To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Easy to use and fit especially suited for external fitting.
The round magnetic mounts that came with my Arlo Pro (3 cameras) are nice for inside use, and they did work outside but the angles that you can attach the camera to were limited in that you couldn't get exactly the right shot of what you wanted to be viewing.
Also i was worried that somebody may throw something at the camera to knock it off, although the magnets are strong.
So I purchased 3 of these and they were really easy to fit, and i could set them exactly how i wanted, although I made sure they were high enough off the ground so somebody couldn't unscrew them, but you can get some additional security attachments to make it more difficult to take off.
The brackets are solidly built and you can tighten the adjuster so it is really secure and wont change the angle unless you were to actually loosen it yourself.
So i would recommend these, as the quality is great, and the way you can position the cameras is so much better than the supplied ball magnetic ones.
Genuine Arlo mount which is well built and very sturdy. I have bought after market housings for my cams which should protect the cams from bad weather but it means I cannot use the original magnetic mounts which came with the system. I bought a similar looking cheaper mount to try but sadly it broke on first fitting because it would not support the weight and to get it tight meant I had to overtighten it. It was clearly made of inferior materials. These genuine Arlo mounts have posed no such problem and definately worth a few quid extra. After all, you wouldn't want your £150 plus camera to come crashing down would you? I have read some reviews from people who have slated these because of a rust issue? Well, the towers themselves are made of cast aluminium (wont rust) and the threaded part has to be made of steel to have strength. So, spray a little WD40 or similar oil on to the thread and shaft, wipe the excess off and you should have no problems. Do this a couple of times a year and you will ensure longevity of these mounts. Don't forget, anything we fix outside will be exposed to the good old British weather so a little bit of basic maintenance will go a long way. I can certainly recommend these mounts.
This is the first Arlo product i have been disappointed in. Mechanically the brackets are OK - and necessarily for most situations; however mine have badly rusted and have irreversibly stained the white Camera's. What a shame. I am getting more Camera's (love them), but i will looking for another way to mount them.
Zuerst war ich hellauf begeistert von dieser Halterung: + windstabil + sehr robust + simple Montage + Kamera kann dank dem weißen Schraubelement sehr fest fixiert werden
Nach fünf Monaten nun der Schock: Die Halterung rostet. Und das gleich an mehreren Stellen. Die Schrauben zeigen leichten Rostbefall, das Kugelgelenk ist komplett hinüber und der Part der nicht im Gewinde der Kamera war ebenso. Das Gewinde der Kamera ist nicht betroffen.
Für den Preis hätte ich mehr erwartet, zumal die Halterung auch noch teilweise geschützt ist.
These brackets are well made, strong and ideal for outside. They also allow me to drop the charging cable out of an upstairs window and plug into my Arlo Pro 2's without removing or disturbing the cameras (once every 6 weeks). Don't waste money on cheaper non-Arlo ones like I did!
Purchased to fit the ultra as the screw mount fits without issue. The two I bought are more chunky than those supplied with the camera set. More robust and heavy, but the plastic screw fixing on the screw mounts are poor quality. They do not even screw down the shaft correctly, and were cross threaded when new. If you need the item, then yes they work, but you feel short changed in paying the high cost for a poor made product.
Seems to be well made and is very easy to install. Suitable for both Arlo and Arlo Pro cameras. I am a little worried that the ease of fitting also makes the cameras vulnerable to theft. I just hope they snap a nice mug shot of the culprit if someone is tempted to do that.
