Arlo Revenue up 15.3% YoY in Q3 2022 on Services Business Performance

  • The services segment has been an important driver for Arlo’s profit growth.
  • Expansion beyond the Americas has yielded positive results.
  • New products were launched in 2022 to diversify in the home security space.

American smart home products company Arlo, which is primarily focused on smart security cameras, has reported a 15.3% YoY rise in its Q3 2022 revenue at $128 million. The growth was driven by both its product and services portfolios. Its services segment, in particular, has been driving the spike in its profits in the past few quarters. The other driver for the company’s top line in the past few quarters has been its foray into Europe, whose share in the revenue mix is increasing. In the previous two quarters, the growth was marred by supply constraints, especially higher air freight costs. However, the growth in subscription services partially offset the decline in revenues.

Counterpoint Research-Arlo Total Revenue by Segments, Q1 2019 - Q3 2022, Counterpoint Research_v1

Arlo was spun off from Netgear as a separate company in 2018. Its offerings can be mainly divided into two categories – products and services. Over the years, the products have diversified beyond smart cameras to include doorbells, floodlights and other accessories, the most recent being Arlo’s first security system with a keypad sensor hub and multi-sensors. Arlo’s service offerings include mainly two services – Secure and the recently launched Arlo Safe. While the first one acts as a command center for a buyer’s home security needs, the latter is an on-the-go personal safety app for the owner and her/his loved ones.

Diversification pays off

Arlo has entered new product categories since 2019, like services, doorbells and floodlights, which are also close to its core business of smart home security. It is now reaping the benefits of this diversification, generating an alternative stream of revenues with a share of 46% in 2021, compared to 22% in 2019. Continuing with this trend, Arlo plans to launch three new product service offerings in three years. So far, it has added Arlo Safe and Arlo Secure to expand its revenue from the services segment.

The shift towards the subscription model has led to a jump in both revenue and paid accounts. Services revenue currently accounts for 28% of Arlo’s total revenue. The company’s annual recurring revenue has continued to grow and was at $125 million in Q3, a 56% YoY growth. It is the fastest-growing as well as the highest-margin portion of the revenue and represents the annualized recurring subscription revenue Arlo derives from paid accounts.

To increase subscription-based revenue, Arlo is laying emphasis on direct-to-consumer and strategic accounts. Investments in its website “” have seen positive results, with the share of revenue coming from retail and e-commerce (indirect sales) declining to 43% as compared to 84% in 2019.

The gross profit margin for Arlo was at a high level of 28.7% during Q3. The gross margin is steadily increasing, indicating more profitability on its sales, probably due to increasing profits in the services segments. It is pertinent to note here that the profit share of the services and product segments in Q3 was 64% and 36% respectively.

Even with operating margins being negative from 2019 till today, 2022 has been the best year with the margins ranging between -5% and -11%, indicating that Arlo is on a path toward profitability. Talking specifically about 2022, Q3 had the lowest operating margin, which could be attributed to higher marketing expenses due to the company’s “protect your everything” campaign.

Counterpoint Research Total Revenue by Region & Paid Subscribers, Q1 2019 - Q3 2022, Counterpoint Research_v1


Focus on increasing subscribers, EMEA remains fastest-growing region

Region-wise, Americas has been stable with a share of around 55% this year. The agreement with Verisure has brought significant returns for Arlo. The EMEA region now contributes 41% to Arlo’s revenues, which is a significant increase from the end of 2020 when the share never went beyond 25%. Arlo also got into a partnership with Calix last year to ensure accessibility of its products to remote and rural areas. The partnership entails Calix integrating Arlo services into its platform for broadband service providers around Canada.

Arlo had 500,000 paid accounts in March 2021 which rose to 1 million by December 1, 2021. In Q3 2022, the number of paid accounts stood at 1.67 million, a 91% YoY growth. This has also meant a boost for the annual recurring revenue. Arlo is one of the few companies to reach $100 million in five years.

ARPU has also been a new focus area for the company. At the end of 2021, its ARPU was $9.35. The ARPU was seen to have increased after the launch of its new emergency services, Arlo Secure, in 2021. In Q1 2022, the churn rate at 2.8% was one of the least compared to other companies which have a subscription model. Arlo also sees an 80% gross margin on retail and direct paid accounts with a low churn rate of 1.2%.

Cash flows decreased in Q3 due to increased investment in inventory, which was at $73.2 million. This increase in inventory was due to restocking in anticipation of the holiday season and to meet consumer demand in Q4 and early 2023.

Counterpoint Arlo Partnerships

Conclusion and future outlook

  • Global partnerships, especially with Verisure, have yielded positive results by allowing Arlo to expand into Europe. The strategic partnerships with T-Mobile, Verizon, U.S. Cellular, Celcom and Bell Canada have also been successful. These partnerships are important for Arlo to tap untouched markets as well as indirectly develop brand awareness.
  • Arlo is transitioning from a pure hardware company to a services business. It is working towards converting its hardware buyers into subscribers. SAAS will remain a focus for the company and other competing firms as differentiation in products like smart cameras has become difficult, but differentiation in services is much easier.
  • A successive increase in ARR and cumulative registered accounts since 2020 is an indication of the above. It is a high profit margin area that Arlo is leveraging, but it must diversify its product portfolio as the service revenue is dependent on it. Arlo will continue to innovate in its products to maintain the existing consumer base and subsequently increase its subscriber base.
  • The supply chain for Arlo as well as other security companies was first affected by COVID-19 and then the Russia-Ukraine war. With the easing of the impacts of both, the industry as well as Arlo are expected to come on track and post better results in the coming quarters.
  • In the near future, Arlo is expecting a volatile market due to inflationary pressures and fears of a recession. Therefore, it has taken steps to cut down on its operating expenses. Arlo paused its marketing campaign “protect your everything” at the end of Q3 to prepare for a bleak macroeconomic future. The company is also expected to reduce its headcount, office leases and outside service, steps which may temporarily impact its growth but not by much.

