This allows you to place them basically anywhere, including outside.

The Arlo Pro feature instant motion alerts and with Arlo’s new smart siren it is easier to put a stop to a crime before it happens. Arlo Pro also includes advancements across all areas of wire-free camera technology including video quality, night vision, and activity detection.
