Has anyone experienced their cameras going offline once they are provisioned to a new account? Our organization uses these cameras to monitor job sites. We provision the cameras to our Arlo account and then ditribute them to employees for installation. We have had 2 cases where employees provisioned the devices onto their own, newly created accounts before moutning them. We lose connectivity to the device once this happens and it's a struggle to resolve the situation.
My questions are:
1) How can the cameras be added back to the original account without having physical access to them. I know I could have a user scan a bar code, but this entails an administrator sending a picture of a bar code to that employee. Plus, this has impacted several cameras, which would cost us time.
2) How can I prevent this from happening?! This is a huge security flaw. Could anyone with physical access to the device just remove it and then add it to their account. Our organization is paying for the 4G service of the device? It seems that netgear did not consider how theft may impact these devices.
I have reached out to support via phone & chat, but no one I speak to seems to understand the core issue here. They simply state to call back when I have physical access to the device. Very frusturated and looking for answers. Thank you!
Are you using the grant access option when giving access to other people to monitor the accounts? You can have them create new accounts themselves and use the "Grant Access" option in order to limit some of their administrative rights. You can read more about it here: How can multiple people access the same Arlo account?
Yes, we are using the grant access option in order to give others access to the cameras. In fact, this wasn't a variable I considered. The employees that are deploying these units have also been granted access to the cameras with administrative rights. Is this why they are able to re-provisions the cameras? Thank you.
