Re: Video takes 2-3 mins. to load into library after notification from camera.
It is infuriatingly slow to get a livestream from phone and computer, it gets stuck on "Connecting..." when pressing the play symbol.
If somebody rings my door (and get spotted with my Pro 2, connected with AC so not battery) they will have walked away before I can get a live stream to see who it is. Can I do anything to speed it up? Notification of detected movement is almost instant.
I have good reception and a fast internet connection.

I’m thanking once again our monthly system update professionals. Your update has tanked. I no longer can open up a live feed near instant. It takes up to 30 seconds and freezes up where it will not scroll. My cameras DO NOT FUNCTION as before. Last motion on a busy street today was yesterday, with dozens of motion opportunities. I wish Arlo would stop using 5 yr olds to design the software updated, this is such a joke.
I completely agree with you ScottMc1. I have noticed over the last few months, daily connection issues, extreme delays trying to access a live feed and random colorful haze picture when I try to view a recording. Whatever system updates ARLO has been doing is rendering my product almost useless to have. God forbid in a security emergency, I can guarantee at least 2-3 min delay to view a notification before I know who is on my property. This is very similar to the iPhone tactic when they launch a new product, the older models "tend to stop working as efficiently" out of nowhere.
I am going to look for a new security camera company before I would update my ARLO products.
My router and everything (else) connected to it works fine and I have a high speed connection.
However all equipment including my router and all Arlo cameras/basestation is rebooted. Batterypowered cameras (2/5) are fully charged.
There have been multiple posts from users with this problem. We have all spoken to customer service and done
all the same things to try and correct this issue. When I get a notification that there is movement at a camera
and I can't see the video for 2-3 minutes, there is a problem. This started about March-April timeframe. I never had
an issue before so some update or change has triggered this problem. I consider this a real security issue when
I can't see what or who is causing the motion at a camera. What is it going to take for Arlo to address this issue?
Worst system ever. Just when I think things can't get worse, they do. So disappointed in this awful app, full of glitches, never catches the key moments that are the sole purpose of having these cameras.
Hey Arlo, when are you going to do something to fix these problems? You've been having the same posts for years, which are getting closed "due to inactivity", but the topics being posted are all covering the same issues! I honestly question if your company even strives to offer any real form of customer service whatsoever.
As I wrote in my first post I have the latest version available on Google play, for now it's last updated 25th of June (2.18_28040 and auto update is set to on).
Please escalate this issue beyond first line of support with your standard questions, this is way past that.
In March of this year, I started noticing changes in the system. The video was taking 2-3 minutes to load into the
Library. A lag time for a camera to come back on line when the battery was changed. If you search the community you
will see others having the same problems. I have received posts from babyduke and Drydry81 saying they are
having the same issue. Recent Arlo reviews also show customers with this same problem. I have to tell you, it is
very nerve racking to get a notification at 2 am from a camera and not be able to view the video for 2-3 minutes.
I am having this same problem but yesterday, it took a full 10 minutes!
It seems like if I close out the app and sign on again, they will all show up but that in itself takes time.
What is the remedy for this?
Look at all of the consistent problems people are explaining. The issue is clearly from Arlo’s end, not from ours.
It has become clear to me that Arlo will never fix these issues - it’s been this way for years. I only wish I did my due diligence better and read these community posts before investing in 7 cameras to make sure my 90+ grandmother on the other side of the country is safe. Such a waste.
for quite some time now, my live feed will not load consistently. If it does load, it takes several tries and 30+ seconds to load or i need to close the app entirely and start up again which still doesn't help sometimes. It's not a wifi problem as nothing else regarding internet has had any changes as to access or speed. my phone is updated to date and the arlo app is the newest and updated one as well. is there a way to fix fast connection or response speed? does a subscription help speed? is there perhaps settings that i can adjust on my router to help the arlo base connect quicker?
I've been having the same issue with mine. Almost a year old and it has been working fine up until a month or so ago. I'm almost ready to turn it off and purchase something else that would be more reliable. I wish there was a fix for this. Maybe their way to get us to upgrade to arlo3.
I then rebooted my router which helped kinda. I’m on IOS 14 so it’s still slow for me but my wife is on IOS 13 which seems to be ok now. Not sure if it’s IOS version issue at this point for me. Might be worth trying a network reboot.
