On November 30th, 2018, Arlo Technologies announced a new flagship home security camera that directly competes with Google’s Nest Cam IQ. In this Arlo Ultra 4K review, I’ll take a closer look at the new wire-free camera and see how it stacks up against the current technological leader in consumer home security cameras.

Comparison
Arlo Ultra (4.5/5)
Nest Cam IQ (4.3/5)
Arlo had pulled the new camera after early adopters filed complaints about its quality and performance. When the Arlo Ultra relaunched, I got to finally test it. After a few days of testing, I can report, that there are still software / firmware issues the company needs to iron out.
