Re: Arlo Baby not connecting to network. No amber light when I switch it off and on
Has Arlo done another update of their software yesterday??? My monitor was working fine last night until it wouldn’t connect to the network. I then deleted it trying to reconnect it to the app and now it won’t connect at all!!! There’s no blinking amber light when I switch it off and then on. I have held the sync button down for a blue light to blink and then scan the QR code to get a chime and then NOTHING!!! Can someone please tell me what is going on
I'm experiencing the same behavior as well. I believe it's an issue on Arlo's end as my network has been up the entire time, there's 0% packet loss, and the wifi connectivity from the router is showing Arlo at 89% signal strength. Trying to validate via phone support but apparently a 10 minute 16 second hold time is acceptable.
Side note - It's probably worth noting if the mods see this the Arlo Baby model ABC1000 isn't even recognized as a model in the text box asking for my model...
Thanks FriscBrah! I’m definitely convinced it’s their end again (has the same issue another time when they did a software update) because I can connect it and play it through the Apple Home app no worries so I know the hardware an connect and the wifi is fine. And thanks for the reply.... I still haven’t heard from Arlo Customer Support - this post, FB and Messenger and nothing. I also tried a live chat and ‘no agents were available at this time’. Like last time it took a week for their tech team to solve the problem.... thank god for Apple!!
Try to set it up on a computer to see if that helps. If you're still having problems with it not showing up on your Arlo Baby, you may need to try doing a factory reset. You can read here on how to do a factory reset: How do I reset Arlo Baby to factory default settings?
Otherwise, you can contact our support team so they can help you further. You can contact our team here: Arlo Support
You should see the reset button on the side of your Arlo Baby. The article I linked above should show you how to reset.
And there has been a recent app update. You can see more about it here: Arlo iOS App - 2.7.10 - 29th May 2019.
Ever since the last app update there has been issues so it’s quite obvious it’s the app that has the bugs. Can you feed this back to your development team and tell us when the next app update will be because it’s now been over a week of it not working!!
I'll add it's getting a bit old having to spend my time redoing the previous troubleshooting steps over and over consideing the cost of the device and reliable wi-fi video isn't rocket science.
I have sent you a private message on Jun 20 but have not heard back from you. If you're still experiencing any problems, please let me know through private message.
