Right. Great. But, can you stream two Arlo Baby Cameras at the exact same time on the device... seeing the streams on a "split screen" type of view?

(This would alleviate having to switch back and forth between two cameras.)

Thank you!

I've seen that the Arlo Baby 7" touchscreen Display has been marked as "coming soon" for some time. I would like to purchase the Arlo baby camera along with the touchscreen display. But I would need both products. Any clue as to how soon is "soon?" Are there any other Arlo displays available other than using a mobile device which isn't a closed circuit connection and isn't always running. Thanks

I do not have an exact launch date at this time. The current target for release is Q3 of this year.

After further verification, I've been informed that the Arlo Baby touchscreen monitor will be able to stream two Arlo Baby cameras simultaneously.

Thank You

So....just noticed this on the product page....

 

"This Arlo Baby combo set will be available for purchase in Spring 2018. Join our pre-order list for future updates on availability!"

 

What is going on? I bought into the Arlo Baby system - as I'm sure many others did - because of the dedicated display. This is a REQUIRED part of a baby monitoring system. Another 6 month delay is unacceptable.... please update.

It's almost mid-September.  Is this thing EVER going to be released?  If I don't get a definite answer in the next week, you've lost my business Netgear.

Yes this is not good. I'll have to start looking into something else

Another delay? I guess they need another 6 months to make sure that turd is nice and polished.

Spring 2018?!?!  @JamesC - Care to comment / provide an update?  (And don't tell us Q3 again).

 

Sounds like Netgear ran into some major issues for the monitor.  Common sense tells me that if the bundle is not available until Spring 2018, the standalone monitor is also not arriving until then.  AFAIK, there's no practical difference between the bundle and standalone.  The pricing is even the same as the two products individually.

 

Sorry, but unless there's a major change (like immediate availability for purchase) in the next week, I'm taking my business elsewhere.  Netgear, you've lost my business.

The release of the Arlo Baby touchscreen display has been delayed as further development work needs to be done to bring the product’s performance to a level that we believe will satisfy our users’ expectations. With the touchscreen display, our goal is to offer a monitoring experience which is simple, real-time, and reliable while still allowing our users to access the smart features Arlo Baby has to offer. We understand that this delay may be causing disappointment amongst our existing Arlo Baby users and we ask for your patience while the Arlo team works on perfecting the product’s performance. In the meantime, we recommend that you use a tablet, if available, as a monitoring device.

Is there any chance at getting a date/range? Are we talking next month or two, or 2018?

 

Thanks

Can anyone recommend a cheap alternative tablet as I do not currently have one? The posts on this forum suggest that the Amazon Fire Tablets do to support push notifications from the Arlo app.

@adambean The site says the bundle package (cam + monitor) will be available in Spring 2018, so I wouldn't expect anything until at least summer 2018.

With that kind of timeline I wouldn’t be surprised if a new camera gets released with the tablet.

Hello -

Wanted to see if there is a more recent update on the release date for the Touchscreen that accompanies the Arlo Baby camera? It's nearly the end of 3Q 2017 so hoping to get a more definitive date.
Thanks!

This is ridiculous and borders on fraud.  Is Netgear going to do anything to compensate all of us who bought in to a promised system?  My child will be a year old by the time you release.

Fraud?  Really?  An announcement, regardless of whether a projected date was "promised", hardly constitues fraud.  Better consult a legal dictionary.

If you don't think repeatedly stating a critical accessory is coming in just a few more weeks while someone who bought in to the system with the promise of a complete product rolls past the return period for said purchase "borders" on fraud, then perhaps you should consult a legal dictionary. I have over a $1000 invested in Arlo and Baby was the deciding factor in taking that plunge. You don't just all of a sudden decide you need six to nine more months to deliver a product... They had to have known there were serious issues and could have made everyone aware a long time ago instead of stringing invested users along with this coming "soon" nonsense.

Time to take a breath.  There are so many more important things to hyperventilate about.  Sure, it would have been nice to have a product as originally scheduled but do you want a proper product or not? Maybe there are design issues, production issues, components not available, whatever. 

 

It's not even close to fraud.  It's simply a missed target and you're making all kinds of unsupported suppositions.
