Hi everyone.

 

I finally figured out a long standing issue issue with my Arlo Essential cameras on a Ubiquiti's Unifi routing and networking platform. 

 

If you use Unifi for your routing and wifi, set a maximum of 2 DNS name servers on your network settings for DHCP. The Essentials doesn't like more than two DNS name servers and will cause network connectivity and discovery issues.

 

I wrote up a detailed technical post over at Unifi's forums. (mods I hope this is fine to post, but if it isn't please let me know).
