Arlo finally launches the Arlo Ultra, a wireless security camera capable of capturing 4K videos and more.
Starting March 25, the Arlo Ultra becomes widely available in the United States through retail stores like Best Buy. It also makes its way to Amazon for the first time. The company as well will start shipping the 4K wireless security camera across other regions worldwide.
New Firmware Updates
The device originally debuted on Best Buy in January this year. However, the company pulled back after it had received reports of problems plaguing the launch.
Those who were first to buy the Arlo Ultra said they experienced several reliability problems with Arlo Ultra. However, over the past few weeks, it appeared that Arlo sorted out all those issues when it rolled out a number of firmware updates.
The highlights of the most recent firmware changelog are the following, as reported by Android Police:
- Support Ultra relaunch, which includes several updates on stability, connectivity, and feature enhancement
- Update existing users' experience and provide new users with the latest out of box Arlo Ultra experience
