NETGEAR ARLO HD VIDEO SECURITY SYSTEM NOW WORKS EASILY WITH THIRD-PARTY RESIDENTIAL SECURITY SYSTEMS
Arlo and HomeControl Flex Integrate Video with Professionally Monitored Security
SAN JOSE, Calif. — February 1, 2016 — NETGEAR®, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTGR), (www.netgear.com), a global networking company that delivers innovative products to consumers, businesses and service providers, today announced that the NETGEAR Arlo™ Wire-Free Security System with HD Cameras (www.arlo.com) is now easily integrated with Telguard’s interactive home security solution, HomeControl Flex™. HomeControl Flex uses Arlo to enable remote viewing of security panel event-triggered clips, as well as live high-definition video streaming to smartphones, computers or tablets.
Arlo is the first 100 percent wireless WiFi security camera with crystal-clear, high definition video. Monitor your home from every possible angle, inside or out, with these outdoor-ready cameras that are equipped with night vision to give you HD video around the clock. The combination of easy installation, battery-operated true wireless design, and weatherproof construction provides you with the ability to set up a camera wherever you want, without worrying about finding a power outlet or the hassle of inconvenient power cords.
HomeControl Flex, a universal interactive solution that works with virtually all professionally monitored security systems, enables you to remotely arm, disarm, and receive security system notifications via your smartphone. Additionally, with HomeControl Flex and the powerful automation capabilities of IFTTT, you can also enable interconnections with hundreds of consumer products and services.
“We are excited to team with Telguard, the leader in universal cellular alarm communications accessories and interactive security services, who is on the forefront of combining innovative consumer products and professionally monitored security systems,” said Pat Collins, vice president of NETGEAR Smart Home Products. “We know customers value a flexible and expandable video solution, and now with Telguard and HomeControl Flex, we can extend the existing capabilities of Arlo to professionally monitored home security systems.”
The HomeControl Flex interactive solution can be added to almost any existing home security system with the addition of a Telguard accessory, which is sold and installed by home security professionals. It not only enables HomeControl Flex and Arlo capabilities but also replaces the landline path between the home and monitoring center with more secure cellular technology.
“The installation flexibility and HD quality of the award-winning Arlo wire-free video system made it a natural fit with HomeControl Flex. Collaborating with NETGEAR, a leader in delivering innovative consumer products, enables us to redefine the role that video plays in a professionally monitored security system,” said Shawn Welsh, SVP, Product Line Management and Marketing, Telular Corporation. “It is NETGEAR and Telguard’s commitment to delivering best-in-class products and customer service that makes our combined solution one of a kind.”
To integrate Arlo with a security panel, contact your local security dealer and request a Telguard cellular accessory that supports HomeControl Flex, such as the Telguard TG-1 Express.
