Arlo, Bigger Than Avigilon, More Valuable Than Axis

By: John Honovich, Published on Feb 08, 2018

Arlo, the wireless IP camera offering that Netgear bought ~5 years ago for a few tens of millions is now doing more revenue than Avigilon and likely will get a higher market valuation than Axis' $3+ billion USD.

Sounds crazy to those in the professional video surveillance market but that is the details and projections coming forward from Netgear's plan to spin out Arlo.

[Related - IPVM test of Arlo Camera System and IPVM test of Arlo Go Cellular Camera.]

In this note, we analyze Arlo's financials, examine the consumer video surveillance space, compare to other video surveillance major players and explain why Arlo faces major competitive threats in the next 3 - 5 years.
