Lately when I login and open live view on any of my cameras it triggers an event and records a  video. Just began doing this. Glitchy crap. Anyone else having this issue.

This does not occur on my iPhone arlo app v3.2.

If you’re camera is set to trigger it will record if it detects motion or audio while live viewing.

What event is triggering (motion or audio)?

 

FWIW, my cameras are not doing this.

I have had this happen a few times too...

 

You'll just peek at one of your cameras to see what's going on...and after bringing up a live view, you'll magically get a notification to activity detected on that camera you were looking in live at.

 

It does not happen "all" the time but seems to happen in "spurts"...then it won't do it for a few weeks...and then all of a sudden it will happen again.  It's happened to different cameras on my system, at different times...no rhyme or reason...it's just "Arlo"!!

The camera that you observe the issue, is the motion or audio set active in your rules?

I have observed that when I live view a camera, it can begin with a noise burp that I suggest is left over sound from a previous activation event. If this is the case it could be causing a false audio trigger event.
