Arlo today unveiled its all-new Arlo Pro 3 Floodlight, the first wire-free variant of the camera on the market. Chosen as a CES 2020 Innovation Award Honoree, the device includes a variety of features that help identify who or what is outside a user's home or business.

Arlo FloodlightCam CIA 2
The Pro 3's powerful LEDs illuminate a wide area and can be activated by motion or manually using the Arlo iOS app, from which users can zoom in on objects and see clear details and colors in 2K HDR, live or as recorded video.

Thanks to a dedicated ambient light sensor, the floodlight camera can also automatically measure the amount of surrounding light and dynamically adjust brightness accordingly, which has the added benefit of conserving battery life.

The camera has a 160-degree diagonal field of view, as well as color night vision with the option to see in traditional black and white, while two-way audio allows users to speak to and hear visitors.

A built-in smart siren can be manually triggered remotely or automatically during an event, and users can customize the floodlight and camera settings to suit. The camera is also powered by a long-lasting rechargeable battery for wire-free convenience.

The Arlo Pro 3 Wire-Free Floodlight Camera will be available to purchase in Spring 2020 at an MSRP of $249.99.

What makes HomeKit a make or break feature?
1. Security
2. Compatibility
3. Ecosystem Agnostic
4. Core iOS integration

I really wish MR would start tagging these IoT devices with “HomeKit” or “Non-HomeKit” when referring to hardware by name. Having an iOS app is no longer sufficient for Apple relevance.

Yup. Homekit is a must for me now. If I hadn't bought Nests a long time ago, I would be switching to Ecobees which work with Homekit
I started my smart home setup with Amazon Echos, a Nest thermostat, Blink cameras, and a Ring doorbell and Ring Floodlight cam. Shortly after I installed my Nest thermostat, Google purchased Nest.

I am a big fan of the Homekit ecosystem because of Apple's emphasis on privacy and I have now replaced all my Echos with HomePods, my Blink cameras with Homekit compatible Eufy 2C cameras w/ local storage (soon to be Homekit Secure Video compatible) and an Ecobee 3 Lite (no Alexa) thermostat. My next project is to replace my Ring Doorbell and Floodlight cam as soon as Eufy (or someone else) releases a Homekit compatible versions. From now on I am not buying any IoT devices unless they are truly Homekit compatible (not just an iOS app).

Homekit?
I would assume so. All the other Arlos today have it.

Do they let law enforcement view my camera recorded and/or live like Ring?
Yes, just like Ring. So no, not live.

And just like any other camera, even non-internet-connected cameras.

I must say, the smear campaign against Ring was quite successful. Many people truly believe that law enforcement can just look at any Ring camera and recordings that they want, but it’s simply not true. Just like any other camera and recording, they can look at anything you explicitly allow them to. The only difference is that Ring has also provided a software platform to law enforcement to help them do it. So they can make a request for footage for specific cameras during a specific timeline and you will receive a notification via email and on the Ring Neighbors app. You can review all the footage and accept or reject the request. The request requires citing a case number of a crime that happened within 0.5 miles of your home and is limited to a 12 hour window. As far as the “they can keep it forever” scare, well yea, that’s common sense!

This is the same thing as an officer knocking on your door and politely asking you to share your footage from your CCTV cameras.
