Arlo has updated its go-anywhere security camera with a refreshed design and higher resolution video, though Apple's HomeKit is missing at launch.

The new Arlo Go 2 looks more in-line with the rest of the Arlo lineup with an elongated body rather than the squat body of its predecessor. It connects wirelessly over Wi-Fi or 4G LTE and has a swappable, rechargeable battery.

It's perfect for temporary habitats like a campground, large yards where Wi-Fi or Arlo's range won't reach, or even trails.

There is an upgraded sensor that can now record at up to 1080P and has a 130-degree field of view. Footage can be recorded to an internal microSD card or, with an Arlo Secure subscription, to the cloud for remote viewing.

A built-in spotlight aids with night vision and a siren can ward off intruders. The camera can be located at any time with its own GPS signal.

Even though the Arlo Go 2 doesn't support Apple HomeKit, it does support Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and IFTTT.

The Arlo GO 2 is available now through Verizon for $249.99 with additional carrier support coming in 2022.
