A recent update was deployed to the Arlo cloud that should address the accuracy of Activity Zones. This should improve accuracy by more reliably sending notifications only when motion occurs within defined zones. More work is being done to improve the behavior of Arlo Smart notifications and to fix the Activity Zones error that some users are seeing when not using an AC adapter (battery only). Stay tuned for future updates.
Zones still an issue for me. Plus, now I have one camera that is way less sensitive than the other. Same sidewalk, cameras installed back-to-back, looking opposite directions. If a person is walking down the sidewalk, Camera 1 records, but Camera 2 most of the time does not. Does not make a difference whether the person is walking towards or away from Camera 2. At the end of the day, I may have over 1,000 events on Camera 1, but less than 100 on Camera 2. I've checked all the sensitivities of each Camera, and they are identical. Zones are basically the same (cropped to just cover the sidewalk and omit most of the street). Both Cameras have solar charging panels - Camera 1 battery is almost always dead by morning while Camera 2 is almost always fully charged. What am I doing wrong, or is one (or both) of my Cameras defective? Thanks all.
