Arlo allows up to 5 free cameras. I have those and use 5 for out doors only.

Amazon allows up to 3 free cameras. Those are inside only. I use 3. Their resolution is almost as good as the Arlo indoor cameras, but capture the action just as it happens, Arlos seem to miss the first second or two. I like them better indoors.

I’m getting a new Honeywell 1080p WiFi camera that needs power. Not sure how many I will get free.

When I say free, that is the subscription charge. Many companies charge for the first camera. Blink or Ring may be one of those. The popular doorbell one I think charges for the first ones.

The Arlo outdoor cameras are completely wireless and are very easy to relocate, which I have done many times.

I think all of them I have work with Alexa. I just haven’t set them up yet that way.

I’m getting an Alexa Fire TV box for Christmas, I’ll let you know if that’s all it’s suppose to be.
How is battery life with the Arlo outdoor cameras?
Battery life isn’t bad. I have to recharge mine about every month or two. The come with a charger and use a mini-USB connection to recharge. They mount to a hemispheric magnetic knob so they are easy to take down and put back up, and easy to point.

I use Arlo II cameras and base station at my house. Here is the system I use, and it is expandable up to 5 or 6 cameras: https://www.amazon.com/Arlo-Netgear-Sec ... arlo+pro+2
