Nest vs. Arlo: Which is better?

Home security is one of the top priorities in everyone’s mind, and knowing what’s happening around our beloved paradise is of the utmost importance. Fortunately, there are hundreds of top-notch security cameras available to us. However, choosing the right product can often prove to be a hurdle. Today we are going to compare between two of the leading security cameras available on the market.

The installation process is one of the first things that come to our mind before picking a security camera. Both the security cameras have a simple and straightforward installation process. However, Arlo is completely wireless, making it must faster and easier to install than its counterpart. While on the other hand Nest requires a wired setup with a power source, which makes the installation process slightly lengthy. Design and aesthetics are also very important when it comes to picking a security camera. After-all, we all want our homes to look beautiful, and especially the camera that’s looking after our home for us. Both cameras come with an elegant design and are very portable, allowing you to fit them anywhere you want.

Now let’s talk about features! Both Arlo and Nest comes with state of the art technology and features like Cloud Storage, Nightvision, and many others. Arlo has some exclusive features like being completely wireless, rechargeable batteries, Smart Siren feature and many other additional benefits. Nest is not behind Arlo in any way and offers its own unique features like 1080p HD Video, Motion Zones, and 24×7 On-demand video.

Both Arlo and Nest can be managed using their own Mobile application, and these applications come with with a lot of useful and modern features. Arlo mobile application comes with three different modes: Armed, Disarmed and Geofencing, and while armed, the camera records any detected movement and sends it to your smartphone. While on the other hand, Geofencing tracks your phone and when you leave the vicinity of your house, it activates the motion sensors and other security features. Nest also has a very stylish and sophisticated mobile application, which allows you to change the quality of the video feed, or to turn it on and off on its own. The Nest app also has a Home/Away assist system, which is very similar to Arlo’s Geofencing mode.

Customer care and support is also another major concern when it comes to picking a product. Luckily for us, both Arlo and Nest are leading brands and both of them have their own excellent customer care and support teams. To sum it up, both cameras have their own advantages and amazing features, and anyone buying them will definitely be satisfied by their performance.
