NetGear Arlo Go LTE works without a wifi connection
Smart home devices needs a wifi connectivity for sure, making those devices work without a wifi connection is nothing but a dream. Even though they are connected, sometimes if a network error happens, everything goes wrong.
Brands are focusing primarily on solving problems and bringing out alternative solutions by understanding exactly the users are looking for. NetGear’s Arlo was one of the serious competitors of Nest outdoor cameras.
NetGear launched a new indoor and outdoor cellular security camera which works with a 4G SIM card powered by LTE technology.
This device works anywhere (even on a tree) because it doesn’t really require a wifi connection to make it work. NetGear’s Arlo Go LTE comes with a sim card slot so that you can put a sim card into it, add a data pack and make it work without any trouble.
The data communication works with LTE (Long term evolution) technology which is the backbone of 4G connectivity (which you might be using in your smartphone already).
The device is powered by a rechargeable battery which helps the device to be put anywhere you want. It could survive upto a week or more than that with a single charge and the battery life depends on the temperature and activity.
You’ll be able to access the HD video recordings captured by Arlo Go LTE via the Arlo smart phone application or you can put a 32GB memory card to record the video clips.
It comes with a 130 degree wide view angle lens, free cloud storage upto 7 days and a night vision camera as well to take better quality recordings at night.
The primary problem which they are trying to solve is to help users collect recordings both indoor or outdoor with a cellular connectivity. Especially when it comes to outdoor, you can screw this security camera even on tree top to record the footages.
The product is interesting because of the LTE technology used in it. If this happens to be successful, more and more products will be arriving with sim card facility powered by LTE.
Well, that’s a lots of connections for a smart home.
