Hi, I have had my Arlo Pro 2 System with 8 cameras for almost 2 years, and wanted to make a small change with locations for the the cameras, and so I wanted to change the name for 2 of the cameras, but its not possible. I have removed the cameras from the system, and added them again, but it will not change the name.... Is there any way to reset the camera to factory settings so I can change the name?

You can edit the name w/o resetting the cameras.

 

For instance, with https://my.arlo.com you:

  1. click on the settings wheel for the camera
  2. click on the green pencil next to the current camera name
  3. enter the new name you want.

It is working with my Pro 2 cameras (just tried it using Chrome on a Windows 10 PC).

 

What browser are you using? 

 

If it fails with the app and also with Chrome or Firefox, then perhaps try support: https://www.arlo.com/en-us/support/contact.aspx

I'm not a Mac owner, so I have no direct experience with Safari.  I do know that this works on Chrome, since I just tried it.  So you could try downloading that, and see if that works.  Alternatively try it with the mobile app.
