Arlo's latest Ultra security cameras now available in NZ

21 Jan 2021

The newest product in the range of Arlo’s popular Ultra security camera range is now available in New Zealand. The Arlo Ultra 2 Wire-Free Spotlight Camera system is a security system designed to provide peace of mind, and to hopefully prevent thieves or prowlers from even trying anything dodgy.

The Ultra 2 Wire-Free Spotlight Camera System is equipped with 4K video and HDR image recording, auto-zoom and tracking, an integrated spotlight, colour night vision, and compatibility with platforms like Alexa and Google Assistant.

There is also the ability to blast a smart siren (automatically triggered or manually triggered through the app), which would give any unwanted visitors a bit of a scare, plus two-way audio which means you can listen and speak to prowlers at the same time.  If nothing else, knowing someone is watching is a good way to get people off your property.

The products also come with a three month Arlo Smart software trial, which is an AI-based subscription service. Arlo Smart provides extended 30-day rolling cloud storage of 4K HD video recordings, and users can choose customisable notifications. The app offers a bunch of other options like camera adjustment or access to recordings on the cloud.

A statement from Arlo’s APAC vice president and managing director Brad Little says, “Peace of mind should come without compromise which is why we continue to innovate the industry-leading products within the Arlo ecosystem. The Ultra 2 offers enhancements that improve upon its already best-in-class predecessor, providing added flexibility that enables home and business owners to choose the camera that best suits their needs."

“Ultra 2 expands placement options with enhanced range and connectivity together with an award-winning, wire-free design, a long-lasting rechargeable battery and of course, customised Arlo Smart notifications via the Arlo app, enabling users to confidently take control of their security."

Pricing for the Arlo Ultra 2 starts at $1099 for the two-camera kit, $1499 for the three-camera kit, and $500 for an Ultra 2 add-on camera.

The full list of features:

  • 4K Video with HDR: Zoom in to see sharp details with 4K and HDR advanced image quality technologies
  • Auto Zoom and Tracking: Auto-focus on moving objects with clarity and detail

  • Weather-Resistant Design: Built to withstand heat, cold, rain or sun for seamless installation anywhere
  • Rechargeable Battery: Wire-free design boasts up to six months of battery life on one charge
