We've seen battery-powered spotlight cameras before, but this is the first battery-powered floodlight camera I've come across. It signals a shift away from hardwired and powered-adapter-tethered connected devices -- to devices with more installation flexibility.
The Pro 3 Floodlight Camera is expected to be available this spring and will cost $250.
Here's a look at some of its specs and features:
2K HD livestreaming and recorded clips
160-degree field of view
Integrated LED floodlights
With an optional Arlo Smart cloud subscription service, starting at $3 per month, Pro 3 Floodlight Camera owners will have access to custom motion alerts, 30-day video clip history, the e911 feature that connects to your local law enforcement even when you aren't home and other services.

The standout feature here is the rechargeable battery-powered design. Most traditional floodlights that don't have cameras are hardwired and every smart floodlight camera I've tested (so far) has been hardwired as well. I wonder about the battery life of this device, but that's something we'll just have to test our for ourselves.
