MacRumors Giveaway: Win a HomeKit-Compatible Arlo Pro 3 Camera System

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Arlo to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win an Arlo Pro 3 camera system that comes with two cameras and an Arlo SmartHub base station.

Priced at $499.99 for the two camera kit, the Arlo Pro 3 includes two wire-free cameras that can be placed anywhere inside or outside the home, both of which are controlled by the HomeKit-connected hub. More cameras can be added in the future for a whole-home security system, and setup is as simple and straightforward as any other HomeKit product.

The Arlo Pro 3 features a 2K ultra high definition resolution with a wide 160-degree viewing angle that allows for full visibility of an entire room or outdoor area. The camera has a six month battery life so there's no need to charge it regularly.

There's an integrated spotlight that you can set to come on to scare off would-be intruders, along with a loud siren sound. Both of these features can be set to be activated with motion or manually. You can also talk to people through the camera using two-way audio capabilities.

For when it's dark, there's a built-in night mode that displays full color night vision, a useful feature as many other similar cameras have a night mode that's just black and white. The Arlo Pro 3 cameras can be mounted anywhere with a magnetic mount, and there's also an included weatherproof magnetic charging cable. The weather-resistant camera design allows the Arlo Pro 3 to withstand heat, cold, rain, and sunlight.

The Arlo cameras come with a three free month Arlo Smart trial, which provides personalized notifications, advanced people detection, cloud activity zones, and offers a 30-day recording history. Arlo's plans start at $2.99 per month for a single camera.

Tried these out, so overpriced. Eufycams are identical but less than half the price. Plus Arlo doesn’t support HKSV so they can nickel and dime you for a subscription. Obviously won’t be so bad if you win and they’re free though :)

Has anyone considered a more discrete color for the case?

[USER=602138]@yanksfan114[/USER] thanks for the tip - gonna check out eufy!

Generally a security system that is seen by perps, is a more effective deterrent than a more discrete one that goes unnoticed.

That these things continue to to sell surprises me. if you're looking to see who's outside, or, if a package showed up, they might be OK. But, for security... Not so much. First problem is the batteries - going up and down ladders year round is not likely to be safe or convenient - sort of like those smoke detector batteries always failing at 2 a.m. or, when you left town for a week. Second problem is related to the first - the tendency would be to place them where they are easy to get to - which is good for bad guys too. Then there's the monitoring of any tampering that can take place; I've installed many systems were if you mess with the wiring, an alarm goes off - that you can't sleep through or ignore. Etc. If I won these, I'd probably leave them in the box and get rid of them. Just not, in the long run, much worth it to me. If you win 'em, good luck to you. I've seen them in the field... Not impressed beyond the slick marketing. Just saying...
