Yes. It was bad enough every time I got a notification, opened the app, got rid of the two step notification, then it takes a few seconds to connect to a camera, if it even does because they don't always connect right away while recording. But now every time I open the app I have every camera telling me activity zones don't work on battery. I've never even tried to use that feature. They fix one thing and break another.
If this is a pay to play effort by Arlo, I am tossing them out. Will not put up with these money making schemes.
The AC disconnected problem is with the Lasted Android app update and Arlo stated they are aware. It is not a money making conspiracy scheme.
Yesterday I started receiving message: AC power has been disconnected from your Arlo device. Activity Zones are currently disabled. I recv it for all 5 of my cameras. Today I'm only receiving it for three of the cameras. I'm not showing the message when I access from my computer, only from my phone app.
If you haven't noticed the lack of Pro-2 stock, they are trying to discourage Non Subscription, all the new stuff is just about Subscription Only. I would like it if Arlo just gave us an Update Option to self Monitor and use our own Library for Video Storage. That way they could get rid of us nasty "Free Loaders ! I bought Arlo Pro-2 for the Free monitoring/Cloud abilities. Its a great System to catch the Neighborhood Dirt Bags and mine has caught a bunch. Our Street is a "No Fly Zone" for the hoods, one Guardian even told his child you should have seen all the Cameras and gone someplace else in my presence.. Now we have several Pro-2 Houses down the street !
I am also getting the "AC power has been disconnected Activity zones disabled" error on my Samsung phone and not able to get rid of it. I reset my base station but that didn't help. As I read in the messages here, I tried my Samsung tablet. It too was displaying the same error in all 3 of my cameras but in the tablet, when I click the [OK] button, the message disappears and I was able to get my camera working properly again. In the phone, I pressed the [OK] several times but nothing happens. The error message just does not go away and all 3 cameras are just showing the error message.
Yes, I get this message on the 3 cameras. However by clicking on the numbered icon in bottom RH corner I get to see the camera working as normal.
Same here....fine on my laptop version. It's the app that is messed up.
Obviously AC power is not used on wireless cameras....so why are we getting this useless message right on top of our
That method doesn't appear to be live camera viewing. On my app it only takes you to past recordings in the library. With the error message bug, live viewing doesn't seem to be possible with the affected cameras.
I found a solution to the problem....uninstall the app. Then download an old version from APKmirror and install.
This got me back in business until Arlo can post a fix.
I am having the same issue, just started today (10/18/20) and my Android software was updated on 10/1
6/20. I cannot get rid of the message "AC Power has been disconnected from your Arlo device. Activity Zones are currently disabled". I do not have Activity Zones set up, and do not see the option to do so in the Arlo app for any of my cameras.
I noticed that the message will go away when the camera is plugged in for charging, but this is not helpful for actual use of the camera...