Major trends in market

  • Devices supporting digital assistants: Voice control is no longer confined to smart speaker devices. Digital assistants are increasingly becoming integrated into multiple home devices. This has led to greater consumer adoption. For instance, realme Smart Plug comes with Google and Alexa support. Similarly, we have thermostats (Ecobee), smart locks (August), and routers (Netgear) supporting digital assistants.
  • Wi-Fi 6 gaining popularity: Wi-Fi 6 chipsets and modules are now being installed in emerging smart home devices. For instance, Samsung’s latest 8K QLED TV is the world’s first TV to feature Wi-Fi 6 with a Mediatek chipset. Besides, we have seen routers from Netgear, Xiaomi, Linkys, TP-Link and D-Link supporting Wi-Fi 6.
  • Touch displays as user interface: Smart displays are primarily smart speakers with a display attached to them. Smart displays will act as the primary user interface, a central hub to control all other smart home devices like lights, TVs, fans, security cameras and door locks.
  • Introduction of Wi-Fi mesh systems: With the increasing number of smart home devices, having one Wi-Fi point in the house is no longer good enough. To be able to run more devices simultaneously, wider coverage is needed. Therefore, Wi-Fi mesh systems are increasingly becoming popular, as they help get rid of the internet dead zones or dead spots to provide seamless wireless coverage. Various brands like Netgear, TP-Link, Linksys and D-Link are launching Wi-Fi mesh systems to expand their portfolio beyond traditional routers.
  • New ways of monetization: Traditionally, we have seen brands offering a subscription model in which customers are required to pay a fee for a constant value. However, now companies are increasingly looking to identify new ways to monetize smart home technology, like service bundling, launching audio ads and using IoT data.

Emerging opportunities

  • Shift from devices to services: As device margins are fading away slowly, in the coming period, from a brand perspective, the focus will be more on the stickiness factor by offering innovative solutions and value-added services to customers on top of the device sale.
  • Role of advertising: Advertising will have a central role in smart homes. Advertisers will acquire vast amounts of consumer data and use advanced AI or ML algorithms to serve relevant, customized ads to users at appropriate times.
  • Offline retail is critical: Retailers can play a vital role in smart home adoption by launching consumer experience zones. This can be accompanied by promotional discounts, targeted marketing campaigns, and device bundling offers. For instance, Amazon provides a bundling offer of Echo speakers with Philips Hue bulb.
  • Connected lifestyle experience: Device makers have an opportunity to differentiate themselves and broaden their customer base by opening new product categories and expanding their product portfolio to offer a seamless connected lifestyle experience.
  • Tracking usage patterns: Businesses can utilize the vast amount of IoT data generated through systems and sensors to track consumer behavior and buying patterns. The data can also be used to improve customer experience and boost sales by offering proactive services like preventive maintenance and sending reminders through emails or calls whenever there is a shortage based on the customer’s usage patterns.
  • Content generation and storage: The increasing amount of data generated through smart devices like security camera generates strong demand for remote storage and access. Therefore, there is a growing potential for cloud-based players to enter this market, form partnerships and offer multi-device cloud-based solutions to their customers.

Challenges ahead

  • Compatibility: There are several different apps and various protocols which are used to manage and control smart home devices. Therefore, incompatibility is the biggest concern in smart home technology.
  • Security and privacy: Nowadays, a smart home collects and transmits data to servers to enable communication between sensors and applications without any user control. This may consist of sensitive personal information depending on the source and application type. To solve the problem posed by this critical privacy risk, there should be a privacy-aware context-sensitive framework that enables users to define privacy preferences for different settings.
  • High cost: The price point for certain categories of smart home devices is still very high for mass adoption. Companies need to launch devices that are cost-effective. Amazon and Google have shown some positive movement in this regard.
  • Connectivity: Network connectivity is one of the most common issues faced by smart home devices. This can be solved by switching to a better wireless router or a Wi-Fi mesh networking system to have consistent connectivity throughout the home.

The smart home market is still in a nascent stage. However, it is growing rapidly due to both demand- and supply-side push. Wi-Fi is going to be the major driver for growth. Cumulative shipments of Wi-Fi-capable smart home devices from 2020 to 2025 are likely to cross the six-billion mark. This fragmented market represents a billion-dollar opportunity for many players, including component suppliers, device manufacturers, retailers, platform and cloud partners, and telecom companies. The future of the smart home is built on two important factors – seamless integration and network connectivity. In the coming years, we estimate that the use cases will also start evolving to include areas like content consumption and e-commerce.
