I have an Arlo Essential and it does not hold charge for longer than 2 day. I've adjusted the settings for best use but still goes flat too quick and too often. Any suggestions 🤔?

The usual culprits are:

 

1) Too many recordings and live viewing. Spec battery life is based on <5 minutes total per day. Repositioning the camera to eliminate extraneous parts of the camera view as well as reducing the motion sensitivity in your modes and rules can help immensely.

 

2) Poor signal strength/quality due to house construction, distance, objects on/in walls in a straight line between the router and cameras, other wireless devices interfering with the signal, etc. can all cause problems. Bring a camera closer to your router to see if that helps. 

 

Depending on what you find we can suggest solutions if you provide us with all details and maybe screenshots of the camera view.
