Can't get it to even do the initial connection, first time out of the box.... I even separated my 2.4 and 5 ghz channels so I could try on each channel and still nothing. I get to the screen after the QR code on my phone screen and when my phone is trying to detect the monitor... lasts for about 5 minutes then says not detected....

Try using a computer browser.

I am having the same issues. It will no longer connect to either of my routers.

 

I have tried using the app and also the browser, I go through the motions and it detects the Q Code and Chimes and then it just takes ages before it fails to connect.

 

This is what I have tried so far

1. Firstly made sure everything was connected to the same router

2. Using the app to connect - Result = Fail

3. Using the Browder to connect - result = Fail

4. Reset Baby Arlo, used both app and browser to connect - Result = Fail

5. Tried to connect to the second router and made sure everything was connected to that router - Result = Fail

6, Powered off Baby and powered back on, reset again, rebooted pc and phone tried all above Again = FAIL

No, Not yet, I haven't had time to get onto them. My son just received his NDIS Plan and I have been trying to sort that out.

I am using one of mt Arlo Pro 2 cameras for now..
