My camera works great. We have twin girls and I use it while I’m at work to watch my wife’s mother baby sit. Looking forward to monitor but otherwise the two second display is hardly noticeable. Keep up the good work!

This is getting insane. I bought this monitor on the understanding that the tablet was going to be right behind it last year. We are now into 2018 with no real update. The app closes half the time midway through the night when leaving it on to hear our baby. Incredibily disapointed and felt lied to time over time.

I was fortunate enough to still be able to return mine.
It's funny that I got an email notification today about a new comment, because I bought a security camera system today. Guess what system I came across but did not purchase?

My wife and I have had the same exact frustrations. We bought the Arlo Baby for 1 Reason:
1) We have all Arlo products in and around the house. We have been extremely pleased with every Arlo product. So we decided to spend the money and bought the Arlo Baby knowing she would be born around August. And would be able to buy the screen around that time.

I must say this has been our one huge frustration. We have no way to watch her consistently without draining our phone batteries. We went ahead and spend another big chunk of change for the Amazon Show just so we would have something besides our phone to watch her. However this not ideal. Really hoping NetGear/Arlo can figure this out quickly. Really has been disappointing for an Arlo customer from the beginning.

Do we have any updates on the tablet?

The display has now been removed from the Arlo website.

@netgear Support: what does that mean for the prospects of the display entering the market soon?

Seriously, what do think in means?

I think they realized they couldn't make it for near the price they put on it.

If you want a tablet, go buy a used Asus Gen 2 (2013) Nexus 7 tablet off of Craigslist for $50, add a $15 case, and uses it exclusively as a baby monitor. It's the cheapest tablet out there with a 1080 or better display.

Did everyone see the pinned post? Sad news but it is what it is. This deal is cheaper than buying a use tablet too

Fyi, that used tablet will get you the full resolution that the Arlo streams.

Resolution:

Arlo baby monitor = 1920×1080

Amazon Fire tablet resolution = 1280 x 800

Nexus 7 (2013) = 1920 x 1200

 

*Still a great deal on a new tablet though, just not for a monitor.

Has anyone been able to get the coupon code? Chat support told me the offer is expired?

bergj,

 

I've reviewed your open support case and it looks like the agent has requested more information. (verification of camera ownership). Please let me know if you need further assistance responding.

Thank you JamesC, after I was told by Chat Support that the promotion was no longer valid, I called the support number and that person has been helpful.
