If you are looking to dump some rubbish beware, Netgear has a tough new Arlo camera product that allows local Councils to easily catch you out. The device can also be easily attached to a helicopter for live streaming of content in any weather or used as an outdoor security camera.
The new Arlo Go also has an optional camouflage kit and a battery that can last months on a single charge.
Where other similar high performance cameras need a power supply, this camera is totally portable.
It also has a speaker and microphone, allowing it to function as an intercom.
The camera can record to an SD Card for local back up storage alongside 3G/4G connectivity for uploading video to the cloud. Nergear’s Arlo Go, like the Arlo Pro, also has motion detection capability due to new machine learning technology.
This allows it to recognize specific objects, allowing it to ignore things like cars and animals so you don’t get as many pings. This is all managed via the updated Arlo app, which is now live in the Play Store.
Both the Arglo Go and the Arlo Pro feature night vision, and are weatherproof for moisture and temperatures as low as -2 degrees centigrade. Anyone trying to dump rubbish beside a road or in a park can easily be identified.
If you already have an Arlo camera, the Arlo Pro can be connected to your existing hub, while the Arlo Go removes the need for a base station with 3G/4G LTE coverage.
According to Patrick C.S Lo the CEO of Netgear who gave ChannelNews a personal tour of their CES Display Netgear is reaping the benefits of a major investment in R+D.
Currently the Company spends around 6.5% of developing new products.
Right now the Company who will shortly launch a major new product in partnership with Telstra is dominating the Australian consumer networking market.
Lo told ChannelNews that the rebranding of Netgear and the introduction of new highly visible packaging was working not only for Netgear but key retail partners such as JB Hi Fi and Harvey Norman.
Among the new products released at CES was Arlo Baby, which is most likely the most adorable thing the router company has ever put its name on.
That’s due in no small part to the inclusion of a number of different covers that dress the camera up as different animals, including a ‘bunny’ face.
Packed into this 1080p camera are air sensors, two-way audio for communicating with the little one, a head that doubles as a multicolour nightlight and a built-in music player for lullabies or whatever sort of sick jams your baby is listening to these days.
The camera has built-in motion and sound alerts and a battery that promises up to seven hours on a charge.
The camera will be on sale in Australia shortly.
