Re: Arlo Pro, All Cameras Offline

What app? Have you tried a computer browser? Is it still happening?

Re: Base station offline

I had to call . Told them i had followed all the troubleshooting suggestions to no avail. They told me I will need to remove the base station from my app profile then reconnect.

I don’t think they know what is wrong & are fishing for solutions for free from the community.....

Re: Arlo Pro base not visible via web or App after latest FW update 14/05/2018

This morning mine still was not working after the reported fix. I had to completely factory reset the entire system and re-sync all the cameras, and redevelop the modes. It worked after that. But what a total pain! If I had not been at home, or didn't have a spare 30-45 minutes to reset it all, I would just be out of a security system. Very inconvenient!

I too after the firmware update experienced the same problems. I logged in on pc and could see live few and stayed on it for a few then it did same as on phone app. I called support. They had me try the following 1) on back of base press off the power button and in plug the power cord, wait 2 minuets and plug back in and turn back on. Once all green log in and see if took care.. if not 2) on back of base take needle or paper clip and press in reset button for about 30 secs all lights will go amber. If all turns green login again and see ( my internet stayed Amber and camera too, so had my unplug Ethernet and plug back in... internet turned green camera stayed Amber. If none of this works UNFORTUNATELY you have to sign in go to settings go to my devices and delete then go back and add home base and you will have to re-synced each camera.....( I had to do this) and all is up and running now! A pain!!! Good Luck!’

Re: Arlo Pro, All Cameras Offline

It took 4-6 times of re-starting my Base to bring back all my 5-cams from Offline.. It may take less if you have less cams.. I was getting a series of 2-cams(online), 3-cams(offline) or 1-cam(offline) and 4-cams(online) during the re-set process until it finally brought back all online..

Re: Arlo Pro base not visible via web or App after latest FW update 14/05/2018

reseting the base is not an option !

I would have to do intire setup geo fencing etc etc etc NO WAY

I have 15 cameras this is not acceptable SEND PREVIOUS FIRMWARE BACK IN

i think could be looking at a some kind of lawsuit its been 24 hours and no fixes

have called support 2 times and no help

Base Station VMB4000

Today is the 2nd day showing "base station is offline". no recordings yesterday or today. The base station LED is solid green;

there is an ethernet connection from my router to my base station, but still receive the "offline" prompt. I have done all the

suggested solutions from the Troubleshooting forums, but nothing solves it. There was a red warning banner earlier today noting that the cloud server was having issues, but there is no such banner at this time. Is there something wrong on Arlo's

end or is it my base station. My router is working perfectly fine and the other ethernet/wi-fi connected devices work normally.

Thank you.

Re: Base Station VMB4000

I have exactly the same problem since they had a "firmware" update yesterday.  I have tried everything except a factory reset.  I have a USB in the base and it is recording from the cameras, but it does not show on my phone or computer and I have no "Settings" or Mode on the screen.  All lights are green on the base, but it doesn't sych to the computer, but I can go live and see the picture on the computer??

Re: Arlo Pro base not visible via web or App after latest FW update 14/05/2018

2 out of 4 Arlo Pro Cameras offline since yesterday, we have four cameras, 3 linked to one base station (only 2 of the cameras are online, 1 offline) and 1 camera linked to another base station., this camera is offline.
VMB4000 basestations x 2
Firmware 1.10.0.4_20963
Arlo Pro cameras
Firmware: 1.092.0.13_19715
Service provider BT
iOS
All lights are green and basestations appear to be working normally. However, yesterday 1 camera repeatedly went offline, the message stating: This arlo device is offline, please make sure it is connected to the internet. Now 1 of the trio of cameras linked to the other base is periodically going offline too with the same error message. This just isn’t good enough, these cameras are extremely expensive here in the UK and we expect a better service for something that cost so much in the first place, stating ‘resolved’ on the post when it so obviously isn’t is only going to make your customers even more frustrated than they already are! The fact that I have spent most of the day up and down ladders, rebooting basestations and logging into the modem only to find this post, has made me even more annoyed than I was to start with! When can we expect a fix that actually works? @ChristineT

Re: Base Station VMB4000

I have the same issue since yesterday, it is fustrating. I even did the factory reset and that did not help. Hopefully they can get it back online soon.

Re: Base Station VMB4000

Thanks.... I suppose it’s somewhat ok that I know I’m not alone; quite frustrating; would think Netgear would figure it out after this long. Sigh!!

Take heart!  After trying everything, with nothing working, about 1:00 West Coast, it starting miraculously working.  Hope yours does too.

Re: All cameras and base offline

I checked on both my phone (samsung android) and the web. Both shows my cameras and base station as offline but I can see the cameras that have been shared with me from another user.

Here's another thread on here regarding the issue

https://community.netgear.com/t5/Arlo-Stories/Arlo-Base-Station-Appearing-Offline/m-p/1569578#M488

I think that there were a couple of arlo people Christine T and Dawn M that were escalating with the tech support, maybe try and contact them.

Re: Base station offline

Just an update. After doing everything I could to reboot, and getting no solutions, I did remove my device and add it back. I am not sure what version I had before the issue, or if an update was even run, but after adding my device back I was able to get my cameras back up and running like it was. It even saved my settings so I didn’t have to redo them. All parties with access to my arlo are working too.

Not sure if this will help anyone, but this seemed to do the trick for My House. Good luck y’all

Still nothing, still reads "Your base station is offline". this has been going on for two days. Why did they not test the firmware before sending it out and frustration people. The price it cost for this system, you would think they would have capable techs working there. Tomorrow will be day three and to think I was gonna buy more cameras and pay for this service. Ridiculous!
