October firmware loaded: 1.12.0.0_27099

Base station is a Arlo Pro 2: VMB4000r3

 

Camera battery is draining at 20% per day unarmed

 

All cameras are set at optimum power setting but they are draining like MAD. Unable to load an older version of firmware.

What can one do?

Is the signal level good?

since you said Unarmed... how are you disarming? by any chance are you turning off the base??

Sounds like an interferance issue, causing the cameras to constantly contact and reconnect to the base, which drains the batteries. Try moving the base (if you can't move it far at least move it as far away from your router as you can).
