When it comes to choosing the right smart camera for your home, there are a lot of factors to take note of such as video and audio quality, software, smart home integration, and local storage capabilities.
While a lot of smart cameras include attractive subscription plans, especially when it comes to cloud storage, it’s also useful to have the option of sufficient local storage as an option, if you prefer not to opt for any additional plans.
All these cameras feature local storage via a USB or an SD card. Please note that having local storage doesn’t necessarily mean that the cameras will record 24/7 to local storage. Most of the cameras will only record motion-triggered activities. If you’re looking for a continuous video recording to local storage make sure to check out our take on Top 5 Smart Continuous Video Recording Cameras where we break down cameras with local & cloud CVR support.

When comparing the Arlo Pro vs. Arlo Go, it’s clear that the two cameras have a lot in common; however, there are a good amount of differences between the models as well. If you’re looking for a camera for areas with no access to WiFi, the Arlo Go is the clear choice due to the LTE capabilities. Otherwise, the Arlo Pro is the clear winner.
When deciding between the two smart cameras, you’re essentially choosing between more robust features and the flexibility to monitor your home in areas without internet access. For the average house with an average wireless network, the Arlo Pro definitely has the edge. But when you find yourself trying to monitor a remote corner of your property that isn’t covered by your router, the benefits of the Arlo Go will become pretty clear!
