Arlo Technologies is a home automation company, which makes wireless security cameras. Arlo was considered a brand by Netgear, prior to its initial public offering on the New York Stock Exchange in August 2018.[5]

As of February 2019, Arlo Pro[6] has shipped 11.7 million devices with 2.85 million registered users which generates on average in excess of 88 million daily video streams.[7]


On February 6 2018, Netgear made the announcement that the Board of Directors unanimously approved the separation of its Arlo business from Netgear. During the second quarter of 2018, Netgear's Arlo unit became a holding of Arlo Technologies, Inc. Arlo issued less than 20% of its common stock in the IPO, allowing Netgear to hold majority control.[8]

Matthew McRae currently serves as Arlo's CEO. Matthew joined Netgear in October 2017 taking the position as SVP of Strategy.[9]


The original Arlo Security Camera,[10] was released in the fourth quarter of 2014 on Amazon and at Best Buy.[4] The Arlo Security Camera is a battery-operated Wi-Fi security camera with 720p HD video quality, IP65-rated weather resistance and night vision.[11] The camera also has a passive infrared motion sensor, which, when activated, records a video of the motion event and notifies the user on their mobile device. As of the second quarter in 2015, Arlo had shipped over 100,000 Security Camera devices.[4] Arlo also makes variations of the device, including a portable and a baby monitoring version.[12] The newest addition, Arlo Ultra,[13] is also a battery operated Wi-Fi security camera with 4k HDR (High Dynamic Range) video, enhanced night vision, 180° panoramic view, integrated spotlight, and a noise cancellation feature.[14] This camera also has an auto-zoom and tracking feature which adjusts to movement, focusing its frame on whatever is moving. The data from the image sensors are analyzed frame-to-frame and if no movement is detected then nothing is transmitted to the base station. Arlo cameras are designed to use low power during normal "scan" mode.[15]

Current products ranging from wire free cameras, mobile cameras, AC-powered cameras, baby monitors, lights and door-bells.[16].


Arlo manufacturing is outsourced to Foxconn, Sky Light Industrial, and Delta Networks.[4]
