics, Best Buy, Costco, Walmart, Target, Office Depot, Staples, Office Max, Radio Shack, etc.?

Thank you in advance. 🙂

FYI, any standard threaded camera mount should work with  the Arlo cameras

The camera mount screws on the bottom of the camerasare not compatible. I can not get any tripod devise I have to attach more than 1/2 to 1 thread. This is not enough for the camera to securely attach!

It's a 1/4-20 thread, standard issue for most cameras. I bought some cheap mounts from Amazon that fully thread into the camera. If you can only get 1 thread or less I'd use a thread chaser, tap and/or die to clean things up.

I used the magnetic ball and put a washer on a tripod bolt allen head. Went to Ace and bought small 16th inch cable, made a loop on each end with farrow. Attach one end to branch other to bottom of camera with bolt and washer.
