Top customer reviews

I owned both Arlo Pro and Blink XT. Depending on your needs, I would highly recommend Blink XT
Pros
(a) Intermittent internet due to power outages. The Blink would recover and immediately syn-up with the base station rather quickly. For Arlo Pro, it would some time be a trial-and-error process requiring multiple reset to the base station or even the router/modem.
(b) Blink had almost flat in construction and has a very small foot print. That would mean you could install the Blink practically almost every wear.
(c) The Blink's two 'AA' size battery life was far superior to that Arlo Pro's rechargeable batteries. Depending on the level of trigger detection around your house, Arlo Pro rechargeable battery's life typical ranged from short 3 weeks to slightly more than a month for outside installation. Batteries life worsen in cold weather.
(d) Blink was far more cost-effective and cheaper than Arlo Pro. Arlo Pro was just way more expensively.
(e) The support on Arlo Pro is typically via the forum online and is generally poor in my view. You can call the customer support line during your 90 warranty period. However, I'm not sure if they charge any fees after 90 days warranty period.


Cons
(a) Blink had a field of view of 110 degree whereas the Arlo Pro had a 130 degree field of degree.
(b) Depending on your sensitivity of motion trigger adjustment, Arlo Pro was able to capture more motion detection more accurately than the Blink. That being said, Blink is generally okay for general motion triggers like birds fly across and delivery man.
(c) Subjectively, I felt that the image quality on Arlo Pro was clearer than Blink. However, both were generally good.

Both Blink and Arlo Pro are very good motion-triggered surveillance products in that both were able to survive typical cold weather temperature in the snow. Both provide free cloud storage up to certain number of camera. Check their respective website for more information. In terms of cost, I would certainly recommend the Blink XT to Arlo Pro. I hope my review would be helpful to those deciding between Blink XT and Arlo Pro. On another note, I would not recommend the older series Arlo wire-free.
