Exclusive: Netgear Launches Bring-Your-Own-Service for Arlo Go Cellular Cameras
Netgear launched the Arlo Go cellular camera with AT&T, but now supports multiple carriers via swappable SIM cards. At ISC West, Netgear revealed Arlo Mobile, the company’s own cell plan.
Last year Netgear released Arlo Go, an outdoor camera with cellular service provided by AT&T. Now the mobile device works with multiple cell services — just add your own SIM card.
The big news at ISC West 2017 is that Netgear plans to launch its own white-labeled cell service called Arlo Mobile.
Powered by AT&T, Arlo Mobile is a simpler way for customers to get Arlo Go online — no messing with SIM cards and third-party service providers. Just buy the camera and subscribe through the Arlo app.
Service will sold by the minute on a monthly basis, says senior product manager Oleg Fishel. He provided pricing to CE Pro:
- $4.99 for 15 minutes
- $19.99 for 120 minutes
- $29.99 for 225 minutes
The IP65-rated camera itself retails for $490. It features two-way audio, “advanced” motion detection and night vision.
Telguard Integrates with Arlo Go
Also at ISC, Telguard, provider of cellular and SHaaS (smart home as a service) solutions for the security industry, announced integration with Arlo Go.
Just slide the Telguard SIM card in Arlo and it will appear in the smart-home interface like any other camera on the network.
