Today, we are going to check and test out the Arlo Essential Video Doorbell Wire Free. This is a battery powered (rechargeable battery) Video Doorbell camera that has a 1:1 aspect ratio and 180° diagonal FOV, so it is pretty good in seeing the top and bottom of your front door area so that you can see the visitor's head even if they are too close to your door and also see if there are any packages left in your front door. So, we will do the unboxing, check out it's features, do the setup and installation. We will then test the video and audio quality and run the usual battery of tests and see if this new battery powered Arlo video doorbell camera will find it's way to your home.

Is the lag still there?
If you lower the resolution, will the latency reduce?
I bought a wired one for $170.00. My handyman could not get it hooked up to my doorbell. He tried many ways. The Arlo got super hot so he removed it and said it was a POS. It took great video but no ringer. Do i need an electrician to install it? Now it is probably burned up.
Very good review! Thx!!
Thx for the review it s shit i won t buy this trash
The sad part about this door bell is that you must be at your property your not able to be notified by Arlo door bell once you leave the property no signal and can not monitor who comes and goes I took mine back to the store due to this issue $239
many others you can buy that monitor and able to speak anywhere and watch record anywhere at anytime
Good video thank you for sharing
Great review, Cheers
Did the latency issue get resolved?
Can this doorbell connect to multiple phones?
Ok i am wondering does this work with apple HomeKit? Online in the specs it says it does, but when you just showed the box details it does not say that it is support for HomeKit!
Thank you for the video. I wish however you would have shown us how you mounted the wood on the brick. I need to do the same for my Arlo, but don't know how.
With all of the ‘meh’ reviews on YouTube, it’s refreshing to see one that is SUPERB‼️
Did they update it yet to connect to the hub? I already have a Arlo setup for my house.
can this doorbell be added to a base station?alreay have arlo pro 2
So because it isn’t wired, all you’ll get is a phone call when the doorbell is pressed plus a motion notification when the camera detects someone? That’s a shame, but I suppose the notification and alert on my phone is more convenient than a noise played throughout my home.
Great job! I'll get the Ring 2.
great presentation very thorough thank you
Having issues with set up as I can't get past the pairing. Arlo won't connect to qr code. Any ideas?
