Re: Awful battery life from audio door bell
fade up with 1.3 doorbell - requiring battery replacement every week. shall I through away this product, which I bought about 3 months back and replace with some other better brand.
I have tried all different sort of batteries - normal AA batteries / duracell extralife / duracell power plus / rechargeable. None difference. currently using rechargeable batteries - it lasts 48 hrs. really annoyed. I want to refund this product. This has worked properly for initial two months - troublesome for last 3 months.
It is not far from base and wifi - less than 5 feet and just one wall in between. the position has been same since installation.
now I have kept motion triggers off. speaker audio volume 0. Don't accept call - decline it and open the door (obviously).
having read on community page and witnessing trouble my-self for so many days - I don't think so it is a good product as such.
Thanks for the update, It sounds like you might be having some type of wireless interference being so close to the base station. Is it possible to move your base station further from your doorbell just to test for a few days and monitor the battery life? Do you have the latest version of firmware installed for you Audio Doorbell: Arlo Audio Doorbell AAD1001 - 126.96.36.199_314_287 You can find this by navigating to Settings > Device Info > Firmware.
