The Arlo Pro 2 is an indoor-outdoor 1080p HD security camera.

It comes with magnetic mounts that you can attach to a wall (or other surface) using the included hardware.

The base station connects to your router and has a built-in siren. 

I don't find the siren especially helpful since it's inside (and your Arlo Pro 2 camera is likely outside), but it could at least alert you inside to something happening outside.

You can get the cameras in packs -- we tested the $480 Arlo Pro 2 two-pack and base station.
