We hope you enjoy these cameras and build incredible flows with Stringify.

The idiom “A picture is worth a thousand words” refers to the notion that a complex idea can be conveyed with just a single still image or that an image of a subject conveys its meaning or essence more effectively than a description does.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then surely video must speak volumes. Unlike a single image, video allows us to visualize complex ideas in the context of time, it brings richness, movement and depth that only video can.

Video can entertain, keep us safe and store our memories. The future of video is profound. While we will continue to see advances in video quality such as bit rate and resolution, advances in deep learning (a new area of machine learning research) and novel algorithms for manipulating video will reveal things in video that were previously impossible.

Clearly, cameras are no longer stand alone devices; they are part of a broader ecosystem of connected devices known as the Internet of Things. Working with other connected devices and services, you can now build rich, meaningful experiences that matter to you.

One of our partners that understands this transformation well is NETGEAR. NETGEAR offers a line of connected cameras known as Arlo.

Some of the Arlo security cameras are wire-free and even weather-proof so you have greater flexibility of where and how you use them. Need one in the attic, or the basement, or outside the house? That’s not a problem with Arlo.

In addition to the Arlo Wire-free HD Security Camera models, Arlo offers the Arlo Q and the Arlo Q Plus. These wired (AC powered) cameras capture video in 1080p high definition, and can include alerts for motion and sound. They support night vision, can be upgraded to record non-stop, 24/7, and the Arlo Q Plus model has local storage for backup and those rare moments when network connectivity is interrupted.

They all offer rolling 7 days of free cloud recordings as well as upgrade options.

Arlo is also announcing a brand-new camera called the Arlo Pro Wire-Free HD Security Camera. This new camera retains all the great Arlo Wire-free HD Security Camera features, but adds improved motion detection, 2-way audio, and a rechargeable battery in addition to night vision and weather-proof capability. Its two-way audio lets you communicate with people or pets through the speaker, or receive alerts if there is noise, using the built-in microphone. It has an increased motion sensing range now up to 23ft with near instantaneous detection. And if all that wasn’t enough, it has flexible power options including a rechargeable battery, a solar panel accessory (available in early 2017) that can continuously charge Arlo Pro’s rechargeable battery, or a plug-in AC powered option via a micro-USB connector on the camera. Finally, the base station has been updated with support for local storage backup via USB ports, and a 100+ decibel siren that you can control remotely.

These very capable cameras are impressive, but become even more amazing when coupled with Stringify. Stringify lets you build powerful, yet deceptively simple experiences (we call them Flows) that let you get much more from these cameras.

With Stringify you can select from over 600 things and services (and the list is growing every day), to make your Arlo cameras even more amazing.

Congratulations Brandy and Eric, we hope you enjoy your cameras and create some amazing experiences with Stringify.
