Arlo Video Doorbell vs Ring vs Eufy

What do you capture when a guest presses the Video doorbell button right in front of your door? Usually you do not fully see your guests body completely from toe to head, mostly only half the body to the head. What if a bad guy brings something dangerous right in front of the door so it doesn’t show up in your video?

Arlo provides the Arlo AVD1001 video doorbell solution with 1: 1 aspect ratio, giving a whole view on your video frame as wide as the horizontal or vertical sides so that you can clearly view the whole person in front of your door. You compare with other video doorbell in the market such as Ring and Eufy, we’ll compare the feature later. See also Amcrest video doorbell vs Ring.

What this product does

If you already have an existing doorbell wiring at home, then Arlo doorbell can use it without having to make a new doorbell wiring.

Arlo combines a doorbell as well as a video that recognizes who is coming right in front of your door, even just before the guest presses the doorbell you can get alerts received on your mobile device that detects the movement of people at your door who triggers your doorbell video to send snapshots of images from your guests in front of the door.

1:1 ratio

It has been discussed earlier that Arlo AVD1001 provides a 1: 1 aspect ratio that gives a full body view of who comes in front of the door from toe to head. Compare with Eufy which gives a 4: 3 aspect ratio or Ring which gives a 5: 3 ratio that probably cannot give the full figure of the person who comes in front of your door, maybe the legs are view is missing.

Resolution

Arlo designed this doorbell video camera with a different frame like a camera in general where horizontal is usually longer than vertical in landscape mode. However, considering that the person at your door is very close to the camera, in the normal position the body will be captured only halfway up and the legs are not captured. For this reason, Arlo designs the frame with a ratio of 1: 1 horizontal and vertical equal in length and resolution is 2.3MP ((1536×1536) maximum.

The competitor is Eufy with a 4: 3 ratio and higher resolution 2k (2560×1920) which is double the resolution given by Arlo and Ring which is only 2MP. With a resolution twice as high as Arlo then you can zoom in on your mobile screen cleaner and sharper, less noise compared to 2mp resolution.

Siren

The good thing with this Arlo AVD1001 video doorbell is the presence of Siren that can be automatically trigered when there is motion detection by the camera or manual trigger via your mobile device with the Arlo app. This is good as an active deterrent that can discourage someone with bad intentions when approaching your door. Eufy and Ring are not equipped with sirens.
