We have 3 Arlo Pro cameras and 1 Arlo Pro 2 camera.. The outside temperature here is +2 F, and the temperature has not dropped below that.. I maintain a calibrated Davis weather station and weather website, and know my temperature readings to be accurate.  Despite this, my Arlo Pro 2 camera (and only the Pro 2) is complaining "Your camera needs to warm up" -- I thought this only occured at -4F or colder?  Maybe once every 10 years will the temperature drop below 0F, but temperatures between 0 and +10F do occur from time to time each winter.  Why is this one camera shutting off at 2F?

the -4F is prob the designed settings, but with all electronics there are some variables in the components

It's not an exact science. Anything in the 0 range + or - a few degrees is normal. Lithium's don't like the cold. If the camera was wired with the battery removed you wouldn't need a warm up period.

Think its time for me to move on to regular PoE network cameras then.. The outside temperature has risen to 10 F -- that one camera is still out.  The other 3 Arlo Pro 1st gen cameras have been running continuously through the cold -- they use the same battery. Oh well.
