Extend Range of Cameras (via repeaters)

So far, I love Arlo.  I live in the forest and have a lot of land and distance is what is limiting from creating a security system with Arlo like I truly desire.  If Arlo had a camera/base-station repeater(s) that would extend the range of the cameras and basestation, I feel like it would open up a lot more possibilities.  This would allow you in theory to have many different line of site repeaters between the camera and the base station which would allow you to have cameras over much larger distances.  This would be awesome and really really hope that something like this comes out for Arlo.

Dtarin, can you let me know how you go with your research? 


Fledgling

I am in total agreement with all of the preceding comments.  I have a brick house and diffulty getting a signal to cover its perimeter ... most frustrating!

This needs to be looked at. As stated, whilst the idea of suggesting multiple base stations may sound right, some properties aren't suitable for that application.

I have a garage JUST out of reach of the wifi of the base station, and I can't get a camera out there without buying a second base station, which, as also mentioned before, still needs to be connected to the network, so it'll need cabling anyway, defeating the purpose of having a wirefree setup.

Just my 2 cents

 

I agree, should be a way that developers can create a way that an extender could be added to the ARLO family.

 With the way we are building Homes to withstand bad weather, tornadoes and damaging winds. The walls are getting thicker with foam and steel, there is a need to extend our cameras beyon the distance of today.

4 years after the first post on this was made, I'm still having trouble adding arlo base station to my wifi via netgear extender.  I have a hotspot that I connected it to this way and it worked for a few months then all of the sudden it stopped. Range of cameras and base still needs to be improved somehow.
