My Arlo Pro 3 Floodlight is going off line. It is located on the front corner of my house. The WiFi signal is good. The light is high up so it is not that easy to remove the battery etc. There also is a solar panel located right next to camera. How do I fix the issue with it going off line? I have two arlo cams and they are fine.

How is the floodlight connected - WiFi or to your hub/base?

I would test the WiFi signal at the camera location using a WiFi app on the phone. The particular location may be the issue due to house construction, objects in and on the walls/floors between the router and camera, wireless interference, etc.

 

It may also be worth a try to connect to your base rather than WiFi. Beware of any trial subscriptions for the camera, though.
