Aside from Christmas and Black Friday, Prime Day is our favorite shopping holiday of the year, which is why we’re thrilled that Amazon decided to throw a second Prime Day event this year. Happening on October 11 and 12, the Prime Day Early Access Sale is meant to give Prime members early access to the hottest holiday deals from Amazon.

During previous Prime Days, particularly in July 2022 and June 2021, Arlo was one of the best-selling security camera brands. Let’s take a look at Arlo’s previous Prime Day offerings in anticipation for Prime Day October.

Arlo July Camera Prime Day 2022 Deals

Arlo makes a handful of security cameras, and many of them went on sale the previous Prime Day in July of this year. Better still, Arlo’s deals weren’t all Prime-exclusive, so non-Prime members also benefited from the discounts, which lowered the prices of Arlo cameras by up to 35-percent. For instance, sets of two Arlo Essential Spotlight cams sold for only $169.99, down from $259.99.

Check out these other Arlo deals from the July Prime Day event, all of which were up for grabs for Prime and non-Prime members alike.

Arlo Product Discount Prime Day Price
Arlo Essential Indoor 20% $79.99
Arlo Essential Spotlight (1-camera kit) 27% $94.99
Arlo Essential Spotlight (3-camera kit) 29% $249.99
Arlo Pro 4 (1-camera kit) 15% $169.99
Arlo Pro 4 (2-camera kit) 16% $318.44
Arlo Pro 4 (3-camera kit) 27% $399.99
Arlo Pro 3 Floodlight 23% $192.97
Arlo Ultra 2 (2-camera kit) 20% $479.99
Arlo Ultra 2 (add-on camera) 17% $249.99

It’s worth noting that buying in bulk seems to be the best way to save more. For instance, the deal on the three-camera set of Arlo Pro 4 cameras saves you $150, while buying three Arlo Pro 4 cameras individually only yields $90 in savings. It’s important, then, to take stock of what Arlo cameras you need before buying. Our review of the full Arlo lineup can help you with that.

What We Can Learn From Previous Arlo Prime Day Deals

Offering its best-selling products at a discount seems to be Arlo’s running theme for Prime Day. In 2021, the Arlo Pro 2, Arlo Pro 3, Arlo Pro 4, Arlo Essential Spotlight, and Arlo Video Doorbell could each be had for up to $80 off. The wired Arlo Video Doorbell we reviewed, for instance, is already a solid buy at $149.99, but Arlo’s Prime Day deal dropped its price to below $100. On Prime Day October, keep an eye out for deals on the Arlo Essential Indoor and Essential Spotlight.

Going back further, in 2020 (which was coincidentally the year Amazon moved Prime Day to October due to the pandemic), Arlo Utra made a surprise appearance on Arlo’s list of Prime Day deals. It was 53 percent off, or about $200 lower than its original price, which was surprising given that it’s one of Arlo’s most premium cameras, as we noted in our Arlo Ultra review.  That’s another thing to monitor during the Prime Day Early Access Sale: Arlo’s more expensive cameras offered at discounts.

Lastly, keep an eye on deals involving older cameras from Arlo, such as the Arlo Pro 2 and 3. Those may have been around longer than other Arlo cameras, but they still perform incredibly well. Both cameras are no longer offered by Arlo, but we still see third-party Amazon sellers listing the cameras. Just be sure to check the sellers’ reviews and ratings before buying from them.

Current Arlo Pricing on Amazon

Arlo has a pretty large store on Amazon, with tons of cameras, camera systems, and accessories available. We listed Arlo’s current pricing on Amazon (MSRP) here for your reference, in case you want to hunt deals on your own.

Cameras and Packages Pricing

Arlo offers systems with one, two, or three cameras, some of which require hubs. But their latest cameras, the Essential and Floodlight cameras, don’t need any hubs whatsoever, saving you money. We’re expecting more hubless cameras in the future as Arlo launches new indoor cameras and outdoor cameras. Arlo often makes our list of the best indoor cameras and the best outdoor cameras, so we always anticipate new releases from the brand.

Accessories Pricing

Most of the accessories relate to either mounting or powering one of Arlo’s many wireless cameras (they make some of the best wireless cameras, by the way). If you’re new to the security camera game, learn how to install security cameras and how to place security cameras for maximum impact.

FYI: All Arlo cameras are DIY installation only, so you won’t have to spend money on professional installation. Learn more about the differences between DIY vs. professional home security.

Security cameras aren’t the only things you can save on this Prime Day October. Because this is an Amazon Prime-exclusive shopping holiday, expect to see big discounts on the Echo Show and other Amazon-branded smart home and security products. We anticipate huge Ring video doorbell Prime Day deals as well. That’s a great thing for Arlo users too, since Arlo works with a number of smart home brands. For example, you can use an Echo Show to view your Arlo outdoor camera videos live from the comfort of your couch simply by telling Alexa to show you your front yard. And since Arlo’s video doorbell offering is quite limited for now, you can pick up a Ring video doorbell to pair with Alexa and, by extension, Arlo cameras. Maybe this will inspire you to build out your smart home!

Even though Arlo is one of the best home security camera brands out there, you may want to check out other security camera Prime Day Early Access deals. Read about the best Nest camera Prime Day deals, Ring camera Prime Day deals, and Blink camera Prime Day deals, which include the Blink Mini indoor camera.

What Is Prime Day and Prime Day Early Access Sale?

Prime Day is an annual two-day shopping event from Amazon for Prime members only. Historically, it occurs around the second week of July, but we’ve seen Amazon move the date around in the past couple of years due to the pandemic. In 2020, at the height of the lockdown, Amazon moved Prime Day to October 13 and 14, and last year, they held the event a bit earlier, on June 21 and 22. Prime Day 2022 was back to its usual calendar slot: July 12 and 13.

On the other hand, the Prime Day Early Access Sale is kind of a spinoff of the mid-year Prime Day event. It’s meant to give Prime members an early chance to enjoy holiday deals. Remember, the first-ever Prime Day Early Access Sale is happening on October 11 and 12, 2022.

Although the dates moved around the past couple of years, one thing remained the same: Prime Day was Amazon’s largest shopping event. In 2020, Amazon sold more than 175 million products, and last year, that figure grew to over 250 million.1

The most popular purchase from Prime members around the world was the Echo Dot smart speaker, which is similar to the Echo Dot With Clock that we’ve tested out personally. Other bestselling items included coffee beans, diapers, mouthwash, and lightbulbs — you know, the essentials.2

The first Amazon Prime Day sale was on July 15, 2015, Amazon’s 20th birthday. Rather than being global, it was only available in Austria, France, Germany, Canada, Italy, Spain, Japan, the U.S., and the U.K. Later, it became a two-day event, with twice the savings available to Prime members all across the globe.3

Summary

Prime Day is a great time to save, and with October Prime Day upon us, we can’t wait to see what kinds of deals and discounts await.

That said, Prime Day October won’t be the last big sale of the year. Black Friday and Cyber Monday are coming up next month, and holiday shopping deals will be available shortly after that. Learn more about security camera Black Friday deals here.
