I just bought a pair of Arlo 2 Pro cameras.  The one camera works fine.   The other camera does not detect motion.   I get an error message that "something else is going on with the camera and motion cannot be detected right now".   What does that mean?   How do I fix?   I looked through the other messages and looked at all the videos and don't see this problem addressed.   Thanks.

The system thinks the camera is busy.

 

Try removing the battery and reinserting it.

Well,  OK - that worked once.   Now the camera won't detect motion again.    I get the same error message "  motion detection disabled due to other things going on with the camera.

 

Now what do I do ?

You could try restarting the base, and see if that works better.

 

If not, the next step is to contact support: https://www.arlo.com/en-us/support/contact.aspx
