Arlo, a smart home accessory maker that sells an audio doorbell, appears to be working on a smart video doorbell.
We know this thanks to new images of the device that leaked online. Spotted by Zatz Not Funny and published by Arlo partner I-View Now, the images show Arlo’s lineup of products, including a yet-to-be-released video doorbell. There's even some specs to go along with this leak.
The new video doorbell will offer a 2-megapixel Full HD video quality, a wide field-of-view, and two-way audio. Arlo's video doorbell will also connect to existing digital and mechanical door chimes. But that's about all we know at this point. Pricing and a release date weren't revealed.
There's hope that the video doorbell will launch with HomeKit support, as Arlo is currently adding that support to its existing lineup. It has a growing range of security cameras, each offering something slightly different. There's the Arlo Ultra, Pro 2, Pro, and Arlo camera, all of which need a hub to connect to and all run through the same Arlo app, so you can mix and match your system.
