They fit well, but are not entirely as the photo shows. Once the skins is fitted there is still a white edge on the front of the camera. The photos above show the edge as black, but that isn’t the case, the camera case is white. So when you look at the camera you see a white ring around the face. This seems to be a problem shared with the genuine arlo skins and the aftermarket ones too. I also notice the camera picks up the edge of the lens hood to, so you're picture become vignetted by the cover. I've also found that the 'hood' around the front of the camera affects the IR night vision; in that the hood seems to reflect the IR back at the camera lens, so you get a washed out flare effect on the lens, rather than a crisp black and white IR image. To resolve this, I've cut back the hood to within about 5mm of the camera body all the way round the front.
Bought these to make my Arlo Pro 2 cameras less noticeable on the front/rear of the house. That worked as expected.
The unexpected consequence of these hooded skins is that they cause IR reflection at night resulting in your camera pictures being foggy. These covers are not fit for purpose and I am surprised Netgear are still selling them.
I shall look at returning for a refund and replace with skins without the hooded element.
Ordered these as I was having issues with rain on the lenses and fogging in cold weather basically rendering the camera useless. I did look at the cheaper options as these are a little pricey in my opinion, however opted for these. They fit brilliantly are very good quality and most importantly work. The little hood stops the rain from running down over the lens, I'm not saying totally eliminates it in torrential rain but the recording is still of a good enough image to identify what's happening and dries off very quickly. It has eliminated the fogging. In regards to the night vision being affected, the 1st night I used them I got the 'glare' that some users have reported. This was down to me not pulling the skin fully back over the camera and by adjusting it so that the skin is not visible to the lens in camera positioning, this totally eliminated the issue. Spiders seem to love building webs over them on occasions.
Good for disguising cameras - white is a bit too obvious while with these skins the cameras practically disappear especially against a window. A fiddle to get on but I guess that's so they fit very snugly once installed.
Don’t fit arlo pro 2 properly, a white ring at night is present on the front. Also a black ring appears on daytime around the camera due to the hood being in front of the camera, wasn’t expecting such low quality fitting from arlo branded skins. Useless and expensive.
