Arlo Video Doorbell
It’s priced well, it performs well and the Arlo Smart cloud service is competitively priced, starting at $3 per month. With Arlo Smart, you get a ton of features, from advanced motion alerts to 30 days of cloud storage and much more.
In our opinion, Arlo’s first video doorbell is the best available on the market right now. If you already have other Arlo devices, then it’s a no-brainer; if not, then it should still be top of the list of considerations. Slim and stylish, it displays super-detailed footage. Thanks to the camera’s 180-degree field of view and 1:1 aspect ratio, you can view the full length of the person at your door, including any packages on the ground by their feet.
This is a mains-powered unit, so we’d recommended it’s professionally installed, but Arlo do offer a battery-powered version called Arlo Essential Video Doorbell Wire-Free. Rather than send a notification to your smartphone when someone presses the doorbell, Arlo makes a video call over Wi-Fi instead. Just answer the call to speak to and see whoever is at your door. Through our time testing, we found this process far faster than having to open an app on receipt of a notification, and then waiting for it to connect to the doorbell.
