The Arlo Essential wired video doorbell has dropped to just $99.99 at Amazon. That's a great low price, and you'd have to go back to last year's Black Friday deals to find it going anywhere near this low. The doorbell normally sells for around $150 and hasn't dropped below $120 in 2022. You can find this deal through Best Buy as well.
You get full HD video with HDR support that enhances the image quality. Thanks to the 180-degree field of view, you can capture everything happening in front of your door. It has a ton of other great feautres like motion detection and two-way audio as well.
While Arlo's video doorbell might look like all the other video doorbells out there, it's actually much better than most. It has a ton of great features and an aesthetic design with a slender profile. It has a camera at the top and a button on the bottom and can capture HD video with up to 1536 x 1536 pixel resolution. Since it has a 180-degree field of view, it can see so much that's going on in front of your door. This along with the 1:1 aspect ratio lets you get an image that makes it much easier to see people at your door.
You can also connect the Arlo video doorbell to your WI-Fi network and then to your smarthome ecosystem. Use Amazon Alexa and a combination of voice commands to view what's happening outside from any video device that is supported. Set up smart alerts as well that includes some advanced stuff like package detection so you know when your next shipment arrives.
There are so many other features, too. Use night vision to capture video in low light, two-way audio so you can hear everything that's going on and speak to your visitors, and you can even trigger a built-in siren to scare away intruders or wandering cats. You can even setup a pre-recorded message for when you're not around.
You don't have to worry much about wear and tear, either, since the video doorbell is weather resistant and can stay outside even in the heat or the cold. It installs easily over your existing doorbell wiring, and Arlo backs it up with a one-year warranty.
