Every year, many homeowners find themselves the victim of a burglary. Of course, in many cases the homeowner couldn’t have done much to prevent the robbery. However, in some cases, the homeowners could have eliminated a few of the vulnerabilities of their home to make a burglary less likely. For example, the homeowner could have installed an outdoor security camera like Netgear Arlo Go outside of their home.


What Is the Netgear Arlo Go?

The Netgear Alro Go is a new security camera that was recently released by Netgear. This wireless security camera is the first mobile Internet of Things security camera made by Netgear. This security camera was designed to be installed in any area that has a good cellular network signal. Even if your Wi-Fi network is unable to reach your backyard, your hotel room, or even the woods, you can still install the Netgear Alro Go so that it works via your cellular network signal.

Overall, the Netgear Alro Go is very similar to the Netgear Arlo Pro in terms of function and quality. The Arlo Go relies on the same easy-to-use and intelligent software as the Arlo Pro. There is also plenty of free cloud storage for customers who own the Arlo Go. Just like the Pro, the Go is able to capture excellent video quality.

The main difference between the Arlo Go and the Arlo Pro is that the former possesses a built-in cellular modem. This cellular modem can connect to 4G LTE and 3G networks. This allows consumers to take the Go just about anywhere. However, this also means that consumers need to consider the Go’s initial purchase price as well as the price of a monthly data plan.


As a wireless and waterproof security camera, the Arlo Go can be used outdoors or indoors. This security camera is white and shaped like an egg. The security camera has a bevel and a flat black lens as well. The measurements of the security camera are 3.5 x 2.73 x 3 inches. The footprint is 2.3 inches wide and 4.8 inches tall.

The camara is able to rotate in just about any direction. However, the neck ring of the mount is not easy to tighten to secure the physical position of the camera. The user can use the supplied screws to attach the security camera to walls or trees.

Netgear security knows that some may want to use the Netgear Arlo Go to surveillance wildlife. Therefore, users are able to turn off the security camera’s night-vision LEDs. This will prevent distracting animals with the lights. There are also optional skins in camouflage, gillie, and black that users can use to conceal the camera’s white shell.



Some of the main advantages of the Netgear Arlo Go include the following:

  • Can work with a cellular connection
  • Good video quality
  • Easy-to-use and intelligent software
  • Modes and scheduling
  • Geofencing to turn on or off the camera based on the location of the phone


On the other hand, some of the main deficits of the Netgear Arlo Go include the following:

  • Pricey
  • Needs a cellular data plan

Undoubtedly, any individual who needs a good security camera that can function without Wi-Fi will be impressed with the Netgar Arlo Go. For more information about the Go, don’t hesitate to contact us.
