How do I refresh the still pic to create a new activity zone from a battery operated Arlo Pro 2? I moved the camera, replaced the battery but the old still pic is there. The latest software took away the camera tab for this. The camera operates perfect otherwise.
Under settings/video settings... click on the camera icon to retake a new pic

Hello Arlo Community, Thank you for sharing your feedback on the recent interface changes for iOS and Android devices that we rolled out with the Arlo App v2.6.0 update. We want you to know that we heard your concerns and our team will work diligently to address them. Your input is instrumental to ensure that our teams are able to continually enhance and improve your Arlo experience through each new update. Android users may already be aware that for the Arlo App v2.6.2 update the battery icon was reintroduced on the devices screen for each camera. We’re actively working on reinstating this feature for iOS devices. Along with the changes to the battery icon placement, the Arlo App v2.6.0 update also included changes to several other status icons including signal strength, motion and audio indicators, quick filtering, etc. Our team is currently working to restore these icons to the main devices screen and we will provide an update when available. We sincerely appreciate your candid feedback and look forward to continuing the conversation with our highly engaged community of Arlo users. Thank you, Arlo Development Team
The invert selection button is gone after app update, so I guess I have to wait for the new updates, it mean time, use the browser to change the still image for activity.
Yeah it does work with rotate image 180. initially it did not work as the it would not connect, so it crashed. and it could not work it with double click
To make it work, have to go to video setting, click on rotate image 180 green, then get out, what it does it refresh the image, then go to activity zones, hopefully it will refresh the image, but flip upside down. press save, dont make new activity zone,
then go back out to video setting, click on rotate image 180 so is not green, then get out, what it does it refresh the image back to normal angle, then go to activity zones, hopefully it will refresh the image by flipping upside down -180. press save, now u have new image in right way, can now make new activity zone.
it is fiddling and long winded
New user. I have fought with this issue following all tricks explained above. No Joy.
Seems App software engineering is having a hard time keeping up with new features and cameras.
This issue would have inclined me to buy another more robust system that isn’t necessarily ‘wireless’.
I have a camera that kept losing the wifi signal and disconnecting itself. To troubleshoot the problem I replaced this problem camera ( call it camera A ) with a different camera ( call it camera B ). Camera B is working good at the old camera A location without disconnecting.
Here's my problem: I had Camera B set up with an Activity Zone at it's previous location. However, now when I go in to try and set an Activity Zone on Camera B it's still showing its previous view and not the new view it's seeing in it's new location.
I've tried everything to reset the Activity Zone View (where the zones are set) but nothing works. I hope you understand what I'm saying in this previous sentence. i.e., the camera's view is of it's last position. For some reason, even though I've moved the camera to a new position the Activity Zone view is of it's previous view. And I find know way to be able to delete it or change it.
Like I mentioned I've tried everything including completely deleting the camera from the Base Station and then adding it back to the Base Station, to know avail. I don't understand, but I will say one thing; this whole activity zone situation is really confusing. One last question: Is there any written documentation that goes into detail about setting up Activity Zones. All the documentation I've found on the Arlo web site doesn't cover anything regarding upgrading to the Arlo Smar Premier or any of the other Subscriptions.
I am not impressed with the cameras, as much as we paid for them, and for the raving reviews it got. I set up a ticket with NetGear support and they haven't called me back. After working with them for over 45 minutes on this, resyncing cameras, Battery in and out, plugged in and not, I cannot get the pictures reset to include our new View under Video Settings, Pan and Zoom. I read a suggestion to click on the camera icon and there is none.
I had to move the cameras to a different area since i first set the cameras up at night, the Video Setting Pan and Zoom view is still set to the night time picture and area it was in over a month ago. This is not what I would expect after resetting etc.
Please do not mark this review as Solved ! Go to the Solution, if this is not fixed with the ARLO company and you are still working to resolve these types of issues with and if you have to figure this out for all customers complaining of the same issue. I am frustrated. Help if you can please. I read you had it resolved in 2016 reviews, so I kept reading to see that you still are working on it.
Bottom line both Android and more especially IOS app are a joke. Almost to the point the don’t seem professionally designed, debugged and tested before distribution. It’s a shame because the HARDWARE is top notch. That’s why I purchased. Unfortunately I had no idea the APPS were rudimentary.
The only reliable way I have found to change your pic (every time) is to do it from a desktop. I am actually carrying an extra Android device to supplement my IPhone because each has a little functionality in different areas.
Since my purchase a few weeks ago, I have dissuaded at least 4 different people from ARLO because of their APPS.
