NETGEAR logoNETGEAR has announced extensions of its network camera and ReadyNAS families.

The VMC3040 Arlo Q 1080p HD Security Camera with Audio is a mains-powered version of NETGEAR’s popular wire-free Arlo network camera.

Since it doesn’t rely on batteries, Arlo Q provides 24 / 7 recording and can have motion detection zones set up. Other key differences from the original Arlo include two-way audio, wider field of view and 1080p HD image quality.

Arlo Q’s N600 class radio also connects to any Wi-Fi network and doesn’t require the base station the original Arlo requires. The new netcam comes with 7 days of free storage for motion-triggered clips.

The new NAS runs NETGEAR’s ReadyNAS OS 6.4.1 operating system based on the BTRFS filesystem that provides five levels of data protection, plus ReadyCLOUD personal cloud and a wide range of other business NAS features.
