Just upgraded to cvr on my arlo pro 2 and getting an error message:

Cvr is currently disabled
To enable cvr and activity zones, please connect your device to ac power.

Why do I need to connect to ac power if my cameras are wireless? Please help..new here

It takes too much power to stream continously on battery - if you tried,  you'd end up having to charge up the batteries every few hours.  FWIW, the solar panel won't overcome this.  CVR needs AC power.

 

This limitation is documented in several places including

If you can't connect to AC power, you should cancel the subscription.  Support might be able to get you a full refund.
