Hi,

 

After temperature dropped to -25C the cameras stopped working.

Will they recover themself when temperature raises?

Cameras are running with charger and batteries are in.

 

This is big issue for me as the cameras are at my cabin and there are no-one to reset them after each cold period.

Yes, recovery is automatic when temps rise above ~-20C.

Excellent 🙂

 

one more about the recovery:

I have yellow triangle on the charging symbol. I take that means the battery is not charging?

Being an outdoor camera I find this bit strange.

Using them in e.g Nordics where temperature will be few months below 0C and cold will reduce the battery time make these not so suitable to our climate.

Li-ion batteries have charging issues below freezing. Arlo disables charging then to protect the batteries. However, they should still last a long time (months) depending on your usage (total recording and live view time). I'm in more moderate cold temps with a couple of solar panels that won't charge below freezing but the batteries haven't needed to be charged in a long time.
