I have my Arlo Baby camera device turned off through the app but the battery continues to drain/die. Is this normal?

How do you turn the Baby off??

Do you know there is a battery switch under the feet too?

( btw, the battery will last only max about 6 hrs in day and 3 at night ( ir adds drain), so they don't last like the regular camera batteries )

Thanks for the info! I just figured having it off in app (where it says the camera is off and not detecting noise and motion) should be enough. I don’t want to have a Camera that won’t turn off VIA the app when that’s the suggested way to power off. I’m hoping my device isn’t broken.

Yes turning the baby off via the app is enough... ( even tho the baby does have a couple extra settings or custom settings )

But, the baby is meant to be plugged in all the time as it continues to record into it's buffer to add to an actual trigger event.

So if the baby isn't plugged in, then yes the battery will drain fairly quickly.
