Amazon is offering the Arlo Essentials Wired Video Doorbell for $125 shipped. Normally offered at $150, this 17% discount, while not being the lowest price we’ve seen, is the lowest price we’ve tracked this year. Connecting to your existing doorbell wiring for power, the Arlo Video Doorbell works with Alexa, Assistant, SmartThings, and HomeKit with an Arlo SmartHub. Communicate with the delivery person with 2-way audio and pre-recorded messages. While it is not required to pay for the Arlo Secure Plan, a 3-month subscription is included with purchase and unlocks features such as 30 days of cloud storage, object detection (person, vehicle, animal, etc), active monitoring zones, emergency response, and more. With a full 180 degrees field of view, you won’t miss anything with the Arlo Wired Video Doorbell. Be sure to check out our review of the previous generation here for an idea of what to expect.
If you don’t need a video feed from your front door but would like some smart functionality, check out Arlo’s Audio Doorbell for $36. One of the downsides of this solution is the requirement for the Arlo Base Station for the doorbell to work. Without needing to connect to your existing wiring (unless you have an existing chime box you’d like to use), the Audio Doorbell allows you to answer your door from anywhere without having to come to the door. You can respond with pre-recorded messages or with 2-way communication.
