Arlo Europe today launches its latest device, the Arlo Essential Spotlight Camera. Available from September 7th, the new camera allows users to cover their basic security needs, with clear video recording and motion notifications direct to their smartphone. 100% wire-free, the Arlo Essential is simple and easy to install in minutes – connecting directly to W-Fi with no base station needed, for straight forward property protection.


Cover the basics without compromise

The wireless camera features a 130-degree field of view and clear 1080p HD video resolution. An integrated spotlight allows for vibrant colour night vision, so you can keep an eye on what matters most, day and night. 

Connect and control from your phone 

The Arlo Essential connects to a smartphone and will trigger instant notifications if the camera spots movement, so users can quickly take action. A built-in speaker and microphone allow users to talk and listen to visitors via the app, while a siren to deter intruders can be triggered remotely or set to sound automatically when motion is detected. 

Simple installation for straightforward protection

100% wire-free, the Essential Spotlight Camera is easy to install in a range of locations with just a few screws, for no-fuss, 24/7 peace of mind. Connect directly to Wi-Fi within the app or choose to pair with an Arlo base station for more secure, extended range connectivity and enhanced battery management. Weather-resistant with a rechargeable battery that lasts up to 6-months, the Arlo Essential can also be paired with a solar panel for continuous recharging and 365-day protection. 

Enhanced SMART protection tailored to you

Like all Arlo cameras, the Essential Spotlight can be paired with a monthly Arlo SMART subscription for as little as 30p a day, to unlock enhanced protection and gain access to premium security features including:  

  • AI-powered notification that detects and differentiates between a person, vehicle or animal 
  • Package Detection so you can see items as they’re picked up and delivered to your door
  • Cloud Recording that allows 30-day video history and storage which lets customers keep important videos safe, so they can look back through them or share them with law enforcement should they need to 
  • The ability to create Activity Zones to highlight specific areas you want alerts from
  • Rich Notifications that allow you to view clips on your smartphone’s lock screen and take immediate action


With an RRP of £129.99, the Arlo Essential Spotlight Camera is available from 7th September on Amazon, and other authorised Arlo resellers.
