I recently bought an Arlo Essential Camera. When I first connected it, it says full signal strength. It still shows full signal strength. I am able to use my siren. It catches motion, but it takes forever for connect to live. Sometimes it even says “failed to connect. Try again.”??

Trev08,

 

This is generally a symptom of a connectivity issue between the camera and the base station/SmartHub. Try moving your base station/SmartHub as far away from your router as possible. Elevating it may also help improve signal strength and reduce potential WiFi interference.

 

Test again to see if you experience the same behavior.
