It seems that Arlo's scheduling feature is as useless as the geofencing. The app tells me that the system is armed yet the cameras remain asleep until I manually turn them on. It started with with one camera but now it is all three. What is the point of having them scheduled for when I am away when I need to manually sync them everytime?

 

I have re-synced, closed the app reinstalled etc, but they still refuse to activate when scheduled.

I've just about had enough of Arlo and I've only had it for two months. Any ideas?

The schedule works fine here. I would remove the schedule entries completely and then recreate it.

I have tried rescheduling that but there is always at least one camera (not always the same one) that I have to manually sync or wake up by going to a live feed. I have given up on anything but arming and disarming manually.  Arlo are charging a premium price on a product whose features only work half the time. I will not be buying anymore of their products.

Hi Patmycat,

 

Have you tried setting the schedule through the web client on your computer to see if that helps?
