Video with faster frame rates is better.  

Night vision

Security cameras are mostly equipped with IR LED to provide black / white night vision, so are Wyse and Kasa to provide b / w night vision. On the other hand, Arlo is equipped with a spotlight @ 14lux that you can turn on via the app when it’s dark or it is triggered automatically when motion is detected. With spotlight turned on, the Arlo camera provides light around it so that it can render color night vision.

Storage

All video clips that are sent to your mobile device when motion is detected as alerts, are stored in memory storage either on the local SD memory card in the camera or stored in the base station or stored in cloud storage. Wyse is equipped with an SD memory card either on the camera or at the base station so you don’t have to subscribe to cloud storage like the Arlo and Kasa.
