Trusted Reviews Awards 2017: Netgear Arlo Pro takes smart home win

The Netgear Arlo Pro security camera has won the Trusted Reviews’ best smart home award.

The Netgear Arlo Pro beat off stiff competition from the Google Home, Ikea Smart Lighting, Sonos One and LightwaveRF Home Automation to secure the win.

It scored an impressive 4.5/5 in our review by offering security-conscious buyers superb image quality, a reliable stream connection, weather-proof design, easy set-up process and excellent-value cloud storage subscriptions.

As summarised by reviewer Michael Passingham: “The Arlo ecosystem is one of the finest out there for hardcore home-security aficionados. The Arlo Pro fits into the company’s offering very nicely indeed, offering a reliable and long-lasting outdoor camera that won’t fail at the first sign of moisture. Along with a good app and great-value subscription options, it’s an excellent buy.”
