Is so poor for such a nice product.
As a side note, after I purchased my Pro 2 system, I registered and used the first name of Arlo in place of my true first name. Then immediately the next day I started receiving and have not stopped receiving all sort of SPAM EMAILS beginning with “Dear Mr. Arlo XXXXX.” So it seems my registration information found its way into spammer universe.
Anyone else have this issue? Any ideas how my registration information found its way outside of the company???
PS- ARLO PLEASE GET RID OF THE ALARM BAR BLOCKING THE SCREEN.
Nothing at all related to Arlo. It’s all sorts of garbage trying to sell me things and advertising products. Somehow it seems my Arlo registered email found its way into 3rd party use. Because many wete adressed “Dear Arlo..”
Do you know if this update is still going to happen? LIterally ruining the view of my backyard camera in the landscape view.
And yes I have the latest firmware and app version. App on latest ios software on a iPhoneX
Do you not test these updates before release. How hard is it to remove alarm bar in live view?
Would like option to remove alarm buttons from app and disable alarm completely.
This is an annoying issue that persists since May 2018 so it has been more than 6 months and still Netgear has not done anything about it. Do they care about customer support at all?
Get rid of the GIANT alarm bar on top of the live feed. Its terrible and blocks a large strip at the top of the screen. Wish I had listened to the negative reviews online about this system.
alarm bar blocking the screen for an alarm I’ll never use.
useless in rain since the cameras crap out
nightvision average at best.
battery life is....mehhh
ARLO, WAKE UP.
Arlo Pro 2
Whose idea was it to put an Alarm bar at the top of the live feed? It looks ridiculous! and it hides part of the live feed. You should not be hiding any of the live feed. How are we supposed to see everything when something is blocking the view. Grrr! Why couldn't you just add it to the rest of the icons?
This image is from my iPhone X.
PLEASE (please) REMOVE the Alarm Button from iOS Arlo camera view and replace with a button or icon at the bottom of the camera view (with the other icons). The Alarm button blocks out 15% or so of the upper portion of the camera view. I believe this "feature" was part of a recent app update. If you could remove (or relocate) it in the next update, that would be great!
Agree completely. Just got a new Arlo, and right after setup ,the view was great and there was no alarm bar at top of Live view screen. Then I updated the firmware in base and camera and the enormous alarm bar appears in Live view and can't be removed. It takes up a very large portion of the screen. I suppose Arlo did this in reaction to previous comments by people who couldn't find the alarm. But this was an over-reaction.
Please Arlo, reduce the size of the Alarm bar and allow the user the option to move it to another part of the screen or to remove it from the Live view enitrely. Thanks!
Agree with all others on moving the Alarm bar somewhere other than blocking the live view, however here's an interesting note for the Arlo developers - I see the Alarm Bar during live feed on my iPhone 6, but my wife does not see it on her iPhone 10XS Max. We are both running iOS 12.1.2 Not sure if that tells us anything at all...I know Arlo users having these same issues likely have a variety of phones (iPhone, Android, etc). Just found that interesting. Looking forward to a solution so we can all see our whole video picture during Live feed.
Well, full screen views still have that great big ALARM button on it as of this morning. Pretty frustrating for a lot of your iPhone users.
Maybe I didn't see the fix for this fairly ugly thing that blocks our views.
Please put it back as on option button on the bottom of the screen at your earliest convenience.
