Home security can be an important thing to consider and these days it's really easier than ever as there are so many options out there for not only home security systems that are more affordable than before, but many of them are smart home security systems that make it really convenient to stay on top of what's going on at and around your home. Netgear's Arlo Pro Security System with Siren is one such option and right now you Amazon has a deal where you can pick up the system bundle that comes with a 5-pack of security cameras for just $$574, which is down from its original price of $820, as part of a deal for Cyber Monday. That said this is a deal that is only available for today.
Smart home products generally have their own smartphone companion apps with which you'll be able to monitor data and features, but a lot of the most popular brands and products from those brands will also support things like Google Assistant and Alexa, and Arlo works with both which means it will work with Google Home and Google Home Mini, as well as Amazon's line of Echo speakers. Because of this support you'll be able to speak to the Arlo system through those digital assistant-powered speakers and do things like view your live video feed with a voice command.
The cameras all have built-in mics with speakers for 2-way audio so you can see and hear and talk to the people on the other end o the camera. For example if you're away from home and a delivery person or a friend or family member shows up at your door and you have one of the cameras set up there, you can view the feed on your phone and then speak to them through the application, which can be useful if you need to tell someone where a spare key is hidden, or let the delivery person know they can just leave the package at the door. Whether you or someone you know would use the Arlo as your first smart security system for the home or an upgrade from an existing system it makes a great gift, plus with five cameras you can ensure that just about all of the home is covered so you can see everything you want or need.
