Hello,

I have read a few posts about cameras randomly turning on despite being disarmed but they date back to 2018. I have Arlo Pro 3 cameras with an Arlo3 SmartHub which randomly turn on despite being disarmed in the App/website. All the firmwares are up to date according to the App & website. The funny thing is, I have an Arlo Baby which even caught the other Arlo3 camera activating on its own and recorded it!

I am disturbed by this phenonemon which happened 4 times at least that I spotted.

Is someone spying on me? Has the camera been hacked?

What should I do please?

Prob not hacking....

I have an Ultra and it comes on for a sec or two on a regular basis as seen in/record by my Q camera....

This is known issue in that the camera may be sort of self checking itself.

 

The question is , How long does it come on for.  If a sec or so no issue IMO, if staying on for a while I would be more concerned,

 

As always, is in doubt, change you PW to a strong one ( letters/numbers/special characters/caps )
