Netgear Adds Doorbell and Chime to Arlo Home Security

If you have one of those Netgear Arlo security cameras, hereโ€™s some good news. Netgear announced today the latest expansion of its smart home approach, the all-new Arlo Audio Doorbell and Arlo Chime.

Netgear Arlo Audio Doorbell: More rings to your smartphone

In a nutshell, this new smart doorbell kit can ping your smartphone when someone rings your doorbell. As a result, among other things, you can give them the option to leave you a message. Or you can also play a canned message to them, just like when your phone is ringing. And if you already have an Arlo camera, there’s the option to view a live video feed of the person.

For those who already own an Arlo camera kit, such as the Arlo Pro 2, the Arlo Doorbell seems a natural addition, since even without the Arlo Doorbell, your Arlo Pro 2 already gives you the option to get a notification when someone appears within the range of the camera.

And you then can even have a conversation with them via the cameraโ€™s telecom function. But the Arlo Audio Doorbell is designed to also work just by itself.

Netgear says the Arlo Audio Doorbell is easy to install and can replace traditional push-button doorbell. It uses two standard AA batteries and can last up to 12 months before you need to replace them. Itโ€™s also weather-resistant and can connect with an existing digital and mechanical door chimes without additional hardware or wiring, especially, if you choose to use the Arlo Chime.

Netgear Arlo Chime: Audio alerts and siren of choice.

You won’t need to use batteries with the Arlo Chime since this accessory — designed to work with the Arlo Audio Doorbell or Arlo cameras — plugs right into any wall socket to deliver audible alerts or sirens at that location.

Netgear says the Arlo Chime can serve audible alerts up to 80+ decibel with volume control and melody options adjustable via the Arlo app.

The Arlo Chime, as well as the Arlo Audio Doorbell, uses Wi-Fi to connect, meaning where you can place it depends on your Wi-Fi coverage.
