Arlo Pro 2 vs. Ring Stick Up Cam— What’s Different?

Arlo Pro 2

Field of View – Arlo Pro 2 impresses us with it’s 130° field of view, vs. Ring’s 110° horizontal & 57° vertical measurements, offering a far better view of your property and the ability to better identify any suspicious activity.

24/7 Recording – Arlo Pro 2 also offers us the option of 24/7 recording which allows you to continually monitor your property for an extra sense of security.

Unfortunately, Ring Stick Up Cam doesn’t include this feature.

Local Storage – Additionally, Arlo Pro 2 provides users with local storage via its base, so we don’t lose any important footage during a power or internet outage.

While Stick Up Cam has no local backup storage available.

Base Station & Siren – In order to set up your Arlo Pro 2, you’ll need to have the Arlo Base Station. The base station also includes other useful features such as an in-built siren & local storage.

While Ring Stick Up Cam works straight away out of the box, and its siren is located within the camera itself.

Subscription – Both models include a subscription plan. The Ring includes two plans, Protect Basic which includes the ability to record off of live view, as well have 60 days of cloud storage.
While Ring Protect Plus includes video recording & sharing, as well as storage for all your Ring devices.

Arlo Pro 2 includes two subscription plans called Arlo Smart, as well as 7-days of free cloud storage to take advantage of.

The entry plan provides you with the person detection technology, cloud activity zones for motion detection, as well as access to rich notifications.

While the Premier Plan includes all the same additions from the entry one, as well as 30 additional days of storage and the ability to use up to 10 Arlo cameras rather than 5.

Power Options – While both models come with similar powering options such as the optional solar panel addition, Arlo Pro 2 can both be used as a wireless battery camera or plugged via AC cable for continuous power.

While with Ring Stick Up Cam you’ll have to choose from Ring Stick Up Cam Battery or Ring Stick Up Cam Plug-In and then get other power accessories if needed.
