If you need to upgrade your router, consider a recent Consumer Reports Best Buy, the Netgear model N750. Our surroundings feel much like we’re in the middle of nowhere, but we’re within a 5 minute drive of a college town with great restaurants and shopping.But, that doesn’t mean that we’re completely safe from crime and I love how our new Arlo home security system from Netgear allows us to keep an eye on the house outside, as well as what’s going on inside.
And if you have Wi-Fi, make sure your router is new enough.
Check the manufacturer’s website under technical specs to see that it supports the 802.11n standard.
The hotspot can connect up to ten devices so everyone, including a busy mom, can take advantage of the fast connection.
While portable hotspots are a dime a dozen, many of them are unreliable and flaky.
Whenever we hear a strange sound coming from her room, all we have to do is whip out our smart phones and we can tell exactly what she is up to.
Altogether, I can honestly say that the Arlo security system has given me peace of mind – and in comparison to what it cost, it has gone above and beyond. Designed for indoor or outdoor use, this HD camera system is weatherproof and entirely "wire-free" (other Wi Fi wireless security-cam systems above still require AC power connections).It is backed by a lifetime warranty, so Netgear must be confident about its reliability over the long haul.Overall, the FVS336Gv3 is certainly a performance upgrade over the older FVS336G.I also got this for really cheap at a yard sale for about 20$, if I remember correctly.This might sound strange but I am always looking for the best deals for used electronics at yard sales.Since we returned home from vacation, we still use our Arlo camera system every day.
