Arlo Doorbell has not updatet to newest firmware

@JamesC

My new Arlo Doorbell has not updated to the latest firmware. How is this sent out or what do I need to do to upgrade it.

Popping the batteries out and/or rebooting the base may help.

@jguerdat

That is probably what I will do, but just curious why the firmware was released but never updated.

Sometimes it takes a couple three days for the update to occur automatically. The reboots can cause it to happen right away.

@RChobby

According to the Release Notes, it should be 1.2.0.0_275_250. I am still on 1.2.0.0_215_174. I will probably try removing the battery later today and see what happens.

@brh
Mine is at 1.2.00_261_229. The Arlo iOS app states “no updates available” (doorbell>device settings>device info>firmware). Where on the Arlo website did you find release notes for firmware updates?

Removing then replacing the doorbell batteries did not force an update.
Unplugging and rebooting the base did not force an update.

Oops! It looks like I clicked on the Solved button too soon. When I unplugged my base and plugged it back in. The doorbell became inactive. I had a red icon  with an exclamation point and the message said that the device was unavailable. On a gut feeling I pressd The doorbell button and that activated the doorbell again, but did not update the firmware. Maybe we have to remove the device and reinstall it.?

Perhaps someone at Arlo failed to push the update out.
