Broken Product and Extremely Poor Customer Service
I purchased an Arlo Pro 3 Floodlight due to an increase in crime in my area. The camera stopped working after 5 months and after 44 hours on the phone with 3 different technical support specialists, all troubleshooting options were exhausted and the camera still did not work. Support claimed I would receive an e-mail regarding an exchange in which they would send me a new camera, but not a new battery. I did not receive an e-mail regarding this and I still have no camera. My family uses Arlo and I have suggested Arlo to my friends because it has been an excellent purchase thus far, but now I am questioning Arlo due to the lack of customer service and support. What do I have to do to get a working camera? It has been 5 days now.
Thank you. I enjoyed my Arlo product the first 5 months it was working and am hoping to continue. I paid for overnight shipping for a new camera and this one is not working either.
When connecting the camera, it will successfully connect to the 2.4 ghz network, blink blue, scan the QR code and make the chime noise, but the device is never found.
Try factory resetting the camera, press and hold the sync button (~15 seconds) until the LED flashes amber and the camera reboots. Then try setup again, be sure you're entering your network SSID and password exactly as it appears in your router settings.
I've already exhausted the list of troubleshooting options with technical support across 5 hours and various phone calls this week. I tried factory resetting again as you explained and it will still not discover my device.
I have the exact same problem with my floodlight, except I've only had it for 3 weeks. Spent an hour on the phone troubleshooting without any luck. They offered to send me a new one after I mailed them the old one. However, they are requiring that I PAY for shipping back to them for THEIR defective product! I never even got the confirmation email as to where to send it, I had to call again for the address. They should provide a shipping label free of cost. Absolutely terrible customer service model.
