Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies Recognize Smart Home Security Innovation for Standout Design

SAN JOSE, Calif. — January 12, 2022 — Arlo Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: ARLO), a leading smart home security brand, today announced it has been awarded a 2021 GOOD DESIGN Award from the Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies for its Essential Indoor Security Camera featuring an automated privacy shield.

Founded in 1950, the GOOD DESIGN Awards is an international competition that remains the most recognized program for design excellence worldwide. This year, the Museum received over 1,100 submissions – a record number – representing the best consumer designs for sustainability, superior design and unparalleled function from 50 countries.

“Engineering highly advanced, yet beautifully designed smart home security products that exceed the expectations of our users is what drives our ongoing innovations. This way of thinking pushes us to deliver industry-leading security and monitoring solutions that enable our customers to protect the people, places and things that matter most to them,” said Scott McManigal, SVP of Design and Experience at Arlo. “The GOOD DESIGN Award win for the Essential Indoor Security Camera underscores our commitment not only to innovation, but to protecting and preserving our users’ privacy. We are honored to be recognized for its forward-thinking design decisions.”

Featuring an easy-to-control, automated privacy shield, the Essential Indoor Security Camera allows families to choose when the camera monitors and records video, providing unparalleled peace of mind. When the privacy shield is in disarm mode, recording, motion and audio detection is disabled and won’t begin until the shield is opened by the user via the Arlo App. Users can also signal the privacy shield to open automatically and begin recording by starting a live stream or changing the camera to arm mode. This video-based motion detection technology puts the power in the hands of the users, giving them the ability to decide when their camera is monitoring and when it is not.

The Museum will exhibit the 2021 GOOD DESIGN Award recipients at Contemporary Space Athens, Athens, Greece from June 3 - July 7, 2022.
