Why we like it: Along with its great hardware and fast response times, the Arlo Video Doorbell was the only model we tested that could distinguish among people, animals, vehicles, or packages. This meant it also kept false alerts—a problem with many models—to a minimum. That advanced sensing and the ability to capture video clips up to five minutes long require a $3 monthly Arlo Secure subscription, but we think these features are essential, and the price is fair (otherwise you’re restricted to motion/bell alerts and live video streaming). Local storage cuts out that monthly fee, but also the advanced motion detection features. The Arlo also captures crisp video, with a 1536×1536 resolution and a wide, 180-degree viewing angle in a square format: This provides a comprehensive vertical and horizontal view of what’s going on in front of your door, whether it’s deliveries or visiting raccoons.
