Arlo Unveils New Security System That Integrates with Existing Cameras

Following in the footsteps of other big security camera brands, Netgear-owned Arlo Technologies has unveiled an all-new security system complete with a hub, siren and multi-sensors.

The brains of the system is the Arlo SmartHub, which can also connect to Arlo’s latest Ultra security camera (as pictured below), as well as older Arlo Pro cameras. You’ll also get multi-sensors, which can be used as door/window sensors, motion sensors, water leak sensors, or a sound sensor that listens for your smoke alarm and will alert you when it goes off.

The system also includes a siren with red LED strobes. So whenever the system detects a break in, it will sound the siren and flash red, as well as let you know there has been a break in and allow you to contact the local authorities. You can also use the siren to emit specific sounds, like a TV or a dog barking.

You’ll also receive a remote to arm and disarm the system, and as previously mentioned, the hub works with Arlo Ultra and Pro cameras as well. So you’ll be able to have all your Arlo products working together in sync.

No specific price was given, but availability is set for the second half of 2019, with support for Z-Wave and ZigBee devices arriving at some point as well—for direct support of third party accessories like Philips smart lights and Yale locks.
