ATLANTA, Feb. 01, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Telguard, a leader in wireless alarm communications, interactive and home automation services, and NETGEAR®, Inc. (NASDAQ:NTGR) (www.netgear.com), a global networking company that delivers innovative products to consumers, businesses and service providers, today announced a partnership to bring the Arlo™ wire-free video system to the security market. Comprised of the flexible, award-wining and easy to install Arlo Wire-free HD Camera and the Arlo Base Station, the Arlo Video System is supported by Telguard’s industry renowned customer support team. Arlo can be used as a stand-alone video system or it can be quickly integrated with Telguard’s HomeControl Flex™ interactive solution.
Waterproof and easy to install, the Arlo Wire-free HD Camera provides a different point of view for end users. Unlike traditional outdoor video cameras that need to be tethered to power, the Arlo camera gives integrators and end users a new freedom of installation. Its completely wire-free design allows it to be quickly installed in a tree, on a fence, under a gutter, or anywhere within the range of the base station. Being freed from needing a power outlet provides the opportunity for a new perspective and wider-range of view. With more installation options, dealers and integrators will find it easier to upsell video at every customer site.
“NETGEAR has a proven, wildly successful consumer solution in the Arlo camera. We recognized that its flexibility, ease of installation and ability to integrate with HomeControl Flex make it a valuable solution for the professionally installed security market,” said Shawn Welsh, SVP, Product Line Management and Marketing, Telular Corporation. “The fact that it is wire-free reduces installation time to minutes and gives dealers and integrators the ability keep an eye on their entire property rather than just basic front or back door.”
The Arlo video system brings a much needed Telguard supported video option to the HomeControl Flex interactive platform. Together, HomeControl Flex and Arlo enable remote viewing of security event triggered clips and livestreaming video to smartphones, computers or tablets.
“We are always looking for ways to increase the value we offer to our customers. With 2016 being the year of the sunset, we are excited to offer Arlo video with Telguard’s HomeControl Flex as an incentive to our customers to upgrade their security systems,” said Mike Putman, Director of Operations at Ackerman Security. “NETGEAR is a well-respected consumer brand and with Arlo’s outstanding features this joint solution couldn’t have come soon enough.”
The Arlo Video System allows security dealers and integrators to offer an outdoor HD video solution that is very low maintenance and easy to install in less than ten minutes. Once set up, the end user can easily relocate it to get a different point of view as needed. Exceptional Wi-Fi performance and night vision make it easy to see what’s happening at any time of the day or night. Up to five Arlo Wire-free cameras can be added to a HomeControl Flex system for no monthly service fee.
“We are excited to have partnered with Telguard who is on the forefront of combining consumer innovation and professionally installed security systems,” said Pat Collins, Vice President of Smart Home Products at NETGEAR. “By leveraging Telguard’s long-standing relationships with security dealers and distributors we are able to bring the professionally installed security market a best in class video solution that eliminates many of the challenges of traditional outdoor video solutions.”
The Arlo Video System is available in mid-February at security distributor locations that carry Telguard products.
