Hello...

Your practice of falsely showing a List Price for the Arlo products is very disturbing. For example the 3 camera package is clearly NOT $899.99 as show on your web page. A quick check of the actual Arlo product page shows a MSRP of $579.99. Why are you lying to us?

http://arlo.com/en-us/products/arlo-pro/

This intentional practice of trying to confuse and manipulate your consumers is extremely upsetting. And yes, intentional, as your latest email says we get "up to 44% off" for the product. I'd love to see where any of these prices are 44% off MSRP.

Stop this ridiculousness and be honest with your consumer. Don't be jerks.

Later,
Doug

I posted here with hopes there were some Smarthome employee moderators which might read the topic but also to inform the members/community.

Also to be clear: I very much enjoy and promote Insteon products for home automation. They work wonderfully in my household. I was just very disappointed when I ran across the Arlo products.

Arlo pro cannot be priced that high. Other sites play around $500+ only. Though arlo pro's price isn't really that budget friendly. It's mentioned here https://smartrobotichome.com/smart-security-camera-comparison/#arlo_pro. There must have been a glitch or something. I agree with stusviews. Maybe it's best to get the attention of the seller.
