Ensure Home Safety and Security with the Arlo by Netgear

Arlo by Netgear

I have been wanting a security system, but thinking of affording a good one was not in my budget since we’re remodeling the house and the children are always needing something, especially my nine year old fourth grader. There’s always something that he needs for school. That’s why I was ecstatic when I was selected to review the NETGEAR Arlo Smart Home Indoor/Outdoor Wireless High-Definition Security Cameras (4-Pack) ($499.99) and the NETGEAR Nighthawk DST AC1900 Wireless-AC Gigabit Router with DST Adapter ($299.99). Both products are exclusively sold at Best Buy.

Everything was an effortless breeze to install since my moms fiancé is a carpenter. He’s meticulous with carpentry, electrical and plumbing. Therefore, the task came easy for him.

I’ve always wanted to feel safe when I enter into my house, but I also want to feel that our valuables are safe from thieves. This time of the year, during the hustle and bustle of holiday preparations, it is so important to think about security. I like securing our home during and after the holidays. Now, all entry points after guests depart will be secured by the cameras to keep our family and valuables safe. The NETGEAR Arlo Smart Home Indoor/Outdoor Wireless High-Definition Security Cameras give us the peace of mind that we need.

I know that we can always let our neighbor know if we are just away, whether we’re out of town or on vacation so they can keep an eye on our home. We can also stop mail delivery and add timers to our indoor lights, but the security camera system makes me feel more secure. We can now keep an eye on our place from anywhere, anytime with the smart home security system. I feel even more safer since we can keep tabs on our home front from any internet-connected computer or smartphone!
