As with all Arlo cameras, Arlo Go offers a rolling seven (7) days of free cloud storage so you can record and review videos from the app. With Arlo Go’s advanced PIR motion sensor, you are alerted with near real-time notifications whenever an object enters the camera’s field of view. Through Arlo’s mobile and browser apps, you get a live, on demand view of the location as well as the ability to easily play previously recorded videos from nearly anywhere in the world. Two way audio allows the ability to hear and speak through the camera and Arlo’s advanced RGB-IR Night vision technology provides a clear picture of the scene, even in the dead of night. Arlo Go also comes equipped with a micro SD memory card* slot for easy local backup of video in the event of a network interruption.
