What are my options in using activity zones on my arlo pro 2 when running on battery?

I cant connect it to AC, but i really need to use activity zones for the cameras to be useful.

 

I live in Sweden by the way, if that helps..

Don't think it's the same FW.
I'm on the latest FW in Sweden and it's:
1.125.11.0_21156

And zones don't work for me on battery..

You will need to have the camera plugged in to have access to activity zones.

 

At this time, that is the only way you can use activity zones on an Arlo Pro 2 outside the US.

After reading this, I tried to set up zones on one of my cameras.  It warns me that the camera needs to be powered for this function.  It let me set it up, but gives me an error icon on the monitoring screen and is clearly not using zones on the camera.  

 

The camera has the latest firmware installed.

BobChadwick-GA,

 

Correct. To use Activity Zones on your Arlo Pro 2 you need to have the camera plugged in, or alternatively, you need to be subscribed to Arlo Smart.

Is there any timeline to bring Arlo Smart to the UK?

 

I'm in the process of deciding between Ring devices and the Arlo, person detection would be great advantage of the Arlo
