Arlo is one of the biggest names in home security, and it's not without reason. The company has a long history of making high-quality security systems and cameras that pack a slew of features into a small frame, but they sometimes come with pretty high price tags. The good news? Right now, you can save up to 50%, thanks to Amazon's early Memorial Day deals.

More than 10,000 shoppers gave this video doorbell a flawless five-star rating; it's wired, so no need to worry about it losing its charge.

Video doorbells are one of the easiest (and best) ways to improve your home security. After all, the front door is the most common avenue of entry into the home, and this Arlo Video Doorbell can keep an eye on what's happening thanks to its 180-degree field of view. A combination of high-definition video and HDR ensures the image will be clear at all times, even if there's a glare.

"Seriously, this product is incredible! It was my first time installing a wired video doorbell and it could not have been easier. Arlo provides you with all of the video and instructions that you need! I feel safe and secure in my home because of this product!" one homeowner said.

This video doorbell has most of the features as the above option, except it doesn't require a hardwired connection.

If you don't have an existing doorbell but you still want smart security for your front door, don't worry: the wire-free version of the Arlo Essential Video Doorbell is also on sale for 50% off. It has basically the same specs as its wired cousin, but it can be put up anywhere and uses a rechargeable battery.

One user was so impressed they had to buy more cameras. "We've not had any porch pirates or vandalism but ordered and installed this to be on the safe side. Looked at many doorbell cameras and narrowed it down to the Ring and this Arlo. The deciding factor was that the Arlo shows above the person's head AND the floor. The Ring showed above the person's head and down to above the ankles. Both had exceptional images and features but I liked the extra coverage. area. Going to order 9 Arlo wireless cameras to go around our home."

Between the 1080p video, night vision and two-way audio, this pint-sized camera is a force to be reckoned with.

After the front door, the next step is putting up cameras inside your home. The Arlo Essential Indoor Camera does this job exceedingly well, with high-quality video and powerful privacy features. There is an actual, physical shutter on the camera that snaps into place when it's not in use; you don't have to worry about whether it's secretly spying on you.

"I set up two of these in my home to monitor the common living area. Thanks to the wide view angle two cameras was more than enough to cover every window in the area simultaneously," one fan said. "The cameras are also located out of reach near the ceilings, so the integrated, automated lens cover (which makes it very obvious whether the camera is capturing video or not) is a much-appreciated privacy feature. Combined with very easy setup and a nice monitoring software, I would easily recommend these as an easy, cost effective indoor monitoring option."

A 130-degree field of view means that every angle will be covered.

Outdoor security is just as important, and few cameras are as tough as the Arlo Essential Spotlight Camera. Not only do these include a spotlight that enables the camera to have color night vision, but they also improve clarity of images at night. These cameras capture video at 1080p resolution and utilize a rechargeable battery for power.

"We were looking to add a couple of cameras to our farm to keep an eye on the gate and cars pulling up to the house. I have to admit these new Arlo Essential Spotlight cameras are slick! Connection was easy to my existing Arlo Pro 2 station, adding the cameras to my list of available cameras, and including them in alerts, all super easy! Picture quality is great. The small spot light does a good job of lighting the area for better image quality and contrast. Highly recommend," one customer said.
